The Vintage Pink Malden Debate

Hello everyone. Now this has got to be the most random blogpost I have ever done. I'm wondering if all of the uni work iv been doing has actually taken my sanity.
But here goes...................
The Vintage Pink Meat Comparison Test
Am I insane?????!!
It all started yesterday on Twitter, when we were talking about the vintage pink Malden. I love my Marco Malden to bits. However, it seems to have a marmite effect. You either love the colour or you don't. In fact the colour has been compared to the colour of meat (it doesn't look like meat in my opinion). So that got me thinking. Compare the Malden to meat. Now this is where you start thinking "did she??". Well yes I did.

Here goes. Last night for tea I had steak fajitas. So here is Marco with sirloin steak.

This photo was without the flash.

And this one was with the flash, just to be fair.

Not the same in my opinion
Then I thought maybe natural light may make a difference. So for tonight's tea we were having cottage pie. So out came the minced beef, and Marco.

Once again, without the flash.

And then with the flash, just to be fair.

So. What do you think??

Does the vintage pink Malden look like meat?????

Feel free to comment below.

I look forward to seeing people's thoughts on this.

And also whether you think ive lost the plot for doing this.

  1. Liking your review. I'm rather glad my A5 Vintage Rose Malden doesn't look like raw meat too ;)

  2. You're mad as a box of frogs!! :-)

    Caribbean Princess likened it to Pepti-bismol...

    As long as you like it, that's what matters.

    1. You have to be careful with the 'box of frogs' comment where I live remember I'm under deep cover behind enemy lines!

  3. I actually think the meat is a prettier color! Especially the steaks. Hmmm.

  4. I think it's gorgeous and not at all "meat like" I think a pink one probably has to come live with me. Thanks, I love love love this post! :D

  5. It does look like meat, COOKED meat! More precisely a medium cooked steak. I'm telling ya!!!!

  6. It will vary with the colour temperature of the lighting. A bit like my Grey Maldens, under some light they appear black to the camera and the naked eye too

  7. I'm with Jotje - medium steak. And this post has made me want one now (even though it is only 8:40 in the morning... :o)

  8. Thanks for making me laugh :)
    I agree with Jotje that it looks more like cooked meat to me! It's a nice colour, but I'm too much in love with my crimson.

  9. I've read many posts on FF's that made me go 'ooooh', but I can't remember reading one before this one that made me laugh out loud.

  10. Haha. It was a very strange day leading up to that blogpost. Quite a lengthy debate on twitter had occurred. :) xx
