Kelly Osbourne's Pink Pout
The finale of Dancing With the Stars proved to once again disappoint me in the winner (Donny Osmond, really?), and while I spent half of the show wondering why Carrie Ann Inaba had bedazzeled her hand for the show, I spent the other half fawning over Kelly Osbourne's pink lipstick.
I love that Kelly Osbourne finally has a softer look. I am not crazy over her bleach blonde hair color because I think it is way too bright for her fair skin, but all in all I enjoy the makeover from her rock 'n roll hard, edgier days. Another thing I absolutely loved was the shade of pink lipstick she was wearing. I am what you might call a lipstick virgin. After years of sticking to strictly lip gloss I have decided to embrace the world of lipstick. For anyone who has made the lipstick plunge with me, you know this is easier said than done. So many shades! Brown shades make me look older than I aim to look and I'm not ready to turn heads with a bright red shade, so where does one turn?
I think this glossy pink shade Kelly sported is the perfect starter shade for newly found lipstick lovers. It softens any look and isn't too harsh or overbearing on the rest of your face. I spent my Thanksgiving Eve day hunting for a similar match and found a sister shade that closely resembles Kelly's. MAC Baroque Boudoir Lip Glass in Preciousness has more color than the average sheer gloss but won't overpower you with a bubblegum pink hue. I tested some in the store and loved it so much I came home with two tubes.
