New lipsticks for Spring

Spring is finally here!
Well, whether you believe me or not (due to lack of sunshine or hot weather where you live), in the makeup and fashion world, it is.

With that being said, it's time to revamp our look. So...out with the dark berry lipsticks and jewel toned eyes, and let's break out the pinks and corals. Yes, you heard me correct, this Spring is all about pinks (in every color) and corals.

As far as lipsticks are concerned, here are two of my FAVORITE colors right now:

MAC in Blood Red
The name is a little deceiving because it's actually not a red color, it's a fuschia. Perfect for Spring!
You will need to check your local MAC store for this as it was part of the D Squared collection from a few months back.

A swatch of the color

Sephora brand

This is a new color, so it should be in stock at your local Sephora. The lipstick shown below is not in the color, but the color you want is called Rosy Frivol. It's a sheer magenta color. I like this one because it looks like a gloss.

I am not a big coral fan, but the new Viva La Glam Lipstick by Cyndi Lauper is really pretty. I didn't purchase it because, honestly, it turned too orange on me, BUT it looked great on the Sales associate.

Remember, when trying on lipsticks, it does change on everyone. It really depends on the pigmentation your lips have. If you want to get the true color of the lipstick, add some concealer or foundation to your lips before applying the lipstick.

So go out and try new colors this Spring!
