Spring time is my favorite time of the year to wear lipstick. For me it has to do a lot with the temperature factor, it's not too hot so it doesn't slip right off but it's not too cold so these lipsticks don't look crazy. Here are a few of my favorite lipsticks-mainly pinky-reds and corals!
In order of the swatches in the above picture.
MAC Candy Yum-Yum: This color is so bright that when I wear it I absolutely have to keep the rest of my make-up simple. It's a pretty blue-toned color that stays for hours because of the matte formula and it's not super drying (but it does have some drying effects).
Lush Lemony Flutter: So this isn’t a lipstick but I use it with the above product and any other drying lipstick I have. This is technically a Cuticle Butter but when I bought it the saleswoman told me that she used it on her lips and made them so soft and moisturized. I agree with the saleswoman, it’s great at moisturizing everything from my lips to my elbows. I highly recommend it. And if you’re a smeller (thanks Estee for that word) it smells like Lemon Pez when applied!!
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic (#esteemademebuyit): This color one of the reddest and it’s the drugstore dupe of the other reddest one in the collection of lipsticks, MAC’s Impassioned. This one is a little bit drying since it’s a matte formula but it’s great after I put Lemony Flutter on underneath.
L’oreal Paris Colour Riche in I Pink You’re Cute: This is my favorite light but bold pink color. There is only one drawback about this color and that is its staying power. It doesn’t last forever like my MAC and NARS lipsticks but it does last at least an hour without needing a touch up.
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu: The color of this one is my second favorite out of the whole lot (Candy Yum-Yum is in 1st). It’s such a different color than I normally wear but I love it- it’s such a fun spring color.
Maybelline Color Vivid in Shock Coral: I feel like my picture doesn’t do this justice because it’s next to such similar colors. It’s more coral than Unapologetic and Impassioned, that’s how it looks in the tube and on my lips but I guess my arm just wasn’t up to showing it’s true color today. Anywho, this color is one of my favorites to wear with a sundress or a simple spring/summer outfit.
MAC Impassioned: This color is the original to the dupe I talked about above. I love this one, it’s an amplified formula so it’s super creamy and hydrating. I can’t say enough about this one!!
