There’s no wrong time to wear pink lipstick, but Spring might be the best time! We’re still in seasonal limbo, split between short-sleeve and heavy jacket weather, but I’ve started packing away my winter gear and breaking out some of my springtime favorites – including my favorite pink lipsticks. I swatched five pink lipsticks that I think you should try, this Spring. Check them out and see which one is your favorite!
BUXOM Full-On Lip Stick in “Las Vegas”: Applying this light, muted pink lipstick is a breeze, because it’s closer to the shape of a large lip liner. The site describes this as a vibrant pink, but it’s really a lot softer than that. My favorite thing about these lip sticks is the minty, tingly sensation that comes with it.
Kat Von D “Sexer” Studded Kiss Lipstick: Subtly iridescent, vibrant pink with opaque coverage. I’m a huge fan of the everlasting liquid lipsticks, and find the studded kiss lipsticks to be hit or miss (some of the darker shades are a little tricky)…but “Sexer” is definitely a hit.
MAC “Chatterbox” lipstick: You know that I usually go for matte finishes, but this amplified creme, perfect pink lipstick has been in my makeup bag for years. Not literally this one, of course…I’ve bought quite a few, over the years;)
Melt Cosmetics “Stupid Love” lipstick: Speaking of matte lipsticks…if you’re looking for vivid or unusual matte colors, Melt is where to turn. “Stupid Love” is a neon pink lipstick that makes most bright pinks look downright pastel.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in “Michiyo”: Though this is described as a “shocking” pink lipstick, I would call it a medium fuchsia. It’s a gorgeous color with a buttery finish, and just one coat gives full coverage with no streaking. I love the Audacious Lipsticks – I’ve gone through three tubes of Brigitte, alone!
