5 Bright Pink Lipsticks Right On Trend!


On the lips of every model, actress and trend setter this spring/summer is Hot Pink!  It’s THE beauty craze this season, hot off the catwalk. A bright neon lip combined with black winger liner and an otherwise neutral face is tres chic this season. Darker skin tones can rock bright fuchsia , fairer skin a icy pink and redheads a pinky/coral. Keep skin fresh and dewy to complete the look.

Make sure to prep lips properly by using a neutral base, like a nude lip liner, then blot and apply again. Matte shades really pop using this technique. If you prefer a glossy finish, apply a clear lip balm before your lipstick. If you have fine lines around your lips like me, you’ll want to use a clear lip liner so lipstick stays in place and doesn’t feather.

Here are my top picks for bright pinks from drugstore to high-end:

Le Metier de Beaute Mum’s The Word Lip Creme ($36) This was part of the Ken Downing Haute House Hues Lip Creme Set ($65) from 2012 and I’m still in love with it and using it constantly. I know you can still purchase this shade too.  LMdB Lip Cremes are light, smooth, non-sticky and glide on effortlessly. The best thing about them though, is that they last 4-5 hours! Longer than any other lip gloss I have EVER tried!!

Mums The Word appears quite cool in the tube, but I find it to be very wearable and I look horrible in cool toned lips. Don’t let the brightness in the tube scare you!  It is incredibly pigmented, opaque and adds just the right touch of sophistication. I can picture wearing Mums The Word with a white jeans and a boho top at a backyard barbecue as well as a long flowing summer swimsuit cover on a yacht.


Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in Fuchsia ($24) – this is a liquid lipstick and stain that is bullet proof. Its intensely pigmented with opaque color and extreme shine. The non-sticky texture glides effortlessly on the lips an is very comfortable to wear. Packaged in a double-ended tube, one side is the color and the other a clear gloss for maximum shine. Fuchsia is an intense, bright pink with a matte finish without the clear gloss–you’ll want to use the gloss. The lipstick lasts a seriously long time (Like 5-6 hours) even through eating and drinking.

Burberry Lip Glow in Mallow Pink- Mallow Pink is a very deep coral red/pink–a very unique shade. It has a cream finish with no glitter or sparkles. The name is misleading as were the reviews I read when trying to decide on which colors to purchase. I kept reading this was a bright pink, but on my lips, it is most definitely a reddish coral. It is quite pigmented and has high shine. This is a brighter shade than I normally wear so it takes a little getting used. I did wear Mallow Pink to work recently with a neutral eye and black winger liner, keeping the rest of my face and attire simple. I wore black pants, a white buttoned down shirt and a patterned scarf.  I was told on three occasions I looked– sexy, beautiful and ‘radiant.’  Wow, Mallow Pink is my color! I do think, however it is best suited for dinner date or summer party rather than a work situation.

If these are too pricey for your taste, no worries! There are several inexpensive drugstore options–a great way to try out a trend!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Hip ($5.49) – this is a bright, BOLD, attention-getting pink and is so fun to wear! It’s a mid-weight, creamy formula with vitamins A,C and E to moisturize. There is no frost or shimmer. Budget friendly!

Maybelline Fuchsia Flash ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49) – this is an electric magenta pink with strong blue undertones and a high shine. It has an almost gel-like consistency with opaque coverage.  It is surprisingly long lasting and hydrating. Beware if you are sensitive to fragrance, that there is a sweet fruity scent.

    I’m totally drawn to the Le Metier and the Burberry. Luxe all the way for me, or, as Patrick Henry famously said, “Give me luxury or give me death!” 😉
