Spring: My Favourite Lippies

Hey honeybuns, this month has been a really bad month in terms of how much money I’ve spent and how much beauty I’ve accumulated, but the sadder thing is, is that most of the things I’ve bought haven’t even been delivered yet – sad times 😦

As it’s finally spring, and the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping (earlier and earlier -_-) and the days are becoming longer -yipee! I thought let you in on all the lippies I’ve been rocking this month… well, just because!

I’m a simple kinda gal, so I always stick to similar colours that suit my skin tone and that I feel confident wearing. As I’ve had a couple of days off work, I’ve been getting out and dressing up a little more than usual, so take a look at what I’ve been using on my lips, maybe you’ll try these out for yourself…

So first up – it obviously has to be a lip balm – a staple product in my makeup bag and if you read my Beauty Blogger Tag, I’m sure you know what it is. Last week I visited Lush and Β I was actually in need of a new lip balm as my old faithful – Carmex -had run out. I chose Honey Trap as it’s quite thick and instantly moisturising, and it smells like honey – can it get any better? The only downside is that it’s Β£6 for a small tub, but if you’re obsessed with lip balms like I am, take the plunge it’s a beaut!

Next up is my NYX Strawberry Parfait Butter Gloss.Β This is a very recent buy for me, but I’m loving this gloss. I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of NYX products but this gloss is perfect for me, it gives a great pink finish that’s not too offensive and ideal for wearing to work. The applicator is a great size too as well as the consistency – if like me and you get annoyed with really sticky formulas that are horrible to apply, this is a pleasant buy.

I’m a diva at heart, so when I saw this beautiful MAC lip liner and looked at the name I knew it was meant to be lol. Ms Diva is a beautiful wine colour that looks great as a lip liner to add a deeper tone to a pink gloss or just great you want to use all over your lip. It has great lasting power too.

I love, love, love this lippie, it’s one of my all time favourite and it’s a great colour for all year round. I bought this Urban Decay lipstick in ShameΒ last year while in Barcelona and the packaging is so lush.Β I think its great for making an instant and easy statement, especially if the rest of your makeup is quite natural. The consistency of this lipstick is really creamy and not at all drying, which is what keeps me coming back!

I’m always on the hunt for a good nude, but its so hard to find a great shade that compliments me #blackgirlproblems. On one of my last trips to Mac I found this lipstick which took forever to find – there’s just so much choice! Polished Up is a beautiful brownish pink shade that gives my lips a nice flush of colour. I often grab this one on work days or when I don’t want anything too noticeable on my lips. Again it’s really creamy, lending itself to natural makeup looks.

Last but not least is an unexpected find –Β Barry M’s Cor Balmy in Rose Lea! It smells like marshmallows and gives me an iridescent pink hue on my lip, which I love for spring. This is my go-to lippie for every day, it’s so effortless and complements any makeup look I do.
