Actress Kate Hudson is vibrant and glowing in makeup by celebrity artist Melanie Inglessis (Melanie and I spoke here about this foxy cat-eye makeup she did on Olivia Wilde). That fuchsia lip -- I'm never going to get tired of the shade as a youthful, playful yet glamorous alternative to power-glam red. I love how much lipstick can say in a flash! No surprise then that when the Lipstick League, a prolific crew of stateside beauty bloggers (including our friend G at Nouveau Cheap) invited Beautygeeks to play, we accepted with delight. More after the jump, including Kate Hudson's fuchsia lip details and where you can get it.

But before we get to that, let me tell you about Kate Hudson's gorgeous lip colour (she wore it at at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA last night) and where to get it. Melanie Inglessis used:

Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil in Pomegranate Pink ($23 at and $19 at and topped it with

Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in Red Fuchsia ($38.70 CAN at and $33 US at
