Today I have another part of my Spring Makeup Series for you. As much as I love a bright and glowy base, lipsticks are very special to me. That's the fun part of every look.. and to me personally I also just love the look of a pretty lipstick collection on my vanity.. haha. Please tell me I am not the only one!

Anyway, back to the topic. In general, I would say my favourite kinds of lipsticks are matte ones. Especially when it comes to bolder colours. But I think spring is the perfect time for more shiny and glossy looking lips. On the other hand, it wouldn't be me if I wouldn't include at least one matte lipstick..

So let's start with the only matte one. For this category, I have chosen the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in 217 Nude Trouble. Nudes are a must have for me all year but especially in the springtime, I love light colours on my lips. This lipstick is one of my favourite matte formulas as it is pretty matte, but not too matte that it looks and feels drying.. the perfect in between! The lasting power is also incredible. But I would like to add that the name is a bit misleading. This is more of a muted pink colour than a nude. But still very very pretty if you want to try something else than your standard nude. 

The next one is another pinky nude, but a very sheer and glossy version: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick in 47 Beige Blouse. This formula is a bit more spring appropriate. But because of the very moisturising oils in the lipstick, I also love it in the colder months when my lips are very dry. Of course it is not as long lasting as the matte formula but believe me.. the packaging is so stunning you are happy to get it out a few times a day to reapply!

Can you tell I am a YSL fan? Another one of their lipsticks or better said lip creams made it into my spring selection: Yves Saint Laurent Vernis A Levres Vinyl Cream in 404 Nude Pulse. I have recently gotten into lip creams, especially for spring and summer I love the creamy and light texture. The colour is another pretty nude, a bit more beige maybe and the lasting power is between the Rouge Pur Couture Mat and the Rouge Volupte Shine. So if you want a bit more colour but not the matte look then this one is a perfect choice.

This wouldn't be my blog if I wouldn't show you at least one Chanel lipstick.. so if I want a bit of Chanel on my lips in the spring time, I will most likely choose the Chanel Rouge Coco in 402 Adrienne. This is not only one of my spring faves, but I would say one of my top 3 lipsticks of all time. This shade of nude is so flattering on me, it gives enough colour without being too much and the finish is light and moisturising so that I can wear it even when my lips are not in the best state... such a dream!

I am not sure under which category you can find this product but I would just describe it as a lip tint/lipgloss: Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 142 Freedom of Peach. I have first seen this on Estee Lalonde's Youtube and fallen in love. I am normally not the biggest lipgloss fan and also peachy tones scare me a bit but this product just works for me. The colour payoff is not too much so that my lips look like a juicy subtle peach shade. But the best is the formula, it is so hard to describe but it feels so light and different on the lips. Again there are different oils in the shaker which are probably the main reason for the smoothing and calming feeling on the lips. But I definitely have to say that the colour doesn't stay on as long as I would like it to. But I guess that's just how it is with glossy and moisturising lip products.

Last but not least I have a lip care product. My lips aren't as dry in the spring time as they are in winters but a bit of extra care is always good. I have recently fallen in love with the Dior Addict Lip Scrub and just can't get enough. I use it as a preparation for any lipstick (especially the matte ones) but I also use it on casual days on its own. It is so moisturising and leaves my lips looking fabulous.

By the way, all of these shades and lipsticks are just perfect for the current easter time. I don't have a certain look I go for every easter but I will be surely wearing one of these beauties! Also, head over to Flaconi for a beautiful selection of products for the easter time!
