Top 5: Springtime Lipsticks

Someone mentioned on my giveaway post that they missed my ‘Top 5’ series where I used to pick 5 things that I was liking in the shops at that time, I thought I’d review the series and do some more ‘Top 5’ posts – this time concentrating on some of my favourite products.
To get the ball rolling we’ve got my Top 5 Springtime lipsticks:
1|L’Occitane Pivoine Delicate Lipstick in the shade 02 (Post here)
This is the most natural shade in my Top 5 and it’s included as it’s a perfect ‘everyday’ shade, you don’t have to think about wearing this lipstick at all and it’s perfect to mute out the lips when you’re wearing a more defined eye. The formula is brilliant, it leaves the lips with a nice sheen but isn’t sticky at all.
2|17 Lasting Fix Lipstick in the shade Pink Power
This is my all-time favourite bright pink lipstick. I have been wearing it for about four years now and whenever the sun get’s his hat out of hibernation you will find this upon my lips. It’s the perfect shade of fuchsia for both daytime and nights out (particularly lovely with a silver smoky eye). The formula is lovely too, it’s a semi-matte finish that sticks around on the lips for hours!
3|MAC Lipstick in the shade Toxic Tale (LE)
I’m afraid that this shade was limited edition (Venomous Villains) but if you can get your hands on it you will not regret it. It’s the perfect pink-toned coral lipstick and last summer this was constantly on my face, it’s quite bright but I wore it in the daytime for work with a neutral eye with no funny looks from my colleagues/the students. It’s a satin formula so lasts quite a long time without wearing too noticeably but can be drying if your lips aren’t in tip-top condition.
4|MAC Lipstick in the shade Lady Danger
Orange-toned red. In summer I prefer my red lipsticks to be more warm-toned as I prefer warm-toned blushers too. This lipstick is a matte formula and sticks around for ages on the lips, the orange tone to it does tend to make your teeth look a little yellow though but if you can work with that this lipstick is a winner.
5|Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Kiss Me Coral
This lipstick is definitely an orange-based coral, I’d even be tempted to say that there is hardly any red in it at all. Compared to Lady Danger and Toxic Tale it appears straight up orange and for that I love it. Orange is the colour of the spring/summer this year and I imagine that this lipstick will look amazing with a tan. The formula is lovely, it has a sheeny finish but is incredibly opaque and lasts a decent enough time on the lips too.
What are your favourite lipsticks for Spring?
Have you tried any of the lipsticks that I have mentioned?


  1. I really like the look of the L’Occitane lipstick, the packaging along is really pretty and it's a nice natural looking shade too.

  2. Lovely shades you've chosen :) xx


  3. Great shades you chosen. I need to try out 17 lipsticks. x

  4. The L’Occitane has the most exquisite packaging. Love Revlon lippies, they're fantastic quality and they make some gorgeous shades :)
