Bright, Affordable, Wearable, and Beautiful Spring Lipsticks

The other day when I was searching through my lipstick collection I realized most of my colors were nude pinks… yeah not very springy at all.  So, of course I did what anyone with an addiction to makeup would do, went to the nearest drugstore (in this case CVS), and stocked up on some fun spring lipsticks!  I bought four Lipsticks; all bright, affordable, wearable, and beautiful!  This post is going to be a show and tell for all these lovely lipsticks, hope you enjoy!

The Colors 
(Swatches in order from Top to Bottom)
(Lipstick pictures starting at top left going Clockwise)

Maybelline Color Sensational Shade 525 Peachy Scene~ A vibrant coral shade more towards the red side of the spectrum, that glides on easily with a bit of shine

L'oreal Color Riche Shade 135 Ballerina Shoes~ A bright baby pink shade with a rich formula and tons of shine

Revlon Super Lustrous Shade 120 Apricot Fantasy~ A pale peachy orange shade with a smooth application and a bit of shine 

L'oreal Color Riche Shade 140 Mauved~ A brighter than classic rosey toned mauve shade, with a rich formula and tons of shine



Peachy Scene

This is the perfect vibrant coral lipstick from Maybelline, very nice for spring and summer when you want that pop of color!  The price is right, only $7.49 and it has a very nice color payoff for such a bright shade.  The packaging is not my favorite based purely on looks, but it is fully functional and I haven't had any problems with it. For this lipstick especially, it's what's inside that counts!

Ballerina Shoes 

This lipstick from L'oreal is my favorite of the bunch. Light pinks are my favorite lip shades to wear, and this color gives me a beautiful Barbie doll lip effect!  I love the quality of L'oreal lipsticks, very rich and smooth.  Also, the rose gold packaging is to die for; so beautiful and the the cap snaps right in place without budging.  At $8.95  you will defiantly get your money's worth with this lipstick!

Apricot Fantasy 

This Revlon peachy orange lipstick adds a fun girly element to any makeup look!  I've been seeing the orange lip trend for this spring quiet a bit so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and give it a try!  The pale undertones and smooth finish makes orange lips easy to pull off  for an everyday look, and at $7.99 who could resist?  The only downside to this lipstick is the packaging; bland and boring, and I have been having issues with the cap sliding off in my purse, pretty annoying.  But, other than that this lipstick is a nice color for people experimenting with orange lips! 


This is NOT just a plain, classic, mauve lipstick from L'oreal, but one that is bright, with a rosy shine, a must have in your spring lip collection.  Such a pretty rosy color with the amazing, rich, smooth, formula and beautiful packaging of L'oreal.  When creating girly, glowing, makeup looks I will definitely reach for this shade and at $8.95 it's just perfect! 

I hope this post gave you some inspiration on how to stock up for the spring with bright, affordable, wearable, and beautiful lipsticks!  I had a lot of fun choosing these colors and showing them to you!  The link to my favorite shade is in Chloe's These are a Few of my Favorite Things if you want to check that out. (By the way NOTHING in this post is sponsored).  Keep an eye out for my next post, it's going to include a giveaway! Until next time, have a great day!
