Top 8 Perfect Pink Lip Products

When you find that perfect shade of everyday pink, how can you blame me for wanting to buy the shade in every formula I could find?

Some days I want a matte lip, and other days a glossy sheen, but I want it in that every-occasion-suiting shade of pink! 

And now that I've found my 'my lips but better' colour, I'm going to share it with you, because this shade of pink is so versatile that it will suit pretty much any skin tone! Get excited beauties, because your perfect pink is about to be served! 

The Lip Liner

Every one needs a lip liner that is going to act as a 'nude' base for your lip colour. It's a shade that looks natural enough if you line or fill your lips in for the Kylie Jenner look. This one is super affordable (only a few dollars!) and while it does sit in the fine lines of your lips a little, it is a great base for layering underneath other colours. 

The Lip Stain

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 001 Honey

Ever have those days where your lipstick from the night before has stained your lips and now you have patches of bright red on your pucker? Or maybe your lips are a little dry and have begun to flake a little? Ick, I know. This lip stain will completely cover those patches while giving your pout an overall lovely pink stain that lasts for hours without touch ups. 

The Lip Gloss

L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraodinaire Lip Color in 500 Molto Mauve

Lip gloss can often get a bad rep - many are too sticky, too gloopy, and not pigmented enough. But this lip gloss is enough to redeem the group! With a petal shaped applicator, it's super easy to apply and the formula of the gloss is buttery smooth. It's long-lasting, not sticky and gives the lips a lovely shine that looks very natural and is very low-maintenance. If you want a more affordable option, this shade and formula is also very similar to Maybelline's Color Elixir in Caramel Infused. 

The Creme Lipstick

Sportsgirl Pout About It! Lip Colour in Pretty Please

This was my go-to lipstick all throughout university because it's super smooth on the lips, the colour payoff is great, and it wears off really well so I rarely have to touch it up. Plus, because it's a creme formula, you don't really need a mirror to reapply it because if you're not exactly within the lines, you don't have to worry. And at less than $10, how can you go wrong? 

The Matte Lipstick

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 103

For a lipstick with a little more colour payoff and that looks a bit more 'dressed up' when worn on the lips, this shade from Rimmel London is a great option. Many matte lipsticks are drying and waxy, but this is very soft to apply and the colour is long lasting. It also holds up well while eating and drinking and is a very easy shade to wear, no matter the occasion. 

The Matte Lip Cream

NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul

For something on the lighter, girlier side, this NYX Matte Lip Cream is a super cute shade of pink. It does settle in your lip lines a little, but you can really only see it up close. For the best effect, I would pair this with the Essence Lip Liner from the beginning of this post for a truly opaque pink lip.

The Matte Balm

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 205 Elusive

Find that matte lipsticks take a long time to apply to get that precise shape? A matte balm like this one cuts the time in half because you can literally draw in your lip colour and fill it in. Being a balm, it also doesn't dry out your lips, which is great.

The Lip Lacquer

Rimmel London Apocalips in 101 Celestial

Lip lacquers have incredible pigmentation - they apply like a gloss but have the opacity and colour payoff of a lipstick. So if you can't be bothered with the precision it takes to apply a lipstick, a lip lacquer is going to get you that colour effect with the ease of a gloss-like application. This one from Rimmel London is crazy opaque - almost paint-like! - and is more of a 'night out' natural pink shade.
