Are You Passionate for Millennial Pink?

Holy hole in a donut! Millennial Pink. It's so hot right now! Well, to be fair it's been hot for a few years, but it's like in recent months the shade has snowballed in popularity so that no matter where you turn it's there.

So what is Millennial Pink? I mean, pink is pink, right? Well, not so much. Millennial pink covers a spectrum of shades from candy floss pink through to a more peachy pink. On the outside it's a feminine shade, but it can rock an edge when it wants.

So what's Millennial Pink-hot in beauty land? Check these prettylicious treats out...

O.P.I Not So Bora Bora. I want this on my fingers. Right. Now. Total M-Pink. Would look good in winter or summer. Is sweet, but not sickly. Yes. Yes. Yes!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Pink Reflection isn't just a delightful lip gel that will leave your lips looking smooth, shiny and touch plumped - it's also beautifully on trend. And would look super cute coming out of anyone's handbag.

Not only does Colourpop's Super Shock Shadow in 'Bubbly' smack of all things millennial and pinkish, it also has pink and silver glitter. Which means I really should be not writing this article and creating myself a wee Colourpop cart. Where are your priorities Tabby? Sheesh.

Estee Lauder Modern Rouge may feature a red top and name, but the shade of the perfume is pure Millenial Pink. 

If you're more of a candle than a  perfume kind of girl, then Mor Little Luxuries Petite Candle in Belladonna would see your coffee table, bedside table, mantel piece (or wherever you keep your candles) looking brilliantly on trend.

Pretty much a goodly chunk of Soap & Glory products can be considered part of the Millennial Pink crew. That packaging... it's swoonworthy. And the products inside? Awesome. (Who else is glad this is now easily available? Thanks Mecca Beauty!)

Technically it's job is to wash away all traces of makeup and grime, but we think what makes the Xtend Your Youth A3 Power Foaming Cleanser from Dr Brandt that much more wantable is the shade of the product. How pretty would it be sitting on your bathroom basin? So pretty. 

So do tell, what are your thoughts on all things Millennial Pink? Does the shade inspire you to buy products? Or do you not care one way or the other? Chat away!

Absolutely gorgeous. It feels lighthearted and pretty :)

Love. It's the colour would have me sold I live pretty things.

Heart eyes! How pretty is that pink eyeshadow and nail polish.

I love and miss that body butter. I do like pink lippies .

Just wait until Mecca opens in Auckland, Macs!

Oooooh love the look of the Estee Lauder Perfume and the colourpop shadow. Bet if you mixed the shadow with your favourite lip gloss it would make a fabulous lippy. I've never been a massive pink fan but I've noticed a few gorgeous shades coming out that I would be keen to try. Jeffree Star Dreamhouse I think it is called is another gorgeous pink too.

Really girly which I love.

While some of these look pretty, I've never been a pink girl

I 100% agree about the pink OPI polish - loving it! I've always been cautious with pink because I already had enough trouble with the baby-faced cute thing going, but over the past year or so I've unlocked my inner pink fan and have realized what pinks go with my skin.

The actual colour of the estee lauder perfume is the prettiest pink ever. One of my fav perfumes in terms of colour. Pink isn't my fav colour (purple is) but I have a surprising amount of pink things.

I LOVE all things pink, but that nail polish is especially pretty. Might have to hunt that one down to add to my already huge collection.

That nail polish would look fab with dark jewellery and a dramatic eyeshadow with just a touch of the colour pop to soften the look.

It's such a happy colour!

I have the body butter, it's good stuff! I don't think the color inspires me to purchase stuff but then I'm more about ingredients than packaging.

I've always loved pink. Millennial Pink looks like what I call 'Barbie pink', especially that OPI polish. And I love Soap and Glorys packaging.

Yes there's something about Soap and Glories packaging that sucks me in every time
