Is Pink The New Red?

Bright pink lips are starting to give red a run for its money. I’m a red lipstick lover – what’s more classic than a red lip paired with black liquid liner and a silver sheen on the eyes? – and even I’ve been trying on the fuchsia craze.

My current fave is Shu Uemura‘s “PK 369” lipstick from its Pink Collection of glosses and lipsticks in shades that range from ballet slipper to flamingo. Apply this one sparingly though,  it’s super rich. Be sure to wear dark colours and avoid patterns when wearing bold pinks that make your lips the centre of attention.

Another hot pink on my radar is MAC‘s “Show Orchid” lipstick from the Colour Ready collection. The colour reminds me of  Barbie’s hot pink Corvette. Gals, start your engines. Vroom Vroom!
