Swatch of YSL Glossy Stain in 7 Corail Aquatique
1. YSL’s Corail Aquatique – is a beautiful nude peachy-coral colour. This Glossy Stain shade gives an okay pigmentation, it’s not super opaque as it is a lighter colour. I love how glossy it makes my lips look. After the gloss fades in a few hours, you’re left with a beautiful stain. It doesn’t accentuate the fine lines in my lips, and is not drying at all. The only downside to this is the price! I finally splurged $35 on this after lusting over it for more than a year. 

Swatch of MUA Lipstick Shade 7
2. MUA Lipstick in Shade 7 – is a frosty, peachy colour. This goes on the lips really smoothly but it does accentuate the fine lines in my lips a lot. I love this colour if my lips have been exfoliated :p It doesn’t feel drying or anything.

Swatch of Maybelline Color Whisper in Cherry on Top
3. Maybelline Color Whisper in Cherry on Top – is a sheer, almost-hot pink colour. This is a colour that brightens up the face and adds a beautiful pop of colour on the lips. I love the formula of the Maybelline Color Whispers – they go on super smoothly, and the colours and amazing. You do have to touch up several times throughout the day though.

Swatch of NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler
NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler – is an orange-coral lip gloss. I don’t usually wear lip glosses alone but this one I love! The gloss is a little sticky, but not too much. The colour pay-off is amazing, and it makes my lips look soft and glossy. The gloss doesn’t hang on to the fine lines of my lips.

Swatch of Bourjois Color Boost in Red Sunrise
Bourjois Color Boost in Red Sunrise – is a red with pink undertones. I love that it is a jumbo lip pencil and is super easy to apply. The formula is amazing, goes on the lips without tugging and stays on for a couple of hours. This colour is one of those pick-me-uppers when you feel like being a little lazy on the eyes. It’s a very wearable kind of red.

Swatch of MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange – is straight up orange. This is definitely a statement lipstick. I love the formula of this lipstick – it’s creamy and stays on the lips for a really long time. This lipstick goes so well with a winged eyeliner. I love wearing this to parties, events, etc. This might not be the best lipstick for every day wear, but it’s a fun colour to throw on sometimes.

Swatch of Michael Marcus - Debbie
Michael Marcus Lipstick in Debbie – is a true red. Sorry about the sloppy application. The formula of this lipstick is the best I’ve ever tried. It’s so creamy and it lasts for ages! It’s super pigmented so I definitely suggest using a lip brush for this. It also looks very glossy.

Swatch of Etude Hosue Rose Tint Lips - 08 After Blossom
Etude House Rose Tint Lips in 08 After Blossom – is a hot raspberry colour. I only applied one very thin layer on my swatch for an every day look, but it’s a colour that you can build up and make it a statement lip. It has a matte finish but it’s not drying. 
Those are all my lipstick picks for Spring 2014! As you can see, I love bright lipsticks- especially the corals! 
Till next time, girls! Soak up some sun (but don’t forget the sunscreen!).
Thanks for reading, xoxo
