  1. Bee

    YSL Volupte Shine in Fuchsia in Rage!

  2. Lekshmi Menon

    Hey Christine… From drugstore my favourite fuschia lipstick is Rimmel Funtime Fuschia and from high end I love MAC Girl about town.. xx

  3. I think Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #36 is beautiful.

  4. Infinitely fuchsia from Maybelline! It stays on my lips for hours and really brightens up every outfit you’re wearing. It is cool toned, which I like. It also screams summer :)

  5. Dominique

    Maybe Guerlain 860 Madame Batifole, very good formula and classy. There are other beautiful fuchsia lipsticks too, like Nars Funny Face and some M.A.C too.

  6. Hands downnnnnnnn

    Lancome midnight rose rouge in love ….
    Another greatttttt shade is

    Estee lauder Fuchsia Fever .:)

    From mac … girl about town

    • KK

      I agree Rashmi! But probably in the other order – Estee Lauder would be my top pick – its true and proper fuschia! Followed by Lancome Midnight Rose. And GAT…I have yet to try!

  7. Not to forget

    Givenchy fuchsia irresistible n mufe no 36 :)

  8. Kathy

    Too Faced la creme in “fushia shock”. Very creamy, hydrating and great color payoff!

  9. Kelsey

    I wasn’t really a fuchsia person until I tried Anarchy by Urban Decay and now I’m in love. It’s super comfortable on the lips and very long wearing without being overly dry.

  10. saf pink

    Girl About Town by Mac!

  11. Maya

    MAC lickable and Bare Mineral Pretty Amazing in Ambition are my favorites.

  12. Brittany

    Mac Lickable in Creamsheen is easily the best fushia lipstick I’ve ever owned! I will forever be buying replacements for this amazing color. It applies beautifully, is so bright and fun, and looks great with my dark hair.

  13. Like a couple people have already said Girl About Town by MAC. I love it! It’s actually one of my all time faves :)

  14. YSL glossy stain, it´s long-wearing and it feels nice on lips… I just don´t like the smell at all

  15. Maybelline’s Vivid Rose, MAC’s Girl About Town, Revlon Colorburst Fuchsia

  16. Rimmel Kate Moss no 20 is also a good one.

  17. Marisa

    Be Legendary Lipstick, Fuchsia Flash Matte

    Bright and fierce :)

  18. Lourdes

    Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro 504 Ecstacy! I just love how opaque and lightweight it is and how comfortable it is to wear.

  19. I am not sure if it counts as fuchsia, but I love Revlon’s lip butter in Sorbet.

  20. I have this one by Maybelline that’s called Maybelline Hydra Extreme in Electric Pink, but all the blogs that mention it online are in Spanish, so I’m guessing it’s either a line that was only released in Latin America or they changed the names for the Latin American release (but no matter how hard I find I can’t find the color in the Maybelline Moisture Renew line, which seems to come in the same packaging and was sold in the US)

    • Monica!

      Oh I have Electric Pink! very nice lipstick indeed, and very cheap! you can get those at the supermarket (the equivalent for the drugstore in Mexico). I think Electric Pink may be a dupe for that Mac one….Candy yum yum.

      • It’s cheap, bright and feels really nice on the lips. My tube is almost empty and I am in the US now… I’m gonna miss it! I got mine at a supermarket in Peru haha.

  21. GUSnail

    I haven’t tried many, but I like my Revlon Fuschia.

  22. Melissa

    The NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu. Seriously gorgeous! Not drying at all. Weightless on the lips and easy to use. I wish I had the money to collect all of these pencils. They’re amazing!

  23. Freckles

    Lush Emotional Brilliance Passionate! I cannot get enough, even though I find that game they do gimmicky I cannot fault the lippies. They go on like a cream and stain,I prefer it to my Glossy Stain!

