Power Ranking. A look at the top five Pantone lip colors of the
year, with classic pinks and reds holding their position at the top of
- #1 Fandango Pink, #2 Carmine , #3 Deep Pink, #4 Amaranth #5 Cerise
- Matte-r of Fact. A matte finish continues to dominate as the favorite lipstick finish across the globe making up nearly 50% of all lipstick try-ons. The exception: Japan. Japanese user data shows 50% preferred a sheer lipstick finish, as compared to only 18% choosing matte.
- East Coast VS West Coast. A closer look at lipstick preferences made by users in New York City and Los Angeles revealed that east coast beauties favored pink lip colors while west coast beauties opted for reds. Suspected cause: the flood of pinky-nude lips that debuted on spring fashion runways during New York Fashion Week 2018.
