Punch Up Your Lip Color This Spring

I love changing my lip color a bit with the seasons.  Spring makes me think of softer and brighter colors.  I won’t go too bright, but I do love a good coral, pink and peach!

Below are some lip colors that I have been testing.  All are different but really pretty and will get you ready for Spring!

NYC New York Color Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain
NYC New York Color Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain

NYC New York Color lets you smooch away without smooching away your lip color with the Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain ($4.99 USD). This longwearing lip stain stays put for hours, so you can kiss to your heart’s content.

This lightweight, transfer-proof stain delivers irresistibly smooth, vivid lip color all day long. With its precise felt tipped pen applicator system, lining lips and filling them in requires one easy step for lust-worthy lips that won’t budge.

What I think:  This is a very affordable way to wear the new lip stains markers that are out now.  I have been loving Orange on the Go.  It’s a light, wearable orange that when I wear it alone, it looks like I’ve been eating a pop sickle, or I can put a shimmery gloss over it for a really fresh look.

Available in 13 smooch proof shades at drugstores nationwide

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms ($7 USD) For just a hint of color and a whole lot of conditioning. The Botanical  Waxes in these softly tinted balms will take your lips to lovely in one  pretty swipe. They come in a range of 9 naturally flattering shades, 4  of which are new! Blush Orchid, Caramel Daisy, Petunia and Sweet Violet.
What I think:  LOVE!  I have been wearing this every day in Petunia, a nude pink.  It is so easy to swipe on and it looks more polished than a clear lip balm.  And it is so moisturizing!

Jane Iredale Puremoist Lipstick
Jane Iredale Puremoist Lipstick
Jane Iredale Puremoist Lipstick ($25 USD) — Vivid pigments blend with nourishing natural oils and superfruit extracts for petal‐soft lips that feel, look and taste amazing.Ripe, juicy colors saturate the lips with 24 versatile shades that dress the lips with high‐impact color and sumptuous depth. The continuously creamy, rich and smooth formula glides on easily for long‐lasting color. The sleek tube is designed for easy and precise application.

What I think:  The color I have been testing is Rikki.  It is described as a bubble gum pink, but I think it’s more of a pretty rose.  This is perfect when I want to go one step further than a colored balm.  It is sheer, but so pretty! Perfect for work and the weekend because it lasts a few hours before needing to reapply!


Face Stockholm Lipstick in Toffee
Face Stockholm Lipstick in Toffee

Face Stockholm Lipstick in Toffee ($22 USD) — Available in three formulas — traditional Creams for a rich creamy coverage, classic Mattes for color-saturation with no shine and subtle Veils for a sheer wash of moisturizing color.

What I think:  Toffee is a cream and it goes on smooth and covers really well.  This color is so perfect for spring.  It is soft, but does give a pretty pop of coral.

I was given this gloss in Nude York City to review compliments of www.influenster.com.  This is a wonderful site that gives free products for review — you just need to sign up!

I LOVE this gloss.  It is as good as many of the prestige brands that I review.  It is not sticky — actually it is very moisturizing.  And it tastes good — just a light vanilla flavor.  I don’t usually wear nudes, but this one is very pretty.  I highly recommend this product!
