I really can't believe we've hit March already! It feels quite good to be saying goodbye to winter and welcoming Spring with lighter evening and warmer days. Theres something that I really love about spring time, it feels good getting outdoors again and it just seems a lot more colourful. I was going though my makeup at the weekend, picking out items that I thought were very appropriate for the season and thought I would share with you all the lipsticks that I'm going to be reaching for the most this Spring. As some of you may know, I love pink lipsticks. However over the winter I abandoned them for wintery reds and nineties nudes, but for me spring is all injecting a bit of brightness into my look and as you will see from the pictures I'm definitely thinking pink.
Boujois Rouge Edition Velvet - Happy Nude Year
When it comes to drugstore lipstick, the Rouge Edition Velvets from Bourjois really are some of my all time favourites. For a start I absolutely love the formula. Soft and velvety on your lips, gorgeous matte finish and super lasting staying power. One shade that I reached for a lot over winter was one of the newest editions to the collection 'Happy Nude Year'. This soft pink toned nude is just perfect for everyday wear and I think would look great any time of year and with any makeup look. For those spring days where I'm wanting to wear something a little more understated I'll be reaching for this.
Makeup Revolution Lip Hug - She's Up All Night
Onto something a little more brighter, Makeup Revoltions Lip Hug Lipstick in 'She's Up All Night' is the perfect lipstick to brighten up my look and give my lips a gorgeous pop of colour. I love these Lip Hug lipsticks, they very much remind me of the Revlon Lip Butters - A beautiful combination of gloss, lim balm combined with the great colour pay out of a lipstick. She's Up All Night is the perfect spring time pink, it's bright, bold but the glossy formula gives a lovely softness to this bold lip. It's a really fun colour to wear and will look great during Easter.
Mac - Lovelorn
Now were talking about one of my all time favourite lipsticks Mac's Lovelorn. I love this lipstick so much that this is now my third one. Lovelorn is one of Mac's Lustre lipsticks, so this pretty pink shade has a lovely gloss look to it. It's so comfortable to wear and looks amazing! Think pretty girl lipstick. What I really love about this lipstick is that it's perfect! It's not too glossy, not too sheer, highly pigmented and really natural looking at the same time. Lovelorn has spring written all over it and it will probably be my most worn lipstick over the next few months.
Another Mac lipstick to make its way into my spring favourites is Mac's Brave - A lipstick that's been on everyones wish lists. Brave is the perfect nude lipstick and is a shade that really does give you that perfect pout. This nude toned lipstick leans more on the pink side and I would describe it as the perfect dusty pink and it really does look stunning on. If you're wanting to make your lips the focal point of your look, then Brave is the lipstick for the job. I think this lipstick is one of those classic nudes and if your still loving the nineties lip as much as I am, then Mac Brave is the one.
Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Lip Geek Ken Will Want Me
Out of all the Makeup Revolution Lipsticks 'Ken Will Want Me' from their Lip Geek range has to be my favourite. I think I wore this non stop last summer when it was released and now Spring it's on its way it's made its way back into my makeup bag. This lipstick is a gorgeous light pink shade that has a slight blue/purple undertone to it. It really is the perfect pretty girl pink and I think would suit most skin tones, it also looks amazing with a tan - Ken Will Want Me has to be one of my all time favourite lipsticks and I'm pleased it's making a comeback this year.
So thats's all of my spring picks, as you can see there is a lot of pink in there, but after a season of brown toned nudes and vampy reds its great to brighten things up a little. I would love to know what lipsticks you'll be reaching for this spring and if any of yours match mine?
Lots of Love
