1. The Nude Pink Lipstick
Also known as the everyday pink, your nude-pink lipstick is soft and subtle, delivering a kiss of colour that pairs perfectly with natural-looking makeup. Try Colour Elixir Lip Cushion for this pink, as its moisturising formula is perfect for subtle colour, while a hint of a sheen keeps your chosen hue looking lustrous and luminous. Look for the shade Spotlight Sheer if you’re fair, Nude Glory to enhance a medium skin tone, and Majestic Berry if you have a dark or deep complexion. Want more of a satin finish? Swatch a new shade of Colour Elixir Lipstick for kissable colour.
2. The Pale Pink Lipstick
Who said lipstick has to be bright to make a statement? Opting for a pale pink lip is just as bold, and it looks surprisingly fresh teamed with bronzer or a stroke of winged eyeliner. Our all-time favourite, ultra-pale pink is Colour Elixir Lipstick in Angel Pink; a frosted, high-pigment hue that looks pretty and punchy on all skin tones. If you’re more of a matte lover, glide on Velvet Mattes Lipstick in Rose, a flatters-everyone hue that looks especially striking with a matching shade of blusher. Try Crème Puff Blush in Lovely Pink.
3. The Lip-Enhancing Pink Lipstick
If ‘fuller-looking lips’ comes top of your makeup agenda, go for a pink lip gloss. Shiny, light-reflective pigments make your pout appear instantly fuller in the softest, subtlest of ways. For a sheer finish, try a sweep of Honey Lacquer in a pinky-nude like Honey Lilac, or up the pigment power by etching Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Pink Petal underneath your glow-to gloss.
4. The Rosy Pink Lipstick
The best wedding makeup creates a ‘you, but even glowier’ effect, which is why a rosy pink lipstick is the top pick for brides-to-be. To get the look, veil lips in a barely-blushing shade, like Colour Elixir Lipstick in Dusky Rose or Brilliant Pink. For a matte finish, Velvet Mattes Lipstick in Blush will create your perfect pout. If you are set to say ‘I do’, make sure you exfoliate lips with the Miracle Prep Lip Scrub first, and use a lip liner to create a longer-lasting base.
5. The Candy Pink Lipstick
Achieve fresh and flawless colour with a candy pink lipstick. This on-trend shade has been seen everywhere, from the catwalk to the red carpet, so make it your go-to for a perfect makeup look. Our picks? Colour Elixir Lipstick in Brilliant Pink for a sweet-as-sugar candyfloss shade, or Lipfinity Liquid Lip Colour in Stay Cheerful if you love liquid lipstick.
6. The Hot Pink Lipstick
Sometimes, you just want to sweep on an unabashedly bright pink lipstick and go. Nothing makes your face look ‘dressed’ faster, whether you’re working a smokey eye or a touch of nude eyeshadow. You don’t want a bold lip to fade, so look to Lipfinity Liquid Lip Colour opting for Just Bewitching if you like a vibrant pink with a shot of coral, or So Delightful for a bold fuchsia. The liquid lip formula glides on like a gloss but sets to a long-lasting lipstick finish, and comes with a shiny topcoat to set your look aglow. Prefer a classic pink lipstick formula? Colour Elixir Lipstick in English Rose also packs a hot pink punch, while a blend of shea, avocado & aloe butters keep lips nourished all day long.
