Paint Your Pout With New Spring Lip Colors

Looking for a new gloss or balm to lighten your Spring look?  That’s a great idea!  Changing your lip color or product type (gloss, balm, lipstick), can update your look without too much fuss.  Here are some fun new products to try:

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Orange Tulip

Laura Mercier Lip Glacé ($24 USD) is a high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture.

There are three new limited-edition Lip Glacés for summer. They are Camellia, Orange Tulip, and Lotus Blossom.  I have Orange Tulip and love it.  It isn’t too orange, and is a sheer way to wear the “it” color of the season.

Availability: lauramercier.com, Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and select Belk, Blue Mercury, Lord & Taylor, and Macys.

Nuance Salma Hayek Ultra Shine Lip Gloss

One of my favorite new lip glosses is Nuance Salma Hayek Ultra Shine Lip Gloss $7.49 USD).  Silky, smooth formula hydrates and helps protect lips. Mimosa extract and mango seed oil help nourish and moisturize lips through deep hydration. Vitamins A, C, & E condition and help protect lips. Hypoallergenic. Paraben free. Not tested on animals.

I have this in Peony, which is the second from the last color in the photo above. It is a sheer pink that is perfect for the season.

Available at CVS/pharmacy retail locations and on www.cvs.com/nuancesalmahayek

Shiseido Shimmering Rouge in Sorbet

Shiseido Shimmering Rouge in Sorbet ($25 USD) Sheer, brilliant color infuses lips with lasting moisture and fullness. Lips have never looked so all-day sensuous. With photo-smoothing pearl, this moisturizing formula will give a fuller appearance to lips.

Available in 20 shades.  I have this in Sorbet, which is a new shade.  It is a light, creamy pink.  Very pretty on.  It is full color, but feels like a balm.

You can find this at www.shiseido.com.

Mirabella Colour Luxe

Mirabella Colour Luxe ($26 USD) lip gloss creates maximum shine with three-dimensional, light-reflecting shimmer. The combination of iridescent and pearlescent pearls create a star-like effect on the lips, taking Colour Luxe gloss to a new level of color purity, brightness and dimensionality. Vitamin-enriched long-lasting formula moisturizes, conditions, and provides antioxidant protection and anti-aging properties.

These glimmering glosses are not for the shy!  I love Spark, the second color from the left in the photo above.  It is a gorgeous peachy-nude.  The applicator is a flat sponge paddle, which gives even coverage. LOVE!

Three Custom Color Transformer Duo Champagne

Have you ever had that lip color that was close, but just not “perfect?” Use Three Custom Color’s new Transformer Duo: Champagne ($27.50 USD)  to warm up or cool down your favorite (or not-so-favorite) lip shades!

The split-pan compact contains two high-quality gloss pigments to be your own mix master with a smooth, softly shimmering formula that’s never gummy or sticky.

This is so cool!  I do try a lot of lip colors and many are too pink, or two brown.  This works to even out the color perfectly.  Now all of the lip colors that you have can work for you.

You can purchase this at www.threecustom.com.

Enjoy your luscious lips!
