This Trendy Shade of Pink Is Universally Flattering
Not quite pink, yet not quite a nude, mauve is just the right in-between shade to make lips, eyes, cheeks, and nails pop. But it’s still subtle enough not to distract from whatever you’re pairing it with.
Here, some of our favorite products in our new favorite hue.
1. Nail Polish: TENOVERTEN Nail Polish in Mulberry
This can act as your new go-to nail color when you want something easy. It flatters all skin tones and isn’t too noticeable when it starts to grow out.
To buy: $18, net-a-porter.com.
2. Blush: Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush
This deep rosy powder warms up a dull complexion and won’t overpower the rest of your look. Just be careful if you’re fair skinned—the formula is super pigmented and a little goes a long way.
To buy: $26, sephora.com.
3. Lipstick: Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Moonlight Mauve
This creamy lipstick leaves behind a semi matte finish, but won’t leave lips dry and uncomfortable (thanks to the shea butter formula). The perfect marriage of rose and nude, it blends into lips for a natural hue that still lets lips shine.
To buy: $6, target.com.
4. Lip Stain: Yves Saint Laurent Vernis A Levres Glossy Lip Stain
For a lip color that that will last, try this one. It goes on creamy, then dries to last all day. The finish is somewhat glossy, but not sticky.
To buy: $36, sephora.com.
