My very first lipstick was a bright fuchsia-pink from Maybelline… I can’t remember the name now, but I think it was supposed to have diamond powder in it? (Yeah, right!)
I was 16 at the time, and my best friend Giorgia gave it to me before I left to go to school on the French Riviera for a month. She had the same lipstick, and we used to share it before going out on Saturday night.
Ahhh, good times… 🙂
Since I was a little sad to leave her for a whole month, she gave it to me and said, “Never underestimate the brightening power of bright pink lipstick.”
You know what?
She was totally right!
Not only is bright pink lipstick one of my favorite ways to brighten up my complexion, it also never fails to brighten my mood!
Seriously, try it sometime, and if you need some ideas, here are five of my bright pink lipstick summertime faves.
1. YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in Fuchsia Fetiche ($37)
Just kidding! I think I’d still choose that one, as not only is it a great lipstick, but it also has sentimental value for me, because I got it last time I was in San Francisco, which is a city I’ve been completely in love with since I spent a year at Cal as an exchange student.
But my favorite, favorite lipstick of all time is YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in 208 Fuchsia Fetiche.
I absolutely adore EVERYTHING about this lipstick. I love how luxuriously long-lasting, beautiful and extremely comfortable it is.
Not to mention, I love the shade! It’s the brightest, most gorgeous raspberry fuchsia I’ve ever seen.
Seriously, gurl, if you’ve never tried the YSL Rouges Pur Couture The Mats, I highly, highly recommend checking them out next time you’re at a counter.
2. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry ($32)
