Much like my Springtime nail selection, I tend to get a bit bolder when it comes to my choice of lip colour at this time of year. Gone are the deeper, darker plum tones and deep reds and in their place, I have a selection of peachy pinks and bright fuchsias.
First up is the Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in Afternoon Tea, a perfect everyday pink that adds a subtle wash of colour and a beautiful sheen to the lips. Lovely worn on its own or layered on top of another lipstick, it’s ideal for adding just a bit of colour without too much effort. The same can be said of the Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya, which is one of the most moisturising lip colours I own. The orangey peach tone is amazing for Springtime and, while it isn’t super pigmented, you get a good pop of colour without anything too drastic.
From an old favourite to a relatively new acquisition, the Lancôme Lip Lover in Belle de Rouge, a lovely liquid lipstick that has been a staple in my handbag ever since I discovered it a few weeks ago. Highly pigmented, but also incredibly glossy, it leaves a berry stain on the lips which is just beautiful and far lighter than a lipstick.
The last pick of the pack is by far the most out there, but it’s a look I’m determined to try and work at some point this Spring. The Claire’s Pink Lip Crayon is a bold and bright fuchsia pink that can be built up to be pretty darn pigmented on the lips. While the formula isn’t superb in terms of staying power, it applies really smoothly and accurately – thanks to the easy crayon-style bullet – and it has a pretty good colour payoff. A fun one to play around with I think.
Now pucker up and tell me what lip lacquers you’re loving for Spring…
