Sea might seem like a strange name for a shade of pink. However, this color is just about the color of the inside of a seashell. With equal amounts of magenta and yellow, Sea is a very warm, almost peachy shade of pink. However, it also has substantial amounts of green and blue, so it manages to not be overly warm.

This bright medium pink is a great option for projects requiring a shade of pink that’s just a step down from hot pink. As you can see through its CMYK values, Brink has no cyan or black, and its RGB values show that it has far less green and blue than it does red. That helps explain its vivacious warmth. Brink pops against black, and it looks nice beside its complementary color – a very bright seafoam shade.

Hippie is somewhat of an outsider among other shades of pink. It’s too red to be mauve, yet too purple to be raspberry. It looks a little like a watered-down maroon. This muted color looks nice beside blue and green jewel tones, but it would also work well alongside other neutrals in a calm color palette.

Hex #A84860

Light Deep Pink

The name of light deep pink might seem like a contradiction at first. But while this color is lighter than some pinks, it has incredible depth and presence. It’s ideal if you need a light pink that can grab attention without being quite as loud as a neon color. If you’re looking for a fresh contrast, Light Deep Pink creates a memorable pop against navy blue.

Wild Orchid

Shocking Pink

As the name indicates, Shocking Pink is an electric shock to the eyes. Its CMYK values indicate that it’s primarily magenta. But as you can see from its RGB values, Shocking Pink also has a good bit of blue that gives it some depth.

Neon Fuchsia

There are plenty of shades of bright pink that are billed as great alternatives to neon, but sometimes you just need a genuine neon shade of pink. That’s where Neon Fuchsia comes in. On its own, fuchsia is close to neon, but this version packs some extra punch. As indicated by its CMYK values, it has a high degree of both magenta and yellow. Its brightness is slightly tempered by blue, but its high proportion of red ensures plenty of presence.

This is an interesting shade of pink with some clear violet undertones.

Schauss Pink

If you find Schauss Pink to be calming, scientific evidence agrees with you. This color is named after Alexander Schauss, a researcher who extensively investigated the effects of color on emotions. He conducted the research at Seattle’s Naval Correctional Facility. Schauss named the color Baker-Miller Pink after the directors of the facility, but the color has since also been called Schauss Pink. You may also sometimes hear it described as P-618 or Drunk-Tank Pink.

Ruddy Pink

This aptly-named color is roughly the tone of a healthy amount of redness in the face. It’s also close to the color of many shades of powdered blush. Its slightly dusky quality makes it look especially good in patterns with cocoa browns or soft, pale grays.

Pink Pearl

Though you can’t necessarily see a pearlescent luster through a computer screen, Pink Pearl does seem to have a bit of a sheen to it. It’s soft in color and almost lavender, and it’s a relaxing choice of color to have around. Incorporating Pink Pearl throw pillows or rugs can add a sense of homey calm to any living room.

Lavender Rose

Lavender Rose is a shade of pink that really lives up to its name. Its color really is right between that of lavender and of a pale pink rose. It’s close to the color of a lilac bloom. If you like a somewhat bright wall color, this one is a good choice. If you’re creating a color palette, Lavender Rose works beautifully with its seafoam green complementary color.

You don’t necessarily see pink shampoo all too often anymore, but this pale, pearly shade does accurately capture the color of pink shampoo. As you can see from the CMYK values, it’s primarily magenta, but the color is low in saturation. Shampoo is a great shade of pale pink to use as a wall color or as a background.

RGB 255, 207, 241

Spanish Pink

This soft pink color is sometimes described as being a generic shade of pink. Its youthful, floral quality makes it a great choice for use in lipsticks, and it’s sometimes used in high-end lip color. Spanish Pink is made up of a high proportion of red, but its equal proportions of blue and green make it pleasingly balanced.

Valentine Pink

Valentine’s Day is sometimes associated with very bright pink shades. But if you’d prefer to celebrate with something a little calmer, you might find this shade to be a good choice. As you can see in its RGB values, Valentine Pink also has a high proportion of blue, and its cool undertones give it a pleasant and balanced quality. This color is close to the color of candy hearts, making its name all that more appropriate.

RGB 230, 166, 190

Silvery Pink

This pretty color is ideal if you’re looking for something that’s in between gray and pink. Silvery Pink has a higher proportion of black than many shades listed here (as you can see in its CMYK values), and that helps give it its shadowy quality. It also has relatively high amounts of green and blue, making it one of the cooler-leaning shades of pink.

This soft, peachy color is a bit more subdued than the color of a watermelon. Melon is right between the shades of salmon and peach, and it’s cheerful yet mellow. You can see that quality reflected in the CMYK values. Melon has slightly more yellow than it does magenta, but it has a little bit of black. This pink shade pairs well with light blue and light green, as well as some shades of light purple.

This classy shade of pink lies somewhere between mauve and coral. It’s energetic without being too bright, and it’s a bit more red than many other pink shades. You can see this in its RGB values. There’s over twice the proportion of red than there is of blue or green. And as its CMYK values show, its large amounts of both magenta and yellow help create its warmth.

