Four Spring Lipsticks

Four Spring lipsticks

| Four Spring Lipsticks! |

A new season to me is a fresh start and in the Spring, I like to do declutters, replace my Winter clothes for Spring pieces in my wardrobe as well as having a makeup reshuffle. Recently, I've been thinking about my Spring lipstick menu and taking out the lipsticks that I haven't worn in awhile out of hibernation. I've gathered four picks ranging from a pale baby pink hue to a vivid orangey-red shade.

I'm not the biggest matte lipstick lover with the exception of bright shades and one of my favourite bright matte shades for Spring is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Iberico. The bright orangey-red hue is a versatile shade that can be worn during the festive season as well as in the Spring/Summer months. What I love about the velvet matte lip pencils is that the formula isn't as drying as other mattes, the size of the lip pencil allows for precision application and this shade lasts for a good few hours and doesn't bleed.

Another Nars favourite is their Satin Lip Pencil in Torres Del Paine which looks like a deep rosy pink shade but on my lips, it translates as a quintessential Spring peachy coral hue. I'm loving glossy, satin and nourishing lipstick formulas more than mattes at the moment and the formula of this lip pencil is perfect! A creamy formula with a satin finish so it's not too glossy and a little bit more long-lasting than some of my other glossy, creamy lipstick formulas. 

A recent addition to my lipstick collection is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour in Angel. I was so grateful to receive this as a Christmas present and I've been wearing it a lot since I got it - I can't stop reaching for it! I'd describe Angel as a rosy pink shade with some peachy tones. I love the nourishing balmy formula of these, it's unlike anything else in my collection and I'm thinking of adding another shade to my collection.

And last but not least is an oldie but a goodie: Mac Creme Cup. I've had this cult classic shade in my collection for years and it has certainly stood the test of time as it's still one of my favourites to this day. The shade is a pale baby pink and it pairs beautifully with darker lip liners to give the appearance of slightly plumper lips. The creme sheen formula is my favourite Mac lipstick formula as they're so moisturising and they have a slightly glossy, juicy finish.

What are your favourite Spring lipsticks?

Love,
