My Spring Lipstick Picks Revlon Lollipop Lip Butter MAC Impassioned L'oreal Cheryls Nude Covergirl Honeyed 258 with Swatches

I've been stuck in a bloggers worst nightmare for quite a while now, none of my posts are inspiring me and my photos just look awful no matter what I do to them. It's just not motivating me to blog at all, but the sun came out a few days ago and I just knew I had to take some blog photos and get back in the game. As it is now officially spring, I thought I'd dig out the products that scream spring to me, and make a little collection of posts, so I'm starting off today with my spring lipsticks.

 Although I love my dark autumn winter lipsticks more than any others, I'm so excited to finally start wearing bright pinks and nudes again. I tend to wear more brown nudes during the darker months, so now is the time to bring out the pinky nudes. 

My first pick of the spring shades is actually the first MAC lipstick I ever owned, MAC's Impassioned. I contemplaterd about getting this lisptick for weeks, and one day I just took a risk and bought it, at first I regretted it so much as I wasn't really a bright lipstick wearer at the time, but now I wouldn't have wished to buy any other shade. It's a shade like no other really, even though I do have a Sleek dupe for it, I find myself using the MAC offering so much more.

 Next up is from the L'oreal Nudes Collection, it's in the shade Cheryl's Nude. I picked this up when they were way too overhyped and I just wasn't really impressed with it at all, but I've revisited it and it's a gorgeous everyday nude with a hint of pink. The formula isn't great and you do have to reapply quite a lot, but it fades evenly so it's not like keeping up with a noticeable colour on your lips.

Covergirl was a brand that I'd never really heard about, but when I received this lipstick in a beauty swap I was so happy to have got it. I got the shade Honeyed 258, the formulation is perfect, it stays on your lips without having to reapply too often. It is a lot more pink than Cheryl's Nude by L'Oreal, but it brings out the colour in my face and doesn't wash me out at all.

My last pick for spring is a Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in the shade Lollipop, it's a gorgeous bright shimmery pink. It's just so easy to apply this shade in a rush or on the go as it can be quite sheer so it fades nicely with no need to reapply as it stains your lips slightly. I definitely think this is a dupe of MAC's Pink Nouveau, as after buying this I started to use the MAC offering less and less and eventually sold it as I preferred the cheaper Revlon offering a lot more. Lip butters are great for spring as they're not harsh looking on the lips, they add subtle colour but also can be built up to give a bolder shade.

  3. These are all gorgeous, but the Mac one really stands out. I still don`t own any Mac lipsticks, I think I`d get addicted to them, so I`m avoiding them for the moment:)) Great post and really good pictures.

  12. I completely feel you with regards to having writers block lately - but the change in weather suddenly inspired me - I'm glad it has you too. I've only just started venturing out to lipsticks recently, but the L'Oreal Cheyrl's Nude and Covergirl Honeyed are absolutely gorgeous!

  19. I really love Lollipop it's such a pretty girly shade :) I have the l'oreal Julianne's nude and I really love it, it's been my go-to everyday lip colour for the past few months. I bought one of the new Rimmel 'oh my gloss' lip glosses in a lovely peach shade the other day which I think is going to be perfect for spring :) Looking forward to the rest of your spring posts <3
    Love Holly x
