We’re on an endless quest for the perfect pink lip color, and have finally found true love in Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in L.A. The medium-rose hue has just enough pigment and subtle gold flecks to enhance your lips’ natural shape and color, making them look pouty and lush. Shea butter makes the formula feel as hydrating as a lip balm, and ginger and peppermint extracts give it a refreshing bit of tingle. It complements any makeup look, requires zero effort, and brings us as close to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s pillowy pout as we’re ever going to get— all we’re really looking for in a lip product!
Tell us: Have you found the perfect pink lip color?
We all have days when we need something that makes us look alive—fast. A dusting of pinky-peach, slightly glimmery TheBalm Hot Mama! Blush/Shadow does the trick for us: In seconds, we have a healthy, just-in-from-the-outdoors flush, and our bags/dark circles are less noticeable. You can even swipe it on lids and lips for a pulled-together look in a flash. What’s your favorite beauty-boosting product?
In the final episode behind-the-scenes of our March “Spring Awakening” feature photo shoot, Mary Kay celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff shows us how to add a pop of pink to your look:
Ready, set, spring!
Something about the chilly fall air gives us a hankering for rosy, flushed cheeks. Our favorite way to fake them (when we’re not working up a natural glow at the gym)? LORAC Blush in Desire, a true pink that looks bold in the pan, but goes on sheer thanks to a touch of glimmer. We’ve been wearing this shade for years, and have never gotten so many compliments on a cheek color. What’s your favorite way to blush?
