Nothing compares to the magnetism of pink lipstick. Similar to its red counterparts, the best pink lipsticks are classic makeup bag essentials that instantly transform your glam look with their alluring hues. But unlike members of the scarlet and crimson shade ranges, pinks boast an unmatched versatility that ensures endless color combinations but also an enthralling draw that cannot be replicated.

Available in sultry mattes, satiny crèmes and alluring tints, the best pink lipsticks are designed to suit a variety of skin tones and makeup preferences, offering beauty mavens the opportunity to go bold with vibrant corals and fuchsias or achieve a refined and elegant lip look with nude mauves and rosy peaches. To create comfortable, long-lasting wear, these innovative formulas also contain popular skin care ingredients that blanket the lips in nourishing moisture while extending and amplifying their color payoff.
