So as you know this half of Pampered and Polished has moved back to NZ, well let me tell you the weather Gods have not been kind to us this southern hemisphere summer and I have been trying to counter-act the gloom by wearing bright candy pink lipsticks, which will be perfect for you lucky northern hemisphere lovelies going into spring!

Three Candy pink lipsticks for spring

Three Candy pink lipsticks for Spring

The three lipsticks I have to show you all have fairly similar texture, they’re all moisture-rich gloss finish lipsticks (event the Australis lip crayon at the top).

Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick 625 Magenta Divine is the least glossy of the three candy pink lipsticks, it has the most traditional creme lipstick finish. It’s a beautiful bright quite warm candy pink colour and is a really moisturising formula.

You can buy Max Factor Colour Elixir lipsticks online at boots.com and they cost £7.99

2. Australis Showstopper Gloss Stick in Fairy Floss

Fairy Floss is a bright barbie pink lip crayon. Despite the pencil format the texture and consistency of the Australis Showstopper Gloss Stick in Fairy Floss is rich and creamy with a lovely glossy finish that isn’t drying at all.

3. Maybelline ColorSensational Juicy Bubblegum lipstick

Juicy Bubblegum is a lovely pale candy pink lipstick.
