What’s the second best makeup product ever invented after blush? You guessed it… lipstick! Choosing the right lipstick is basically like choosing between life or death. Okay it may not be as important as that, but picking the right shade that will compliment you is still pretty important!
Pink looks amazing on all skin tones, but finding the right shade is the tricky part. You can try other colors like reds, purples, etc, but pink is always a good go to! The secret to finding the perfect shade of pink is whether or not you are cool-toned or warm-toned.
If you are cool-toned you should look for pinks with blue and purple undertones. So shades like magenta, lavender, blue toned hot pink, purple toned pink, and rosy pink would be perfect shades for you. Here are four great options if you are cool-toned.
ColourPop's lipstick in what if ($8) is a cool-toned fuchsia. According to ColourPop it is a creme lipstick made up of hydrating butters such as “a blend of acai, jojoba and pomegranate seed butters” and is long lasting. The formula is also super pigmented as well so you won’t have to worry about applying more than one layer!
Dior’s Addict Lip Glow in ultra pink ($35) is another great luminous sheer pink. This lip balm is also a hydrating, long lasting lipstick; as well as, a plumper. Oh you thought I was done with describing this lip balm huh? It is also a custom color reviving lip balm. The shade will adjust to your pH level and revive your natural color of lips.
Nars’s lipstick in schiap ($26) is just plain stunning. It is a vivid pink color perfect for cool-toned people. The lipstick is very light and smooth to put on.
ColorTheWorld’s lipstick in independent ($14.80) is the prettiest purple lipstick with pink and blue undertones I have ever seen. The lipstick moisturizes and smooths just like the previous ones mentioned. The different but cool thing about this lipstick or even ColorTheWorld in general is that they donate 10% of profits to charities and organizations. It’s actually really neat! I just added a few colors to my cart and you should too!
If you are warm-toned you should look for pinks with orange and yellow undertones. Shades like peach, coral, orange toned pink, nude pink, and peach pink would be perfect for you.
Kosas’s Weightless Lipstick in undone ($28) is a warm tone pinkish brown color and it’s beautiful! This lipstick is also made up of smooth butter ingredients. This lipstick only has raving reviews and I just can’t wait to get my hands on one.
Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in dragon mami ($7) is a tropical papaya color and it is to die for! The lipstick is also long-lasting and petal-soft. The color and pigment is so pretty you have to get your hands on one. All of their colors are on sale right now so go buy one!
Glossier’s Ultralip in lucite ($18) is one of their most top-rated products. The lipstick itself is amazing, but the colors? Stunning. The packaging itself is part recycled plastic so it’s part eco-friendly. The reviews only have good things to say and people emphasized that their lips felt nourished instantly.
