When the megawatt Easy Lover gloss from Nars landed on our desk, it was love at first sight. (And we rarely feel that way.) The Day-Glo pink was sexy and dramatic, but still intimidating since we were under the assumption that a powerful color (sheer or not) like this could only flatter a select few. However, after glossing up various co-workers, we discovered that this tube of shiny heaven gave everyone a pretty pout. Here, proof that a serious hot pink is actually universal and looks good on various shades ranging from porcelain to dark brown.
