Lipstick is probably the makeup product that I hoard the most. I LOVE lipsticks, I feel like it ties any look together, and also makes you look put together when you have no other makeup on at all. Lipstick is a fun way to make a statement, express your daily mood (haha) and just gives a beautiful pop of colour. So naturally, during the hotter seasons, we like to pull out the bright lippies because, well, SUN!
During the hotter seasons, I switch between lightweight, sheer lipsticks and bright, bold colours. I put together a list of my favourite lipsticks for Spring, starting from the sheer lippies to the bold ones 🙂
The Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop is probably my favourite tinted lip balm out there. If you would like to see an in-depth review, I have one up from January. These are super moisturising and they work so well worn alone or under lipstick. They have three colours (that I know of): purple, pink and orange. I love that they are very moisturising, but colour-wise, only the pink one works for me. The pink one is sheer, but very buildable to a full coverage. The formula somehow erases the fine lines on my lips, leaving my lips looking soft and smooth!
The Maybelline Color Whispers are also amazing sheer moisturising lipsticks. I like these better than the Revlon Lip Butters because these are more of a “slippery” feel rather than thick butters. These feel really lightweight on the lips and they feel moisturising as well. There’s also a big variety in terms of colours, ranging from nudes to darks. These are definitely not the most long lasting lipsticks out there, but they are so easy to reapply even without a mirror, so it doesn’t really bother me.
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange was in my last year’s Spring/Summer lipstick favourites too, and I’m still as in love with it as I was last year. This bright orange lippie is my go-to bold lipstick. When I feel like wearing something bold but don’t feel like wearing a red, I put this on and go! It’s great for events, dinners, etc. All the MAC lipsticks I own are very creamy, and they smell yummy. They feel like a normal lipstick – not too dry, but definitely not moisturising.
These Etude House Vivid Pop Sticks are great matte-finish, bold lipsticks. They have quite a few colours and they’re very creamy to apply. The finish of these look very velvety on the lips, but these are definitely a little bit drying – nothing a little lip balm can’t solve though. When I use this, I make sure my lips are nicely exfoliated so the fine lines aren’t there. I love these because of the colour choices, and because these are super long lasting. You can eat, you can drink, but these are not going anywhere!
The Etude House Rosy Tint Lips are also an amazing velvety finish lip cream. I have an in-depth review on these that I just posted two posts ago, and this is my favourite lip product of the moment! They are velvety, creamy, and apply to the lips really evenly. They feel lightweight, and they last for ages! The colour definitely wears off in time, but it leaves a beautiful stain on your lips. These are pretty affordable too!
Those are all my Spring/Summer lipstick choices, and I hope you found a new purchase or two :p I’m looking for a few new purchases too. Let me know in the comments what your top lipsticks for S/S 2015 are!
