The 5 Lip Colors I’ll Be Wearing This Spring

Top spring lip colors

Once springtime rolls around, I get this crazy bug where all I want to do is change up my lip color. Not gonna lie, things get pretty boring for my lips once the weather gets gloomy… So, now that the windows are open and the sandals are out, so are my spring lip colors.

NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Lace Detail

What’s been living on my lips lately and making appearances in too many of my Instagrams and blog posts? NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in Lace Detail. It is the best nude I have ever owned in my whole life.

Yes, that is a bold statement, but I am sticking to it.

It’s right on trend, too, with its slightly deeper shade, right between a pink and brown. And, it’s matte. You can’t forget about the matte finish.

Yes, it is drying and slightly uncomfortable…but I don’t care! It just looks so good!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes

If you’re one of those gals who just can’t stand a drying liquid lipstick, no matter how hard you try, let me show you this one. It’s the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes. It’s a matte, but it doesn’t feel like one. It’s more like a mousse-y texture, and I find it oh, so delightful.

Not to mention, it smells like delicious vanilla. It’s like my spring version of a wintery maroon shade — a little bit deep, but it still feels like it’s meant for warmer weather.

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Cruise Collection

Let’s get a little brighter, shall we? If you’re looking for something bright, but not crazy bright, check out Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Cruise Collection. I’m so in love with this lipstick’s soft formula and subtle coral color.

This guy has been on my spring go-to list for about four years now! (Don’t worry, it hasn’t been the same tube the whole time, yuck!)

If you want to experiment with corals but don’t want to completely commit to something crazy, go for this one.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick

Now, when I’m talking about committing to coral (or bright orange), I’m talking about this shade, NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick. Sorry for yet another NYX lipstick, but they really are such a good value for money. I’m sure you’ll forgive me once you try them. 🙂

I freaking love this color. There’s just something about it that makes me feel like a bad-A when I wear it, hence the sassy picture!

OCC Lip Tar in Digitalis with Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer

On days when I’m wearing a cute dress and some booties, I want something a little more feminine on my lips, and this spring, that’s going to be OCC Lip Tar in Digitalis. I love the uniqueness of this lavender/pink shade. I think strait-up lavender on the lips can look a little bit like chalk, but when it’s mixed with a light pink, it’s perfection.

These Lip Tars have a pretty glossy finish on their own, but because I have a serious problem…I had to go and make it matte. If you have the same weird addiction, you NEED to get Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer. It’s the coolest product ever (it made my March Beauty Favorites).

You just tap a little over the top of any lip product, and it instantly mattifies it. It also has a really nice, nourishing texture.

I know I am going to completely regret asking this question, because my shopping list always grows by about two pages every time, but what lipsticks are you going to be wearing constantly this spring? 🙂

Hi, beautiful! I’m Jen from Jen Leigh Beauty. Now, rather than just talking to myself about makeup, I write it down in a blog. Besides being madly in love with anything I can smear on my face (and sharing pics on Instagram), I’m more in love with my hunky husband, my sweet 2-year-old, and my fluffy fur baby. Thank goodness they put up with the madness, because I love chatting about my favorite things with people who understand the addiction.

    I’ve been loving Cabana Boy by Tarte. Also, I top that off with Dusty Lilac Anastasia lip gloss and it’s the perfect mauve nude. I’ve also been loving Faded, a Lime Crime Velvetine.

  2. sarahc says:

    I’ve been wearing one of my all time favorites MAC Cream Cup. It’s a neutral pink and it goes with everything. I think nyx Lace Detail looks great on you.

  3. sleepybird says:

    My lips are way to dry for mattes. I will be wearing my UD Sheer Revolution in Beso (my perfect MLBB) and Shame, a lovely berry shade. I also love my NYX Butter Glosses in Angel Food Cake and Tiramisu.

  4. H says:

    I’m loving MAC Flocking Fabulous lately! A great pinky coral.

  5. Karen says:

    These days I’ve been rocking Tarte’s Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss in Voltage, a peachy pink nude. It has a lipstick on one end and a gloss on the other so you get the best of both worlds, and it’s moisturizing too. Thank goodness, because for some reason having a newborn baby’s made my lips CRAZY dry (even drier than usual). Did that happen to you after you had Kai?

  6. Lauren says:

    Love the OCC lip tar on you!! Your hat tho…I need this hat! Where is it from? It’s darling on you! MAC Peach Blossom for me if spring ever arrives!

  7. denise S says:

    I love pinks, oranges and reds for spring lippies. Loral’s Volcanic lipstick and Estee Lauders Defiant Coral are a couple of my favorites. I really love the hat! Where did you get it??

  8. Kwmechelle says:

    1. Umm, hello, NYX Indie Flick! Stunning, just, stunning!
    2. Smashbox Instant Matte- I got a sample of this & fell in love with it. I was supposed to pick up a tube during the VIB sale but neglected to bc I bought something else instead. I still have my sample and plan on picking up a tube in the next two weeks. Great post!

  9. Shannon says:

    Ooh, definitely gonna check out NYX lace detail! Not to mention the insta-matte, it looks SO COOL.
    My favorite lippies at the moment are the e.l.f. Matte Lip Colors. They’re not the mattest mattes ever, but they tend to be fairly moisturizing and quite pigmented. I need to get some new colors for spring, though… of course!

    Lace Detail reminds me of Torte and Verbena from Bite!

    I love your picks! You have nice variety, and they’re all beautiful. I think I need to pick up Indie Flick next time I’m at Ulta. I don’t believe I’ve been missed out on such a gorgeous coral! I adore coral lipsticks. 🙂

  13. I am trying to wear more pinks from my stash this season, and my favorite discovery is a lip crayon from Soap and Glory.
