Spring/Summer Lip Picks

Spring isn’t even officially here, yet it’s been in full bloom for a lot of cities around the world. This has already been getting me pretty excited for summer! I know I’m extremely ahead of myself since the new season has just begun, but I’ve been super eager to start sorting out my favorite lip colours to wear for the warmer and hotter days to come. As much as I love lipstick, I’m actually more of a lipgloss or lip cream kind of girl for an everyday look. So here are all my favorites for the seasons.

Whitening Lightning (a.k.a. Gerard Cosmetics) -Salmon: For all of last spring and summer this was my number one go-to. Just like the name, this is the most perfect salmon colour for the lips; it also compliments my skin tone and most likely a lot other skin tones as well. I will definitely be wearing this a lot this year as well.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Ibiza: I’ve always turned to this colour when I want a fun matte lip (you can see me wearing it here as well). I don’t normally go for colours like this on a everyday basis but this one seems to be an exception.

Nars Lipgloss – Super Orgasm: I’m not a fan of the name but I do love how this gloss has very fine glitters that help to enhance the appearance of my lips to look a bit bigger and fuller. This is the lipgloss to turn to when you have those days where you’re just not sure which colour one to wear.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish – Destiny: This one claims to have a plumping effect which I see does but just by a bit. I especially love the tingling-cool sensation it gives your lips right after applying. This colour is also on the coral side, which is always a a win-win for these seasons.

Korres Lip Butter – Quince: Wearing a lot of lipsticks and lipglosses can over-dry the lips, so when I’m wanting some colour on a bad lip day (you know when your lips are just not having it), I grab for this since it intensely moisturizes the lips while giving a wonderful tint to the lips.

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss – Picnic in the Park: There are very few pink lipglosses I can actually pull off, and the fact that this is one of them is pretty awesome. This has to be one of my favourite lipgloss consistencies as well since it really isn’t sticky at all and goes on very smoothly.
