7 Pink Lipsticks For Dark Lips


You love pinks but lip pigmentation does’nt permit you to try them out.  Dark lips are a huge problem and there are many reasons for which they are pigmented.  Tanning from sunlight and lack of proper exfoliation. Sunburn or accumulated dead skin can
make lips look a shade darker than our natural skin tone.  In this case applying lipstick to them can be quite tricky.
You should avoid wearing light transparent shades on dark lips because if the consistency of the shades worn on dark lips is transparent or translucent, then they will not be noticeable and the pigmentation will only be more visible.  So choose pinks or peach colours that are more intense or opaque in texture.
So if you want to use pink lipsticks and you have dark lips then below are a few suitable pink colours for you choose from.  They are very pigmented and opaque and have been reviewed on WiseShe too so you can read detailed reviews of those shades that you like.
