This Valentine's Day, add some pink to your pucker. There's nothing quite like an instant pick-me-up, courtesy of your favourite lipstick shade. You walk a little taller and smile a little brighter with a simple swipe of your go-to hue, and we've rounded up some of our favourite perfect-for-the-season products and shades to make your lips their most kissable.
This CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in Frosted Cherry Twist is the perfect spring-ready shade of pink. Give your lips a boost of moisture with the ideal in-between colour coverage, for those days when you're just not feeling a super bold shade. $10, available at mass market retailers.
Smooth, all-day coverage is the name of the game with Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Muse. This truly happy pink will quench your lips, softening them while giving you tons of colour. $13, available at drug and mass retailers.
One of Maybelline's latest lip offerings, Color Elixir by Color Senstational, is the antidote to sticky glosses we've come to loathe. The formula goes on silky and fulfills that high-shine brilliance we love from a gloss, without the gooey mess (and it smells good, too!). in Hibiscus Haven, $11, available at drug and mass retailers.
Pixi Beauty, one of the brands that delivers tons of bang for your buck, offers their Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink. A super hydrating, lip-smacking formula that provides just the right amount of colour, so you can moisturize your pout, without sacrificing the pink hue. $8, available exclusively at Target.
This pale pnk hue comes in M.A.C.'s latest colour collection, Fantasy of Flowers. M.A.C. lipsticks are always go-tos, but we suspect we may have to snatch up doubles of this Lustre Lipstick in Rose Lily shade before they're all gone. $18, maccosmetics.com.
Edgy, fierce and awesome are the words that come to mind with this fuchsia matte lip colour from the Marc Jacobs Beauty spring collection. This will no doubt become many a lipstick addict's new high-drama attention-grabbing shade for the days when nothing short of in-your-face will do. Lovemarc Matte Lip Gel in Gossip, $36, available at Sephora.
