For me, winter is reserved for darker and wine colors and recently I was just waiting for the moment to replace them with brighter lip colors. I love bold lips but spring for me is all about gentle and subtle colors, pastel, sheer, peaches and pinks! Check out my top 5 for this spring and their swatches on hand and lips.
Last summer I wrote the post about Top Summer Lipsticks that was really popular (click here to check it out) and since it seems like you love to read that kind of posts, I thought why not to show you the lip colors and lipsticks that I think will be perfect for spring and also very suitable for my new job position in one fashion company :)
MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach
This is the first time I had anything from MeMeMe Cosmetics and I was not really sure that this color will fit me, I was pretty sure it will be too light. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the color kind of adjusts to the color of my lips and creates a nice, light coral shade. I have to say that it is a bit drying so I usually put some lip balm before, but not too much since the color will start sliding on the lips. Besides that, this is a great product, long lasting and very pigmented with very beautiful range of colors!
The price is 11/12€ and it can be ordered on MeMeMe Cosmetics Website.
MAC Lustre in See Sheer
I got See Sheer last summer but I haven’t been using it that much. The past couple of weeks I’m loving it, I feel like I just discovered it in my lipstick collection. This color belongs to Lustre category which means that it is quite sheer and glossy and that’s the thing I love the most about it. Not dry at all, it looks more like a very pigmented lip gloss, giving a nice, subtle coral effect perfect for daily make up. Also, it lasts for quite a long time, as the most of the MACs do.
The price is 15€ and it can be ordered on official MAC webiste.
Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 Hours in color 33
My little sister got me this one for Christmas and I have been saving it for sunnier days! This is such a beautiful color, it’s like a blushed pink with a bit of coral, really special and it’s probably my favorite these days. It is not really matte but also not to glossy, I can definitely say that it feels like velvet. I am in general a huge fan of Bourjois lip products and have been using them literally since middle school but one thing I have to say is that it doesn’t last for 12 hours (maybe if you don’t drink and eat at all, but I’m not in that group :). However, this lipstick has my huge recommendations!
It can be purchased in various drugstores such as DM, Muller, Boots etc. for 10/11€.
Bobbi Brown in 97 Watermelon
I already talked about Bobbi Brown lipsticks in this post and said that this is my perfect summer color but I have been wearing it these days to and wanted to show you how it looks like on the lips. I need to say that this swatch is only one layer and it’s a daylight so it makes it look a bit less pigmented than it really is, it looks much bolder in the real life. I am totally thrilled by the quality and the lasting of this lipstick, totally worth of splurge and it lifts up any make up look.
It is a bit more expensive, cca. 24€ and it can be purchased on Bobbi Brown Website or in Sephora.
Elizabeth Mott Lip Lacquer in Classic Red
First I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks because they usually dry out my lips like crazy. But not this one! This is the best liquid lipstick I ever tried, it dries mat but still gives a nice feeling. It is truly long lasting and doesn’t move for hours, I can definitely confirm that it’s a bit harder to take it off which tells you all. When you are applying it, it’s more like a gloss, but it dries very quickly and then the bright red gets a bit more subtle and pinkish which I personally love. Two layers give a full bright red though so there are options to choose from.
The price is 21€ but at the moment I couldn’t find any available products on Elizabeth Mott Website.
I would like to point out that in the past few years, I am really trying hard to purchase good quality lipsticks and skip cheap drugstore brands since it feels like a better investment and I can definitely see the quality benefits.
Let me know below in the comments which lipsticks are your favorite for this spring!
Thank you for reading & have a lovely day!
