Top 5 Tuesday - hot pink products

Now that it's almost summer in Australia I can't wait to get some of my bright colours out of storage and start playing with them. And what better bright colour than hot pink?

These are the top 5 hot pink products in my make up stash.

NARS "Desire" - This looks quite scary in the pan, but with a light hand it looks absolutely beautiful and gives a fresh healthy look to the cheeks. HERE is the original review.

Illamasqua "Grab" - I've had this colour for quite a while and used to wear it all the time, especially when I knew I'd be too busy to change my nail colour often enough, as this lasted on my nails without chipping for up to  days (with top coat). HERE is a NOTD with this colour.

OCC Lip Tar "Pageant" - This is my favourite colour from the OCC Lip Tar range. You can use it as a stain or as a full on opaque gloss and it's extremely long lasting. My only complaint with this is that towards the end of the day it leaves a weird dry ring around the inside of my lips. HERE is a post that has swatches of it on my lips.

MAC "Pink Nouveau" - This is a mid toned hot pink and it's surprisingly wearable. It's a satin formula which can become a bit drying after a while, but because I love the colour I'll put up with the dryness.

Lime Crime "Countessa Fluorescent" - I'm not game enough to wear this one often. It requires a lot of confidence to pull off as it's very bright-look-at-me-I've-got-barbie-pink-lips. But I do admire this on others quite a lot, so I'm hoping I'll use this more often come summer. HERE is the original post with FOTD.
