Pink lipstick shades beloved by celebrities

Dousing your pout in a punchy lipstick is one of the most powerful sartorial statements you can make, and that sentiment applies to more than just your run-of-the-mill red shades. Pink lipstick is like the younger, less-predictable sibling of those classic candy-apple and crimson hues. It should be kept on hand for a hit of friskiness or to quickly enliven a dull neutral.

For ages, fiery reds have been lipstick's crown jewel. And while the Marilyn Monroe look remains a staple in 21st-century beauty, it has recently made room for other — arguably cooler — colors, too. 2020 has so far seen a surge in gothic purples and given rise to the resurgence of '90s browns, but perhaps the most auspicious shade of the season has been pink.

Like red, the pink spectrum ranges from glossy nudes to neon fuchsia, from rich berry tints to mauve and magenta. Every lipstick lover has a favorite, from Priyanka Chopra's deep and romantic rouge to Jennifer Lopez's taffy-like hue.

Ahead, six celebrity-approved pink shades to keep in your arsenal.

Pre-Y2K pastel pink lipstick made a comeback just in time for 2020's watercolor trend. J.Lo's lighter-than-skin iteration is, refreshingly, courtesy of a $13 drugstore gloss. The L'Oréal Paris Timeless Rose shade is a favorite of Zoë Saldana's, too.

For something a little more universal, reach for a berry-rouge à la Chopra. According to Yumi Mori — the makeup artist behind her 2018 bridal look — Marc Jacobs Beauty's Boy Gorgeous shade played an integral role in her wedding-day aesthetic.

There simply is no fiercer lipstick wearer than Tracee Ellis Ross and, by default, her Blackish character, Rainbow Johnson. According to The Cut, her signature on-screen pout is a product of M.A.C.'s Flat Out Fabulous shade plus a once-over with the Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil in Damned.

You simply can't go wrong with a pinky-nude and Kourtney Kardashian's favorite, according to a 2018 post on her namesake blog, is this subtly tinted neutral from Charlotte Tilbury's cult-favorite K.I.S.S.I.N.G. range.

Although pink can be delightfully neutral, the opposite end of the spectrum can be fierce and punchy. This Adriana Lima look is courtesy of makeup artist Patrick Ta and a certain intensely pigmented Maybelline shade.

And finally, the classic: a subtle, Margot Robbie-approved, middle-ground rouge. This Chanel shade promptly sold out at Nordstrom after the actor wore it to the 2018 BAFTAs.
