Pastel Lipsticks for Spring

Pastel coloured lipstick can go one of two ways: They are either way so light that you look a little bit like a corpse or you look extra tanned and bronzed like a goddess. Since I’ve recently discovered a new fave pastel pink, I thought I would share a few that I love that make me feel pretty awesome. Added bonus, they are cruelty-free!

From lightest to darkest, we have

Essense Lipstick in Get The Look which is a rather sheer but very cool toned pastel pink. This looks best over a darker lip liner as a highlighted pop of colour.

Cargo Cosmetics lipgloss in Anguilla which is the truest baby pastel pink of the group but it is a seriously beautiful colour for spring/summer.

Marcelle Rouge Xpression lipstick in French Rose** is one I talked about pretty recently. This is a slightly frosty blue toned pink that again looks good for a little pop of colour with a slightly more neutral lip liner.

Essence Liquid Lipstick in Colour Party is one of my newest favourites. This is a colour you can wear on its own that is still very light and bright. It isn’t matte – in fact none of these are – so you also get a lovely glossy look for Summer.

NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel is a bit more peachy and sheer, but again gives you a beautiful pinky gloss for this season.

Essense Lipstick in Wear Berries! is more of a pastel purple shade. Since it is quite sheer but dark, it’s a little more subtle then the others but still lovely.

This one is a bit of a stretch but I wanted to include it in here as another option. Too Faced Melted Fig is a very unique kind of colour. Though it is a deep purple colour, it is a similar concept as Essense Wear Berries. It is a nice wash of colour that mixes very well with any of the lighter shades I mentioned earlier. 

Through there are no mattes to be found here, there are a few different finishes and types of lip products giving you a pretty good selection to choose from. Onto the lip swatches, but this time, by type.

The formulas, through different, are all pretty outstanding. Let me know what your favourite pastel coloured lipsticks are or perhaps your spring go-to shades. I would love to hear any suggestions! 

Til next time, ttfn x
