Pink is the flirtiest and most feminine color, so it’s no wonder why it’s the hottest lip shade of Summer 2016.
But does the thought of pink lipstick remind you of dated, overly-opaque, Pepto-Bismol-looking colors? Don’t worry – today’s version leans more towards a sheerer version of pink with nude undertones. Think “English rose” with a healthy glow.
Not only will the right pink lip shade offer more definition, it enhances your natural lip color without making you look too done up. In essence, it’s the perfect low-maintenance lipstick.
