What better way to prepare for the glorious spring weather than packing your makeup bag full of the perfect lip shades to rotate through each season. From a crisp spring strolls to the fields of Coachella, we’ve got the five shades you need in your life.
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick in Lolita
The new reboot of the studded kiss creme lipstick is the most perfect creamy color for daytime wear. The product is weightless, long lasting, and best of all, it free from any parabens. Lolita is the perfect nude pink shade with just a hint of rose and is 1 of 40 shades in the new reboot of the Studded Kiss collection. Find it at Sephora.
Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in Rose Ink
Lip stains are loved for a variety of reasons, however the number one reason has to be longevity. This matte, lightweight formula gives high impact color and will literally last all day. You have to be careful when applying because the formula dries quickly. Color 3 (Rose Ink) is a bright pink shade that adds that perfect punch of color to any neutral makeup or spring smokey eye. Find YSL Beauty at Sephora, Hudson’s Bay, or Holt Renfrew.
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine Lipstick in S or 550
Orange is always a hard color to wear. It’s bright and intimidating and we tend to leave it on the shelf even though deep down we really want to try it. The great thing about the sheer shine lipstick is that it has a glossy shine finish giving the bright orange shade a little more transparency (and thus a little less scary). It’s a melting lipstick with intense pigment but a glossy finish that glides on easy and keeps the lips moisturized throughout the day. Find Shu Uemura products at Sephora or Hudson’s Bay.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Fenty Gloss Bomb in Shimmering Rose Nude
This is a gloss for everyone. If you haven’t tried it, this is a gloss you need to carry with you at all times, and we’re not just saying that because it was handpicked by Rihanna herself. It’s a universal shade that looks good on every skin tone, and it’s also shiny, conditioning, and moisturizing. It’s paraben free and has a peach vanilla smell you can’t get enough of. Find it at Sephora.
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain in Rose
This product is definitely an oldie, but most definitely a goodie. It gives your lips a sexy, flush, kinda-bitten look. The tint is very sheer but just the right amount for day or night. We will never get enough of the Benetint. You can purchase it in a large or mini size at Shoppers Drug Mart’s Beauty Boutique, Sephora, Hudson’s Bay, or Murale.
