The right shade of pink on the lips can be really flattering, and damn sophisticated. And compared to a red lipstick, you can pair a pink lipstick with some eyeliner, blush and mascara, and not worry about looking overdone.

From blush to deep raspberry, here are my eight favourite shades of pink lipsticks. Check them out.

This looks like a dark plum in the tube but comes on as a sheer grape shade that should suit most complexions.

This shade washes me out a bit, but works beautifully to brighten darker skin tones.
