5 Faves: Bright Lips

Happy first weekend of spring, chickens! While I may not wear them all too often, I'm a big lover of the bright lip trends that start up again come Spring. There's something about a bright lip that just makes you feel just that bit more confident, am I right? Here are my top five faves for spring/summer lip colours, complete with swatches.

Starting off from lightest to brightest, first comes Bourjois Colour Boost in Peach on the Beach. It's a fairly sheer, but still punchy, peachy-pink. It is a comfortable wear and not so bright that people stare when you take it out in public.
Next comes a darker and more orange-y coral, Revlon Coralberry. This formula can be a bit tricky, as it has got a slight glittery texture, but it really is a lovely more toned down orangey-coral. Tip: Make sure you've got your teeth looking their best before rocking this one!

Next up comes the boldest coral of the bunch. I absolutely love Rimmel Coral Queen for nights out in the Spring/Summer. The formula is dreamy and creamy and looks just fantastic with a tan, if you can put your imagination cap on and ignore the current lack of one.

Heading on over to the pink side of the brights, we have Revlon's Kissable Balm-Stain in Sweetheart. This is one I definitely see myself wearing more of this year. It's great for day to night, since it is not super bright while still making a statement, and lasts and lasts due to the staining qualities.

And finally, probably my favourite of the bunch, MAC Impassioned lipstick is an absolutely beautiful watermelon pink that is full-on colour and still comfortable to wear. I've gotten so many compliments when I wear this on nights out with the girls.

And there you have it - my top picks for adding a little pop of colour into your life this spring and summer.

Are you a fan of the statement lip?

  1. Just the other day I was thinking about how I am excited it is spring so I could wear brighter pink lipsticks! I love this post, thanks for sharing your picks!

  2. I wore Coral Queen through most of last Summer and when we had the sunshine the past couple of weeks (where has it gone now?!) I dug it out again, it's definitely a favourite of mine.
