Now that Spring is officially here, we can all start getting ready for summer. For me, Spring gives me a chance to inject some softer tones back into my make up looks. In Autumn/Winter i prefer dark and bold lipsticks whereas Spring i like to go for a subtle or nude lip. This post is all about my top 5 most reached for lipsticks at this time for Spring.

If you couldn't tell from the photo, i really like pink tones around this time of year. My most reached for Lipgloss ever is the NYX Megashine Lipgloss in 'Beautiful' which is as the name suggests, beautiful. It's a gorgeous light pink with golden shimmer. The formula is lovely and thick but isn't overly sticky. Another great NYX lip product is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Tokyo' which is a very light pink with a matte finish. This lasts for hours on end - and smells like cupcakes.

Another great matte lip product is the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in 'Elusive' which I'd been wearing a lot in the last couple of weeks. It's a slightly darker colour than the rest - a dusty pink. It lasts well and compliments pretty much any look. I love lip lacquers for their staying power and the Make Up Revolution Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer in 'More Than I could give' is no exception. It's a pure nude shade. The formula is good - staying power is good without any awful stickiness. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Antwerp' is definitely the brightest out of the lot, a bright coral pink.
