The $8 Lipstick Behind Barbara Palvin's Pale Pink Pout

Faith Xue

As much as we love a dramatic smoky eye and vampy red lip, a thin swipe of black liner and barely-there lip colour can be just as striking. Case in point: model Barbara Palvin’s simple, stunning look at amfAR’s 21st Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Sure, Palvin—like most world-famous supermodels—would look amazing completely bare-faced (her #nomakeup selfies are proof), but we couldn’t help but love how this toned-down evening look accentuated her best features

We spoke with Karim Rahman, the makeup artist behind this look, and asked him what product he used to give Palvin’s lips a subtle touch of pink. The product in question? L’Oréal’s Colour Riche Balm ($8) in Pink Satin. At just eight dollars a pop, we’ll be stocking up on this drugstore gem on our next visit to the makeup aisle.
