Spring Lip Color Alternatives | Review ~ { Boho Vanity }

April 22, 2016

When I think of spring makeup, visions of bright peaches, baby pinks, and lots of pastel hues come to mind. I find that even as the weather begins to finally warm up I am still in love with either a simple moisturized lip or the trendy ruddy rose color that I wore all winter long.

For that effortless deep nude lip, I love the somewhat new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor which has a silky texture that dries down to a pillowy velvet matte type of finish. It doesn't feel drying and lasts a good while before beginning to fade and needing a quick touch up.

For a slightly different mood, Flower Beauty's Bare-ly There is similar in color but more saturated with a warm tan undertone. Although it is technically a lip butter, it feels more like a hydrating lipstick as the color is so opaque and smooth. It wears well, and even though it is considered a drugstore lip product I would say it is quite comparable to MAC in terms of its quality and buttery texture.

As for plain lip products, the Soft & Lush by Blistex is a creamy lip balm that instantly moisturizes, conditions, and, my favorite part, smells just like a French vanilla cake. This tube came with me on my trip to the Caribbean since it has a comfortable SPF 15, and lately it has been my absolute favorite chapstick to keep on hand.

Lastly, Blossom's Coconut roll-on gloss is more of a cute, nostalgic decor piece I keep on my vanity, but nonetheless an overall good, basic shiny gloss that smells like summer. It reminds me of the cheap scented glosses that I would collect when I was young, which is another reason why I enjoy keeping it on display.
