Go forth and be bright: Spring lip colours

{Lip trio — always in my bag}

My purse is overflowing with make-up and I’m always having to do a “spring clean” before the week starts. If I miss the weekly clean, makeup is falling out of my purse in public places. I soon decided to pick my top three colours depending on the season/mood I’m in, and only carry those. These are my top three… for the next few weeks, at least.

{Swatches of the shades}

All three are some form of a pink or peach tone. The line up: YSL Rouge Volupte in “Rose Paris” #27, Lancome L’absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rose Essencea and finally, the ever so famous “Vegas Volt” by MAC.


Here is the YSL #27, “Rose Paris” on. I love how the there’s no missing it. It’s a great bright pink for this season on days when I’m feeling a little loud. I found that the YSL is a tad on the blue-tone side which at first, put me off. But I thought this one would be great for summer vacations and it’s really growing on me. Probably the brightest lipstick I own.

“Rose Essencea” by Lancome was a limited edition lipstick that I found at a recent make-up sale. At first I thought this would be too pale but I absolutely adore this shade and find that it’s so wearable. I’ve been going through the tube quickly, I wish I’d grabbed a couple more. You can view similar shades in this creamy texture at Lancome.ca


“Vegas Volt” is such a popular shade for the summer months. This is part of the “Amplified” line so the colour comes on strong but it doesn’t dry the lips. This particular lipstick is always in my makeup collection because I feel like it really brightens my look no matter how fatigued my skin is.
