Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive Mac Lipstick in Lovelorn Topshop Lipstick in Macaroon Soap and Glory Lipstick in The Missing Pink and Mac Lipstick in Vegas Volt

Spring is the time to bring out the bright lips, I've moved away from the deep berries and the pale nudes and i'm embracing the pinks and the corals for a more Spring appropriate look. I've chosen my top five lipsticks today and in another post i'll share with you my top five lipglosses for Spring.

First up, Revlon's Matte Balm in Elusive (RRP: £7.99) this is a gorgeous matte pink that can be built up for a brighter look or worn quite sheer for the perfect day time finish. This is the only matte shade out of the bunch because I prefer a glossier look for Spring but with some exfoliation and lip balm this leaves a really flawless look. Next is the first of my Mac lipsticks for Spring in the shade Lovelorn (RPP: £15) (you can see my collection here). This again is a subtle Barbie pink. It's brighter than Elusive without it being in your face. I like this for work during the Spring, the colour really suits my skin tone. This is a Lustre finish which is creamy and glossy on the lips, perfect finish for Spring.

Then we have my newest addition to my Lipstick collection (hauled here) which is Macaroon by Topshop (RPP: £8). This is a gorgeous pink, coral shade which again can be built up to be a bright colour or worn sheer for a more subtle look. This looks a bit patchy when you first apply it so I blot the first coat and go in with a second which leaves a much nicer, flake free finish. This next lipstick is influenced by the lovely Fleur who I've seen talk about this loads. It's the Soap & Glory lipstick in The Missing Pink (RRP: £9). This is the most subtle of the five shades, a more nude colour than pink. What I love about this is the colour when it's on the lips, honestly it doesn't look brilliant in the bullet but once applied it leaves the glossiest finish. The nude colour is a 'your lips but better' shade and the packaging is just gorgeous.

Finally, another Mac lipstick this time in Vegas Volt (RRP: £15) a coral, orange shade which is pretty bright. This is an amplified finish which is super creamy and long lasting. I think this suits all skin tones, I'm really pale and my mum is a lot darker then me and we both have it. This is the perfect shade to take you right through Spring and Summer and I wore it so much last year. Shades like this are really worth investing in as they last so long.


What shades are you loving for Spring?

  3. I still don't know why I haven't picked up a topshop lipstick yet. People keep saying they are amazing and I keep saying I'm going to get one and I still haven't...shame on me hehe. Macaroon is such a stunning colour.

  5. Vegas Volt is my faaaaav at the moment! I was worried at first that it would be too bright for me because I'm quite pale too, but it's so flattering!
    I really need to check out the Topshop Lipsticks, the packaging is so cute!
