I realise Winter has literally only just begun, but the end of Christmas usually results in me looking forward to Spring. The past week or so has seen me ditch the deep reds, fuschia pinks and plums in favour for a few lighter shades. Here's what I'll be reaching for the next few months..

Pinks: Pinks are perfect for an everyday natural colour, and Revlon Kissable Balm stain in Honey is my go to 'my lips but better' shade. Korres Pomegranate lip butter is very close too, and gives a lovely pink sheen of colour as well as being moisturising. For a bit of a brighter look #16 of the Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish gives a lovely pop of colour without being too barbie pink.

Peach's: Avon's Peach Peck is my most reached for peach; some of them are a little too bright and wash me out, but this one is perfect for my skintone. With a 60s eye look this one is too good. Topshop's Ohh La La is another pretty one, but possibly a little too bright for me and something I save for when I have a slight tan, if that ever happens! And of course, I can't not mention MAC's Vegas Volt which was possibly my most reached for lipstick last Summer, a slightly darker peachy coral.

Red's: I still wear red's but it's usually slightly sheerer or brighter shades. First up is the Revlon lip butter in Wild Watermelon, which is a lovely sheer pinky red shade. No7 Gay Geranium is in my top five lipsticks of all time, such a lovely colour of orange red with a great formula. I really fell in love with the L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash's last year too, and they're so easy and simple for when the weather gets a little warmer. The shade Princess is the perfect coral.

Are you planning ahead for Spring?

  2. So many beautiful sheer shades, I'm getting very excited about trying the new looks :o). Xx

  4. I'm going to take note of all your peach recommendations because I'm yet to find a peach lip colour that suits me! x

  5. I adore your line up of lip colours for the spring! I was debating to get the Revlon kissable balm stain in honey and I think you may have just convinced me to get it. Love you blog so much so that you have a new follower:) I'm new here so please do check out mine:) ♥

  6. Have my eye on that topshop gem as my first venture into peach
    My loreal glamshine stain splash came out so much darker on my lips than I expected, do you find that?

  7. I like Vegas Volt the most :D But the Topshop one is pretty, too :)

  8. These are some lovely colours! I must try and come out of my comfort zone of wearing bright red all the time :)

  9. it is always so hard to choose a right one :)


  10. Out of pretty much all of my lip products the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey is probably my most worn, it is perfect.

    I really like this picture by the way :)
