There is something cheerful about rosy lips in the spring. Anything from a wash of color to a bold pink, paired with a flirty dress and you are all set. My favorites to achieve the look are:
Korres Lip Butter in Quince (very sheer)
This hydrating balm jut provides a wash of color, but it is makes your lips shiny and healthy. The butters are made with natural oils and extracts. Shea butter and rice wax provide hydration.
Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick (sheer)
This just has slightly more color to it and also is super hydrating. If you don’t like pot format of the Korres, this is a great alternative. It gives a rose stain with literally zero dryness.
Cle de Peau Beaute Enriched Lip Luminizer in 213 (slightly sheer)
This is silky, slippery skin care for your lips. The color literally melts on. It is still fairly sheer but you are getting a good wash of color. I love how healthy this lush balm makes my lips feel. It is sold as a holder and refill. The swatch is from Nordstrom.
NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (opaque)
I never knew a pencil could be so buttery and soft. This literally translates into a gloss, but packs a punch of color. This is for those who want a true, hot pink rose on their lips. It still is moisturizing with ingredients like vitamin E, hyaluronic spheres, and phytosterol esthers.
As a side note, check out my interview on Priscilla Francine Makeup! So excited to be featured by this artist based in my former “home city”, San Francisco.
