Swoon-Worthy Valentine’s Day Lip Colors
February has arrived! The first half of the month is undoubtedly dedicated to discussions relating to the most polarizing of holidays, Valentine’s Day. Whether you dress exclusively in heart-printed tops or your ideal Valentine’s Day is spent making a heart-shaped meatloaf with the express goal of throwing it out a window once it’s done, festive lipstick brings both crowds together. Here, some of my pink and red lip hues of the season, perfect for whether it’s the spirit of love that moves you to don red and pink or simply the mandate of Hallmark.
Bite Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil imparts the sheerest red-orange sheen and plumps without pain.
Shiseido Laquer Rouge in Drama will stay on from the time you leave the house through dessert, making the only drama the one on your pout.
CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Color in Flame If you simply can’t choose between red and pink, this lip-smoothing formula yields a perfect hybrid.
Make Matte Lipstick In Scarlet If true red is your game, this matte iteration boasts an incredible consistency and longlasting finish.
Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Trashed This mint-infused slightly shimmery gloss is breath-freshening and pout-prettifying.
Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer In Rhubarb Perhaps the pie that gets the least amount of press, Burt’s Bees’ inexpensive iteration interprets the shade as a deep pink with warm undertones that hydrates, as well.
Do you skew more red or pink when it comes to Valentine’s Day?
