Best Lipsticks for Spring - Spring Lipstick Trends

Color is something I tend to shy away from.  An ultra bright eye shadow look, green mascara, or ombre multi-shade hair are not my strong points. Pair my color intimidation with my conservative work setting, and you’ve got yourself an all natural, nude-color-loving beauty blogger.  For me, color is good, but in small doses - think neon manicures on short nails or pastel pink lipstick on a sunny day. With the official arrival of Spring today, it’s time to do a bit of spring cleaning and replace my moisturizing, darker lip colors for SPF, long lasting, bright shades lipsticks.

Maybelline Limited Edition Buffs Ravishing Rose is a matte pink from the Maybelline Dare to go Nude Spring 2014 Collection.  The Buffs lipsticks have a rose scent, apply easily, and have longevity due to their strong pigmentation.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm SPF 15 in Pink Satin adds just a touch of moisturizing color and muted sparkles (with SPF protection!) (review and swatches here).

Mac Limited Edition Sweet and Sour is my go-to orange for a Sunday brunch outing - this cream sheen shade is bright and commands attention while also being flattering (review and swatches here).

For those days when I feel a bit more adventurous, I love wearing the Maybelline Color Whisper in Oh La Lilac - this is my ‘Barbie’ lip color as it’s a pretty balance between pink and rose lilac (review and swatches here).

And because no lipstick repertoire is complete without a red shade, I have to introduce you to my Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Private Party lipstick (thank you to my fiance for this lovely gift!). Velvet Rope by Lipstick Queen is a collection that features soft matte shades reminiscent of Old Hollywood Glamour.  Private Party, a bright pink-red color, has an amazingly soft texture and pigmentation (well worth the investment for any lipstick lover!).

Stay Pretty, Miranda M.

    ooooh my goodness that lipstick queen lipstick is BEAUTIFUL! It’s also not the most affordable one haha! Still, I adore that shade!

    I know some people like either nude or bright shades but I have to say, I enjoy either! I just bought NARS Red Square (rather than Morange which I debated) and I absolutely love it!
    Lovely Notions

    Oooh I love this post! Now, I am inspired to do my own version of my Spring lipstick picks. I wish that MAC one wasn’t limited edition though! I’ve never seen it before but I can see how gorgeous it is! I am in search of a new orange-ish light shade lipstick. And yess to Oh La Lilac! One of my favorite light pink/purple pastels =P

    Loved this post!
