Guest Post: Spring Lip Colours by Lipgloss & LashesWednesday, April 16, 2014
Hi Ladies! I'm Becky and I usually blog over at Lipgloss & Lashes. I've been reading Corrie's blog for ages now and it's still a firm favourite of mine, so when I was given the opportunity to guest post I was thrilled. I thought I would share some of my favourite lip colours and products for Spring, now that the weather is finally getting warmer and the shops are filled with pretty pastels and bright florals!
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Golden Pink - If your into your pink and nude lipsticks like I am, then this one will be right up your street. Golden Pink is a pretty light pink colour with a hint of coral, making it perfect for this time of year. I love to wear this with a peach blusher and light neutral eyes for a day look.
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Soft Coral - I love wearing coral lipsticks throughout spring and summer and this one from Tarte is perfect. It's a lovely muted coral colour which isn't too orange, so it's perfect for me as there's no way I can pull off the orange lip trend! Tarte is also now available in the UK through QVC and at £20 for three, you can pick up these lipsticks for drugstore prices - bargain!
MAC Sunny Seoul - For me, this lipstick is the perfect cross between a pink and a coral colour, making it great for spring/summer. I'm a pink lipstick girl at heart so I never tend to stray too far from a pink lip, meaning that this shade is perfect for me as I can still work the coral trend while still sticking in my comfort zone with the pink tones in the lipstick. This is a cremesheen finish so it's ultra creamy and moisturising which I love.
MAC Girl About Town - Admittedly, I've only worn this lipstick a few times, but that's not because I don't like the colour (it's seriously beautiful), but because I'm too much of a chicken to rock a bright lip. However, on a night out this would be perfect. This looks great with some winged eyeliner and lots of lashes if you keep your face colour simple. It's also an amplified creme finish so this little bullet really does pack a punch of colour, I tend to only dab a little bit of this on as I find that's enough for me, but you could definitely create a statement lip with this colour.
Beautiful Movements Lipgloss in Gypsy Spirit - I thought I'd also include some lipglosses in this round up incase your more of a gloss girl, and this one would be perfect for spring. Gypsy Spirit is a neutral coral colour which is super pigmented and creamy, so it's perfect to just wear on its own if you didn't want to fuss around with lipstick.
E.L.F Mineral Lipgloss in Wild - Wild is another pink/coral colour and is quite similar to the Sunny Seoul lipstick that I've just mentioned. It's a really pretty coral pink with a very subtle golden shimmer running through it. This lipgloss goes on quite sheer so it would be perfect if you didn't want to wear too much colour, or to layer over a pink or coral lipstick.
The Balm Lipgloss in Girl Next Door - This is hands down one of the best lipglosses I've ever used. It's not sticky at all and applies so well, I really can't recommend it enough - and it smells like banoffee! Girl Next Door is a medium pink colour which is really similar to MAC Speed Dial Lipstick, it's edging towards being a bright lipgloss which makes it perfect for this time of the year too.
There you have it, my pick of the top lip colours for Spring. I hope you enjoyed reading this and thank you Corrie for letting me post on here while you are away!
