Top 9 Drugstore Pink Lipstick Shades to Have in Your Makeup Bag

by Sapna Sakaria

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the many shades and types of lipsticks at the beauty counter because you are not sure which one would suit you best? It’s your lucky day, beauties because I’ve got you covered in choosing the perfect pink shade that will quickly become a daily staple or the lipstick of choice for a night out.

With our simple tips below, you can easily pick your most flattering and favorite shade of pink in no time! And no need to break the bank because you will find a wide variety of trustworthy brands at the drugstore, carrying trendy colors for all South Asian skin tones.

Below, I provided swatches of pinks ranging from a smooth-cool-toned baby pink to a warm raspberry.

To test if your skin color is more warm or cool, check the color of the veins on your hands. If the veins are green, you have warmer tones in your skin and similarly if they’re blue, you’re considered cool toned. It’s possible to have both green and blue, so, in that case, you’re neutral and both tones flatter you equally!

Of course, this is just a guide to distinguish what colors flatter you best, so don’t be afraid to rock any color with lots of swag and confidence!
