Hi, everyone! As promised, my Lip Stash by Hue series continues! Today's post features a collection of white-based pinks that channel the ultra girly feel of Barbie dolls, cotton candy, and soft flowers. They range from sheer pastels to pale neons and all work to bring cheer and brightness to the face. While I don't reach for this range of shades super often (I'm more drawn to fuchsias and bright coral pinks), but I had lots of fun playing with these!
The softer, more sheer baby and cotton candy pinks in my stash are:
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aventure
NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie
MAC Amplified Cream Lipstick in Chatterbox
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream
MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Lipstick in Sunny Seoul
And the bolder, more opaque Barbie pinks in my collection are:
Wet N' Wild MegaLast Lip Colour in Pinkerbell
Illamasqua Matte Lipstick in Immodest
Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart
Here are all of the lipsticks lined up, followed by swatches of each on my inner arm (MAC NC15 skin tone) in the same order:

And finally, each of my Barbie, baby, and candy pink lippies in the context of a completed makeup look!

(yes, you're seeing right- I've completely finished it!)
|NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie|
|MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Chatterbox|
|NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream|
|MAC Cremesheen + Pearl in Sunny Seoul|
|Wet n' Wild MegaLast Lip Colour in Pinkerbell|
|Illamasqua Matte Lipstick in Immodest|
|Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart|
|Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart|
If you want to feel instantly girly and playful, these are the shades to reach for! As you could see above, I've completely finished Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aventure- it is such a sophisticated, easy to wear pink and has been a staple for me at work. I will be buying a replacement! Both NYX Peaches and Cream and Vanilla Cream Pie are totally lovely, lush glosses and Revlon Sweetheart Balm Stain gives the prettiest popsicle stain on the lips. And while Illamasqua Immodest and Wet n' Wild Pinkerbell are full-on intense neon pinks, I find them surprisingly easy to pull off!
Do you have any of the lip products I featured here? What are your favourite soft, candy, or doll-like pinks?
Have an amazing day :)
