Baby pink is probably my favourite colour for blush, I’m really pale so I feel like this is a safe choice for me. I own quite a few from all different brands. The ones I’ll be showcasing today are Benefit Dandelion, Natural Collection Pink Cloud and MAC Well Dressed.

Dandelion comes in a 10g box and is available from benefitcosmetics.com, Boots and Debenhams for £23.50. Pink Cloud doesn’t say the amount on the pot but it is only available from Boots for a mere £1.99. Well Dressed comes in a 6g pot and is available from maccosmetics.com and MAC stores for £17.50. As you can see they vary is size and price quite a bit.

These are obviously applied much more heavily than I would on my face! They all look very similar in the pan but once swatched you can see that Well Dressed is completely different from the other two. It has much more shimmer and is much more pink.

Pink Cloud could be a dupe for Dandelion as they both turn a bit peachy once applied, however Dandelion does have a shimmer to it and Pink Cloud does not but I think it’s a good cheap alternative if you don’t want to shell out £23.50 or have sensitive skin as Dandelion is perfumed. Pink Cloud is fragrance free. Something to note with Pink Cloud is that it doesn’t last all day but for the price I don’t mind having to top up in the afternoon.

My favourite out of these three would have to be Well Dressed as I do love a bit of shimmer. It also comes out the most true to colour in the pan and the most pink!

Have you tried any of these blushes? Or do you have another baby pink blush that you always go for?

Viva Glam Nicki is the new Viva Glam lipstick for, you guessed it, Nicki Minaj. This is available on the MAC website and in stores for £13.50 for (I think) the next year.

It has Nicki’s signature on the tube and like all Viva Glam lipsticks 100% of the money goes to their AIDS charity.

It is described as a yellow pink and it has a satin finish. It’s one of those “kind of matte but not quite” lipsticks.
This is very bright, so won’t be for everybody but I quite like it and I don’t think I have anything else like it in my hoard/collection.

This looks so different when swatched on my extremely pale skin to how it looks on my lips!

I’ve also included a full face shot so you can see what it looks like properly. I don’t normally do these because I always seem to be pulling some stupid awkward face!

I swatched it next to the other Nicki Minaj lipstick from MAC, Pink Friday, in case anyone was wondering how it compared to that.

As you can see they are totally different shades of pink.

If you’ve got any questions about this or want to see it swatched next to something else, I’ll try my best to help, just leave me a comment, or if you prefer you can always email me.

I don’t ever actually celebrate Valentines Day even though I’ve had a boyfriend for the past 7 years but Valentines nails are cute so I thought I’d just go with it for once!

I used Models Own Hot Pink and white acrylic paint.

I’d love to see your Valentines nails 🙂
