Shades of Orchid-My April Lip Picks

This spring, I’ve been loving purpley-pink lip colors. Mauve, plum, periwinkle, magenta, mulberry-they’re so lovely and such great colors to spruce up that perfect spring outfit ๐Ÿ™‚ Today I want to share with you my four favorite lip products in these colors.

This is a fairly thick gloss that’s extremely pigmented and shiny. It goes on really easily and also smells divine! This is the most purple in color of the four products-I would describe it as a deep lavender. It lasts fairly well for being a gloss and stays on for about 2-3 hours if you don’t eat or drink. This is a great choice if you don’t like taking the time out to apply a lipstick, but still like having color on your lips. They come in a whole range of colors too!lipcomp4ย  ย  ย 2. Fuschia Fusionlipcomp5 Next up-Fuschia Fusion by Revlon! This is a creamy lipstick that goes on as a bright magenta color. It’s really a true fuschia, and goes on as quite pink for me. It has great staying power, lasting about 5 hours without reapplying. I got it as a gift, and it’s brighter than something I would normally wear on a day-to-day basis, but it’s great for a night out or to change things up once in a while!lipcomp6

lipcomp7 The Milani lipstick is one that I’ve been enjoying for a while now. This is my go-to, everyday lipstick when I’m running out the door late for an 8 am class. It’s subtle enough to wear everyday, but pigmented enough to really add to your look. I love this lipstick so much! It also has that signature watermelon scent that comes with Milani products, which I think is so yummy. When I wear it, I only reapply it after eating or drinking and it lasts all day!lipcomp8ย  ย  ย 4. Just Garnet

lipcomp10I talked about this Wet N Wild lipstick in my March Favorites post-check it out here for a more in depth description! I’ll just say again how fun this color is for spring! It’s highly pigmented and goes on very smoothly. I sometimes experience some tugging when putting on the Milani, but I never get that with this one! I encourage you to check out Wet N Wild’s lipstick in your local drugstore if you haven’t already
