Lipstick Advice: Pucker Up In Pink This Holiday Season

December 14, 2007 by Bryn

The holidays are swiftly approaching, which means mistletoe will be hung in every nook and cranny. I usually avoid the poisonous berry at all costs, but this year, I’ve decided to turn a new leaf and make my lips oh-so-desirable for smooching. Instead of the same old holiday red, however, I am opting for a fresh pink shade instead. This bright new option is festive, fancy, and colorful, and it offers a fun alternative to those red lips you see year after year. 

My absolute downright favorite shade is Chanel’s Marilyn No. 81 ($25). This coral pink is flattering to just about any skin tone, and is versatile enough to be worn during the day or out at night to all of those fancy holiday parties. (Shopping hint: buy this at Saks and get free shipping through 12/21 with the code HOLIDAY7.)

Other great options are M.A.C.’s Eager ($14) or Bourjois’ Rose Perle 26 ($14). If thinking this pink is too intimidating at first, why not start out with a sheerer lip color, which will give your lips a hint of power pink without making too much of a statement. (Shopping hint: buy M.A.C. at Bloomingdale's and pay only $5 of shipping for all beauty products.)

When applying, start out with a liner like Chanel’s Precision Lip Definer in Sienna ($28), then your apply your lipstick of choice, and finish up with a touch of sheer gloss (Nars Triple X Lip Gloss, $23).