Sweet Pink

This rosy shade of pink certainly lives up to its name. Sweet Pink has a blush-like character thanks to its large amounts of magenta and yellow.

Knockout Pink

Knockout Pink is easily one of the most striking pink shades on the list. It’s very similar to the color of a bright pink highlighter, but it has a bit more depth. Knockout Pink is a great choice for advertisem*nts or for other projects that require a high-energy, attention-grabbing color scheme. As you can see from its CMYK values, part of Knockout Pink’s high-energy nature comes from its high proportion of magenta and yellow.

Grapefruit Pink

Grapefruit is one of the most easily recognized pink fruits, and this shade of Grapefruit Pink does it justice. It’s roughly the color of ruby red grapefruit juice.

Lip Pink

This unusual, brownish pink is designed to approximate the color of most people’s lips. Though it’s still technically a shade of pink, Lip Pink approaches being a neutral, and it’s good for adding just a hint of warmth to otherwise completely neutral color palettes.

Passion Pink

Nude Pink

Of all shades on the list, Nude Pink must be the closest to being a true neutral. It has a relatively high proportion of black compared to most pink shades, and it also has a relatively small proportion of magenta.

Rosy Pink

Rosy Pink is a lovely shade that’s somewhere between a rose pink and a hot pink. It’s great for use as a text color against a dark background, but it’s also a welcome addition to a bright, swirling color palette. A decent amount of blue stops its brightness from being overpowering, but it still offers plenty of energy.

Gold Pink

Gold Pink is another pink shade on the list that’s very close to being a neutral. As you can see from its CMYK values, it has almost the same amount of black as it does magenta. That helps explain its grayish color. Gold Pink is similar in color to rose gold, and it makes a dignified website backdrop or background for stationery.

Misty Rose

Misty Rose is a gentle pastel pink with just a hint of peach. If you’re looking for a wall color with a little more warmth than eggshell or other forms of off-white, Misty Rose is a great option. It looks beautiful alongside very pale pastel blues and greens. As you can see in the CMYK value, it has slightly more yellow than magenta, which explains its peachy glow.

This playfully-named shade is essentially a more pinkish version of mauve. As you can see from the RGB values, Mauvelous has a good amount of blue. That helps give it its cool undertones. Mauvelous looks especially good with pale shades of blue.

Hex #EF98AA
RGB 239, 152, 170
CMYK 0, 36, 29, 6

Light Blush

This light pink is about the color of most light-colored powdered blushes you can find at almost any store. It’s also a classic example of what most people would picture when they imagine light pink. With a good proportion of magenta, a decent amount of yellow, and very little black, it’s a well-balanced pink that’s a little on the bright side.

Copper Rose

Copper Rose is a somewhat unusual shade of pink. It might best be described as being rose gold with a little brown mixed in. And as the name suggests, it’s also roughly the color of a rose mixed with the color of copper. This reddish-metallic hue has a quiet look about it, and its complementary color is a somewhat dusty shade of blue. As you can see, much of its subdued nature comes from the large amount of black present.

Raspberry Glace

This color’s appetizing name seems accurate. It does look a lot like a sugar-preserved raspberry. It does have a fairly purplish look that’s explained by its high proportion of blue in relation to red. If you like quieter, dusty pinks but want something that’s more mulberry-like in appearance, Raspberry Glace is worth considering.

Debian Red

Many different colors are named after company logos they are used on. Debian Red is the logo color of the Linux operating system Debian, a free software system collaboratively developed by volunteers. While it has “red” in the name, Debian Red is essentially a very vivid magenta. It’s a high-energy, summery shade that really pops against lemon yellow.

Ruber is a lovely, raspberry-like pink that looks great with turquoise. As you can see by looking at its RGB values, it has a large amount of red but a medium amount of blue.

Vanilla Ice

Vanilla Ice is a sweet petal pink that can add a springlike magic to any color palette. It goes well with pastel yellows and soft spring greens. This color has a somewhat bright quality, but the amount of blue seen in its RGB value helps add just enough coolness.

Light Hot Pink

As the name suggests, Light Hot Pink is essentially a diluted, pastel version of hot pink. This color is probably what most people would picture when imagining a pale pink. There’s enough green and blue present to create just a hint of a cool undertone, but Light Hot Pink isn’t purple in the slightest.

Super Pink

This cheerful yet cool pink shade is reminiscent of electric purple, but it has more magenta present. It’s a bit like a darker lilac bloom, and it can add a springlike touch to any project. Super Pink is a departure from the shades of pink you often see, so it’s a great choice for a project that needs to stand out.

China Rose

China Rose is a stately, slightly purple shade that has a slightly dusky quality. This is one of the shades of pink that pairs nicely with gold, but it also looks nice dressed down alongside navy or other more demure shades of blue. As you can see in the CMYK values, China Rose’s large proportion of black gives it a more muted presence.

Deep Pruce

Pruce is a great color if you like earth-toned pinks, and Deep Pruce is effectively a darker, more present version. This is one of the pink shades that is close to being a neutral, but not quite. If you’re looking for a gentle and dignified color, Deep Pruce is worth considering.
