How to Choose a Pink Lip Gloss - Buying Guide

Subtle nuances and differences in tone and shade can make shopping for a pink lip gloss difficult and confusing. On top of that, the different finishes that lip glosses can have, like shiny, sparkly, shimmery, or metallic, can make finding the right gloss for you a little overwhelming. 

We created a buying guide to help you navigate the shiny sea of pinks to find the perfect gloss for you. Read on to learn about important points to keep in mind! 

Study Your Skin's Undertones

There is no such thing as an off-limits color, but there are some shades of pink that are more or less likely to complement your complexion or clash with it to flatten or wash you out.

Step One: Understand the Basics

Step One: Understand the Basics

In general, shades that match your undertone will compliment your skin best. Skin color is an important factor to keep in mind when shopping, but the undertone is what can determine if a gloss really works for you or seems to be a bit off. If you’re unsure of your undertone, read on and choose the description that rings true to you.

Many brands include photos of swatches on different skin tones online to help you imagine how a lip gloss shade would look on you, so utilizing those can be helpful. You can even hop on Instagram or other social media to find people that have photos or reviews of the lip gloss to get an even better idea of how a lip gloss would look on you.

Blues, Purples, and Deep Colors Point to Cool Undertones

Blues, Purples, and Deep Colors Point to Cool Undertones

If the veins on the inside of your wrist look blue or purple, then you likely have a cool undertone. People with cool undertones look best in deep colors like blue, emerald green, purple, or vibrant pink and gravitate towards silver jewelry.

If you have a cool undertone, cool pink lip glosses with elements of blue and purple can look great, as well as vibrant pinks.

Warm Colors Match Warm Undertones

Warm Colors Match Warm Undertones

Veins that look greenish indicate a warm undertone. Check your wardrobe to see if there are a lot of reds, oranges, and generally earthy tones, as those with warm undertones tend to look best in these colors. Gold jewelry also tends to look best with warm undertones.

Warm undertones look nice with lip glosses that also have warm undertones, like reddish or orangey pinks

Neutral Undertones Have Aspects of Both Warm and Cool Undertones

Neutral Undertones Have Aspects of Both Warm and Cool Undertones

If you're seeing veins that are both greenish and blueish, you likely have a neutral undertone. Those with neutral undertones are lucky because you can look equally good in both deep blues and earthy tones.

Most lip glosses will look good on neutral undertones, but other factors like hair color, eye color, jewelry, or other makeup can have an effect on how the lip gloss looks on you.  

Consider Your Preferred Method of Application

Most lip glosses come packaged in a tube that you squeeze to get the gloss out, or in tubes with wands that you dip into the gloss, much like mascara. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages that depend on the type of lip gloss and your own preferences.

Squeeze Tubes Offer Easy Application

Squeeze Tubes Offer Easy Application

The squeeze tube is pretty low-fuss for application and can cover more surface area, making it a good choice for lip glosses that are on the sheer side.

However, the squeeze tube is not recommended if you want precision or have small lips because it may be difficult to get the right amount of lip gloss out and into small areas of the lips, like the corners. 

Wands Give More Control

Wands Give More Control

On the other hand, a wand allows for precision. Wands can come in different shapes to cover more surface area or be angled for easier application, although the standard shape is a doe-foot applicator

If you are after a deeply pigmented lip gloss or want precise control over where and how the lip gloss is applied, a wand will serve you well. However, these are a bit harder to sanitize, so be careful of sharing the gloss with other people, as any bacteria will go right into the gloss. 

Think About the Looks You Like to Rock

Think About the Looks You Like to Rock

Thinking about some of your favorite makeup looks can help you narrow in on a pink lip gloss that will be complementary. First, think about how much coverage you want. If you want something to accent your natural lip color, you will want sheer or low coverage. If you want a dramatic or bright look, look for full coverage, thick lip gloss.

Lip glosses are known to make your lips look shiny, but can do so in different ways. Sheer glosses look natural and give a hint of color to your lips. It’s usually a barely noticeable difference, but it can give a special something to your overall look.

Pigmented lip gloss can be similar to lipstick, but it isn’t as heavy or long-lasting.

Think About the Looks You Like to Rock

Shiny lip gloss is true to color, meaning it’s a slick, polished-looking version of the color you choose.

Sparkly or shimmery lip glosses have a glittery finish that can give different tones, like nude or blue, to the lip gloss color to give it some more depth. Think about the look you want when using a glittery lip gloss, as the glitter itself can change the whole mood of the pink lip gloss.

Think About What Else Your Lip Gloss Can Do

Think About What Else Your Lip Gloss Can Do

If you have chronically dry lips, the last thing you want is a lip gloss that will dry them out more. Look for a lip gloss with hydrating ingredients so you don’t have to worry about whether your lips are chapped under your pink lip gloss. Ingredients like vitamin E and other moisturizing oils will keep your lips hydrated.

A plumping lip gloss can help you get fuller, plump lips by incorporating ingredients like cinnamon and peppermint to increase circulation to your lips. Hyaluronic acid promotes moisturization, which can help lips look fuller. 

Pay Attention to Details Like the Flavor

Pay Attention to Details Like the Flavor

Some lip glosses come in different flavors or scents. Although we don’t recommend seeking out a lip gloss solely based on how it tastes or smells, be mindful of what the taste or smell is so you’re not in for a surprise when you put it on. 

It would be unfortunate to finally choose and buy a lip gloss only to find out that you can’t stand the taste of strawberries, for example!

The world of pink lip glosses is big, but we hope we were able to give you some guidance on finding your next favorite pink gloss. Explore the various shade options and explore why certain shades may speak to you. 

While the color of the gloss is important, keeping in mind other important points like the texture and finish in your search will help you find a lip gloss that you'll also enjoy wearing.
