Perfect pink lipstick. Since going with a more natural makeup look, sometimes a bold red is too much and a nude is too little. This is where a touch of light pink comes in and saves the day.

I’m all about a subtle pink

and nothing that looks like I’ve just smeared frosting on my lips. Four of my most tried and true pink lipsticks bounce all across the board and deliver the perfect touch for minimal or dramatic makeup.

The Brunette Blend-Perfect Pinks

NYX | Butter Lipstick in Pink Bikini
This one wears like a lipstick + has a peachy/orange undertone. If you’re looking for a lipstick that has a nude vibe with some color, this is a good option. Especially for a fair skinned girl like me. With a few coats of the wrong shade, I can quickly lose any evidence of lips.

Revlon | Colorstay Moisture Stain in Cannes Crush
This lip stain has similar color qualities as the NYX Butter. It has a peachy undertone and goes on like a gloss, but stains the lips for longer wear. I always recommend using some type of lip scrub or moisturizer to prep lips for lipsticks, but I highly recommend using one for this particular type of stain. No one likes flakey stained lips.

Maybelline New York | Baby Lips Balm in Pink Shock
This one is PINK, baby! It looks a little overwhelmingly pink (if its possible) in the tube, but I promise you it settles nicely on the lips. Its a balm so its moisturizing and does go on too thick. It adds a nice pop of color to any look without being too in your face.

Sonia Kashuk® | Moisture Luxe Tinted Lip Balm in Hint of Pink
This one is my FAV *clap* OR *clap* ITE *clap*! Apologies for getting a little sassy there, but seriously. I LOVE this tinted lip balm. It even has SPF in it. #YES. Its subtle with a punch.

SO. Tell me. What’s your signature color?
