Lips: Spring Shades and Sara Happ Giveaway

Nudes and sophisticated brights are on tap for your lips for Spring!

I’m a big fan of a nude lip for both daytime casual and done up evenings. Sara Happ has not one, but two of my nudey favorites in beige and pinkTom Ford’s Ultra Shine Gloss in Naked is another sure fire shot at sexy spring lips. If you are looking for something to last you for the long haul, then try Too Faced’s Melted Liquefied Long Wear in Melted NudeMarc Jacobs’ New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel in a color called Moody Margot is definitely worth a try. If a matte attack is what you are looking for, then I would definitely rock the Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere.

Now for those sophisticated brights…

Are you ready ladies? Let’s start with Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Melodieuse #136. Or how about Nars’ Audacious lipstick with bold coverage and ultra soft texture in Fanny. Smashbox’s Be Legendary lipstick in Fuchsia Flash Matte will leave your lips saturated in color.  Looking for some long wear love?  Then try Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria. For my gloss girls, let’s start with YSL’s Gloss Volupte’ in Corail Lingot with just a touch of golden shimmer. Nars never lets me down with their Velvet Gloss lip pencil.  The color I’m geeking for this Spring is Raspberry Sorbet.
