the lip wardrobe: spring

Do I wear a dark lip or do I keep it nude? That’s the dilemma I always find in spring so I thought I would compile my favourite spring shades together in one post seeing as I am the most indecisive person when it comes to lip products… 
L’oreal lipsticks are honestly amazing and I really rate them highly, especially for the price. I’ve included one of the Colour Riche lipsticks (in the shade 630 and priced at Β£6.99) and I think it is the perfect browny nude for spring! It is quite similar to Velvet Teddy as well so if you’re on the look out for a dupe I would really recommend that. The great thing about this lipstick is it is really creamy as well, so you won’t be caught out with dry lips if fit gets a little colder during the spring months! 
I couldn’t do a lipstick post and not talk about MAC! I’ve included two options, a gorgeous darker pink (Mehr) and a stunning ‘your lips but better’ shade (Brave). I get so many compliments when I’m wearing brave and I think it is perfect for all year round – especially spring! 
A bargain buy from Sephora is actually the perfect inbetween shade Marvelous Mauve, it’s darker than your usual spring lip but still lighter than a plum or berry shade – I love it! It also goes so well with so many makeup looks, especially a taupey eye (here’s a link to my latest makeup look). 
My last lip option for spring is Nars Dolce vita. I’m sure you’re all sick of me going on about this lip pencil but I love it so much! The formula is great, the shade is perfect for spring and it compliments my skin tone perfectly. I wish I bought more (although I’m sure my purse is breathing a sigh of relief). Nars are on of my favourite brands and they never fail to disappoint! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and what spring lip options have you been loving lately?

    Thanks for the tip on the Velvet Teddy dupe. I haven't tried the Color Riche lipsticks yet but you and many others have said they're brilliant, I gotta get me some! MAC's Brave looks like a great spring shade as well.

    Brave is such a gorgeous shade! In Spring I tend to put my darker, harsh tones to bed and bring out the pinks and similar shades you've mentioned here. They all look so gorgeous, not at all helping with my lipcolour obsession haha. Great post hun xx

    Thank you lovely! My lip colour obsession isn't stopping any time soon! xx

    I didn't want to buy Mac brave as I thought it was too similar to my other lipsticks but it really isn't! Such a gorgeous shade πŸ™‚ xx

  7. Eleanor Pritchard 21st March 2016 at 8:33 pm

    It is! Great if you can't find it/don't want to pay Mac prices πŸ™‚

    I've been wanting to try MAC Brave for so so long now as well as the Sephora lip creams- both look incredibly nice

  11. Eleanor Pritchard 22nd March 2016 at 8:39 pm

    They're pretty amazing! So sad they don't sell them in the uk! x

  12. Eleanor Pritchard 22nd March 2016 at 8:40 pm

    I actually love MAC Brave, it's an all round great everyday shade! They're both great πŸ™‚

    So in love with Mac lipsticks! I think I tend to be more of a light lipstick colour girl I definitely need to branch out and try more dark colours. πŸ™‚

  14. Eleanor Pritchard 24th March 2016 at 6:58 am

    I think these are a happy medium! Not too light but not too dark πŸ™‚

    I love the NARS lip pencils too, Dolce Vita is such a pretty shade! xx


  19. mika 28th March 2016 at 7:17 pm

    The struggle is real! Picking a lip color is such an intense process haha! Absolutely love that Sephora matte one!


  20. Eleanor Pritchard 28th March 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Aren't they! Dolce vita isn't raved about enough in my opinion! xx

  21. Eleanor Pritchard 28th March 2016 at 8:22 pm

    I plan my lipstick around my outfit so it definitely is an intense process! It's a gorgeous lip product πŸ™‚ xoxo

  22. Eleanor Pritchard 29th March 2016 at 8:39 pm

    Thank you so much! My lipsticks are my favourite part of my makeup collection haha! πŸ™‚ xxx

    Brave is one of my favourite lipsticks, yet somehow I wear it for a week straight, then loose it for a month, without fail every single time!

  24. Eleanor Pritchard 30th March 2016 at 8:38 pm

    No way that's so weird! I always lose my lipsticks and then find them in random places!

  25. Jasmine Stewart 13th April 2016 at 7:17 pm

    I seriously had hearts in my eyes looking at the first picture as these are just my sort of shades – then scrolled down and realised I own almost all of them :') haha still great picks! I don't have MAC Brave or the L'Oreal shade so will definitely need to check those out as it seems we are on the same wavelength when it comes to lip colours πŸ™‚ xx

    might have to treat myself to that sephora lip in marvelous mauve – looks so pretty and could picture it with maybe whites or florals this spring/summer ^.^

    Omg this made me laugh! I guess we have really similar lip product tastes then, definitely try out brave – I think you'll love it πŸ™‚ xx

  28. Eleanor Pritchard 13th April 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Totally! I think that would be a really pretty outfit/lip combo πŸ™‚
