The Edit | Spring Lips

Since it is well and truly Spring now I thought it was about time I shared some of my favourite lip products I will be reaching for. When I was putting this list together I realised there is a lot of Revlon products, clearly I have a thing for them at the moment.
I've been a big fan crayon style lip products for a while and I have two from Revlon that are perfect for this time of year. First the Matte Balm in Unapologetic, a bright pink colour, perfect for adding that put together yet fun feel to a simple makeup look. The other being the Lacquer Balm in Vivacious, a glossy finish and more of a deeper yet still bright pink. Both colours really brighten up the complex which is perfect for this time of year.

I feel like I have a Revlon Lip Butter for every season and occasion at this point. I love the fact that they are well pigmented whilst feeling moisturising and like a lip balm when applied. Sorbet is another fairly bright pink but can be applied sheer or more full on. The other shade Juicy Papaya is a sheer peachy pink, this lives in my handbag as a go to for popping on without a mirror to add a bit of colour to the lips. 

Similar to Juicy Papaya the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Lovers Coral is a sheer peachy pink. It is a little more pigmented and looks so lovely on. The other lipstick is from Topshop in the colour Macaroon as a slight matte finish to it. It is a pink shade with a hint of coral to it, it looks fairly natural on the lips whilst having a bit of brightness to it. 

I'm slowly getting into liquid lipsticks now and these two are definitely my favourites. The first is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo! This applies like a pigmented gloss but has a matte finish without being drying. This shade is a lovely, deep bright pink and lasts so long on the lips without smudging or bleeding. The other; the L'oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Rose Symphony, has a glossy finish yet feels really nice on the lips. Apparently these are made from oils so feel nourishing on the lips. This shade is the perfect everyday pink which would suit so many people.
L-R, Unapologetic, Vivacious, Sorbet, Juicy Papaya, Lovers Coral, Macaroon, Ole Flamingo!, Rose Symphony.

For Spring i'm clearly having a thing for pinks and corals. Most of these I can see myself loving just as much in Summer. What are your favourite Spring lip products?
