The ducks have arrived back to our pool, and in my house that means one thing…spring is in the air! The weather has been glorious, the sun is out longer and it seems like an appropriate time to talk about some of my favourite lip shades for the season.

To be honest, this winter hasn’t actually felt that long. Mother nature took it pretty easy on us here in Canada…or perhaps it seemed easier for me working from home and not having to clear off my car every morning. I won’t rub it in too much, but my point is that spring’s arrival seems to have creeped up much faster than previous years. I’m somewhat sad that there wasn’t more snow, but I also can’t wait to chuck on some sandals and wear brighter colours…including these five lipsticks:
MAC has some pretty iconic lipsticks and I would say this is an underdog of the more popular options. It’s a bright fuchsia with blue undertones, but it also has a berry hue, making it the perfect transition colour from fall to spring.
I’ve had this lipstick for a couple of years now, but after wearing it the other day and receiving tons of compliments, I realized how much I truly love it! It’s a hot pink, but not super neon and adds a little brightness to any outfit on rainy spring days. It’s a hybrid of a balm and stain so it feels really comfortable and lasts a long time on the lips.
A girl’s got to have a good neutral, right? To be honest, this is a favourite colour all year round! I think this is my most used lipstick ever! Unlike the others in this post, this one’s matte, but the formula is still super hydrating and does not dry out my lips.
I can’t wait to see what this colour looks like with a tan! It’s a sheer salmon pink shade with a glossy finish that’s bright but not too bright. I think corals are classic for spring and Love Me is a more muted option I tend to gravitate to the most.
I love orange lipsticks!! However, I try to ease into bold colours during spring. This particular shade is lighter and leans a little more coral, which compliments my pale skin tone better. Once I’ve seen a little more sun I will probably opt for a brighter hue, but until then, this is my go-to!
For the most part I’ve moved away from the matte trend lately and I’m leaning towards moisturizing lipsticks for a healthier, more lively look. It is spring after all – the birds are signing, flowers are blooming and everything is waking up.
