Spring is almost here in Edmonton! Well…for a few more days at the least. The warmer weather is really getting me excited for spring time. I’m really looking forward to everything being green again and seeing all the flowers bloom. Spring is definitely one of my favourite times of the year. Another thing I love is spring makeup. I find that I always take inspiration from the flowers, my makeup is usually lighter and more natural this time of year (I’ll be doing a blog on my spring time makeup very soon). Today I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favourite spring time lipsticks! If you’re more of a liquid lipstick person I will be sharing my favourites in a part 2 of this post tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it!
These lipsticks are my favourite spring colours because they are very light and natural colours (there are brighter colours in the post tomorrow, so make sure to check it out). I have swatched each colour over my tattoo to show how opaque the formula is. Now lets get into the real reason you’re here, the lipsticks!
Nude Stix – Magnetic Matte in Blossom
I adore this lipstick! It is a stunning nude shade and this formula is amazing. It’s super opaque and once it dries down it does not move from your lips! It has the lasting power of a liquid lipstick in a stick formula.
Rimmel London – Lasting Finish by Kate in shade #42
This is an awesome drugstore matte lipstick. It applies beautifully and doesn’t dry out your lips at all!
Medusa’s Makeup in Sugar Daddy
I received this lipstick in my winter Luxe Box and I have been obsessed with it for months! It’s quite sheer, but gives your lips the most beautiful flush of colour without looking heavy. If you’re not a big lipstick wearer I would suggest checking this one out. It’s so light and perfect for spring and summer.
NARS – Audacious Lipstick in Anita
This lipstick will always have a special place in my heart as it is the one I wore on my wedding day. I also adore it because it is the perfect dusty rose shade, ideal for spring time!
Bite Beauty – Matte Crème Lipstick in Glacé
I love this colour because it is a medium pink/berry tone. Which truly does remind me of flowers and all things spring. Sorry for the stain on my arm in this picture! I swatched the liquid lipsticks for the post tomorrow before I realized I had missed this one…oops!
MAC – Frost Lipstick in Crème de la Femme
I’m going to be honest, I’m really not a fan of frost lipsticks. However, this one is such a beautiful pink that it has a permanent spot on my vanity. It was also gifted to me by my little sister so that makes me love it even more!
Here are all of the lipstick shades side by side. As you can tell I tend to lean more toward nude and pink tones during the spring. What colours do you wear during spring? What are some of your favourite lipsticks? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time internet friends!
