Spring Lipsticks

Thursday, 18 April 2013

Hey Ladies! It seems like spring is finally here after such a long winter! I have a bit of an obsession with lip products and went through a phase of buying loads but as I don't have a MAC counter where I live I haven't been able to get a MAC lipstick! I really want a light pink one and a brighter pink one for going out but not too neon, any suggestions? 

Anyway, I thought I would share some of my favorite lipsticks (and one gloss) for spring, so here they are! Before I start telling you about them, I'm sorry for the state of some of these but they have been well loved and I haven't had time to repurchase them yet! 

Clinique Different Lipstick in 'Sugared Grapefruit' - I got this lipstick ages ago and it still hasn't run out although it has been well loved and now there's only a tiny bit left, so time to get a new one I think! Its a gorgeous coral pink shade and looks perfect with a tan but also suits pale skin like mine. The colour is intense and lasts a long time on your lips which is great, and it has a creamy texture which I always prefer with lipsticks. I love to wear this shade with my MAC 'Springsheen' shimmer blush and neutral gold eye makeup and I think it looks great! 

Revlon Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake' - You've probably all heard about the Revlon lip butters as most bloggers seem to love them and theres a huge hype around the products, so I just had to get one and see for myself! This is a light bubblegum pink colour which is quite sheer so I think its great for wearing in the day and as its quite sheer you don't need a mirror to re-apply it. 

Nivea 'Pearly Shine' lipbalm - So, technically this isn't a lipstick, its a lipbalm but this gives a really nice colour to your lips and I sometimes use it as a sheer alternative to my nude pink lipsticks. It has a nice pearl finish in a light pink colour and moisturizes your lips really well so I think this is great to use instead of a plain lipbalm. Its also really cheap so I can carry it around with me without worring about losing it and it smells lovely and sweet. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 'Pink Blush' - Ive nearly used all of this lipstick too because I love the colour. It works with almost all makeup looks and you can wear it in the day or night. The colour is a bright bubblegum pink and is really buildable so you can wear it more sheer or more intense depending on the look your going for. Also, theyre selling this shade at Fragrance Direct for £1.99 at the moment, Bargain! 

Victorias Secret Minty Lipshine in 'Bubblegum Minty' - This lipgloss has a minty taste and is designed to make your breath fresher without the use of breath mints! It is a clear pinky colour with a very sublte shimmer and can be worn over all lipstick shades so I think its a great one to give you a high shine finish and minty breath. I like the VS lipglosses because they are really shiny without being sticky or tacky which I always find annoying with lipglosses. 


  1. I was looking at the Revlon lip Butters in Boots recently and I really want to get some, they are really lovely by the looks of it. I loved the post!


    1. Theyre really nice, I think I want to try the shade 'Lollipop' next, it looks like a really nice bright pink colour xx
