Although the early spring rain and windy weather may leave us in the mood for grunge inspired dark shades, the calendar clearly states that spring is here. As we prepare to welcome the season, a kissable and softly tinted mouth is de rigueur for Spring 2017. Whether you’re donning pastel brights or strutting the sidewalks in denim, a gloss, balm or tint can elevate your beauty look and flatter your outfit of the day. While the cold, harsh winter may have left many of us with dry and dull lips, these refreshing, youthful and vivid shades just may bring your lips back to life, and also transform your sullen pout into a brilliant grin. We’ve curated three new lip colour choices to add to your beauty arsenal this spring.
Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss in Super Scarlet, $17: From Valentino to Dolce & Gabbana, matte crimsons and reds were a popular look on the spring runways. Reds, while quite bold, are the perfect statement lip for the spring. This particular choice from Clinique features a glossy shade, which can easily bring your minimalist beauty to the next level or offer you a glamorous effect for a night out.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-in-Balm in Seduce Me Pink, $34: As the flowers start to bloom, pastel shades are making their way into beauty displays and onto our lips. Pinks are fresh and feminine. Pastel pinks can be worn as an everyday shade and can easily be transitioned for after-work drinks with a metallic gloss. This one from Yves Saint Laurent is a hybrid between a tint and a balm, which claims to nourish your lips and also add a pop of colour.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche in Eggplant, $30: While darker shades are often reserved for fall and winter, eggplant is one shade that can also be worn in spring. This inviting violet hue can suit beauty lovers with richer, deeper complexions who find berry-toned shades too bright. Since it’s more a muted shade, it is neutral enough for a simple eye look, but also vampy enough for the evening hours.
