In 2016 it was all about the palest of pinks to the deepest of burgundy lips. We even saw some black lipstick on the red carpet (we’re talking about you Rihanna, Lily Collins and Katy Perry!). I took a look to put together my favorites from 2016 and spring 2017. Guess what? We’re still seeing similar tones – but with a bit more peachy touch on the light side and a true wine red on the dark side. Of course my favourite is always somewhere in the middle!
