23 Sep [#365BeautyTips] Spring Lips
The thirty- seventh week of #365BeautyTips has come to an end and as promised, I have put together a round-up post which puts all the beauty tips, shared this week, in one place. The idea is to share any extra information and answer the questions that you may have asked on my social media posts. Remember that if you want to stay up to date with my 365 days of beauty challenge, then follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
THIS WEEK’S THEME IS…
#365BEAUTYTIPS – DAY: 260
Let’s kick off the spring lips with a luscious nude, boasting a juicy kiss of peach. This is Elizabeth Arden’s Desert Rose – 17.
#365BEAUTYTIPS – DAY: 261
There’s not a season that passes where I don’t find an excuse to wear a bright red lip, after all.. You can never go wrong with red! This affordable offering from Essence is part of their XXXL Longlasting lipgloss range in Matt Effect. The color is brightly pigmented, has a silky feeling and looks great with everything. This is in the shade 07- Silky Red.

Today’s spring lip is a more coral variant and it’s probably one that I don’t wear nearly enough but when I do, everyone asks about it. Sadly, it is a limited edition from CATRICE’s Treasure Trove range but it’s too good not to wear this Spring! It’s in the shade 02 – Caviar and Champagne (I mean, that name is just perfect too ?) This shade has a creamy luscious finish, offers great pigment and as with all CATRICE lipsticks, offers great longevity

Peaches, Pinks and Corals set the tone for Spring and while I usually opt for bright stand-out colors, there’s always a day for soft pinks. This pink, from CATRICE, is called 300- Kiss me If you can. It’s a subtle pop of pink, perfect for the everyday spring look, with a sheer buildable color. I love the tiny pigments of shimmer in this lipstick, giving it that extra little something.

Hot pink is not usually my typical colour, in fact, this lipstick had never been used until this swatch. CATRICE slays yet again with their Ultimate Color Lipstick in 140 – Pinker-bell (how gorgeous is that name?!) And after this swatch, it’s definitely going to be making more appearances this Spring. I mean, what a perfect pop of colour.

Another one from Essence’ XXXL long lasting lip gloss range in Matt Effect. This time, the shade isn’t quite as bright but it is an awesome colour for an everyday work-appropriate look. This is in the shade 05-Velvet Rose
#365BEAUTYTIPS – DAY: 266
Public service announcement – only 100 days until 2017! Okay, as you were. Today’s spring lips is for those who aren’t a fan of full pigmented lipsticks but prefer just a hint of juicyness. The Essence Sheer and Shine range packs the slightest scent of Vanilla with a subtle pop of colour. At first, I thought these were tinted lip balms but have realized that they are the perfect lipstick for everyday or just running to the shop sort-of-makeup-looks.
And that is a wrap on the last 7 days. Whoop-Whoop! Remember that I love any feedback – what have you enjoyed seeing, what would you like to see more of and perhaps if you have any suggestions, questions or products you would like me to chat more about. I really enjoyed the themed days – what themes would you like to see next?
