Best Drugstore Lipsticks For Spring & Summer

Monday, March 7, 2016

A good lipstick is key to confidence and at least looking like you have your life together (JK. But really.) and as soon as March hits you'll find me reaching for my brighter, pink-y toned lippies. (why is that such a weird word to say in a sentence) Maybe it's a southern thing? (Reese Witherspoon taught us well)

Anyway, I'm all for splurging on high end, but my favorite lip colors always end up being drugstore. SO I've rounded up five of my picks for best spring/ summer colors:
Let's start with a couple of NYX colors: I first tried out Summer Breeze last year and it quickly became a favorite. Its matte finish leaves a fresh pop of pink, without being too overpowering. Strawberry Milk is a lighter tone, but the brightness factor is upped, along with pigmentation. This whole color screams spring, am I right? PS NYX staying power= magic.

Two of my favorite Maybelline colors for the warmer months are Faint For Fuchsia and Shocking Coral. The fuchsia is such a great bright pink that makes anything pop. It's a nice pigment and of course I love the creamy matte finish. Shocking coral is a sharp pink made for days spent poolside, or to instantly brighten up any outfit. The staying power on pretty much all Maybelline lipsticks are always great, as well.

And then we have elf's Dash of Pink, a rich matte "red pink" tone that's perfect for when you need a color that says "I definitely didn't wake up late today." It's subtle yet gets the point across and while you may need to reapply a couple times throughout the day, its pigmentation is a good one.

OK, time to tell me your picks! Do you swap out your lipsticks with the seasons or are you more of a "anytime, all the time"? xo,
