I haven’t seen this much pink lipstick since the 80’s when the only way to wear it was with crimped hair and blue eye shadow. Today’s pink lipstick ranges from soft matted pinks to bright fuschia and are being worn by everyone from Kim Kardashian to Rihanna. This uber girly shade is the perfect color this season and instantly can brighten up your summer look.
Although my go-to shade will always and forever be red, it’s been my experience that a strong lip color in any shade can add an air of confidence similar to how we ladies feel in stilettos. Pink is the perfect hue this season for a lighter, less dramatic look and perfectly transcends from the office to happy hour.
When trying out a new lip color I prefer to start with the less expensive brands to see if I’ll wear it. At a recent trip to CVS, I picked up this L’Oreal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in pink topaz for under $10. Although it claims to be an 8-hour gloss, I think the only way it could possibly stay on for 8 hours is if you didn’t eat or drink anything during that time. That said, I still love a good gloss and this one goes on beautifully, stays on for quite awhile and the color is amazing.
My next stop is the Giorgio Armani counter at Saks for a hot pink long-wear lip stain!
