Glossy, Bright Lipsticks Are Our Spring Must-Have

We’re kissing winter’s berry-hued, vampy lips goodbye and greeting spring with brighter hues. This year’s spring collections are filled with eye-catching pops of color, like bold oranges to pinks, and we’re using these chubby lip pencils from Aussie brand Mirenesse to score the look. Made with a slightly waxy texture, they glide on like a gloss but have the rich color and staying power of lipstick. (Bonus: you can use them to brighten up your cheeks, too!)

4 Fierce Fashion Campaigns for Stellar Spring Lip Inspiration

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Spring officially starts next week! Besides cleaning out my closet to make room for brighter hues and lighter fabrics, it’s time to reevaluate my beauty sitch. While I can never resist a red lip, this might be the perfect time to get adventurous and experiment with new hues. With that said, here’s a roundup of four additional spring campaigns that shine a light on perfect pouts.

Polish fashion label, Reserved, was inspired by ’80s and ’90s beauty for this campaign, hence the Robert Palmer pucker. Make’s Silk Cream Lipstick and this handy how-to are all you need to channel the look.

Luckily, we’re teaming up with Pixi on a sweepstakes to find out which Instagram filter is the best for looking bright eyed and bushy tailed—even if we haven’t had our morning caffeine fix yet.
