Three Spring Lipstick Picks

Right To Left 
M.A.C- Hue, M.A.C- Snob, Lime Crime- Chinchilla 

Spring has well i cannot say sprung, Here in the UK the weather is awful. But to be honest i have been pulling all my spring products and make up for the last month. I wanted to show you my go to lipsticks this month and no doubt will be doing all the way through until summer.

Is described by mac as a soft pale pink of course it always looks brighter in the bullet. This has surprisingly become my go to nude! even over my beloved creme de nude. Crazy i know, It is a classic from mac and i truly believe it's a nude that will suit almost everyone. My only issue is the formulation it is a glaze which is my least favourite formulation that mac does, So if you have dry lips avoid like the plague and even if you think your lips are not dry this lipstick will make sure you know to get applying the lip balm. That said i really love it, It has a decent amount of coverage to give you a nice pink glaze to the lips. The wear time is not amazing you do have to reapply but this is one you can whip out of your bag and not need a mirror to apply. This i also love to put underneath snob it makes that shade so much more wearable if you are not going for barbie pink lips.
All in all i would say if your in the market for a nude i would say at least swatch this colour, There are a million and one nude lipsticks out there but i believe this is one of the most flattering on all skin types.

Described from mac as a light neutral pink but there is nothing neutral about this lipstick, It to me is a bright blue based pink which is amazing for making them teeth look whiter. This shade will defiantly vary what colour it will look on your lips depending on your skin tone but i am very fair, So it pulls brighter which i like and being slightly yellow based i am surprised it works on me. The only thing i would say is a satin but don't let that fool you, It is drying so you will have to combo with a good lip balm and/or gloss. But to me this shade is spring in a bullet, Swatch it and see. :)

You may notice i have not linked Lime Crime, I feel like as a brand i am not happy with them and will not purchase any more from them unless they change they whole company. I vowed to use up what i have from them. But before all this i have been wearing this shade alot, And the reason i am mentioning this lipstick is more for the shade itself rather than the lipstick. I am dipping a toe in the lilac/lavender lipstick trend. I was just to scared to wear it. But this month i have just been whipping it out and applying it by itself, Which is a major thing for me :) Like i said i have fair skin so it looks amazing on as well as of course making my teeth look whiter which is a major thing in the plus column also it last's well and its hugely pigmented, The only this is with opaque coverage usually comes drying out of your lips, Which this makes you lips look dry even with a good balm or lip gloss the good thing is you don't seem to actually loose moisture from your lips is good. The thing is i can't find a good lip liner to combo with this as it's not your usual lavender lipstick it is very grey based so i'm on the hunt.I will link some dupes if you are interested i just in good conscience would not recommend Lime Crime to you.

I know that was a lot of chat about three lipsticks, But in spring i really love to go to town with a lot of different shades. I do have a video of all my Spring Summer Lipsticks if you want to go and check that out, It is long but is has all the lipsticks on showing you what the actually look like rather than me swatching and holding up the tube.
