The Best Bright Pink Lipsticks


*I received a Lipsense kit for free in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links*

Who doesn't love a bold and bright lip now and then? With spring and summer makeup looks underway, I'm finding myself turning to hot pinks and corals more often than not and I'm loving it! One of the products listed below is a Lipsense color, which I got from the lovely Unstoppable Lips by Jessi! I'll give you my full and honest review on that below!

L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge in Enduring Berry (wearing above) | Who keeps giving these neon pink lipsticks berry related names? There is nothing "berry" about this at all. But anyway, this was the very first "hot pink" lip product I ever bought and I have loved it ever since! It's super creamy, highly pigmented and has a satin finish. It looks amazing with a gloss!


Too Faced Melted Metal in Tu-tu (wearing this above) | This bright metallic coral is really more of a shimmer than a metallic finish. I usually go for more matte or glossy looks, but this has been a fun change in my regular rotation and I am obsessed with how it pairs with a super luminous and highlighted makeup look! If you'd prefer a matte version of this color, try Too Faced Melted Matte in Feelin' Myself.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Pink Possibilities | This guy is relatively new to me, thanks to my sister passing it on to me. Its more of a sheer bright coral shade with a hint of shimmer. I love that it's not an overpowering shade and feels super hydrating. It makes a great addition to my summer beauty collection and is perfect for those light-wear, BB cream + mascara only days in the hottest days of summer!


L'Oreal Colour Riche in Jennifer's Pink (seen above) | Y'all know I have been raving about this pink since I received in a big L'Oreal Makeup Haul a while back and it's still going strong! It's the perfect, non-neon hot pink with a subtle hint of purple tone to it. It looks purple/berry in the tube but is absolutely stunning on. I'm wearing it in the photo above and really love my tried and true L'Oreal Colour Riche formula!



Left, about 2 hours after application, no drinking or eating. Right, about 12 hours after application with regular gloss reapplications. 

Lipsense by Senegence in Kiss for a Cause (paired with Glossy Gloss) | Ok, now for my big Lipsense review. In a nutshell: I give it a 6 out of 10. Do I like it? Yes. Will it be my favorite product in my lipstick collection? No.

Let me just share some pros and cons with you. Pro: It really DOES work! It does NOT budge, even a little; it took me a while to get it off at night! Con: It doesn't budge if you constantly reapply gloss throughout the day. If you don't, it still won't transfer, but it will flake and crumble and look like a hot mess! This could be a nonissue for many, but I do a lot of talking/drinking/eating/baby kissing during the day and have to reapply pretty frequently. For me, I want something I can put on in the morning and not have to think about again until the afternoon, gloss or otherwise. So the constant glossing sort of defeated the purpose for me.

Pro: Lipsense is a great way to create new fun colors by layering multiple shades and the sheer application allows you to apply less or more depending on how pigmented you want the color. Con: Because each layer is so sheer, it takes quite a while to build up to the opaque shade you see in the tube (at least with the shade I tried, which was quite bright), but since it's just the one time application when doing my makeup in the morning, this didn't bother me that much.

So all in all, while it's a little pricey, it's definitely a product worth trying if you don't mind the upkeep and want something that truly doesn't transfer. Head over to Jessi's Instagram page to keep up with her current stock and stay tuned for any sales and discounts! She has a great collection and there's a new shade called Goddess that looks like a super fun color to try!

So tell me, do you rock bright shades in the spring and summer or still stick to your favorite nudes? Which lip color is your all-time fave? Let me know!
