Young Girl Showing How To Get Pink Lips With Toothpaste And Sugar

Pinks lips trend is on the rise since probably the beginning of our century, and honestly, are we surprised? Pink lips look wonderful on every skin tone, but that’s not all!

  • Pink lips look plumper;
  • They look very youthful;
  • Pink lips look romantic and attractive;
  • They look healthy and neat;
  • They are kissable (no one needs to eat your lipstick…)
  • Pink lips look great in pictures.

Now, you know you can get pink lips by applying a little bit of lipstick or lipgloss. However, if you’re going for a perfectly natural and sensual look, no lipstick can look as attractive as naturally pink lips with a little bit of cherry-taste chapstick (I mean, just ask Katy Perry about this).

In this article, I want to show you how to get pink lips with toothpaste and sugar so you can rock your pretty pink pout in less than a few minutes!


How To Get Pink Lips With Toothpaste and Sugar


So this is a really neat, quick DIY trick to achieve beautiful pink lips. I’m doing it regularly when I’m ready to go out or before going on a date with my partner – and I’m constantly getting compliments. Here’s how you do it!


What You Need


  • A toothbrush with soft or medium bristles;
  • Half a spoon of Colgate toothpaste (and I’m pretty sure it has to be Colgate in particular because every tutorial I’ve seen on this involved Colgate + I can confirm that using Colgate gives that cute pink result).
  • A teaspoon of white sugar.
  • A few drops of honey (optional)




1. Combine toothpaste and sugar (and honey, if you have it) in a bowl.

2. Apply this paste on your lips and start gently scrubbing your lips with a toothbrush, making sure all of your lips are covered in this minty concoction. Use gentle, circular motions and scrub all of your lip surface.

3. Keep scrubbing for about 2 minutes.

4. Once you’re done, gently wash off the mixture with lukewarm water.

5. Apply a generous amount of clear chapstick or regular Vaseline.




Yes, that’s all! This is how to get pink lips with toothpaste and sugar. By now, your lips should have a beautiful pink tint. It may not last for very long (a few hours at most), but it’s a great and safe method to enhance your natural lip color and scrub the dead skin cells away. Not to mention how soft and kissable your lips become! It’s also wonderful for selfies and photoshoots.

I hope you will try this and if you enjoy reading these tips, scroll down for more!