  24. Esme

    My favorite is the tragically discontinued Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Fuchsia. I bought a backup of it before it disappeared entirely, but I’m still on the lookout for a dupe! MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #36 looks pretty close, from the swatches I’ve seen.

    I also love MAC Candy Yum-Yum, but I’m not sure that counts as “fuchsia,” per se.

  25. Another vote for Madame Batifole. Urban Decay Jilted would be up there as well. Both are intensely saturated and have lovely formulas.

  26. Esther

    NARS Funny Face!

  27. Revlon had one that was just called Fuchsia (I think), but it was in their old packaging. I’m not sure if it’s still available or if it got renamed. And now all of these comments are making me want to pick up MAC Girl About Town! It’s one of the few MAC lipsticks I don’t own.

  28. Alice

    Nars Funny Face was my gateway to fuchsia lipsticks, and still one of my favorites.

  29. Anu

    Mac gulabi (mickey contractor collection) and endless drama from mac prolong lipcreme

  30. pilar


  31. Veronica

    I have quite a few, but my favorite is Revlon’s Wild Orchid. It’s actually fairly similar to Urban Decay’s Jilted, maybe slightly stronger purple tone.

  32. I think that Mac’s Candy Yum Yum is pretty good and I like a few of it’s dupes: Maybelline Fuschia Flash and Barry M’s #52. I’m actually wearing the Maybelline one now and I love it!

  33. Geneva

    OCC Anime Lip Tar

  34. Oana

    Lancome rouge in love midnight rose best ever

  35. Since Guerlain describes it as “fuchsia”, I would have to say Champs Elysses lipstick, though I’ve never really thought of it as fuchsia, but more a rich pink. But it’s the closest thing I have to fuchsia and Guerlain considers it so, so that will have to be my answer.

  36. britt

    Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lipstick in Seduce Me

  37. Monica

    NYX Shocking Pink and MAC Girl About Town!

  38. Aelita

    mufe 36 and nars schiap

  39. Clio

    Drugstore — Revlon Cherries in the Snow
    MAC — Heaux

    I layer these two together, sometimes with a sparkly, hot pink gloss on top… heaven!

    • xamyx

      Interesting… I consider Revlon Cherries in the Snow to be red. Well, that’s how it shows on me. It’s one of my favorite lipstick shades in general, and I absolutely *abhor* fuschia.

      • Esme

        It’s interesting how different Cherries in the Snow looks on everyone! I bought it expecting a pinkish red, but it’s definitely pink on me–not quite as purply as a true fuchsia, but certainly bordering on fuchsia.

  40. keG

    I have yet to meet a fuchsia I didn’t like !!

  41. Guerlain Rouge Automatique Shalimar

  42. Nikki

    MAC Girl About Town

  43. Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural N31!
    It looks really intimidating in the tube due to the neon-ness but it goes on quite naturally and really makes your face pop! I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it (:

  44. Kica

    WnW Cherry Picking

  45. Loren K

    I absolutely LOVE Smashbox Fuchsia Flash Matte. It’s a gorgeous matte shade, flattering on every skin tone.

  46. A. Mar

    NARS Funny Face!

  47. Lakitha Goss

    I love Mac’s Scandelicious kissable lip color and girl about town lipstick.

  48. I love that so many people have mentioned Mac Girl About Town! I love it too… yesterday I wore Maybelline Vivid Rose with Mac Embrace Me liner underneath and got a tonne of compliments. :)

  49. Nirvana

    mac girl about town!!
    nars funny face a close 2nd

  50. Michele Coccaro Benedict

    My fave is Mac Show Orchid :)

  51. Denise S.

    I love Fuchsia lipsticks! Some of my favorites: YSL Rouge Pur #19, MAC Girl about town, Black Radiance 5004, Maybelline Fuchsia Flash, and Nars Schiap.

  52. francesca

    MAC Lickable!

