Springtime is officially here!! I cannot express how excited I am for warm weather, the blooming flowers, and finally being able to wash my car - priorities y'all. Although spring isn't my #1 favourite season, it is up there. I love that everything starts to thaw and come back to life. But, most importantly, I love the chance to lighten up my makeup. Throughout the winter, I tend to wear darker eyeshadows and lipsticks. But spring is when all the pinks come out to play.
So, today I thought I'd share some of my fav spring lippy shades!
REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIPCOLOUR - "SEDUCTION"
The first lipstick is one of my top shades ever. This was actually the lipstick that I wore to my senior prom a couple years ago and I loved wearing it. It's a very subtle, natural shade and it lasted the entire night, through a meal, drinks, and dancing, with only having to reapply once. For a matte liquid lipstick, it doesn't dry out your lips which makes it easier to reapply as you won't have chapped lips to bother with. As a bonus, it has a lovely fruit punch scent - although, after reading reviews, I've learned that half of the people loved it and half hated it, so that's something to be cautious of!!
RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH BY KATE MOSS - "45"
Do you guys remember when these Kate Moss lippies first came out?? They were sooo popular. And I was hella obsessed haha. One of the ones that I've continued to regularly reach for over time is the shade 45. It's from the Nude collection and it's quite honestly a perfect pink-nude. It's a lovely cream formula, very long-lasting too. I love me a natural pink lip shade and this certainly delivers!
TOPSHOP LIPS - "MINK"
I may have mentioned before (maybe?? who knows) that I love the Topshop lipstick line. It's not something I've come by easily - the first one I bought was in London and the second in NYC - but whenever I get the chance, I take the opportunity to buy a new shade. In NYC, I picked up the shade "Mink". This is a lighter shade compared to the two I just mentioned, but very lovely all the same. The only problem is that this shade doesn't appear to be available online anymore... However, the shade "Coven" appears to be a very close match, so I've linked that below!
L'OREAL INFALLIBLE MEGA GLOSS - "GIRL ON TOP"
This is more of a lip gloss than a lipstick, and though I don't typically like lip glosses, this one isn't particularly sticky so it's all good. I love the baby pink shade of it and that it's quite sheer. I think it's a very girly colour, which would go really well with a flowy skirt or dressing for going out on a lovely spring night (can you tell I'm eager for warm weather?? lol). The only issue is that it's not very long-lasting or transfer-proof, so it requires a lot of reapplications.
L'OREAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE SERUM - "BEAMY PLUM"
Overall, I love the L'Oreal Colour Riche line. I have a couple of shades, but "Beamy Plum" is for sure one of my favourites. It's a very balmy, hydrating formula in a mauve pink. It kinda gives you that bare lip look without having a bare lip - which, idk about you, but I love it. It's really long-lasting and personally, it compliments my skin haha. Although this shade doesn't appear to be available anymore, I would def recommend basically any shade from this range.
Top to bottom: "Seduction", "45", "Mink", "Girl on Top", "Beamy Plum"
Hope your first day of spring was lovely!
