Spring Lipstick Favorites // Oranges & Corals
I've really been into warm lipsticks lately. Let me rephrase that: I've really been into warm lipsticks when I have the energy to shower, do my hair, slap on some makeup and look presentable lately. I am always on the hunt for fun colors and I love seeing them on other people to see what they look like with different hair colors, skin tones and eye colors. It just makes lipsticks "come alive" rather than seeing a swatch on a hand (which don't get me wrong, is still super helpful). These 4 have been making their way into my Spring rotation more than any others from the orange/coral/warm pink family so I thought I'd give them a quick shout-out. Let me warn you that the BEAUTIFUL YSL Rouge Volupte shade you see in the bottom righthand photo (it's called 'Rose Paris 27') is discontinued (wamp wamp!) Don't you hate when that happens?? It is the creamiest, prettiest, warmest pink and I am cherishing it like it's spun out of gold because....well... this is it for this tube, baby!
Here are the swatches on my hand with and without flash so you can get a better idea of the color since they showed up a bit light on my face in my bright white bathroom.
Top to Bottom:
YSL Rouge Volupte 27 "Rose Paris" (Discontinued...but you can shop the other colors HERE. This is hands down one of my all time favorite lipstick formulas in just about every shade they make so you really can't go wrong.)
NYX Round Case Lipstick "Peach Bellini"
Revlon Colorstay Matte Balm "Mischievous"
NYX Butter Lipstick "Lollies" (I find that this one works best if you first use a lip primer like the e.l.f. Studio Lip Primer & Plumper or the Cargo HD Picture Perfect Lip Primer since this formula can be a bit patchy when applied.)
