five spring lipsticks
Today's post is going to be focusing on five lipsticks to get you in the mood for spring. For me spring is all about peachy pinks and orangey nudes with a splash of coral thrown in for good measure. In the spring I generally I like things to warm up my skin tone a bit while also being subtle and suitable for daytime. Nothing to bold or out there quite yet!
NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz is possibly one of my all time favourite lip products. The formula is an absolute dream. It's a pinky nude shade which almost feels like a lacquer upon the lips. It's quite thick so it gives full opacity with one swipe while also being super long lasting. Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 113 is a really lovely orangey nude, It might be a bit orange for some people but on me it's a really flattering nude shade. The finish is more satin like than a true matte which makes it easier to wear. I've recently been loving using the Bourjois Rouge Edition in 03 Peche Cosy. The lipstick is a beautiful light peach shade. I think it's really brightening and brings a lot of warmth to the face. The formula is really creamy and glides onto the lips, one coat opaque.
Topshop Lipstick in Coy is quite hard to wear as it's such a true old fashioned matte lipstick. The colour itself is really dreamy though, a light pink with orangey peach tones going through it. I wore this to death last year as it's a really beautiful shade that looks really fresh. The brightest of all the shades I've picked for this feature is Sleek Peaches and Cream Lipstick. On me it pulls very orange and coral. It's a pretty good dupe for MAC Reel Sexy which was a super popular shade that was released a few years ago. It's much glossier than I'd normally go for in a lipstick formula but it's comfortable on the lips and has a nice sheen.
So, over to you… Let me know what you plan wearing on your lips this Spring?
