37 Pink Lipsticks & Lipglosses

Over the course of the past three months, we featured 81 different shades of summer-appropriate lipsticks and lipglosses.  I really hope you enjoyed it as much as I have (though perhaps not my lips, ha!).

  • Chanel Phoenix Rouge Allure Laque is a slightly more coral version of Laura Mercier Hydrangea Lipstick.
  • Dolce & Gabbana Pink Lipstick is very similar to Guerlain Giulette Rouge G Lipstick, but it doesn’t quite have the gold sheen nor is it as opaque.
  • Illamasqua Frenzy Intense Lipgloss is a bit brighter than VS Makeup Be Mine Lipstick.
  • Illamasqua Petulant Intense Lipgloss is a lipgloss version of MAC Girl About Town Lipstick.
  • Lancome Fuchsia Clutch Lipstick is a lighter version of MAC Full Fuchsia Lipstick and NARS Funny Face Lipstick, the latter two being very similar to each other. NYX Chloe Lipstick is a darker version of those three as well.
  • MAC Chatterbox Lipstick is just a touch pinker than MAC Speed Dial Lipstick with less golden sheen.
  • Make Up For Ever #203 Lipstick is darker and pinker than Milani Rose Hip Lipstick, but they are similar.
  • NARS Schiap Lipstick is a darker version of Milani Rose Hip Lipstick.

15 Orange Lipsticks & Lipglosses

There were definitely some fierce oranges featured over the past few months!  My personal favorite shades were #1, 3, 8, 9, and 11.

If you’ve been jonesin’ for either MAC Morange or Neon Orange, Milani Mandarina is a decent dupe–just a smidgen lighter.  Illamasqua Temper, though a gloss, is similar in color to Dolce & Gabbana Sheer Shine Lipstick.

6 Purple Lipsticks & Lipglosses

Today marks the end of the Summer Season, which means it’s time for round-ups to see what’s close, what’s similar, and all of that.  There weren’t too many purple lipsticks/glosses that were really rich and pigmented, so with only six featured in during the series, there are definitely no dupes amongst them!

  1. Dolce & Gabbana Violet Lipstick
  2. Illamasqua Fierce Intense Lipgloss
  3. MAC Show Orchid Lipstick
  4. MAC Violetta Lipstick
  5. Milani Magenta Madness Lipstick
  6. Tarina Tarantino Candy Jar Lipstick

Which purple lipstick/lipgloss was your favorite?

Lancome Fuchsia Clutch Lipstick
Lancome Fuchsia Clutch Lipstick

The Summer Season: Lancome Fuchsia Clutch Lipstick

Lancome Fuchsia Clutch Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright pink with fuchsia shimmer.  It’s not pure fuchsia, but it’s still quite bold and intense.  The base color is a deep, rich pink, while the fuchsia shimmer creates a brilliant, duochromed sheen–particularly when the light hits it just right.  I love the amount of color it delivers–it’s a nice, semi-opaque shade.  Lancome’s Color Design shades tend to give me about four hours of wear, and this particular shade will wear a little longer, as it stains just a touch.

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?

Shiseido Pout (RS326) Lipstick

The Summer Season: Shiseido Pout (RS326) Lipstick

Shiseido Pout (RS326) Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a semi-sheer pinky mauve with a high gloss sheen.  The Perfect Rouge formula is incredibly moisturizing, and even though this is part of the sheer line, it’s still quite pigmented.  It has subtle pink micro-shimmer that gives it a little added oomph without making it too shimmery.  It’s also scent- and taste-free — just a pleasant nothingness!  I get between two and three hours of wear with this sheerer shade, but it fades quite naturally and doesn’t leave a ring of color behind.

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?
