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.
