Top 10 of 2012: Lipsticks

There were actually a lot of fantastic lipsticks released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards).

5 Perfectly Pink Lipsticks for Valentine’s Day

First, truth be told, I could not stick to just FIVE measly choices for pink lipsticks that would be fitting for Valentine’s Day. These are just my first five, so there are more to come. This is a good mix of pinks available, but the next one will focus on brighter pinks :)

  1. Laura Mercier Raspberry Sorbet — lovely soft raspberry pink
  2. OCC Femme — pale, light, but opaque yellow-toned pink
  3. Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry — brightened raspberry pink
  4. Giorgio Armani #507 — light-medium pink, not too bright, not too dark
  5. Chanel Charme — semi-sheer pink with subtle cool undertones

What’s your pink pick for Valentine’s Day?

Laura Mercier Raspberry Sorbet Satin Lip Color

Laura Mercier Raspberry Sorbet Satin Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle blue undertones. The finish is supposed to be semi-matte; there’s a healthy sheen to the color once applied, but it’s not glossy and looks creamy from afar. Chanel Belgravia is cooler-toned, lighter. Bobbi Brown Mod Pink is lighter, pinker. Dolce & Gabbana Splendid is brighter, less berry. Lancome Posh Pink is redder, more intense.
