Random Pink Lipstick Swatches

So, I already admitted that I put a good deal of obsessing time into planning what to wear to the Lippie wedding. Would you believe me if I said I didn't invest a similar amount of time into deciding what makeup to wear? No, I didn't think so.

I decided I wanted to go down the matchy, matchy route and wear a pink lipstick to match my accessories. These are a couple that I auditioned for the part.


The swatches aren't an exact match for the group above. I didn't included swatch of the OCC Lip Tars but you can find swatches of Pretty Boy and Strumpet here. I decided that the Lip Tars were probably inadvisable as they do feather on me and I need to purchase something like the Lipstick Queen invisible liner to feel confident wearing them. The Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Lipstick in Aquarouge on the far left is a bit of a rogue as it's not a pink, but I love the colour.


From left to right: Kevyn Aucoin Aquarouge, Barry M Punky Pink, Edward Bess Night Romance, Butter LONDON Lippy in Snog and Hourglass Femme Rouge in Nocturnal. I've included links to previous posts which all include lip swatches.

In the end I went for a combination of the Barry M Punky Pink topped with Eos gloss from the LMdB Aurora Lip Kaleidoscope.

What's your opinion of matching your makeup to your outfit? Is it truly as naff as the magazines would have us believe?


  1. I think it really depends on the outfit. But that lipstick is amazing! love it x

  2. I don't think it's bad at all!! And it depends on the wearer, and the outfit!! I tend to try to not so much match lippies, but to do my lips in a similar, complimentary color family as my outfit if that makes sense. Love the combo you chose!!

  3. what a beautiful lip combo, the barry m lipstick looks pretty. I rarely go matchy-matchy though, makeup - yes but I think I am not wearing loud colours anyway (clothes) so I don't think it looks off, haha.

  4. I wish I could apply lipstick as precisely/perfectly as you. Looks so pretty. That color is fantastic, and I bet it looked great with the belt. Perhaps matching isn't advisable if you're wearing entirely one color--for instance, had your dress been pink, too--but matching an accessory? Why not.

  5. My favorite is the Kevyn Aucoin Aquarouge, though I love the way you combined Barry M Punky Pink and Eos gloss, look great!
