Top Five | Lip Colours for Spring

This post occurred to me on one of those four days we had last week when it looked as though Spring might finally have sprung... Then, of course, we went back to grey, rainy days and the whole idea became a bit too little, too late... As is usually the way. Nonetheless, I'm sharing it anyway in the hopes that there might be a few more nice days to come in the not-too-distant future! I'm not going to pretend I wear lipstick every day because that's simply untrue, but there's something about Spring that means I seem to remember a little more often... So here are some of my favourite picks now the days are (theoretically) getting longer and brighter!!
Spring Lip Colours Top Five
Top Five Spring Lip Colours Swatches
Collection Lasting Colour Lipstick in 'Sweet Tart' | £2.99 here |This range of lipsticks are super affordable and have a really lovely, creamy formula; 'Sweet Tart' is the sort of pink shade which just screams 'SPRING!!!' to me, I love it - it's so easy to wear and is bright but somehow without looking too much for daytime wear.
Sweet Tart Spring Lip Colours
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Elusive' | £7.99 here | I remember loving this when I picked it up last year, and then I've basically neglected it all winter. This is a very similar shade to 'Sweet Tart' but in a comfortable, wearable matte formula - because a girl always needs options!! I'd really like some more of the Revlon Colorburst balms as they're such a lovely formula.
Elusive Spring Lip Colours
B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick in 'Eton Mess' | £7.99 here | This little mini-lipstick came as part of a gift with purchase set quite some time ago now; it's another really pretty nude-pink type shade which is flattering on and super-easy to wear. I really need to try more B. make-up as I've had great results from the brand so far!
Eton Mess Spring Lip Colours
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in 'Speak Louder' | £15.50 here | I won this in a giveaway by the lovely Naffy a couple of months ago and seem to have been subconsciously saving it for a sunny day; it looks quite scary in the bullet, at least to me, but on the lips it's less dark and infinitely more wearable, with a creamy formula which is comfortable to wear and lasts reasonably well.
Speak Louder Spring Lip Colours
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in 'Voluptuous Violet'* | £3.99 here | Again, this is quite a scary shade in the bullet but being a balm rather than a lipstick, it applies very sheer, so that rather than making my lips purple, it instead gives them a pretty pink-ish tint. This is really moisturising and again, comfortable to wear - perfect for slightly colder or windier days to keep the lips in tip-top condition!!

  3. Nice picks. Elusive looks so light on you. Must be because I'm super pale, on me it's a looot darker but I still love that color. Pink really suits you.

  14. I already have Sweet Tart (which is gorgeous), but now I want the other 4 as well! LOL. When I saw the Clinique one in the top pic I thought it was going to be quite a dark shade, but it looks super wearable. Gorgeous <3
