  5. Supremely gorgeous, as usual! I can't decide which family I like better! Both fruits are also delicious, too, so that's not helping me, hahaha.

    1. Hi Larie, thank you!! I know what you mean, I like all of these colors. I love Guava fruit but am only used to eating it cooked, like in cakes and jam. Mango is awesome sliced over vanilla ice cream! :)

  6. I love both of these color families, they're just so darn wearable! I have been thinking about buying Deb Lippmann's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun for soo long, I really just need to give in and do it already! Thank you for this fabulous comparison post!

    1. Hi beauty-obsessed! It's a really pretty color. You could probably find something similar for less, but I love the Lippmann bottle and the quality is usually great! :)

  7. So many beautiful juicy colours! When I think of them as just "pink", I don't care for them. Call them "guava" and suddenly I want them all! lol A lot of them kind of clash with my warmer skin but I bet they look stunning on you. Thanks for sharing these goodies with us! <3

  9. What a completely gorgeous and enviable collection. All the colors look so beautiful lined up that I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite! Speaking of guava and mango, I went on a horseback trip today and saw a number of the wild mango and guava growing in the Hawaii rainforest. It was fun to come back and see this post :)

    1. Hi Replica, lol, thank you! To be honest, I've never tasted a raw guava so am not sure what it's like. I've only tried it cooked. In Miami we eat a lot of pastries filled with guava jam and cream cheese, called pastelitos. So good when served warm out of the oven! :)
