Pink Lips




as you can see i was inspired by garance doré, i love her illustrations and my drawing style is greatly influenced by her, as you can tell by this picture. i did this one in photoshop with a graphic tablet. i love to paint this way, though i still have my little problems with it. but no one is born as a master and i'm still learning. 

i love pink lipsticks, they look so fresh and glamorous without looking too fierce. they are the perfect option to red and make you look younger and happier. 
i own more pink lipsticks as i want to admit, in every shade and with different undertones. but i have two favorites. here they are for you.



the yves saint laurent rouge volupté shine nr. 12 is my favorite lipsticks of all. i love everything about it! the light texture, the color and of corse this luxurious looking golden tube. it was the first one i tried and what can i say, love at first sight. it's perfect for every day with it's sheer color, but when layered also the perfect choice for an evening make-up. 
the only thing i have to criticize is, this lipstick smears and runs pretty fast when you don't wear a primer under it. but that is the only disadvantage...ok maybe the price is another one as well^^ i paid 32 euro for it, but it's worth every cent! 



the other one is a more affordable one from astor. it's a lipcolor butter and very shiny and light, but has a full coverage. it feels like a very light lip balm, but the color is so vibrant, like it says, ultra vibrant. thats definitely true! the price lies around 7 euro and is more than ok. 
but this lipstick really needs a lot of dedication. once applied it will stay true to you the whole day. it's like the pigments sink into your lips, even when wiped away with make-up remover your lips are still very pinkish.

  2. Sehr schön gezeichnet, aber pinke Lippen sind nicht mein Ding. Auch würde ich wohl niemals so viel Geld für einen Lippenstift ausgeben. Aber den Beitrag finde ich trotzdem sehr gelungen.

  7. Hallo Melanie,
    was soll ich sagen, ich bin begeistert von deiner Zeichnung und von wegen es ist noch kein Meister vom Himmel gefallen. Gefällt mir sehr gut.
    Pink steht mir eigentlich nicht, aber vielleicht sollte ich es doch mal ausprobieren. Mal schauen. Jedenfalls danke für den Tipp.
    Viele Grüße
