As spring inches closer and closer, I find myself wanting to write lots of seasonal posts. I have always loved the changing of the seasons, specifically when it means that the weather is getting warmer. I cannot express how ready I am for some sunshine. While this winter hasn’t been bad in terms of snow, it has seemed to drag.
Besides hotter temperatures, one of my favorite things about spring is lipstick. As I have said before, I am a sucker for bold lips. In my opinion, bright colors are the best way to make a statement. Plus, it is much easier to apply a swipe of lipstick than to create a dramatic eye look.
It should come to no surprise that my go-to spring lipsticks are all the same color: pink. Pink is obviously one of the season’s most popular colors. And since there are so many different shades, it the perfect transition from winter to spring. These three pink lipsticks are ones that I swear by:
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick “Fig” – I touched upon this product in my spring color post, but I could not write a must-have spring lipstick list without including it. I picked this beauty up on a whim last summer and cannot believe how happy I am to have made that decision. This lipstick has a rich and silky formula that manages to maintain its moisture (ooh alliteration) without drying out. It’s a gorgeous shade of hot pink that looks fantastic in the springtime. I enjoy pairing it with floral, or other eye-catching patterns. (Plus, it’s only $4 a tube!)
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick “Pink Blush” – This next lipstick is something that has been in my collection for years. Rimmel London is one of my absolute favorite drugstore brands because the prices are so reasonable. I can usually count on Rimmel to have the product that I need for significantly less than most other drugstore brands. This lipstick in the shade “Blush Pink” is a beautiful yet subtle bubble gum pink. The formula is semi-sheer, so I often apply a couple of coats, but I adore the appearance of it. If you are searching for an inexpensive, everyday spring lipstick, this is your best option.
Mac Cremesheen “Fanfare” – Rounding out my favorite spring lipsticks is Mac’s “Fanfare.”Mac lipsticks are known for their consistency and long-lasting formulas, and “Fanfare” is no exception. This lipstick lasts longer than any other that I own. It is incredibly moisturizing and the color is the ideal balance between bold and casual. It is a very versatile shade that works with virtually any look. I will be donning “Fanfare” a lot this spring.
