I’m a girl who loves her nudey-pink lipsticks, so reaching for anything but is definitely out of my comfort zone; Enter spring and suddenly the budding colors of the new season inspire me to go beyond my typical daily makeup looks.
With drawers full of pink lippies, (guide on how to choose your perfect pink shade HERE) it was nice to go beyond my norm and find an assortment of colors that embody everything great about spring. I love that these four shades are drugstore, easily accessible in the U.S. and beautiful day or night colors.
“The Brighter, The Better” Babe – Maybelline The Vivids in ‘Vibrant Mandarin’
(Ideal for warm tones because of its red undertones)
You WILL stop traffic with this opaque lipstick! The beautiful bold blend of red and orange pops on fair skin (think Taylor Swift) and demands attention from anyone who wears it. Because it’s extremely bright, it works best when you let it be the star of the show. I love it most for the red-pink stain it leaves behind after it fades a bit.
Pastel Princess – Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in ‘Pink Pout’
(Ideal for cool tones because of its blue undertone)
At first glance this lipstick seems like a regular powder pink shade but there’s so much more to it.. probably why it’s a cult favorite! It’s blue undertone reminds me of the mod era and I always feel “groovy” when I wear (Did I just write that? Yes. Yes I did). It’s baby pink shade makes me feel like I’m wearing cotton candy on my lips.. and I love it!
“My Lips but Better.. Spring-Edition” – NYX Soft Matte Lip Color in ‘Antwerp’
(Ideal for warm tones because of its mid-tone yellow undertone)
If you’re anything like me you wore nothing but mauve shades and deep tones during the winter months; ‘Antwerp’ is the perfect transition from that. This coral-pink shade is everything you want for spring – vibrancy and freshness!
Pretty in Peach – Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in ‘Smoked Peach’
(Ideal for warm tones because of its peachy-brown undertone)
To all my bronze goddesses out there, I introduce your new best friend! I’ve read mixed reviews about this shade but mostly coming from cool-toned babes which I dare say will not benefit much from this peach color. It has a slight sheen that keeps it from looking flat and the color embodies warmer weather and sunny days; Pair it with a gold highlighter and you’re good to go!
