Spotted: Spring Lippies at Local Drugstores

Now that we're officially in Spring, our closets aren't the only thing that needs to be "Spring-ified." Our make up bags need a little changing up to incorporate the hot new trends as well. And I believe one of the easiest ways to do just that is a great new lipstick color.

Since I received so much positive feedback about Tiffany's beauty product reviews, I had her round up some great affordable Spring lipstick options for you all. Here are her picks for ones you all should try next time you're at Target.
Spring time is finally here! Time to swap those dark colors for more vibrant and pastel colors! I wanted to share with you guys some of my favorite lip products to use that are perfect colors for spring. I've chosen different formulas to benefit all sorts of preferences...

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balms - $5.99-7.99 [buy here]
The most basic lipsticks are lip balms! No one likes chapped lips and the Colour Riche Balms by L'Oreal Paris are the perfect on the go lippies for the ladies who don't like too much pigmentation. My favorite three are Caring Coral, Rose Elixir, and Legally Regal. Caring Coral and Rose Elixir are from the original collection. Many make-up gurus compared these balms to the Revlon Lip Butters (which have AMAZING pigmentation!!), but I see no comparison because they are complete two different formulas and products. These balms are great at providing some sheen and tint of lighter/brighter pigmentation to your lips. I love these for the days I barely wear any makeup! They are hydrating and are not over bearing if you like a more natural look. I just recently picked up Legally Regal from the new Spring '13 collection. There are several more pastels from this collection ... Don't let the blue balm turn you away, it's a transparent balm, but never the less the formulation of these balms are to die for! 

Maybelline Baby Lips [buy here] - $2.99-4 & Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick - $5.50-7.00 [buy here]
Maybelline Baby Lips have released tinted colors. The name says it all ... the formulation is made to turn your lips baby smooth within weeks of use. Not only is the packaging super adorable, their tinted colors have just enough color to give your lips more emphasis. They do not have as much sheen to them as the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balms, but the pigmentation is perfect for the ladies who prefer a simpler look. They are priced very well, it's hard to resist picking one up! Maybelline currently has released a set of limited edition colors that are available at your local drugstore.

Maybelline has definitely stepped up their game this Spring by launching their Vivids Collection! I fell absolutely in love with their daring colors for Spring. I recommend Vivid Rose, it's the most skin tone friendly for all shades of skin. I also absolutely adore Fuchsia Flash, I believe it's a dupe for Candy Yum Yum by Mac Cosmetics! If you are daring and love bold lips, you will adore this collection. These are definitely statement colors that have a beautiful satin finish on the lips. (Note: I used to HATE Maybelline lipsticks because they smelled like playdough to me, but it looks like Maybelline has worked of that issue and the smell is so faint, I barely notice it)

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - $7.50-8.50 [buy here]
For all you ladies who cannot stop smothering your babies and toddlers in kisses, but love lippies, this is the PERFECT product for you. The formulation is made to stain your lips without leaving any residue on your cups ... and children! From my own personal experience, it takes about two applications to get full pigmentation of color and after a few tissue kisses, the color isn't going anywhere! I even love the fact that the product has a minty scent and gives your lip that slight tingling sensation from the minty-ness. Don't let the jumbo pencil appearance scare you because it rolls up when twisting the bottom. Just color your lips and go! It has amazing lasting power also! With its moisturizing formula, no one can go wrong with these balm stains!

How amazing are these lipstick options? And all are under $10. I'm not going to lie I've never been fond of lipsticks but these recent collections released are quite impressive. So impressive I've found myself going back to grab some more colors. In my own personal opinion the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain's are the best things ever! And L'Oreal's Spring pastel collection comes in a close second. So if you're looking to add a little something new to your make-up routine this Spring why not try some of these fun lipsticks.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend! And look for another beauty review from Tiffany next week.
