A Rosy Outlook

Rose is one of those shades in makeup that will never go out of style. While I've often thought of rose lipsticks and blushes as a more 'mature' color choice, I've come to learn that there are so many different variations on the shade that you're bound to find one that works for your skin tone, age range and occasion. This post is dedicated to a few of my favorites.
Clockwise from left:
CHANEL Rose Initiale
Dior Cherie Bow
Milani Romantic Rose
Revlon Teak Rose
Givenchy Rose Dressing
Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose
Lancôme Beige Adage

Surprisingly, I don't own very many rosy blushes. The two I have are CHANEL Joues Contraste in Rose Initiale and Milani Romantic Rose. The former is a fresh petal pink, while the latter is a rosy nude. I've been wearing Rose Initiale quite a lot lately, and I particularly like that the pigmentation is medium but buildable, allowing me to control the brightness according to my mood. Romantic Rose is one of those 'goes with everything' shades that you can't go wrong with.

In terms of lip options, rose is a theme that continues to run rampant in my collection. Dior Addict Extreme in Cherie Bow and Lancôme Lip Lover in 332 Beige Adage are neutral, medium rose shades with a touch of nude. Both are everyday staples for me. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose is a bright, blue-toned medium pink that's beautiful in the spring and for transitioning into summer. Givenchy Le Rouge in Rose Dressing is a pinky coral that provides the perfect amount of color while still being suitable for daytime wear. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Teak Rose is a shade that can border on matronly worn on its own, so I prefer to dab it on with my finger and top it off with a nude gloss.
