My Spring Lip Picks – lip gloss haul
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Today I wanted to share with you some of my top picks for lip products for the Spring and Summer!
Orange and coral are dominating the market in popularity, so you will see quite a bit of those hues in this list.
Also, I’ve found that coral is really quite versatile when it comes to working with different skin tones!
Before we get into the shades, we need to make sure that with all the dry air and sun that our lips are moisturized and protected!
My current favorite lip product is one I recently purchased, and that is the Jack Black Lip Balm in Grapefruit and Ginger. Not only does this have an amazing smell and taste, but it has SPF 25 and ingredients that allow it to effortlessly smooth your lips in seconds.
If you’re interested, all the flavors can be found at Sephora for $7.50 each!
Lets get into the shades!
Revlon’s Coral Reef is a beautiful jelly based coral. Much less color pay off, but gives a nice liveliness to your lips. Perfect on its own, or layered on top of your favorite coral lipstick.
This post wouldn’t be complete without a little visit from the Revlon Lip Butters.
My top picks for spring and summer are Tutti Frutti, a vivid orange, and Sweet Tart, a beautiful berry pink.
This is one of my most used lip glosses, all year round. As you can tell by the name even rubbing off of the bottle, Nymphette is a crowd favorite that works for anyone. It’s pink undertones with beautiful gold shimmer make it a perfect addition to your “bronzed goddess” look in the Summer!
Continuing on with the oranges, Revlon’s Papaya gives orange a twist with some gorgeous golden shimmer. It makes your lips look alive and sunkissed.
MAC’s Pink Lemonade is another crowd favorite. With another sheer coral application, it brings your lips alive with a little color and sparkle. This is notorious for just being beautiful on it’s own.
A little more on the orange side of coral, MAC’s Strange Potion proves itself perfect for spring and summer with it’s coral hue. This shade is a bit more opaque than Pink Lemonade, which makes it better to wear on it’s own if you are looking for some more color payoff.
My go-to shade lately, Viva Glam Nicki is a bright vivid yellow based pink that works beautifully for spring and summer. I recommend this shade to anyone, it can be sheered out if you’re shy!
With a pigmentation close to a permanent marker, OCC’s Grandma is a beautiful true coral. Just be incredibly careful when applying, this huge swatch came from what was left over on the tube!
If you’re looking for something more on the subtle side, available at CCO’s, MAC’s Gentle Simmer is your best bet. With a slight golden shimmer and a beautiful peachy pink undertone, it’s a go to shade for me.
One of my favorites year after year, Chanel’s Bikini Peach is a baby peach color with golden shimmer. This is a beautiful shade and incredibly wearable.
