Hi everyone, since the sun is out (for a few seconds) it gave me the inspiration to go through my lip draw and start picking out the colours that I will wear this season. All my lip choices happen to some form of matte lipstick so I do apologise but I don't lean towards glossy or satin finishes during this time. Also how wonderful is my blog title? Quite a tongue twister. Getting into the post.....

Since I've been clearing out my lipstick wardrobe/collection (blog sale here) it really allows me to identify which colours that I actually use and love. Starting with one of my most loved and forgotten summer choice; the Revlon Colourburst Matte Lip Balm in the shade Elusive & Audacious. It seems like everyone has gotten over the hype of these when they first launched and wanted to own every single colour in the collection (me included). I still love these especially the shades I picked out, I've never been a neon pink girl but I am all for the orange tones hence Audacious. I like how these have a twist up applicator, therefore, you don't need to sharpen them, they last about 4-5 hours on me and has a cool/minty feeling on the lips. Because it is very matte you do need to make sure your lips are well exfoliated. 

Would it really be a post of mine without a ColourPop mention, I adore the Ultra Satin Lip formulas and the shade Echo Park and Screenshot is my go to spring choices. Echo park is more of a pink nude and screenshot is more of orange/peach. They both show up brighter on my lips since my lips are pigmented in colour but they are my perfect go-to shades. They have an incredible creamy formula, feels very comfortable on the lips and lasts until you need to eat. 

Lastly lip choices that I have loved and forgotten about, the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick, in Double Dare this is seriously a beautiful muted pink, the formula is creamy and easy to apply, I much prefer the mini size since I think it is easier to apply on the lips, this lasts on your lips and leaves a stain like finish, so if you eat and drink it wears off naturally

The NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes is a beautiful rose pink. I've actually finished a tube of this and I've repurchased a backup. The SMLC formula is a little drying for me but the colours make up for that, I have to prep my lips very well before I use this, but it is a lovely spring colour. As you can tell I'm an all or nothing type of girl and I love these bright pops of colour with a simple winged eyeliner look. 

That is all for this post, what are your spring picks?

  3. I see so many beautiful lipsticks! I love all the ones you've picked out!! I just wish I could wear them on a daily basis, but it gets a bit difficult when I have to do flute practice and I don't like anything on my lips! X

  11. Double dare looks like something I would pick immediately :)
    I don't have seasonal lipsticks, I wear them all all the time, depending on my mood and outfit and the rest of the makeup. So I don't care for glossy lips during warm weather or matte during winter... :)
