Who doesn’t love this time of year? The brighter days, the warmer weather… and a whole load of new make-up to feast our eyes on! The colour palette for Spring and Summer suits my skintone more than the vampy shades of A/W, so as I spring-clean my wardrobe, I also like to refresh my vanity case too!
Lipsticks are definitely one of the first cosmetic products I change throughout the season, as my outfits get lighter, so does my lipstick choice. I’ve spotted a few new lipsticks launching this Spring, five to be exact! Here’s what to look out for next time you’re at the beauty counters!
Burberry Kisses Lipstick, £25
Just the packaging design alone makes me swoon over this lipstick, it’s almost too pretty to use! There are 28 shades in the Burberry Kisses Lipstick
range to choose from, each with the signature tartan pattern branded all over. I particularly love the debossed tartan on the bullet, it’s a nice touch. It’s a classy little lipstick though, with a moisturising, sheer but build-able finish. Burberry Kisses launched yesterday, I believe! It is available to buy now
Clarins Garden Escape Lip Balm, £18
I really like tinted lip balms that packs just the right amount of pigment. At the moment, I’ve been loving the Benefit Tinted Balms
and I am wondering if the Clarins Garden Escape Lip Balms
are just as good. Available in just 6 glossy shades, all of which look PERFECT for Spring, the Garden Escape Lip Balms contain extracts of wild mango, shea butter and vitamin E to moisturises, plumps, hydrate and illuminates. I think my favourite shade is the Coral!
Lancôme Shine Lover Vibrant Shine Lipstick
Recently, I have been impressed with Lancôme’s lip products, I’m a huge fan of their Rouge In Love line because the formula is so moisturising. With these Shine Lover Lipsticks containing hyaluronic acid and rose de muscat oil, I have no doubt that these will be just as conditioning! Lancôme describes this range of having “an ease of a lip balm, the attitude of a lipstick”. I don’t think this is released yet, but keep your eyes peeled for it at the Lancôme beauty counter! Prices will be around the £22 mark.
Clinique Pop Colour Lipstick + Primer, £16
I’ve seen blanket coverage of this in the past few days, and even though the Clinique Pop Colour Lipstick & Primer hasn’t even launched yet, I am definitely falling for the hype already (that will be the powers of persuasion from my favourite beauty bloggers!). They look really rich in colour and provide a full coverage, but it’s the built in primer that I’m intrigued by. I think this is unique to Clinique, but the built in primer is supposed to extend the wear of the lipstick for a whopping 8 hours! I’m skeptical, but we’ll soon see what it is really like when it launches on 17th April.
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick, £15.50
I don’t own anything from Urban Decay (not even the naked palettes – shocking!) but it’s one of those brands that pops up on beauty blogs ALL THE TIME. With it being quite a fairly good price – or at least the cheapest out of this bunch – I think I’m going to bite the bullet and go for one of their Sheer Revolution Lipsticks
. I quite like the look of shades Anarchy (fuchsia) or Rapture (rose). It will be my first Urban Decay product, so I hope it’s not going to disappoint! They are described as sheer, buttery, smooth and creamy with a blend of jojoba, shea butter, olive and babassu oil (which I read as ‘badass oil’ at first), vitamin C and E. They’re available now at Debenhams
and House of Fraser
Do any of these tempt you? Which beauty launch are you looking forward to this Spring?
