Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair (This is the only question I didn’t struggle with in this poll…Lol)

Favorite pink lip product? I can’t decide between Chanel La Rafinee Rouge Allure Velvet and MAC Mehr. Or maybe MAC Creme in Your Coffee, Chanel Mademoiselle Rouge Coco, or NARS Anna. This question is too difficult. (I’m assuming fuchsia is a whole different category.)

Favorite pink cheek product? Clinique Berry Pop and Chanel Joues Contraste in Pink Explosion (My favorite is NARS Orgasm, but I think it is considered more of a coral, right?)

Favorite pink eye product? I’ve just looked through my collection and have come to the conclusion that I’m not big fan of pink eye products.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair-light skin with yellow-olive undertones. Of Chinese descent 😀

Favorite pink lip product?: Peripera’s Ink the Airy Velvet in Elf Light Rose. Perfect for either a full pink lip or a gradient lip. I’ve always preferred Korean lip tint formulas over traditional lip products since they do not transfer and they fade gracefully (if they fade at all).

Favorite pink cheek product?: Currently loving NYX Sweet Cheeks palette. The bright pink in the palette is adorable and very, very pigmented!

Favorite pink eye product?: I really like Love in the Norvina palette. I’m really excited for Sultry and Naked Cherry. Peachy/pinky eyeshadow looks are super trendy in China right now and they flatter my skintone really well.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones and freckles, warm brown hair, green/gray/blue eyes

Favorite pink lip product? Milani Amore Shine Lipcolor in Idol and L’oreal Colour Riche Shine lipstick in Burnished Blush. Both are deep enough and warm enough for my liking. I’m not a big fan of pale pink lips on myself.

Favorite pink cheek product? Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten in Pink Buttercream and the original Pat McGrath pink highlighter (not sure if the new ones in the set are the same formula or not). That highlighter is STUNNING.

Favorite pink eye product? Soft Pearl and Iced Rose from the Lorac Pro Palette 4, VR Nectar and VR Astral Ghost Orchid from the Pat McGrath Mothership Sublime palette, Colourpop Fluffy supershock shadow, L’oreal Infallible Paints Metallics in Rose Chrome, and the pretty shimmery pink shade in the Huda Beauty Smoky Obsessions palette.

I’ve found that I like my pinks to be a bit warmer generally. Very cool pinks just don’t look great on my skin tone.

Skin tone: fair/fairest with mauve/plum undertone. Seriously, I’m far more purple than pink.

Favorite pink lip product: Urban Decay Rapture (Vice lipstick). Yes, I know it’s mauvey, but straight up pinks look weird on me. Favorite liquid: Nars Bound.

Favorite pink cheek product: I have enough red in my face that I don’t wear blush, so I’m going with Stila Transcendence.

Favorite pink eye product: for pink eye colors, I tend to go either dark or loud. ABH Love Letter is my current favorite.

Claire Renee Avatar

My coloring is fair/warm/NC15.
Fave pink lip: MAC Lovelorn
cheek color: MAC Well Dressed
eye color: MAC All That Glitters (not really pink but true pink would make me look like a rabbit)

Mariella Avatar

Okay, if All That Glitters counts, then count me IN as it’s one of the shadows I really love. And, like you, I also look like an albino rabbit in pinky pink shadows; I have TWO pans of Totally Fetch from Too Faced that are untouched!.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral
Favorite pink lip product? Necromancy Cosmetica Mugwort
Favorite pink cheek product? Dior Nude Luminizer in Pink Glow
Favorite pink eye product? ABH Rose Gold from Norvina palette

AB Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm ~NC10; blue eyes, light brown hair w/copper highlights

Favorite pink lip product? UD Lovelight, a peach pink.

Favorite pink cheek product? Few pure pinks look good on me. I’ll go with Laura Geller baked blush in Pink Grapefruit, which is pinky peach.

Favorite pink eye product? Viseart Liaison (in the Tryst palette)

Mariella Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite pink lip product? if it counts as “pink” it would Guerlain’s Champs Elysees lipstick (discontinued, I think)
Favorite pink cheek product? only one??? MAC Into the Pink or TF La Vie en Rose (DC) or Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush or MAC Sweet Sentiment
Favorite pink eye product? No such thing for me, really. I think the only wearable pink shadows I use are so white as to not look pink at all. I do have MAC’s Et Tu Bouquet? and while that one is wearable, I don’t often reach for it as it’s in a palette I rarely use.

Lt to med, red u/ts. ( idk why they call it cool, but it is the antithesis to yellow.) Mauves are fine, but any pink beyond medium, and warmer look really bad. The only ones I seem to be able to finesse are Bound and Sake. The sheerer, the better. Cheek: I have some in palettes, but do not to get singles. Dustier roses are better. Pure pink, warm pink, hot pink…not so much. Yes, this was a menopause/age issue. I could wear pink in my 40s, just fine. Eyes: much more comfort with pinks for eyes, such a small area. I like lots of the ones mentioned, in small doses, and prefer when they lean gray or purple. Coral is far more problematic. Orange looks better than pink, which looks better than peach, and infinitely better than coral. It has been an adjustment, believe me.

Favourite pink lip product? I don’t use pink lip shades at all, my closest would be a rosy nude – Maybelline’s Untainted Spice.

Favourite pink eye product? Again no pinks – but I do like (now) a touch of plum.

Favorite pink eye product? I have a distinct lack of pink eyeshadows in my collection! But one stand out is the shade Twenty One in the Revolution x Soph Extra Spice Palette. It’s a very pigmented deep pink. I love it even though it stains my contact lenses if I wear it on my lower lash line lol.

Favorite pink cheek product? All of my blushes are some variation of pink – I really like NARS “deep throat”
Favorite pink eye product? I tend to not wear a lot of pink on my eyes, but the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara packaging is pink, does that count?

Jane Avatar

Hmmm, pink’s not really my thing, but I do have pink products that have worked for me:

Skintone: yellow-neutral medium (NC37ish)
Pink lip product: Bobbi Brown Tube Tint in Pink Cloud 17
Pink cheek product: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink
Pink eye product : Never, simply never have tried pink on my eyes, but if I ever do, likely NYX Halo/Chrome shadow or a Pat McGrath one, either in a white-pink duo chrome for the brow bone.

Skintone: Fair neutral
Fave pink lips: neutrogena moisture shine stick in soft raspberry, too faced creme lipstick in clueless
Fave pink blush: dior rosy glow 00
Fave pink eye: hands down, no question colour pop super shock in slave 2 pink… I have 3 back ups and have been through 1.5 already! I love love love this color!

Alecto Avatar

Well … in theory this should be easy, as I have so few pink products, but since it’s not a color I’m fond of, “favorite” is a strange way to think about any of them. I’ll give it a shot …

Your skin tone/coloring: light to fair yellow/gold

Favorite pink lip product? “Dead Roses” by ABH

Favorite pink cheek product? Surprisingly, I’m actually torn here; it’s a toss-up between “Caring Is Not An Advantage” and “Fortuna,” both from Aromaleigh

Favorite pink eye product? I forced myself to pick something that isn’t from Aromaleigh, so I can’t claim this is my favorite, but it’s a contender: “Good Little Girl Routine” by Notoriously Morbid; a very dark plummy pink that looks either purplish or slightly brown depending on what I use it with — a very chameleon color
