A pink lip complements all skin shades and tones. It’s also a fast fix to look more youthful, as dark lipstick makes us look older. My quest for the perfect pink lip borders on obsession. I must own 30 shades of pink lipstick and gloss (after donating a stash to my nieces). And I have personally tried on hundreds more pink lip products at the makeup counter.

Mally French Kiss Lipstick with MAC Pink Treat Liner

My hero product: Mally Beauty lipstick in French Kiss. It is a light-medium pink (no sparkle) with a rosy hue that looks beautiful on many skin shades. It’s fairly sheer on its own, so I like to define the lip with MAC Pink Treat liner. Rarely do I re-purchase a lipstick color, yet I’m on my third tube of French Kiss. I am loving this lipstick!  

MAC Sweetie with Morning Glory Gloss

Runner-up: MAC Sweetie lipstick (medium rosy pink with shimmer) topped with Morning Glory gloss.

In full disclosure I still bee-line it to the lipstick display at the store whenever I spot a new pink color; you never know?!).

Where to find? Mally is sold at Henri Bendels in NYC, QVC, or online; MAC is sold at Nordstrom, some Macy’s, MAC stores, and online.
