Hello my lovelies,
So it’s officially spring, I have had to put away my dark plum lipsticks and bring out my pinks and brighter shades for the Spring time. I must say I’m a sucker for spring just because of the colours associated with the season- who doesn’t love pastel colours!? I thought I would share today my favourite lipsticks I love to wear at this time of the year.
KIKO – Velvet Passion in 308 Papaya see here
I love orange shades on the lips, some people find this daring but actually you will be surprised about how many skin tones an orange shade actually compliments. As soon as I see the sun out I always whip out an orange, I love it! This KIKO lipstick is beautiful I love the formula of this range, it is a matte finish which I much prefer. As this is for spring it is not a crazy bright orange, it is fairly red toned so if you are wanting to delve into the world of orange lips this is good place to start – especially for the price.
On a side note – how beautiful is the packaging!? It has a magnetic close and I honestly spend hours opening and closing this. I know small things please a small brain..
MAC – Impassioned Lipstick see here
So if you know me, you know I love MAC lipsticks I have never been disappointed by them and this one is a stand out for me, especially for the spring months. It is a beautiful deep fuchsia shade with blue undertones – always a winner if you want your teeth to look whiter! This is a amplified creme finish which is actually one of my favourites it’s long lasting and is a matte finish without it being drying. It’s super comfortable and I love wearing this is Spring time to bring a pop of colour.
If you want to see how this looks on the lips then head over to my MAC Lipstick Collection to see a bit more about this shade – I hope it helps!
NYX – Liquid Suede in 02 Life’s a Beach see here
I couldn’t write a lipstick blog post without mentioning a) a liquid lipstick or b) NYX. I have to say I love this formula by NYX and the shade range is incredible. First off, the name how cute!? I always think NYX tick the box when it comes to shade names. I think this a lovely shade, especially for day to day wear. I always for some reason imagine this would be the perfect shade to wear when you are on a day out and having a picnic for two reasons. 1. It’s a super cute shade for this time of the year, again matte which is my preference. 2. It’s a very long lasting liquid lipstick that doesn’t seem to budge so perfect for a day when you are in the middle of a field and eating, drinking with no where really to top up your lipstick.
Again this has a blue undertone and is more of a muted pink in comparison to Impassioned by MAC. I also love that NYX are a cruelty free brand, it’s a shame that some of my favourite brands are not. 😦
Overall, I blooming love these shades and I am very excited to wearing these over the next couple of months. What are you favourite go to spring shades, I’d love to know! I am always wanting to try new things especially when it comes to lipstick!
