Lipstick Lover: Pink Lipstick

While we’re big fans of trying bold and adventurous lip colors, there’s something to be said about understated, everyday hues. And for us, that means pink! From matte to glossy, bright to muted—with the help of our editorial team—we’ve rounded up our favorite pink lipsticks.

1 of 7
  • Our founder and creative director Taylor swears by the bold “Schiap.” The self-professed lipstick junkie favors this shade over any other pink. Schiap by Nars ($24)

  • Caitlin, our editorial director, loves “Pink Sky” by Revlon for everyday wear. “I love the matte finish. It’s just bright enough to make a statement, but also safe enough to wear for meetings.” Pink Sky by Revlon ($7.99)


  • Our intern Kate loves the hydrating formula of Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance in “Whimsy”—and we love the packaging! Whimsy by Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick ($26)

  • Erin from our beauty team compared picking a favorite pink lipstick to picking her favorite child—but ultimately, she landed on M.A.C “Pink Nouveau.” “I love the creamy matte finish and pastel mauve-pink tone—it always takes my look to the next level of chic!” Pink Nouveau by M.A.C. ($15)

  • Our lifestyle contributing editor Carrie loves Clinique Chubby Stick in “Woppin’ Watermelon.” “It’s such a fresh color for the transition to spring, and it’s super rich and moisturizing. I hardly go a day without it!” Woppin’ Watermelon by Clinique ($16)

  • Kara, another writer from our beauty team, wouldn’t have her “best pink pout without Tom Ford lipstick in ‘Flamingo.'” We have to agree; this is the one of the most flattering shades of pink! Flamingo by Tom Ford ($48)

  • Our NYC contributor Kat favors M.A.C. “Snob.” “It’s sort of a mod pink color. I put a nude lipgloss (M.A.C. “C-thru”) on top for some extra shine. The two combined make a gorgeous light pink color!” Snob by M.A.C. ($15)

  • Alice Choi


  • Camille Iman

    Great options, I was searching for a great pink lipstick for spring and summer!
