Top 4 pink lips for Spring/Summer!





Spring is definitely upon us and with this sudden heatwave it seems that Summer is hot on it's heels!
I think it's time for me to put away my red lips, save them for those special occasions in which only a red will suffice and bring out the pinks!

I've picked out 4 of my favourite pinks to help take you through Spring and Summer feeling bright and confident!

Left to right:

1. Clinique Chubby stick in Whoppin' Watermelon - £17.99
These will always be a classic.
I love this because on the lips it's subtle and so easy to wear, perfect for the days where you're going for a more natural look.
It's super moisturising which is especially good in the heat because its important to keep your lips protected and it's perfect to just chuck in your bag when you're out the door in a hurry and super easy to apply - just twist the product up and slap it on with no worries of getting it all over your face!
It would be a good one to use if you've forgotten to take care of your lips in the sun and they're a bit dry and cracked, too!

2. Avon Ultra Bold Lipstick in Starburst Pink - £7.50

I wrote a post a while ago about breaking the stigma attached to Avon products and this is just another reason as to why Avon is literally rocking things in the make-up world!
I was sent this by a fellow blogger a while ago and fell in love with it and wore it non-stop throughout the summer last year.
It's a very opaque, bubblegum or as the name would suggest, Starburst pink with a satin finish on the lips.
The colour you see in the bullet is exactly what you get on the lips with this one!
It has an SPF of 15 so again, will protect your lips from the sun a little and this has a perfect sweet, fruity summer scent and lasts for ages on the lips due to the intense pigmentation.
It looks great on pale skin but I think it would look amazing with a tan, too.

3. Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch - £2.99

Another classic, here.
This is another easy to wear, more moisturising one like the Chubby Stick.
It's a very baby pink with a fruity scent.
The colour pay-off isn't as intense which makes it great again to just throw in your handbag and top up when and if you need to.
Super balmy and moisturising so even though the colour doesn't last too long on my lips the feeling that my lips are being hydrated sticks around for hours!

4. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Hot Plum - £6.99

Last but not least is one of my favourite lipsticks of all time.
Maybelline really brought it with the Color Sensational Vivids collection and Hot Plum is the perfect bright summer pink!
The finish is beautiful; it dries to a silky matte finish but there's still some movement there and it doesn't feel drying or uncomfortable at all.
The colour is so intense and lasts a good few hours before needing to be topped up. When it does wear off, there's no nasty line of colour around the lips either, which I can't stand.
Best of all is that it's very blue toned which does wonders for making your teeth look whiter!


These are the pinks I'll be rocking this Spring/Summer?
