I picked this up at the Makeup Forever Boutique on a whim when shopping on Robertson Blvd. a few weekends ago. The MA assured me it was very moisturizing and she wasn’t joking–this ultra light pink glides on smoothly and provides a reflective layer that is long lasting and pale without being too white. Not quite a gloss and definitely not a conventional lipstick, this hybrid can be worn alone or over another lip color (looks divine over Lancome #307!)…it simply depends on your mood.

This post is dedicated to all the pink lipsticks I currently love and carry…
This light nude pink lipstick has a creamy texture that provides great coverage, moisture and a soft sheen that wears evenly and comfortably. A splendid everyday selection.
Similar to its slightly deeper sister, Palm Springs, Miami features a pale baby pink with some shimmer that borderlines on a very flattering frost. Despite its dryer texture, this lipstick is NOT drying and adds an instant swingy 60’s vibe with just one swipe.
At $19, this may be one of the most pocketbook-friendly lipsticks I’ve procured in a quite awhile. One swipe yields a sheer blue-based baby pink coat, and two provides a decent amount of coverage while still being very shiny. This is moisturizing and quite flattering for a pink that could look daunting in the tube.
4) Makeup Forever Liquid Lip Color in #5 Pearly Pink
5) YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Blonde Ingenue (#24) and Illamasqua lipstick in Obey (not quite pink but close enough…)
Above: YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture in Blonde Ingenue #24 is a light nude pink with semi-full coverage and very subtle shimmer that does not translate as frosty. It is sophisticated, demure and becoming.
Above: Illamasqua’s Obey lipstick is an interesting blend of very light pink and coral tones. It offers significant coverage and a matte finish that can be drying if lips are not conditioned prior to application. The color, however, is so unique that it is worth the extra effort.
