Luscious Pink Lipstick for Summer Lips
It was Audrey Hepburn who uttered those timeless words: “I believe in pink!” More specifically, we think she might have been referring to one thing in particular: pink lipstick.
Few things can be more cheerful, carefree and unabashedly feminine than a slick of gorgeous pink lip color. And at this time of year, it can’t be more appropriate. The palette this summer covers everything from soft, pastel baby pinks to bold, electric fuchsias and everything in between.
We’ve rounded up the pick of the bunch in the season’s loveliest shades. Whether your preference is for hyper-pigmented long-lasting matte formulations or more dewy mega-watt glosses, these are the most luscious pinks to coat your lips in this summer.
With the slick, dewy consistency of a lipgloss, you’d be forgiven for passing this one off as a temporary color fix. But L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paint in Spicy Blush packs a powerful punch. Think of it as a liquid lipstick minus the drying matte finish.
Apply one coat of this formulation and you’re left with a rich glossy shine that’s moisturizing and long-lasting to boot. Best of all, this drugstore pick won’t break the bank either!
We’d be remiss not to mention one of the best-selling lip colors of recent time: Kylie Jenner’s popular Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Koko K. The color is a true matte nude with touches of mauve and pastel pink.
The added fact that it comes layered with blue undertones makes it perfectly suited to all skin tones (not to mention that it makes teeth appear whiter too). Keen to sample the must-have shade? Add your name to the waiting list – this one is in high demand!
The name Charlotte Tilbury has become synonymous with celebrity makeovers and red carpet overhauls. Everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Amal Clooney has found themselves under the London beauty guru’s famed makeup brush. So you can be assured that her very own range of beauty products will have that superstar allure, and then some.
Take her limited edition Matte Revolution lipstick. It has the familiar comfort and ease of a traditional lipstick but with the long-wearing staying power of a matte liquid formulation. The lipstick wand itself has even been designed to emulate a lip brush, providing that neat, precise application that only a professional makeup artist can deliver. In a gorgeous meeting of rose meets coral, the shade Sunset Lover is a sure winner for summer.
Nature’s Little Helper
When a new formulation of lip color is announced that delivers extraordinary color, durable staying power, and moisturizing benefits, you’d best believe the beauty community will sit up and notice. Enter: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick.
Natural ingredients like pomegranate and rice extract combat free radicals while candelilla wax and silicone oils do their bit to deliver high-resolution shine. The shade No. 6 Pink in Devotion is our choice for the perfectly pink summery smolder!
