Hello all and happy Monday! I’ve noticed I have been reaching for three lipsticks lately this spring season and wanted to share them with you. Are they the traditional spring pinks? No, they are just what I have been liking a lot at the moment and it’s spring, so here are my spring lipstick picks deal with it :P.
Dior Rouge – 999
A bit more on the pricey side, but this shade has a cult following for a reason, it looks AMAZING ON EVERYONE. This highly pigmented satin finish (also comes in matte, which apparently is the iconic version, whoopy doo) with blue undertones is part of the Rouge Dior lipstick line which is full of iconic reds, corals, and pinks in both satin and matte finishes. I got color matched with this in Sephora about 2 months ago and it took me forever to find a store that had this in stock. But with help from Courtney, I got it on Macy’s online.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern – Bond Girl
Another more pricey option, but well worth it. This is a very buildable formula, and although it is technically a matte finish it sits more as a satin-ish finish on me. It’s about a shade or two darker than my natural lips colors and is described as a chic natural berry (and I do feel chic wearing it). It is a great everyday lipstick and I usually gravitate towards this during the week or during the day on weekends.
Sephora Collection – 04 Brown is Back!
Let me take you back to the early 2000s when I was obsessed with a Bonnie Bell brown lipstick – fast forward to the more sophisticated option at Sephora, so I guess technically brown is back. The color is such a modern take on the iconic 90/00’s brown lip, it’s been reinvented as a pinky light brown shade. This lipstick has a surprising staying power without the over drying that matte lipsticks can cause sometimes. For only $14 dollars I would totally repurchase and try other colors in the line (spoiler alert; I already have).
What colors are you finding yourself wearing lately?
