Find Your Best Pink Lip Color

Take this quiz to discover the ideal pink gloss or lip makeup for you -- mwah

It's official: Pink is back, and some argue it's the new red! Makeup artists John Fussell and Jane McKay both agree that pink is a youthful, healthy color that can look great on everyone. "Color has no age discrimination," Fussell says. But like red, pink takes on many intensities and undertones, so before you shell out more dough for this trend, take the quiz to find out which shades were made for you.

Your ideal pink: peachy pink

Your skin tone is ideal for a variety of pinks, from warm peach pink to cool bluish pink, but peachy pink is most reliable. Makeup artist Jane McKay says light peach pink looks great on fair, pink skin, so try a sheer formula like NYC New York Color Lippin' Large Lip Plumper in Peach Parfait, $3.99. For a richer, more pigmented choice try Bourjois Lovely Rouge in Peche Accro, $14.


Tip: "Fear of pink is usually related to pinks that have a blue undertone, which really screams, 'color,'" says makeup artist John Fussell. If you dare to venture toward blue-based pink, ease into it with a sheer gloss like Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Pout, $18, or if you choose to dive in try target="new">Sephora Lip Attitude in Vivid Fuchsia, $12. (A word of caution: Bluish pinks can make teeth look more yellow, so keep those pearly whites white!)
