Spring Lips: Orange and Coral Edition


So I know it's been a bit, I took a week off for myself just to chill. Running the blog and working can sometimes get a little bit much to keep up with! But I'm back and, despite what the weather is trying to tell me, I am breaking into the spring makeup. It may be stormy, the rain may be lashing down and it may be cold as frig, but I will have my bright lipsticks! So I have rescued my poor colourful lipsticks from their neglected place at the back of the drawers. YOU'RE FREEEEE! 

This edition will cover some of my favourite orange and coral bright lipsticks so prepare yourself for pictures of beautiful lipsticks!

Orange can be a fairly hard colour to work with so I have a range of sheerer colours, up to the more vivid colours but if you're fearless, go for it! Topshop has some really gorgeous vivid, bright oranges in their makeup range and they are beautiful. 

We'll start with the lipsticks first:

(In order of the swatches left to right)
Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Heartbreaker- £4.99
Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Bliss (I think, curse my need to peel all the labels off everything!)- £1.00 (srsly)
Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Divine (I think.) -£1.00
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival Spirit- £7.99
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Coral Tonic- £6.99
Maybelline Vivid Colour Sensational Lipstick in Shocking Coral- £6.99

The highstreet has a really great range of lovely bright lipsticks in time for the Spring/Summer season. Maybelline in particular always has some fabulously bright colours. Their Vivid Sensational range is one of my absolute favourites! If you want to go for one to start you off with the bright colours, the Revlon lipstick is a lovely sheer wash of colour that you can build up when you're feeling a bit braver.

To the rest!

(Again, in order of the swatches left to right)
Barry M Loudmouth Lipgloss in Show Off- £3.99
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch-£7.99
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Temper- £16.50 (purchased in sale for £5.00 because I am not P.Diddy and I'm not paying 16.50 for a lipgloss, are you insane?!)(I mean, I totally would if I didn't have to pay rent as well.)
Barry M Gelly Lips in Sigma Coral- £4.99
Maybelline Colour Sensational Elixir Lipgloss in Mandarin Rapture- £6.99
Revlon Colourstay Lip Stain in Cannes Crush- £7.99

Barry M have a really lovely range of bright lip colours out at the minute and I am particularly in love with the Gelly Lips range. I'll pop at in-depth review up soon, but spoiler alert! they are kind of awesome. Again, if you're looking to brighten up your lip wardrobe, but don't want to go too crazy with colour, the Bourjois Colour Boost crayon gives a really lovely wash of colour with out being too intense.

There you have it! Some of my current favourites for Spring and Summer. It may look like Winter outside, but my face WILL look like it's ready for a day at the beach! I hope this is helpful and I'd love to know any of your favourite bright lip colours. I'll pop up the next instalment of this next week, so if orange isn't your thing, you can look forward to a pink/purple edition! 

I'll leave it there for tonight, don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Like my Facebook page to keep up with blog posts and all sorts of shenanigans! (By shenanigans, I mean selfies. And makeup pictures.) Also, let me know what you're favourite bright lipstick is, I'm always on the hunt for more! I hope you're all well and I will chat to you soon.

Be happy and be kind,
