Lip Stash by Hue: The Peaches

Hi, everyone! Had a busy day today (or yesterday, I suppose- visited the One of a Kind Show with Jenn and Vanessa- more on that in a future post!), so I'll keep it short and sweet. My lipstick swatch-a-thon continues and today's entry is all about the peaches! Turns out the peach portion of my stash is rather sparse, but nonetheless offers quite the nice variety. From sheer, peachy nudes to opaque retro hues; from Revlon to Chanel, my little capsule offers it all! 

The peachy lip shades in my collection are:

Chanel Levres Scintillante Glossimer in Zephyr (limited edition)
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine (limited edition)
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in Tender Peach (discontinued)
Dior Addict Lipstick in Bobo (discontinued)
Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

Here are the lippies all laid out, followed by swatches of each in the same order:

And each in the context of a completed makeup look:

Chanel Glossimer in Zephyr

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine

YSL Rouge Volupte in Tender Peach

Dior Addict Lipstick in Bobo

Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I hope you enjoyed this peek at my peaches! (I also hope that didn't sound dirty, eek). I didn't realize until writing this up just how many of these were LE/discontinued. So for those saying that these lipstick posts are far too enabling: you're welcome! The only shade of these still available is entirely affordable :)

Overall, I don't reach for peaches often, but swatching each of these has reminded me just how lovely this hue is for Spring. I have to say that my favourite all-rounder of the bunch is Dior Bobo (it also wins weirdest name), as it has just enough pink, sheerness, and shine to make it perfectly wearable!

Which of these lippies is your favourite? What are your go-to peach lipsticks?

Hope you're having a great weekend! xo


  1. So pretty!!! I think the only peach I have is Peach Parfait... and then I have straight -orange- haha.

  2. I love those lighter peaches for spring!

  3. I love those lighter peaches for spring!

  4. Hahaha that did sound a *tad* dirty, and that made me completely laugh. And I LOVED seeing each of them on the same makeup face- it's crazy how different they make the eyes look! I thought I liked the YSL one the most, but on the lips I think i like NARS the best. I obviously like the lighter ones :)

  5. "Peek at my peaches"! That just made my day!

    As you said, this isn't a colour we see you in often, but it's quite flattering regardless. Yet again, I think the NARS one is my favourite on you!

  6. This is such a great read! Very lovely photos too. Happy Monday dear! :)

  7. Oh man, everything does look so much more pigmented on you! Torres del Paine is really not a good shade on me. It's sad because I really want to love it! I don't own a lot of peachy shades at all. I mean I like them, but they never really stand out on my skin tone! Love these on you tho!

  8. I don't really wear peachy lip colour either, but I actually really like these! My favourite is the NARS!

  9. Okay, but -- can we talk about that purple eyeshadow for a second? Because it is GLOWING. You look like an amazing magical fairy princess and I love it a lot. :D

  10. Peach and purple - AHHHH! Lovely lovely combination! Also, wow - you pull off peaches really well! I have a hard time with them :( Love NARS Torres del Paine on you the most!

  11. Peachy! Tender Peach is so pretty on you!

  12. They all look great! I think YSL is my fav. I usually bypass peaches, but I think I will give them a try.

  13. Until I scrolled down to read it was discontinued, I was like "I'm going to need that Bobo lipstick."
    I looooove the pop of lavender on your lower lashline, by the way!

  14. I seriously can't even pick a favourite. They are all so gorgeous :) Also, I love the purple highlight under your eyes, very pretty!

  16. How dare you tempt me with this discontinued beauties!!!! I love the lilac liner under your eye too. Such a lovely combo!

  17. YSL Tender Peach is stunning! That will definitely enter my list to purchase.
