Favourite Daytime Spring Lip Colours

I have so many lipsticks yet tend to stick to a select few, I am not the only one right? With Spring arriving, I've decided that its time to drop the dark berry lips and opt for lovely pinks and nudes. Here are my favourite daytime picks, with most being ones that I reach for year after year which shows that I truly love them!



1. MAC's Pink Plaid has to be one of my all time favourites from the brand. This could be down to the matte formula which I absolutely love as it lasts for so long. The shade is a gorgeous cool toned pink which in itself screams spring/summer. In one swipe it is such an opaque colour which I just think is amazing in a lipstick. However I wore this heaps through out the winter too, its just a great all round colour! The only down side is that it is a little bit drying but that is what I expect from a matte formula now... nothing a bit of exfoliating and applying lip balm cannot fix!

2. Next is a lipstick that I have purchased time and time again, this being MAC's Snob. This is the perfect 'barbie pink' in my opinion and has a slight lilac undertone although this is not coming off in the photos. The shade has a satin finish which dries quite matte but is not drying. Again this one goes perfect with so many makeup looks, I also think it compliments my pale skin rather well. I am talking really really pale...

3. This shade is slightly brighter for the daytime but still it can definitely be worn. MAC's Up the Amp is a stunning lavender pink which is an amplified creme and applies so smoothly. During the day I tend to apply this with a light hand and dab it with my finger to lighten it up a bit and for nights out just apply it as usual. I have never actually owned a lipstick similar to this shade before but I am so glad I bought this on a whim!

4.  Now I only bought my Maybelline Colour Drama in Nude Perfection a few months a go and I am in love! It really has not been off my lips recently, the product is so pigmented and lasts for hours. I actually bought it in my desperate attempt to get the Kylie Jenner lip colour and it definitely works for that, especially paired with NYX's liner in Nude Beige. I honestly recommend this combination so much if you are looking for the perfect nude combination!





What are your go to lipsticks in spring?
