With all this cold weather that apparently doesn’t want to go away, I’ve been thinking about ways to add some brightness into my life. A few days ago I posted about some fun nail polishes for spring, and then when I was thinking of what other beauty products could help me think of sunnier times, so naturally I thought of lip products!
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade Elusive
I’ve only used this a few times, but I really like it. It’s a light pink shade that looks very pretty on the lips. I don’t use it much now because since it is a matte formula, it dries out my lips a bit during winter, but I’m sure I’ll use it much more in spring and summer. It’s also pretty long-lasting and stains the lips a bit, which is nice.
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in the shade Vivacious
I love this! The shade is like a dark pink with light purple undertones in it, and it really adds nice dimension to the lips. It’s just a very unique color, and it’s very pretty. The formula is nice and creamy, but it can come off pretty easily, so just be aware of that. It also doesn’t have as much staying power as the matte balm above.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade Turn On
This is such a creamy, beautiful lipstick. They come in a wide variety of shades, but I really liked this one because it is a beautiful dark pink color with some nice shine to it. Also, the packaging is nice and sleek. I got this as a Christmas gift, butit fell to the bottom of my makeup bag and I recently rediscovered it. Definitely my favorite lipstick right now!
Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color in the shade Pink Rave
This lip product is intense indeed! There were four shades in this line, but this is the one that stood out to me the most as one I would use most often. It’s a bright, pigmented pink color that definitely is on trend for spring.
Buxom Full-Bodied Lipstick in the shade Swinger
I normally don’t like purple lipsticks because I feel like they wouldn’t look good on me, but this is an exception. It looks purple in the tube, but when you put it on, it has some pink overtones that come out as well. It can be a bit drying after a few hours, but the formula is great and very pigmented.
