You may have noticed that Gwyneth and I have a penchant for pink. (Was it our pink door that gave it away?)
So when e.l.f. Cosmetics asked us if we wanted try out some of their shades to find the perfect pink, we said yes immediately and have spent the better part of the last week applying and reapplying lipsticks, lip glosses, blushes and nail polishes.
When it comes to our favorite color, we don’t like to discriminate. So selecting “The Perfect Pink” was a true challenge! We decided the Essential Lipstick in Sociable is the perfect summer date night shade, the Studio Blush in Pink Passion goes head-to-head with the legendary NARS Orgasm (and it’s $25.00 less expensive!) and even though it’s a darker shade, the Passion Pink Nail Polish just won’t chip.
And those are just our runner ups. Here are the shades we’re calling The Perfect Pinks:
Because they’ll work for day and night & work and play, we’ve decided that the Mineral Lipstick in Pouty Petal, the Glitter Gloss in Twinkle Pink and the Studio Blush in Fuchsia Fusion are the perfect pinks for your lips and face.
Now for nails!
We cheated here because we picked two colors - Essential Nail Polish in Flirty Fuchsia with Coral Dream as accents on the ring finger and thumb.
