Winter seemed to last forever and I am so happy to see the nice weather returning. Spring always gives me a push to have a clear out and my makeup stash is always in need of a cull. Whilst I was in the process of having a right good sort out I took the opportunity to switch up the products in my everyday makeup drawers and I am sharing with you the lipsticks I want to wear this Spring. Now that I have them all lined up I can see that I haven’t really pushed any boundaries and that pink is for sure featuring quite heavily.
I adore this because it gives the lips a very light wash of colour & is very much a tinted lipbalm so it is perfect option for popping on so you look somewhat put together. It has a nice creamy texture which feels comfortable and hydrating on the lips and the colour is nice and neutral. These are available in 8 shades and would be a nice Spring addition to your makeup bag.
I don’t own too many matte lip products but the Rimmel The Only Matte Lipsticks are incredible. I have popped this pretty nude pink shade into my makeup bag and I have been wearing a lot already, it does feel dry on the lips but in no way uncomfortable. The staying power is damn good and the colour is gorgeous and freshens up any Spring look.
Now I have spoken about the Armani Lip Magnets on many an occasion because they’re simply fantastic. They apply with ease and feel incredibly comfortable on the lips, the weightless formulation which is a combination of water, oils and pigments means that it fuses to your lips giving you that high concentrated colour. The water gradually evaporates allowing the oils to deliver a rich, intense colour that is also 4 times thinner than a liquid lip colour. I like this shade because it is a very pretty nude pink, its so easy to wear and looks fresh on the lips. The Lip Magnets come in a range of 18 shades from wearable reds and pinks to more vampy plums.
Lip crayons are just so effortless to apply and so many brands have released them over the past few years but there is just something about the Clinique Chubby Sticks that I absolutely love. The Chubby Sticks come in 16 tint shades & 8 intense shades they’re all wearable I’ve been using the Super Strawberry shade these past few weeks, it is a sheer rosy pink shade. It has a glossy sheen finish and because it is also a lip treatment and is loaded with mango, shea butters and vitamin E, your lips feel nourished and protected. These are fab to have in your handbag / makeup bag, let me know what shades you wear.
This is one of my all time favourite lipsticks because It it the perfect nude and it works as a daytime lip option if you’re going for minimal makeup or as an evening option to compliment a more intense look. This formula is the Comfort Matte and I would say it has a soft creamy, matte finish and doesn’t dry out my lips at all. Backtalk is a mauvy, nude shade and like I said is a gorgeous everyday colour, if I use a lipliner underneath It wears for hours without going patchy or gathering in my lip creases. If there is one lipstick you buy from the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Collection it has to be this one I guarantee you’ll wear it all the time.

How vibrant and pretty is this pink shade from Essence it screams Spring. I tend to shy away from bright colours but this just brightens up my makeup and does some sort of magic which compliments my skintone perfectly. I have said it so many time but Essence Makeup is one of the beauty industry’s best kept secrets I am starting to see more people talking about them, especially now that their range is sold in Wilko Stores. If you haven’t tried them you really need too they have a fantastic range of affordable but fantastic quality makeup and I can’t say enough good things about them.
