One of our favorite enduring trends: bright pink lips. Whether you’re rocking an easy-going, natural vibe or a look with a touch of dramatic flair, this ultra-feminine color is nothing but flattering. We’re always on the hunt for the perfect shade, and, in fact, we teamed up with Jouer to create a bright magenta Birchbox pink lip gloss. Sheer and subtle with one coat, keep applying for additional pigment payoff or layer it over an opaque lipstick for a highly saturated effect. Not sure how to rock a bright pink pucker properly? Take a cue from pros like Blake Lively, Jessica Biel, and Rihanna.
Fun with swatching! One of our members called in to ask which Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss shade was closest to Birchbox Pink so we snapped a picture for her. From left: Mirage, Peony, and Birchbox Pink.

When we announced the debut of our custom fuchsia Jouer gloss, we knew it would create a splash. But we had no idea so many of you would want to snag it for yourselves! Even we were surprised at how quickly the first batch of Birchbox Pink glosses flew off our shelves, and now we’re waiting for the next round to arrive at our warehouse. We know many of you are still biting your lips in anticipation, so sign up for the wait list and we’ll let you know as soon as we have more in stock.
Working at Birchbox means that we get to do fun things like try out the latest new products, star in videos, and best of all: create custom lip gloss colors! We teamed up with Jouer to whip up a hot hot pink (what else would you expect?) to go in the December Birchboxes — so if you’re a subscriber, this is the time to do your happy dance and get excited.
But even though this shade looks crazy pink, it’s actually gorgeously sheer. You can slick on one coat for a pretty wash of color or build it up for more pigment. (Tip: If you want to punch it up, layer it over an opaque pink lipstick.) And to prove that it is a truly wearable hue — for everyone — we asked three staffers of varying skin tones to apply it and then snap a pic.
