I opened up my laptop to write this blog post and was shocked to see it’s been almost a month since I published anything! Oops…I honestly don’t know where the last month has gone, I’m sure I only wrote that post like a week ago…
Anyway, we were all well and truly spoilt with the weather over the weekend. It was so sunny and warm and it really perked me up. I usually prefer the colder weather if I’m being honest but it is nice to finally see the sun shining and to feel warm without a jacket.
It inspired me to have a bit of a reorganise of my makeup collection. I’ve been reaching for dark, wintery tones a lot since September but I realised that I should probably brighten things up a little. I’ve put together a small round up of my favourite lip colours for Spring and I’d be interested to hear what your favourites are too!
The first colour is my absolute favourite from the selection, it’s the Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate lipstick in shade 37. It’s a gorgeous vibrant red with a really moisturising formula. I feel like red is a colour that can be worn all year round and that’s why this lipstick is one of my all time favourites.
Next is the L’Oreal Color Riche in Gold Obsession. I’ve mentioned this lipstick before, it’s a beautiful subtle pink with a slight gold reflect. Again, a beautiful moisturising formula – although this one doesn’t stay put for hours so worth popping in your bag for touch ups.
The first matte of the bunch is Hush from the L.A Girl Flat Velvet Matte collection. It’s a beautiful dusky pink colour that looks great when you don’t want anything too OTT. This is also super versatile as it looks beautiful in the colder months with a smoky eye or winged liner.
And finally, the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin. These lipsticks are incredible, they’re the most comfortable liquid mattes I’ve ever tried. They are a little more pricey than a drugstore lipstick but the quality is phenomenal. Celebrity Skin is the perfect nude for my (fair) skin tone, it also stays on for hours so you don’t need to worry too much about touching it up.

So these are the lipsticks that I’ll most likely be reaching for the most over the next couple of months, what lipsticks are your favourites for Spring? Let me know!
