Spring Essentials: Lip Edition

Believe it or not Spring is finally here and summer is literally just around the corner. You wouldn’t quite believe that given the dire weather today as I write this post – it is raining and miserable outside and I am even contemplating turning the heating on!

On Tuesday I brought to you my Spring Essential Make Up and today as promised it’s all about the perfect Spring lips. I found it really difficult to pick a few lipsticks so this is a rather long post! Now let’s jump in. 

MAC Fast Play, Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral, MAC Vegas Volt

MAC Fast Play

This is one of my newest lipsticks and I absolutely adore it. Fast Play has an amplified finish which means it is highly pigmented but with a creamy finish which is really comfortable to wear. I love the nude mauve shade which is perfect for the warmer months.

Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral

This is one of my favourite lipsticks which my wonderful boyfriend bought me for my birthday in October. Now is the perfect weather to let this lipstick shine. I love the creamy long lasting formula and the stunning pink coral shade. Such a beautiful perfect lipstick.

MAC Vegas Volt

This is another amplified finish from MAC. This is a very similar shade to Coachella Coral by Charlotte Tilbury but with a slightly more peachy finish. An essential for spring which will take me right through the summer months.

Rimmel Kate Moss Nude 45, Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend, Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Firebird, Clarins Joli Rouge Rosewood

Rimmel Kate Moss Nude 45

This is a lipstick which is somewhat under loved by me. I seem to forget about it and when I do rediscover it I fall back in love. This is such a beautiful nude shade with a tiny hint of mauve. Perfect for when I just want a bit of colour. 

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend

I absolutely love the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collobaration and the lipsticks are incredible. Ex-Girlfriend is a beautiful nude shade in a sheer finish. It feels like a lipbalm on the lips and it’s great to apply on the go with no mirror needed. This is a staple in my bag.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Firebird 

When I want a bold pop of cover I reach for this absolutely gorgeous bright fuschia pink lipstick. This has a creamy finish which is long lasting and really comfortable to wear. Firebird is a stunning hot pink shot through with beautiful blue toned irridescent which makes it really pop on the lips. Beautiful.

Clarins Joli Rouge Rosewood

This is my one and only lipstick from Clarins. This has a lovely moisturising formula and gives a gentle wash of mauve. I also love the sweet and fruity scent. Delicious. 

L’Orèal lipgloss More of Bora Bora, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes, Bourjois Souffle de Velvet Ravie en Rose, NYX Butter Gloss Crème Brulee

L’Orèal Lipgloss More of Bora Bora

I love having a good sheer lipgloss which I can wear alone or for a shine over lipstick. This gives a high shine finish with a tiny hint of bright pink. Love it.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes

The brand NYX is a new discovery for me. If you missed my mini haul post then click here – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream & Butter Gloss. This is a super long lasting formula which feels totally weightless on the lips. Perfect for lasting throughout a hot sunny day.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet Ravie en Rose

This is an unusual formula and finish as it is a sheer matte. I actually really like the subtle wash of long lasting colour it gives to the lips and it’s the perfect peachy pink shade. 

NYX Buttergloss Crème Brulee

Finally, last but by no means least I have the beautiful Crème Brulee from NYX. This has a smooth formula which isn’t sticky or irritating. I love the vanillary baked goods scent of this gloss and it gives a gentle wash of pink to the lips.
