Spring is here! (Although I hear horrible rumors that it is snowing in some parts of the country today. That’s downright nasty.)
As I type this post, it’s a perfect 74 degrees with sunny, blue skies in my neck of the woods. This gorgeous weather can only mean one thing – it’s time to update my daily makeup look with some fresh pink and coral lip glosses. The three glosses shown above have become my holy grail during the last month, and two of them can be bought at the drugstore! LOVE IT.
Have you all tried Sally Hansen Diamond 12 Hr. Lip Treatments? Seriously, stop what you are doing and get thee to a drugstore STAT. These glosses are sublime. The colors last all day, yet they aren’t sticky in the least. I’m having a hard time shelling out the big bucks for my Chanel and NARS stand-bys after trying these glosses. (psst – thank you to Karen for bringing these lovelies into my life. When it comes to cosmetics, what Karen says goes.) Flawless is a gorgeous pinkish coral, and Baguette is a sheer, shimmering fuchsia. Try ’em, you’ll like ’em. (People! They are only $6 a pop! What’s to lose?)
My other current favorite is Josie Maran Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Brilliance. A sheer, shimmering light pink, this shade is perfect for every day wear, especially if you are running out the door without much of anything else on your face. Totally natural and fresh looking. My only beef with this gloss is that the brush has become totally splayed after only a week or two. What’s up with that? However, I’m willing to look past it since the color is so gorgeous.
What about you? What are some of your favorite lip glosses for sunny, spring-like weather?
