Emma Stone gave us a serious case of make-up envy this weekend, we spied her on the red carpet at the Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon in LA yesterday with a super-pretty pink pout. Her gorgeous look got us thinking, finding the perfect pink lippie can be a total minefield, not only are there a ton of shades but then you have to decide which texture works for you, matte, sheer, creamy, the list goes on… Well you can stop worrying, because we’ve cooked up the ultimate guide to find your perfect pink partner.
