Top 5// Spring Lip Colors

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Spring is upon us (despite the snow that is currently falling outside my window) which means its time to switch up my go to lip colors.  For spring I tend to gravitate towards two types of colors bold pinks or nudes. There is a wide range of these shades out there, which can make it hard to choose from the seamless endless possibilities, so to help narrow down the choice I've chosen just five.
                                             Here are my top 5 spring go-to-lip colors 
First up is the Maybelline Color Whisper in Petal Rebel. This is the lightest shade of the 5, but possibly my favorite. In the tube the color looks kind of scary bright, but it applies sheer so it is not as intense. Its very easy to swipe one coat on and have a little added color to your lips to liven them up, or you can apply a few layers for a more intense color. 
The formula of the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick is absolute perfection. Even though this is a matte lipstick it is very moisturizing! The color of this lipstick is the perfect nude for spring time. It is more on the darker side of the nude spectrum, but it looks fresh on the lips. 
Mac's plumful is what I consider a bright berry color. Its a good transition color from the darker lip shades more common in winter to the brighter hues we see during the spring. When I want a good mix between a bold and an easy to wear color I grab for plumful!

If the amazing smell of this lipgloss isn't enough to get me to grab for it then the color pay off is! All around this lip gloss is one of the best I have, and even better its from the drugstore. The formula of the butter gloss is every lip gloss lover's dream, not too sticky and color that stays!
Lastly is another product from NYX. Their soft matte lip creams are the perfect combination of lip gloss to lip stain. This product applies as a cream gloss and dries to a matte finish. Unlike most matte lip stains NYX's soft mattes do not dry out my lips at all! And to top it all off the color lasts all day with only maybe one touch up needed!

Line 3: satchel hat sandals heel

March was when the weather took a turn for the better, and my love for spring/summer clothes came out in full force. This month I was loving more of the festival vibe clothing. A very exciting line that has recently come out is the H&M cochella line. The line has that effortless summer boho feel. I have also been gravitating towards pops of color, especially in my accessories. Topshop has been drawing me in with their beautiful pops of pastels, and are almost begging me to be in my spring wardrobe. All in all this month I have been loving a good mix of light spring like and festival ready items.

Welcome World

Hello, this is my very first blog post ever, which is exciting, but also makes me a little nervous. I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now,but have always been a bit apprehensive. What could I possibly post about, what would be interesting about the simple normalcies of my life? Instead of asking myself why I should do this I should have been asking myself why not? I want this to be a somewhere where I can always look back at to see what I was loving, where I was going, what I was wearing, what I was eating, and most importantly what I was passionate about. These post may not be the most impressive, or the most exciting things, and I can't promise how often I'll post( I may have this for a month and then quit already), but I will post about the what I love and the things that make me simply ashley.
