Looking out my window right now I’d say we’re back in Winter. Dull, grey skies and an icy wind, where had the lovely sun gone!? So I thought to brighten the day up I would write my top five pink lipsticks, the spring edit. Enjoy…
I thought I would start with the darkest of the pinks I have to show you. MUA Shade 3, a bold, berry sort of pink. Across between a raspberry and strawberry. The texture of this lipstick is really nice and creamy. It glides on the lips like a dream and has the slightest of vanilla scents. The staying power isn’t the best so you would have to top up, however, it does leave a slight stain on the lips as it is a darkish colour. Perfect for a statement lip.
After the huge stir these caused a year ago, you can see my post here, these still haven’t left my favourite lip balms yet! This of course is Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. This is brilliant for when you’re on the go. It moisturises and adds a nice tint to the lips. If I was going to a festival I would definitely bring this along as it has SPF 20, smells amazing, plus I love the colour!
Revlon regularly have their 2 for £10 offer on lipsticks, so I decided to get this in Summer last year. I have been waiting for Spring to come so I could use it again and voila here it is. Front Row Ultimate Suede Lipstick, a pearly pink. Perfect for when I want to go full on girly. I really would like a pair of shoes this colour too… Anyway it has a really smooth texture but will show up any dry patches you have on your lips so I suggest using a lipscrub beforehand.

Another Revlon product; this time it’s their Sugar Frosting Lip Butter. This is perfect for moisturising the whilst adding the slightest pink tint at the same time. This is brilliant for on the go lip reapplication. This is because it almost has no colour meaning it isn’t catastrophic if you don’t apply perfectly.
My final lip item is an MUA Lipstick, Juicy from the photo below it looks to be more of a coraly pink, whereas it is actually more of a bright orangey pink. It’s surprisingly wearable but wouldn’t look out of place at a festival as a statement lip. I think it would look perfect with nude eyeshadow and an eyeliner flick.
So it may be dull and grey at the moment outside, but I hope my top 5 spring pinks inspire you to dress a little more summery!
