Top lipstick shades for Spring 2013

04 September 2013

Helloooooiiiii (in true Aussie style!)

Spring is in! Spring is in!

It's time to whip out your beautiful, bright lippies again and I've got a few that I'd like to share with you all :) If you're like me, I do try to change up my makeup as the season change and I always get excited for spring because the yummy colours come out and it doesn't help that all the cosmetic brands come up with new shades for the Spring.

I did pick up a few new lip products although they've been on the market for months now. I just thought it was perfect for spring and also it was half-price at Priceline when I bought it and of course i have my old favourites that I'm giving much love once again.

Here are my top picks for Spring :)

I love corals, oranges and pinks and the brighter the better. I normally would just have a basic eye makeup or sometimes just coats of mascara, nicely shaped and drawn brows and subtle cheek colour and a bright lip! bam!

The recent items I bought were from Maybelline's ColourSensational Vivids collection: Vivid Rose and Shocking Coral. Vivid Rose is vibrant, deep pink on the cool side of things while Shocking Coral is well a shocking peachy-coral with pink and yellow undertone, very warm.

These Vivids lipsticks are:

  • Very bright and creamy. 
  • They are very pigmented and can stain your lips all day.
  • It has the yummiest scent to it, like a vanilla bean. 
  • It's hydrating on the lips as well, lots of movement. 
  • You won't have that dry lips feeling at the day progresses. 
  • Very affordable
If I were to choose, I'd go for Shocking coral as I have yellow-undertone complexion but both are equally yummy looking :) I tell you, these drugstore brands are stepping up their game and really releasing better formulation and to be honest much more value for your money than the known high-end ones.

My old favourites are:

MAC Vegas Volt - an amplified creamy coral shade. Very creamy and pigmented.

MAC Girl about Town - this is my all-time favourite deep pink shade, thanks to Rihanna, she rocked this colour in one of her videos many moons ago and I just had to get it.

Revlon Lip butter in Tutti Frutti - a very creamy and hydrating orange shade. I love this as it adds that warmth you wanted to your makeup. It is very spring to me and these lip butters are a dream to apply on the lips.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous - This is another orange shade. If I'm being honest, this almost the exact same shade as the Tutti Frutti only less glossy and less creamy but the stain power is longer. I normally use both if I want a really orange lips.

Here are swatches for you:

1 - MAC Vegas Volt
2 - MAC Girl about town
3 - MNY Shocking Coral
4 - MNY Vivid Rose
5 - Revlon Tutti Frutti
6 - Revlon Rendezvous

Are your lips in spring mode yet?

Until the next post, enjoy the sunshine :)
