Now that February is here and Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away, kiss those dark and neutral lipstick shades goodbye and opt for an ever-popular (and oh-so appropriate!) pink or red shade! At Glitter Guide, we heart these colors during Valentine’s month and all year-round. Here, our editors share their favorite pink or red lipsticks. In case we missed your top pick, be sure to share with us in the comments!
Taylor, Carrie and Erin love NARS Lipstick in ‘Schiap’ ($27): “Nothing says fabulous quite like a bright, bright shade of pink lipstick! NARS ‘Schiap’ takes me there in 30 seconds flat.” -Carrie
Caitlin loves ILIA Lipstick in ‘Wild Child’ ($26): “This shade of piercing bright red always makes me feel instantly polished and pretty before heading out for a night on the town!”
Abby loves L’ORÉAL Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lipcolour in ‘Blake’s Red’ ($8.99) or Revlon Matte Lipstick in ‘Really Red’ ($7.99): “Both are classic and affordable red lipsticks that look good on everyone.”
Rikki loves Sephora Cream Lip Stain in ‘Marvelous Mauve’ ($14): “Because I’m not really a ‘lipstick girl,’ I prefer a lip color that I know is going to last, that I don’t have to worry about throughout the day and isn’t too bright. This muted pink-purple shade is just that. The staying power is wonderful, and to me, the price point is pretty reasonable compared to some other liquid lipsticks on the market.”
Natalie loves Stowaway Cheek & Lip Rouge in ‘Burnt Rose’ ($15): “I love that it’s buildable and you can make it as faint or as saturated as you’re in the mood for—just swipe lip balm over it for a moisturizing finish and you’re set.”
Arin loves MAC Lipstick in ‘Candy Yum-Yum’ ($17): “I cannot get enough of the MAC Lipstick in ‘Candy Yum-Yum.’ I get so many compliments on it! It’s my daily go-to.”
