February 26, 2008 – Pink Fever, a new malady afflicting makeup junkies worldwide, has beauty enthusiasts worried. Seasonally, the spread of Pink Fever coincides with pink lipstick lust and causes one to obsess over pink, cherry-blossom-esque lip colors like the three below from Lancome’s Color Fever Lipstick ($25 each) collection.
- A strong desire to hunt and gather multiple shades of pink lipsticks or gloss.
- A faraway, dreamy-eyed look which manifests itself while one discusses last year’s pink Barbie Loves MAC collection.
- Obsessive thoughts of lipsticks and lipglosses having the word “pink” in the name.
- Rapid pluse rate while standing in close proximity to pink-themed lipstick displays.
Currently, no cure exists for Pink Fever. The scientific community has been at a loss to explain its cause. Treatment has also been difficult. “If you’re rocking the pink lip on a daily basis,” says Karen of Makeup and Beauty Blog, “know that you are not alone. There are others out there just as obsessed with pink lipstick and gloss as you are. We’ve got to stick together!”
