With the weather somewhat warming up, it's time to ditch the dark lipsticks. I'm not quite ready to start bringing out the bright coral colours, so here's what I typically wear in spring. I always wear some sort of lip product be it lipstick, tints, gloss or even tinted balm; so I'm always mixing it up to match the seasons.
When it comes to this time of the year I usually stick to subtle toned pinks and nudes but I can't resist a red lip. My go to nude lipstick is MUA Bare. Somehow I've managed to get through five of these and if that doesn't show I much I love them, I don't know what will. It's the perfect nude for my skin tone as it has a slight peachy tone to it, not too pale but not too many brown (a usual problem for me.) They last all day without drying out the lips too.
MAC's Pink Plaid is probably my most favourite lipstick of all time. You can't beat their lipsticks, especially not their matte finishes. This shade is a subtle pink with slight mauve undertones which compliments my skin nicely. I love No7 Shine & Tint in Posy. A pinky brown shade which is perfect on its own but also looks stunning upon other products. I love layering this upon No7 Precision Pencil in Soft Blush.
If I'm looking for a bold red lip, I'll switch between Inglot Lipstick in the shade 230 and the ELF Matte Lip Colour in Rich Red. The Inglot lipstick is more of a 'perfect' red. A vibrant red with blue undertones and I just the formula of these lipsticks, super creamy with good lasting power. ELF Matte Lip Colour has more of a pink undertone. I really like the colour against my skin when I've got some fake tan on but as for it being matte? Nope! This definitely has more of a satin finish.

What are your lipstick shades for spring?
