Tickled Pink - Some of the brightest pink lipsticks around

Having already raved about the Rouge Terrybly By Terry lipsticks, I thought this might be a good opportunity to show you how they compare to some other pinks I have. Nars Schiap is the most famous of the group but some of them even put this classic in the shade. I've ignored lighter colours as the whole aim was to give you a better idea of the exact Rouge Terrybly lipsticks that I have. It can be hard to tell when pictured together but hopefully with the addition of some other brands, it will be of more use.

Although at first glance the pinks all look, well, pink, you should be able to tell that some are considerably warmer than others, some have more purple, some more white in etc.

Here is another look at the swatches in direct sunlight, the above photo was taken in ordinary daylight. The swatches to the right of the picture look better but that is no reflection of the quality of lipstick, they were just done on smoother skin!

If this has been any help, I will try my best to do a similar post on some of my red lipsticks. The major issue I have had with the Rouge Terrybly shades is that I have been ordering online and although most have been great, a couple of colours I have been very surprised by. Even when I looked in store, not all the testers were there so it doesn't seem an easy task to get comprehensive swatches!

  1. Oooh, I love pink! I have so many pink lip glosses and lip sticks, it's insane. I don't have Nars Schiap though! I think it would make a nice addition to my collection ;)

  2. What a beautiful collection you have there! Not even sure which one I like the best. Was looking at the swatches without reading the names, turned out I've chosen By Terry and Tom Ford. Why, of course, they had to be the most expensive lipsticks x

  3. I adore colors like these, but they are too vivid for me. It's easy to see which ones you like the best. :)

    And YES, do post about your red lipsticks!

  4. Hi
    This is a great post! They are all gorgeous shades - I love bright pink lipsticks too. In fact I have some of the lipsticks that you have in your collection. One of my all time favourites is Funny face from Nars, have you tried it? I seem to keep returning to it.
    I look forward to you doing a post about your red lipsticks too (another favourite!!)

  5. Kat - Nars Schiap is such an iconic shade, I definitely think it is worthy of a purchase!

    Marina - It's just a sign of your good taste! x

    Zuzu - I definitely will do a post on reds, I was looking through some last night that I had completely forgotten about. It always amazes me how much variation there is between shades.

    Anon - I think I had Funny Face in a Nars lip palette that I no longer have. From memory, I think it is much less chalky than Schiap, less white in it? I will have a look out for it next time I visit Space NK. I could happily wear bright pink lips all day everyday if only I didn't have the worry of getting lipstick on my teeth!

  6. Fantastic post thank you so much for doing these swatches. I've been looking for a post like this ALL SUMMER! I think my faves are Chanel Super 167, Nars Shlap (which I've never heard of!) & By Terry Torrid Rose. Actually Cherry Cherry is gorgeous too - I'd like that for winter. It reminds me a bit of my Lipstick Queen Saint Rose, which I adore.
