Top 10 Pink Lipsticks!

If you were to look in any one of my multiple lipstick drawers you would see mostly two shades; pink and coral. Sure, there are a few peaches, reds and nudes thrown in for variety but for the most part it’s pink and coral. Now you may think this is redundant and I don’t need 1, 392 shades of pink lipstick but any beauty junkies knows there are a plethora of pinks. At the risk of sounding like Bubba in Forrest Gump: Like I was sayin’… pink creates the prettiest pout. Dey’s uh… porcelain pink, frosty pink, hot pink, cool pink, salmon pink, shrimp pink, delicate pink, nude pink. There’s Princess pink, Barbie pink, bubblegum pink, peony pink, hibiscus pink, rose pink, shocking pink, ballet pink…that’s…that’s about it. (Except not really, there’s more).

These are the pink lipsticks/glosses I reach for everyday.

1396759410_neutrogena-moisture-smooth-color-stick-sweet-watermelonNeutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick ($8.99) – these Neutrogena crayon sticks are surprisingly hydrating and color rich. Sweet Watermelon is a pale pink but a tiny bit of frost. These also have a great fruity scent that is easy to become addicted to!
1396595303_s1530849-main-heroLancome Gloss In Love ($27) – I love adore the Gloss In Love formula: pigment rich, glossy shine and lasts for 5 hours! Under the Spotlight is a gorgeous bright pink with shimmer that has quickly become my favorite gloss for spring and summer.
1396595204_68064-marvelousmoxielipgloss-heartbreaker-0__large_?1396595204bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Heartbreaker ($18) – this lovely peony pink is a fabulous everyday shade with that great minty tingle. Medium coverage and high shine makes this a favorite for me. Read my full review here.
1396595058_14578843_201401072134Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99) – the best drugstore gloss to be introduced in a loooong while. The texture is more like a liquid lipstick: color dense, shiny and cushiony soft. Blush Essence is a great pinky beige and there are 20 more shades! Read my review here.
1396594830_s1531045-main-heroLancôme Rouge In Love ($28.50) – Rosy Rouge is a beautiful rosy pink that flatters all skin tones. The creamy pigment and lasting power of Rouge In Love lipsticks is simply amazing and the shades are fabulous. Definitely one of my favorite lipstick formulas. Read my full review here.
1396594688_s1395276-main-heroYSL Glossy Stain in #15 Rose Vinyl ($34) – pricey yes, but I have yet to find a formula like it. This bright pink will stay put for all day and the stain wears evenly. The texture is über lightweight and melts into lips. Read my full review here.
1396594615_s1593540-main-heroSephora Pantone Universe Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick ($18) – this limited edition lipstick showcases Radiant Orchid, the Pantone color of the year. I normally don’t like matte lipsticks but this vibrant pink orchid really brightens things up and is fun for summer. Review coming soon!
45380_supersaturated_lovechild_alt1Urban Decay Super-Saturated Lip Color ($20) – super high gloss shine and rich color all are in this one little lip pencil. As the name implies, the color is super-saturated and the creamy texture makes this a fav. Review here.
NMC112Q_mgLe Metier de Beaute Lip Creme Lip Gloss ($36) – Pink Berry Creme is one of the most unique pinks I own. It has an almost metallic quality. This is another fav formula for it’s ultra smooth texture. See my full review here.

  1. I love your choice of pinks. I don’t own any of these but I would! I can’t believe how many variations of pink we have.

  2. Love this list! I swipe that Pantone lippie on the back of my hand every time I’m in Sephora. I love it to death but I know I’d absolutely never wear it =(

  3. I haven’t seen that Sephora Radiant Rush shade, but it looks beautiful!

  4. Can’t wait to see/hear your thoughts on the Radiant Orchid!! I’m dying to try the Gloss In Love. Glad to hear you like them! 🙂

    • You have to try the Gloss In Love and now Lancome has a new gloss out–Lip Lover that is even smoother though not as pigmented.

  5. Love Child is great!

  6. Top Ten Tuesday works for me!! Great pics!!

  7. I think I own about half of your list, lol! I didn’t include glosses, but made an exception for YSL because that definitely has the color payoff of a lipstick!

  8. I keep meaning to try those Neutrogena lippies, but I walk into Target and the idea goes strait from my mind!

  9. Oooh. That Lancome Gloss In Love looks awesome. I love me some long wearing gloss! *adds to my shopping list*

  10. I have that Glossy Stain and LOVE it!
