Best Light and Natural Pink Lip Colors for Every Day

A natural pink lip color is perfect for everyday wear.  Here are my fave picks for subtle, pretty pink lip shades!

Lip glosses

Chanel Glossimer in Rose Sand, $29.50
This gorgeous pink gloss is shiny but not sticky, and has a hint of sparkle.  It’s also great over lipstick.

Sue Devitt Lip Enhancing Gloss in Telina, $22
Sue Devitt has amazing exotic ingredients infused in her products. This shiny pink gloss plumps your lips to fill lines and wrinkles while hydrating your lips.

Josie Maran Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Precious, $20
Josie Maran’s eco-friendly line of glosses contain antioxidants and argan oil.  I love how soft my lips feel when wearing this light pink gloss.


Bobby Brown Lip Color in Pale Mauve 73, $23
This is one of my all-time favorite pinks.  It’s a full coverage lipcolor (goes on opaque) that is a bit mod.  I like to wear it with pink gloss on top.

Revlon ColorBurst Lipbutter in Sugar Frosting, $7.49
This fabulous drugstore find is comparable to the department store brand at a fraction of the price.  It feels amazing on your lips, has no fragrance, and provides a lovely light pink color.

L’oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Pink Satin, $7.99
Another lipstick steal, L’oreal’s more moisturizing version of their best-selling Colour Riche lipstick has a lighter formula with a gorgeous pale pink shade.  It looks beautiful on fair skin!

Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick in Perpetual Peony, $8.99
I love how long-lasting this lipstick is…sometimes I am too busy to re-apply!  The pink shade is universally flattering.

Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tint in Lychee, $24
Bite has developed a formula that contains the super antioxidant reservatrol, also found in red wine. This great-tasting pale pink shade is perfect for medium or olive complexions.

Yves Saint Laurent GLOSS PUR Pure Lip Gloss: Lip-Stick Wearing Convert


I have never really liked how I look in lipstick, but I recently came across 4 new shades of YSL GLOSS PUR Pure Lip Gloss from their Solaris Collection for Summer 2010. Each color is completely different, but I fell in love with all of them. After trying the colors over and over and wasting a whole bin of lip testers I finally decided on Pure Watermelon. The gloss smells heavenly, feels incredibly luxurious, and fills out any lines you may have to give your lips a perfect, shiny-porcelain appearance.

Tip: Don’t be alarmed by the dramatic colors—none of the shades go on as bright as they look. But they are sure to make a kissable statement on any skin tone.—Emilee Malvehy
