While I was writing this post, I listened to Better With You by Jesse McCartney. Try it ! 

I just wanted to show you guys some lipsticks I've been wearing and loving a lot lately and since it's springtime now, let's get colorful around here ! I'm not a girl who wears a lot of nude lip colors because I feel naked and blaaah when I wear a color that looks like my lips - what's the use ?
Since I've got short hair, I can wear almost any color and I know it will suit me - that's one of the reasons I don't want to make my hair grow long again ! Any color, yes, but those that suit me the best are really bright pinks and oranges so that's what I'm using most these days. I'm going to tell you a little bit about every one of the lipsticks I'm showing you in the order of the swatches.

Kiko Milano | Smart Fusion Lipsticks in 422 & 427

Up until one or two months ago, I didn't own any Smart Fusion Lipstick from Kiko - they're the lipsticks from the basic range that cost €3.95 each. The first one I got is number 430, a beautiful berry lipstick that's super pigmented. I'm a real sucker for the Kiko Smart Fusion Lip Pencils (€2.50 each) and I found out not long ago that the lipsticks and lip pencils from this range actually match ! Two of my favorite shades are #422 (described as a crimson red, more of a warm-toned reddish pink) and #427 (described as a lively pink, more of a cool-toned purplish pink). Both look really good on my pale skin (I'm a M.A.C. NC20) and since I'm loving glossier, lacquered lipsticks more and more these days, these do the job perfectly. The second swatch picture shows both lipsticks on the matching lipliners (#522 and #527), which is how I wear them - I never wear the lipsticks without lipliner because I want the color to be full and creamy and punchy.

Lottie London | #Holo Lip Gloss in Shade

I'm so in love with that lip gloss. I haven't actually worn it that much but I'm planning to wear it more. I've got a Fenty Beauty lipgloss from the Summer Nights trio called Snake Skin that looks like that but this baby reminds me of the amazing week I spent last year in London doing photoshoots - I went in the Oxford Street Superdrug store and found this. I was planning on doing a weird, futuristic photoshoot with it and it never happened but I've found I can wear this on a dark base to make the color shift more visible or on its own for a more natural look. It cost me £5.95 which is super duper affordable and there are 4 shades so as I'm going to the London IMATS in May, I'm SO checking out the other shades !

Sephora | Cream Lip Stain in shade 90

I got this liquid matte lipstick as a Christmas present from one of my very best friends when I was looking for a dupe of M.A.C.'s Tailored to Tease and I'm in love with it. It's just a perfect bright pink, not too bright, not too cool, not too anything and I love it in the Cream Lip Stain formula which I've always found super velvety and comfortable. I'm thinking of buying more of Sephora's shades, by the way - some of the brightest, of course ! I've come to have quite the number of Cream Lip Stains so I'm thinking of posting about them soon !

M.A.C. Cosmetics | Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Quite the Standout

This is the very last M.A.C. lipstick I got for myself, when I was in my orange lipstick phase. It's a super bright sunny orange, slightly red-toned and as pigmented as pigmented gets. I love how I can wear this with just bronzer and mascara and my eyebrows done and it does the whole look ! I used to be really afraid of orange lipsticks and Quite the Standout just satisfied my orange craving.

M.A.C. Cosmetics | Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Tailored to Tease

This has got to be my favorite M.A.C. lipstick ever. Whenever I wear this, I feel hot, sexy and I know the color brightens up my face as soon as the applicator touches my lips. Tailored to Tease is a kind of cool-toned fuchsia that makes both my skin look brighter and my teeth look white and I look sooo feminine with it ! I've got one and as soon as it's finished, I'm going back for a new one ! At M.A.C. we are used to use our Retro Matte Liquid lipsticks as primers for colorful or dark smoky eye looks and that's what I've done not a long time ago on a photoshoot with Quite the Standout and the orange shade from Juvia's Tribe palette - it does the job perfectly. 


Have you tried any of these lipsticks or any from the same range ? What are your go-to lipsticks for springtime ? x
