Three fresh pink lip colors from a few harder-to-find brands I think everyone should check out:
- Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lipstick in Fresh Pink PK04 - a sheer fresh light pink with a soft frost ($38 can be found at Barneys.com and KohGenDoCosmetics.com)
- Burberry Lip Mist in Fresh Pink No. 09 - a healthy semi-bright cool-pink ($30, can be found at Nordstrom.com)
- Paul & Joe Lip Lacquer in Can-Can 06 - a cool-toned healthy pink with slight shimmer and high sheen ($20 check Paul & Joe for locations)
Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lipsticks have a sheer moisturizing formula. While the color is sheer, it is visible on the lips and gives healthy glowing lips like no other lipstick formula. I've reviewed two others Pink Beige and Pink Rose here. Fresh Pink PK04 was provided to me for review. It's a sheer light pink. Looking at the tube, one might worry that the color would be too sheer. The color does show up on my lips, but just barely. I think those with darker skin or darker lips might find this color too pale.
Burberry Lip Mists are natural lightweight lipsticks with a unique creamy-gelled texture that makes it feel in between a lip balm and natural lipstick. I've reviewed a different Lip Mist, Copper, here. Feather Pink is a fresh neutral-cool pink. It goes on smoothly and doesn't require any tweaking. There is no detectable scent. Lasting power is medium. The texture is smooth and applies evenly.
Paul & Joe's Lip Lacquers are among my favorites for lipglosses. I've raved about the formula in the past, but I don't think I've done very many lip swatches. These are high pigmented high shine glosses that last on the lips a long time. Unfortunately they don't photograph well because of the shine. It looks brighter in real life than it does on the lips below. Can-Can 06 is one of my most-used lip lacquers.
