According to this report in the Wall Street Journal, lipstick is having a major moment. We quite agree, which is why we've had the above Lancôme 'Rouge in Love' video playing on a near-constant basis (we heart the lipstick and the music by Brigitte). We've also been obsessing over these five lipstick shades; we think you'll agree they're insanely pretty for prom. --Angel
Our favorite Lancôme Rouge in Love shade, the 'Rouge in Love Tonight Is My Night' Lipstick in Midnight Rose, is the perfect pink that's more sweet than shocking. We swear this lipstick will look sensational with any gown, no matter what color it is.
And speaking of shocking pink, Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap is one of the most shocking we've seen. It's fun and playful, but also extremely bold, so be ready to turn heads. It's an awesome lipstick choice to complement any color prom dress.
No springtime lipstick roundup would be complete without including some version of orange; after all, Tangerine Tango is Pantone's official color of 2012. The Sephora + Pantone Universe™ Color of the Year Crème Lipstick, a vibrant burst of orange, will look sensational with teal, yellow, or even red prom dresses.
A beige lip color is a must for spring, and though it makes a great option for every day, it can also look really special for a big night like prom (try it with a colorful smokey eye). You can wear Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour LIpstick in Beige for Good with any color dress, but we think it'll be bananas with a flirty LBD.
If you've never worn a purple lipstick it might be fun to try one out for prom. MAC Cosmetics Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Quite the Thing! is a deep plum with hints of blue, making it a great choice if you're wearing any shade of turquoise, navy, or sky.
