Springtime Lip Wardrobe

Thursday, 21 April 2016






Even though you wouldnt believe it looking at the weather, spring is offcially here and so are colourful clothes, floral scents and fresh make up - including new lip shades!
In the Spring I favour a pink lip as I feel it compliments a lot of my outfits and adds a blush of colour to the face. Today, I'm rounding up some of my favourites;

ESSENCE LONGLASTING LIPSTICK NUDE IN 'COME NATURALLY 03' | RRP £2.30

This bargain lipstick has well and truly earned its place in my spring lip wardrobe. Essence have launched a new collection of their Longlasting Lipsticks for spring but 'Come Naturally 03' is my favourite original. I love the creamy feel as I apply it and the 'griege' nude colour really suits my skin tone. They don't last ages on the lips, expect to re-apply every 3-4 hours, but for the price point you couldn't ask for more from a lipstick!

E.L.F STUDIO MINERAL LIPSTICK IN 'BEAUTIFUL BERRY' | RRP £6.00 

I love E.L.F, their products are affordable, they're cruelty free and I find the 'Studio' packaging sleek and sexy! This mineral lipstick is perfect for the more dull spring days as its got just a hint of autumnal berry mixed in with a seasonal blush pink! This works best when your lips are prepped with a balm and lined or it can bleed a little but overall, it's a perfect spring shade and the sleek black bullet looks gorgeous on my vanity!

M.A.C MATTE LIPSTICK IN 'MEHR' | RRP £15.50

Of course, I had to include a matte finish lipstick in my springtime collection as they are still super hot and, well, I just love them! M.A.C 'Mehr' is a new shade to my collection - Dan surprised me with it after one of his meetings up in London - and it works so beautifully for this time of year! This lipstick applies so opaquely that you really only need one application and you don't need to build it up at all, and even though it is a matte finish it isn't drying on the lips whatsoever.

BOURJOIS ROUGE EDITION VELVET LIPSTICK MATTE IN 'NUDE-IST' | RRP £8.99

I have owned this for some time now but I do tend to reserve it for warmer, sunnier days as the colour is more of a rose pink than a nude as the name would suggest. I love how slick this is to apply and the narrow applicator means you can really keep 'to the lines' of your lips. This dries to a matte finish and, much like 'Mehr', it is non-drying. I find this lasts a good half-day on the lips before you need to re-apply and the glass bottle is oh-so pretty!

GERARD COSMETICS LIPSTICK IN 'BUTTERCUP' | RRP £9.50

Oh Gerard Cosmetics, why you so beautiful?! My Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks take pride of place on my vanity as they are just so stunning! 'Buttercup' was the first one I owned and my obsession fully began with it! The Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks smell so sweet and yummy and the colour pay-off is always a dream. I do find this shade can create a little drag on the lips when applying so just make sure you've prepped with a good balm first.

  1. I love Essence lipsticks! I recently bought Barely There and I agree with you that it doesn't last long on the lips. Nonetheless, I love how it feels and it's very affordable too! Mac Mehr is another great lipstick that I have yet to try Xx

  4. I love Essence lipsticks and I have lots of this brand, they have nice shades but they are not longlasting. Mehr looks lovely too!
