THE SPRING LIP EDIT

image

Spring is upon us and lately, I’ve been gearing towards a more fresh-faced makeup look. knowing that I will be doing more colourful looks this spring/summer, I thought I’d share my current go-to makeup look + my favourite lip colour at the moment.


 Keeping within the ‘fresh face’ theme, for me, that is clean looking skin + a subtle/bright coloured lipstick. For example, switching from a deep red lip colour to a nude lip makes the biggest difference in anyone’s look with minimal effort. With that being said I’ve rediscovered a lip item that I’ve had in my drawer and haven’t put it down since.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick “07 Nude-ist”

 The formula of Rouge Edition is the reason why I think this is perfect for spring: It does not dry matte, but once you apply – gives a nourishing, matte finish. A velvet finish if you will.

For me, sometimes I may feel like I don’t want the heaviness of a traditional liquid lipstick, however, I still want a matte-looking lipstick. This lipstick is right in between.


 Pigmentation: This is another reason why I love it. Though it may not be to someone else’s ideal, I’d say it is sheer to buildable. Once you apply, it’ll give a sheer amount coverage but since the texture is very creamy, this allows you to add more coverage to your desire without build up.

The shade I have is “07 Nude-ist”. This one, in particular, is super versatile and through my eyes, a universal colour – bright, yet subtle.

Depending on what look I’m going for, I like to use a lip liner here and there but when I’m in a rush I simply run this across the centre of my lips and gently blend in with my fingers.

 All in all: This has become a lipstick I always have to carry in my makeup bag. Whether it’s when I’m travelling or if I need a something on the lips but don’t know which lipstick to go for. This is a must have.

THE PERFECT RED LIP

I’ve never really been the type of girl to wear red lipstick as I feel many red lipsticks out on the market have different undertones, so finding the right shade can be tricky. It’s also important to note that the ‘Red Lip’ is known to be worn as a bold, statement Lip colour to vamp up almost any makeup look however it’s different for all skin tones.

I thought I could never pull it off until I came across one lipstick that came in a ‘liquid’ lipstick form, the shade was not like most I’ve seen where the undertone is either blue or slightly orange. This shade suited everyone! On top of that, I hadn’t come across any negative reviews on this particular product.

It’s from the makeup brand, Coloured Raine and the lip colour is in the name ‘Cherry Blossom. It’s perfect, I absolutely love it and I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good, red lipstick.

As well as Their high-demand liquid lipsticks, Coloured Raine also stock lip glosses as well as eyeshadows (which I haven’t tried yet). They’re based in America therefore initially I didn’t really bother to look any further, up until one morning I noticed that Beauty Bay (a UK online beauty department store) were now including Coloured Raine.

I was super excited when I made my purchase and thrilled when I received the item. Here are three key things I absolutely love about this product:

  • The Smooth application
  • The highly pigmented colour payoff
  • The Non-drying formula on the lips

With that being said I will be trying out more shades in the near future!

The Coloured Raine liquid lipstick in Cherry Blossom retails for £15 on Beauty Bay (where I purchased mine).
