Pink Slips: The Hottest Lip Colour on the Oscars 2013 Red Carpet

by Janine on 26 February 2013 · 14 comments

Pink lipstick and gloss at the Oscars 2013This feels like celebrity peer pressure. At this year’s Oscars, pink was the lip colour of the evening. On the red carpet, variations ranged from barely-there sheer to petal pink on Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence, Adele and Anne Hathaway. Nominees Naomi Watts (my vote for the night’s best dressed, no contest) and Amanda Seyfried also wore pretty pink, and presenter Queen Latifah kicked it up with (fabulous) fuchsia.

Photos, and details on the lip where possible:

Jennifer Lawrence_Oscars 2013_makeupJennifer Lawrence: Makeup pro (and wife to actor Patrick Dempsey) Jillian Dempsey used Dior Addict Lipstick in Beige Casual #22, which she described in her blog post for Allure as a “light Dior gloss with very faint pink tint.

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsAdele: Makeup artist Michael Ashton used Giorgio Armani Lip Liner in #12, Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in #500, and Sisley Lip Gloss in White Diamond.

Anne Hathaway_Oscars 2013Anne Hathaway: According to Allure, makeup artist Kate Lee first applied Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color in Évanescente, then patted a bit of concealer on top with her fingertip to mute the colour a little.

Kerry Washington_Oscars 2013Kerry Washington: Makeup pro Carola Gonzales used Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro 202 and Lancôme Rouge in Love in Rose Boudoir.

Naomi Watts_Oscars 2013 makeupNaomi Watts: Makeup artist Pati Dubroff chose Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Mademoiselle for Naomi.

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsAmanda Seyfried: Never mind the lipstick, I’m all brow-envy girl, and a bit mesmerized by that eye shadow.

Jane Fonda_Oscars 2013_makeupJane Fonda: Love the yellow dress! And Beauty Gospel: glossy soft pink is the most youthful lip finish ever.

Reese Witherspoon_Oscars 2013Reese Witherspoon: This is a signature look for the actress; love flushed cheeks and eye makeup too.

Queen Latifah_Oscars 2013Queen Latifah: Love, love this fuchsia on Queen Latifah. It’s CoverGirl Queen Collection Lip Perfection in Powderpuff Pink, which isn’t available in Canada. Facebook fans chose it from three CoverGirl Queen Collection options for the star to wear. I’ma have to search for it on my next trip to NYC (not easy to find either, I’m told).

Are you thinking pink? Or do you wish more celebs had taken a brighter-lip risk?

Pink is classic and pretty, and after all the bright lip colours dominating the last couple of seasons, it feels like a nice change.

Could it be, could it possibly be, MAC Girl About Town on Queen Latifah?


Janine 27 February 2013 at 9:12 am

That was the first colour I checked out — and I’m not certain. It might be influenced by a lip liner underneath, and a gloss on top. I thought it might be NARS, actually, maybe Schiapp. Still trying to find out!

Oooo NARS Schiap…..wishing wishing wishing!


Janine 27 February 2013 at 9:56 am

Me too, really — I can’t believe I don’t already have it. Must pick it up today!

Lisa, turns out CoverGirl Facebook fans (probably in the US) chose the shade for Queen Latifah: CoverGirl Queen Collection Lip Perfection in Powderpuff Pink. Not available in Canada, so the next trip south…


Lisa F. 28 February 2013 at 2:58 pm

Wah. :-( I’m a thinkin’ it be time to visit Buffalo….yes? Yes.

Of course it shan’t hurt to pop out and purchase a NARS Schiap or two, however…..😉


Janine 2 March 2013 at 9:41 am

I like your thinking, Lisa!


Lisa F. 6 March 2013 at 2:56 pm

Hey Janine, popped into the Chou Chou Bloor St. Sephora today and played with Schiap. Guess what? It’s identical to Girl About Town. There. I just saved us $30 each. Plus change. 😉


Janine 6 March 2013 at 3:04 pm

You are AWESOME! Thanks for that tip!!


Lisa F. 6 March 2013 at 3:25 pm

Omg. I just remembered how much I want MAC CANDY Yum-Yum….you? Tell me not to. Please.


Janine 6 March 2013 at 3:34 pm

I have to check that shade out before I can weigh in… stay tuned! *grin*
