Perfectly Pink: 5 New Lipsticks to Beat the Cold-Weather Blues
Though winter isn’t quite done with us yet, there have been glimmers of hope, like those sunshine-y weekend afternoons when it’s been warm enough to lose a layer and retire the duck boots. A thrilling indication that warmer weather is indeed right around the corner. Makeup-wise we’re already getting in the mood with a lipstick shift of sorts, swapping the crimsons and wines of the past months for something lighter, brighter, and, well, pinker. And these five new hues spanning the pink spectrum feel like they can summon the sunshine, visually at least, despite the fact that there’s snow forecasted for the first day of Spring.—Fiorella Valdesolo
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic
A creamy matte, a gorgeous not-sprung-from-nature kind of neon hue, and a puny price tag make this one a beauty no-brainer.
Surratt Lipslique in Bon Bon
A baby pink with the subtlest lilac undertone and negligee-sheer texture, it’s a grown-up version of your favorite frosty hue of yore. Also, Cate “She Can Do No Wrong” Blanchett paired it with her fluttery Givenchy gown at this year’s SAG Awards, and if it’s good enough for Cate…
Bite Beauty Matte Crème LIp Crayon in Satsuma
This is the pink we imagine Schiaparelli had in mind. A shocking blue-tinged hue that, much to our surprise, has a very approachable creamy texture.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Paradiso
A warm, looks-even-better-against-bronzed-skin pink and the luxurious velvety texture that has become Tom Ford’s lipstick MO comes housed in a retro-elegant ivory and gold case that would look perfect being plucked from a purse on the beaches of Biarritz. Paradiso, indeed.
Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Fuchsia
The glossiest of the bunch, this juicy fuchsia makes for a seamless transition from winter’s darker hues. Also, anecdotally, we’re fairly convinced it makes our teeth look whiter.
