Can anybody tell I'm all about the pinks?
For me, Spring makeup just oozes pretty lip shades and glowing skin. I get so excited and inspired by all the beautiful blooms blossoming in April and May that I always seem to pick up a ton of new lippies to try out. This season, I am loving the pinky coral shades, so nice for this tome of year. There are a couple of new products in here as well which I can't wait to share with you. If there are any lipstick you are obsessing over right now, please let me know down below, I would love to check them out!
| NARS VELVET LIP GLIDE IN PLAYPEN |
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not really a huge fan of the matte liquid lipstick trend. I get why they are popular, but I'm more about that fuss free lip life. These new NARS lip glides are not matte, they aren't drying, but the pigment is still there. I picked up the shade Playpen, a nice pinky-coral shade which is so easy to wear. They don't have the longest wear time in the world, but to be honest, it takes 10 seconds to reapply so I'm not too bothered. The finished is a semi-matte, I find it doesn't dry down completely so you lips are left with a gorgeous creamy finish.
| HOURGLASS GIRL LIP STYLO IN CREATOR |
I have been seeing endless swatches of these all over the interet and I had to get one for myself to try out. I managed to steer clear of the beigey nudes - which were beautiful - and go for this more pink shade. It reminds me of the mauve tones I love to wear in the Autumn, but with a more pinky hue, so I adore it for Spring. It's a really moisturising formula with a slightly glossy finish.
| CHARLOTTE TILBURY HOT LIPS IN MIRANDA MAY |
I talk about this one all the time, but for good reason. Whenever I want a pop of pink, this is my go-to. It's a lovely muted fuchsia shade with the perfect amount of coral in there. This lipstick was inspired by Miranda Kerr, whom I adore and I think is stunning, so it's no suprise I opted for this. The formula is really long-lasting and gives the lips a velvet finish, so not matte or drying. You can't go wrong with a CT lipstick!
| NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN MOROCCO |
This Spring and Summer I wanted to go outside my comfort zone and pick a super bright shade which would look fab with a tan a nice white ensemble. I'm heading to Barcelona tonight - eeeek! - and this is going to be great in the evenings! Now, I know I said I'm not a fan of matte liquid lips, but this is really comfortable and I think the colour is stunning so I don't mind the hassle for a few hours in the evening. It's a beautiful, almost neon, orange shade. Definitely a statement lip if ever I saw one.
| CLARINS INSTANT LIGHT LIP BALM PERFECTER IN 01 ROSE |
This is most subtle shade of the bunch but I still wanted to include it as it remains a favourite. There are some days where all I really want is a nourishing balm which will give my lips a tint of pigment. The shade is a very pretty pale pink, it's almost just a clear balm but with a hint of something extra. I can't tell you how nice these smell and how amazing they feel on the lips. Such a staple to have in your handbag!!
