My trend crush on neon sparked when I first wore this outfit for a Washingtonian magazine fashion shoot. Then, last weekend I went shopping in Harbor East in Baltimore (seriously, one of my favorite locations in Baltimore) and fell in love with these shoes at J.Crew (25 percent off!). It was then I realized what was next on my hit list: neon pink lipstick.
Sure, I have probably plenty of lipsticks at home, but when a girl craves a new lipstick, she goes to her nearest drugstore and picks up a couple more… just in case. After many swatches and neon pouts later, I rounded up my favorite tried and true favorites.
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color in Pink Pop ($6)—I consider this purchase to be fate (and extremely good timing) because it was the last one left of its shade. I couldn’t be happier with the results—a pretty matte neon hue that wears (and fades) extremely well.
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu ($25)—NARS color pigments are really like no other. While this shade is a bit deeper of a hue, it’s perfect for on-the-go touch-ups.
Stila After Glow Lip Color in Electric Pink ($18)—Stila’s new lip collection for summer falls nothing short of bright and fun (glow in the dark lips? Yes please!). I love the pencil application, making it the perfect nighttime staple I like to stash in my clutch.
Maybelline ColorSensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Shock ($6)—If you prefer gloss over lipstick, you’ll love this drugstore buy (another by Maybelline). I actually layered this on top of my Vivids lipstick when I was craving a more intense shade.
Have a favorite shade of neon pink lipstick? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
