Colours of Spring: My Lipstick Picks!

26 Mar 2016

Hello, Friends! One of the things I look the most forward to during spring is all of the pretty colors that the flowers bring when the snow melts. This is especially true for makeup trends as spring is a time to tone down the dark vampy tones and say hello to bright and fresh colors! Not that I don't love my dark reds and purple tones because I spent all fall looking for the perfect lip combination. I just love everything about the fresh and dewy skin with pinks and corals and bronzes! It reminds me so much of all of the pretty flowers and scenery that my part of Nova Scotia gets and I can't wait to get rid of the snow so that we can finally have the nice dry weather. I was so excited to pull these lippies out to share so that I could start wearing them more instead of them being tucked away. Here is what I decided to pull out this spring!

Products Mentioned:
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Hip (14)
Avon Ultra Color Lip Crayon in Pink Premier
Essence Longlasting Lipstick in Natural Beauty and Love Me
L'Oreal Color Riche Balm in Caring Coral
Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie
LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Bombshell
ELF Matte Lipstick in Touch of Pink
Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker in Punch Bowl
My spring makeup tends to learn more to the pink side of things with more muted neutrals to over the bright pinks. I'll start off with the more extreme colors in my "spring collection". I think my favorite shade out of these has got to be the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Hip (14). It's a very blue/pink shade that can come across as borderline too bright but it's so much fun! I got a lot of wear out of this last summer as it looks so good with a little bronzy glow. It's also got this very watermelon-y/vanilla smell that is so yummy. I've heard that a lot of people don't like it so I think it's personal preference. The LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in the shade Bombshell is also one of those bright fun shades that I wouldn't necessarily wear every day but I to love to wear on nights out instead of my signature red lip. It's really sticky so you'll need a lip brush to apply it with. I tried just using my finger and the tube but it ended up with me looking like a hot pink apply instead of  Lastly, Avon's Ultra Color Lip Crayon is really great for adding a pop of color but I find that I have to wear it with lots and lots of balm because it's quite drying. It does make a great little stain when you do that, though! It's again, one of those blue based pink shades but I find it to be very flattering on my fair skin tone.  I have to mention that it has annoying chunks of glitter that can get everywhere so I would steer clear if you aren't a fan of that. 

For more of my everyday looks, I love both Essence Long Lasting Lipstick's in Natural Beauty and Love Me. They last all day and are more of a "my lips but better" shade so I love them for that. I also currently reach a lot for my ELF Matte lipstick in Touch of Pink. I stupidly forgot to swatch it with the rest because it fell off my window sill as I was taking pictures but it's a lovely baby pink shade that is very true to the end of the tube above. Although it's matte, I find it to be very hydrating and it lasts all day! For more of a sheer look, I have both the Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie and L'Oreal's Color Rich Balm in Caring Coral. These have just a hint of color without being sticky or heavy, but are also great for any lip shade for extra moisture. They also have no scent which is a bonus because many lip balms that have tint also come with mint so I've found. I wanted to also include Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker not only because of the naughty name but also because the shade is really gorgeous. It's this really unique pink shade that actually does plump your lips up a little. You sadly won't be getting any Kylie Jenner lips from this but if you're looking for a little more fullness than this is great for you. The flavor is mint chocolate which is also an added bonus. The only downside is like any true lip gloss, it's very sticky. I'm not a huge fan of sticky but this color is too gorgeous not to wear in my opinion.
