Posted by Emily Montanez on Apr 1, 2015 12:29:00 PM

“On a bad day," as the saying goes, "there is always lipstick.” Let us welcome spring with open arms (even if we are still shivering) and embrace all of the color that it has to offer. Spring 2015 is packed with the most vibrant and gorgeous shades of pink, red, orange, purple, and more. There is a color for every complexion; all it takes is a little courage. So, let’s get started with four of the best statement lip colors in for this season:


Pink/Magenta: NARS Velvet Gloss Pencil - Mexican Rose - $26.00

This lip pencil is perfection. It is a jumbo lip pencil in a vibrant rosy pink that goes on smooth and silky. Despite its matte look, it has a glossy finish perfect for a spring look. It contains vitamin E, which is essential to maintain lip hydration and keep the lips smooth for the warmer months.


Red/Orange: Lady Danger - Mac Cosmetics - $16.00

This color is the epitome of a statement. It is a beautiful mixture of red and orange. It has a matte finish perfect for a day-to-night look. It is bright and in your face and strays from the traditional red. LIM College student Nicole says, “I like to wear lipstick, but I am afraid to try a bold color because of the constant need to reapply.” Being that it is matte, it can last you up to eight hours without reapplying, perfect for the woman who just doesn’t have the time to fix herself. If you are tired of your dark and dreary winter red, this color is made for you.


Neon: Countessa Fluorescent - Lime Crime - $18.00

This neon-pink pigmented lipstick is a match made in heaven for the girl who wants to make a statement all around. Separate from the magenta trend, this pink screams at the top of its lungs. It is loaded with pigments, making the lipstick slightly opaque, which allows you to control the brightness for either a subtle or dramatic look. This is perfect for the girl who wants to be noticed this spring.



Variety Red: Rouge Artist Lip Palette (42 Satin Vermillion Red) - Make Up For Ever - $39.00

This palette allows for variety in the boldness of the statement look you want to achieve. It is composed of five different shades of pink and red with an ombré of light to dark. These colors are dense enough to wear on their own, or you can mix and match to achieve different shades of pink or red. Make Up Forever artist Jessica says that “It's a great little palette to try out if you are interested in a new line and getting a variety of shades. It is perfect for travel, a great introduction for a young lady into lip products, or to just to treat yourself.”
