Since Spring is the perfect excuse to wear our favorite lip colors, I am sharing my top five favorite wearable pinks that I will be reaching for over the next few weeks.

When I imagine the perfect everyday lip product for Spring, the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in ‘Petal’ immediately comes to mind. With its buttery texture, hydrating formula, and pinky-nude tint, applying this to my lips is an absolute dream.

The only thing better than a beautiful lipstick is a beautiful lipstick that lasts all day and with the Lipstick Queen Lip Liner in ‘Nude’, all of my signature shades stay put. This rosy-nude complements so many products in my collection and its comfortable consistency is highly effective.

A subtle sheen is always suitable in the Spring, which is why I love the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in ‘Pink Cognito’ . With one effortless swipe, my makeup looks so much more put together and the soft pink with warm, peachy undertones helps brighten my complexion.

I love layering a clear lip gloss on top of this Wet N Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Just Peachy’ to make its matte finish more fresh for Spring. This particular range of lipsticks features highly concentrated pigment, making this shade a great choice if you are in the mood for a true peach lip.

Bright pink lipsticks are something I have successfully managed to avoid, but the NYX Round Case Lipstick in ‘Tea Rose’ has made me realize that they can be worn in a way that is sophisticated and un-Barbie-like. This creamy, high-shine formula features a universally-flattering shade of pink that I cannot recommend enough, regardless of the season.