  53. Jennifer

    Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Inspiration. I LOVE Smashbox’s lipstick line. The colors are amazing, they feel great on my lips, and last up until I eat.
    MAC Lickable, Love Goddess and Candy Yum Yum are amazing. The bright colors are beautiful.
    Again I find they do last as long as I don’t eat or drink.

    I also try to wear a lip primer and/or lip liner to minimize bleeding when wearing such bold colors.

  54. Jennifer

    I also forgot to mention Grenadine by Smashbox Be Legendary line. That is my absolute favorite lipstick!

  55. MAC Full Fuchsia! It is the perfect bright pink fuchsia lipstick, not drying, but staining, so the colour stays on for long hours even after I’ve eaten or drank. And it is a very flattering colour both for my complexion and teeth, I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it and it always makes me feel happy and smiling :-)

  56. Jamie

    MAC – Girl About Town

  57. zainab

    Revlon Cherries in the Snow. On me it’s fuchsia, and very bright. The only other one I’ve tried is Illamasqua Atomic which I love the colour of, but it makes my lips seem very ‘textured’ and doesn’t look so hot. Fuchsia is a colour (like bright orange) that I really gravitate towards at makeup counters, but I always talk myself out of buying it because I just don’t wear bright lipstick that much.

  58. Kate

    Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Exaltee gives a pow of color but is still wearable to the office/in polite company.

    But, obviously, MAC’s Girl About Town is the best for the real deal!

  59. Jessi

    MAC Petals & Peacocks has been my favorite for years. ‘Wish that one would come back.

  60. Amalia

    Korres Liquid Lipstick 54, Chanel L’Exuberante , Mac Scandelicious , Revlon Cherries in The Snow, Guerlain Champs-Elysees and Madame Batifole, and two beautiful combos Mac lip pencil Process Magenta with Rouge Allure Laque Phoenix ( still found in some stores in Greece ), or Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss gloss #820 …and i must admit that i have a serious problem.

  61. Lesley

    Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia. There is no comparison! It’s $6 CDN and the color is deep and beautiful and rich. It wears for such a long time too!!

  62. ms

    it’s a shame nobody mentioned rare exotic by mac. mattene. mattene are the best “matte” finish lipsticks ever, they don’t dry me out. everytime i have to take off that lipstick i feel bad about taking it off cos i love it so much.

    mac girl about town, when i bought it, i went a week later and bought a backup. i don’t like it as much now, cos i’ve found more opaque brighter lipsticks.

    a couple by occ lip tars, like anime

    waiting to pick up the stuff by ud new lipsticks anarchy.

  63. Nicole

    Guerlain’s Madame Batifole!

  64. Jeanie

    MUFE #36, definitely.

  65. Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #7. Sephora doesn’t sell it on their website anymore.

  66. danza

    Revlon Raspberry Pie Lipbutter! It pulls VERY fuschia on me, and I love it. Probably the strongest lipstick I wear.

  67. My favorite fuchsia is MUFE #36. It’s such a beautiful, vibrant color and really brightens my complexion! I love it.

  68. Anna Sui V 360
    Bourjois 07 Fuchsia Graffiti

  69. Actnsing

    Urban Decay: Jilted and Anarchy
    MAC: Show Orchid

    I know everyone loves MAC’s Girl About Town, but I actually don’t really like it on me – I feel very 1980’s Wet and Wild, lol!

  70. Lime Crime Lipstick “Centrifuchsia”…it’s very pigmented and ultra creamy!

  71. Christine

    Top 3: Too Faced Fuchsia Shock for creamy not so long lasting colour, Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible for long lasting AMAZING colour, Mac Girl about Town is a little less bright than Givenchy

  72. Kristy

    MAC Girl About Town and NARS Funny Face

  73. Jen

    Fuchsia lipsticks are my favourite! Some of my all-time top picks are MAC Lickable, NARS Schiap, Milani Flirty Fuchsia, and Lush Passionate :)

  74. Kristen

    Buxom Full-Bodied in Exhibitionist. Love the formula, love the color!
