A Pink Gloss for All? Oh Yes

From porcelain white to sun-kissed tan to a darker brown, the pink gloss works for almost any tone.

When the megawatt Easy Lover gloss from Nars landed on our desk, it was love at first sight. (And we rarely feel that way.) The Day-Glo pink was sexy and dramatic, but still intimidating since we were under the assumption that a powerful color (sheer or not) like this could only flatter a select few. However, after glossing up various co-workers, we discovered that this tube of shiny heaven gave everyone a pretty pout. Here, proof that a serious hot pink is actually universal and looks good on various shades ranging from porcelain to dark brown.
