Happy Monday! I hope these 5 bright shades bring a little pep to your week. I love an orange toned
lip at this time of year. It feels like we're past the pinks and cool reds of the winter and it's time to spice things up with some warmer tones.
1) Revlon - Matte Balm in 240 Striking Spectaculaire
This is a product that is just so easy to wear. It's not drying, but it is, I would say, demi-matte. It feels nice and doesn't fade too quickly, though it's not long wear. I think this is a great shade to wear on a low key kind of day.
2) Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in 063 Wild Watermelon
This is very similar in formula to the YSL Rouge Volepte Shines. I prefer these as they're more hydrating and about a quarter of the price with the same pigmentation. The packaging is the only thing that doesn't measure up to the YSL version.
3) Urban Decay - Revolution Lipstick in Bang
This is one of my favorite shades for spring. Perfect for the do-I-wear-red-or-orange kinds of days. It is the ideal, vintage red/orange shade that is so lovely and comfortable to wear all day. You know there are just some formulas that you're like "get off my mouth" a few hours in, not this one.
4) Nars - Audacious Lipstick in Geraldine
Another one of those comfortable lipsticks. I wore this for 13 hours with reapplication and didn't mind it at all. It doesn't need a lip liner and is easy to remove. Some kind of magic is in this formula and I will by getting another shade from this range in the future.
5) Becca - Beach Tint in Papaya
It's a lip tint, it's a blush, what more do you need? This is my all time favorite lip stain formula. It isn't drying, it doesn't look awful as it fades, it feels comfortable, and it is easy to reapply. It also looks great on no makeup days popped on the lips and cheeks to add some life to the face.
These are some of my favorite shades to wear this time of year, what are yours? I'd love to hear
from you in the comments. What shade calls to you the most? Can't wait to see what you think.
