It's finally Spring! Yes, it's been Spring for a couple of weeks now, but it definitely hasn't felt like Spring where I live until recently. Today, it's pretty and warm outside, so it inspired me to do a post about Spring lip colors. 
So, how about a little Spring Inspiration?
Spring is typically when you'll be wearing more pastel shades, but I did include a couple of brighter colors as well that will work later this spring and summer. 
Let's start with lipstick! I did the lipstick and lip gloss swatches separately rather than shoving it all together.


From Left to Right:
Revlon Balm Stain in Darling, Revlon Matte Balm in Unapologetic, Revlon Matte Balm in Showy, Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Fuschia Fever, Maybelline Vivid Lipstick in Shocking Coral, MAC Creme Cup, MAC Vegas Volt, Too Faced La Creme Juicy Melons.

As you can tell, Showy and Fuschia Fever are nearly identical as well as Unapologetic and Shocking Coral, with a slight variation in tones. I wanted to give a few options, in case you already have one of the shades. I also linked the reviews and more swatches for each shade above.

Now, onto the lip glosses.




From Left to Right Buxom lipgloss in Leslie, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle, MAC Lip Glass in Nymphette, Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee, Nyx Butter Gloss in Merengue, Nyx Butter Gloss in Apple Struedel.

You'll notice again how much the Buxom Lip Gloss and MAC Nymphette are similar. 

As someone who isn't a huge lipgloss fan, I tend to stick with lipsticks, but I wanted to give both options, as well as some high end and drugstore options. I know that Orange and Purple shades are on trend for Spring, but I'm not a huge fan of either to be honest. Orange shades have a tendency to make your teeth look yellow and purple just takes a lot of confidence to pull off. I'm much happier with a pink or coral, anytime.

There will be more of these posts coming up, as well as a Spring Fashion inspiration post. I love doing these, so they'll be up very soon.

Thanks for reading & make sure to check the links for full reviews and swatches of the products!
