Springtime is here, and it’s the perfect time to rock a bright, colorful lipstick! I look forward to this every single year. I just love to play with bright colors, even if some people think it’s “too much”.
TOO FACED MELTED FUSCHIA & VIOLET
Both these lipsticks have a big, bright punch. You will definitely stand out if you’re wearing them. Too Faced Melted Lipsticks are long-lasting, not drying, and very saturated. They are easy to apply with the applicator.
COLOURPOP ULTRA MATTE LIP IN SEESAW
This is a little more of a muted color, but it’s still a pretty pale pink that is perfect for warmer weather. The Ultra Matte Lip is very long-lasting — it’s not going anywhere! The lighter color is easy to apply, and wears best if lips are hydrated and exfoliated beforehand.
COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX IN I HEART THIS
This is also a matte shade, although unlike the liquid lipsticks, this is not very drying. It lasts a long time with minimal transfer.
REVLON COLORBURST LIP BUTTER IN TUTTI FRUITTI
This is an oldie, but a goodie! It’s nice and sheer, so it’s less intimidating even though the color is fairly bright. It’s also very hydrating and easy to apply.
MAC GIRL ABOUT TOWN & VEGAS VOLT
These are probably my top two favorite shades for the season. Since these colors are so pigmented, I prefer to initially apply them with a lip brush to keep the colors from bleeding. A lip liner and/or primer are also helpful.
Those are my favorites! So far, at least. I’m definitely opening to discovering some new favorites, so tell me: what are your favorite lipsticks for Springtime?
A HUNDRED TINY WISHES
Hey there, I’m Tabitha. I am one mascara obsessed, wine drinking, mother, wife, & animal lover, who happens to live in the Midwest. I am also a holder of a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice, an Etsy shop owner, a home grown county girl who is opinionated & sarcastic (at least according to my husband), and the creative mind behind a hundred tiny wishes. I have always been a fan of what writing can do for a person… as it allows for expression of oneself & helps make sense of a world some don’t understand. I started a hundred tiny wishes in Sept ’13 as an outlet… and most of the time it’s a place where I bear my soul.
In my spare time, I am the designer behind tiny wishes designs, an Etsy shop that features hand painted, heat cured glassware and jewelry. Each piece of painted glassware is created for the buyer, and is custom. AND if you go visit and see something that you like, use HAPPYSPRING for 30% off!
1. Do you feel like you fit into a blogging niche?
Honestly, no. When I started blogging, I thought about becoming a beauty blogger, or even a fashion blogger. And since I have a child, I thought about even joining the elite world of mommy bloggers. But nothing made sense to me, as I have so many interests. Once I started getting serious about blogging, I finally identified as a lifestyle blogger. That niche allows my (self diagnosed) ADD to roam, and I can basically post whatever I want. To talk about life, family, beauty, diy, motherhood, photography, confessions, style, etc.
2. What’s your favorite thing about your hometown?
I was born and raised in Northwest Indiana, which happens to be about an hour outside of Chicago, and less than 30 minutes from Lake Michigan. It’s a great place to live, as I am still in the area. I love that I am able to indulge in the happenings of the city, while living in the country- where my heart is.
3. What is your #1 must-have beauty product?
Mascara, hands down. I have tried alot of beauty products, and aside from the normal musts for me, mascara is the one product that floats my boat. I have really thin lashes, so it just makes sense that I love mascara. And I think I even love mascara more than shoes. Heck, I will go as far as saying that I have an obsession with it considering it’s the one thing that I never leave home without and the only beauty product that I have an extreme love-hate relationship with. I am also VERY picky on which mascara I use. I am not a huge fan of drugstore, and generally only use high end.
