All My Pinks: Pale Pink Lipsticks (1/3)

This is the first of three posts regarding my pink lipstick collection! First picture shows all the lipsticks I'll be reviewing. Three parts: Pale Pink Lipsticks, Toned Down Pink Lipsticks and lastly, Bright Pinks.
L-R: NYX Sparkling Red Lipstick, NYX Tea Rose, NYX Paris, NYX Fig, NYX Spellbound, Revlon ColorBurst in Carnation, MAC Viva Glam Gaga, MAC Chatterbox, Revlon Pink in the Afternoon, Revlon Twinkled Pink, TFS PK101 Moisture, TFS PP401 Semi-Matte
I'll be reviewing three lipsticks for the Pale Pinks. These are MAC Viva Glam Gaga, TFS PP401 Semi-matte and Revlon Twinkled Pink.
First off, the famous MAC Viva Glam Gaga (VGG). This is my go to lipstick when I want a toned down look but not too bare! I could practically wear this from day to night and doesn't dry my lips. It doesn't last that long on my lips, though. I like it because it's creamy and glides smoothly. No problem with this one. I definitely love it and I hope this won't go out of stock.
Second one is the Revlon Twinkled Pink. Yes, I know, it has a bit of frost but totally gorgeous in person. Just don't over apply it and it'll be amazing. This lasts longer on my lips and though it's a bit frosty, you need to apply 2-3 times to get a color because this is sheer. Pretty color but sometimes too loud.
Lastly, the TFS PP401 Semi-matte lipstick. I think they were kidding when they said it's semi-matte because this is as matte as you can get! As you can see in the picture, no shine, no frost, nothing. Just pure color which I totally love! It's a bit paler in pictures but amazing in person. This is a keeper. I just hate the scent. :|

So, which one to choose? I definitely recommend the TFS semi-matte lipstick and the MAC VGG. Those two are my go to lipsticks for all occasions that need pale lips! You can't go wrong with these two! Just be careful with the TFS lipstick because they're a bit drying but the color is amazing. For the VGG lipstick, the problem with that is it's not readily available here in the Philippines.

What do you think?
