Hi Everyone! I took a little shopping trip to Target a few days ago and picked up a few goodies I wanted to share with you. I've really been coveting the look of bright lips seen splashed all over magazines & makeup counters lately. Since I wasn't sure whether or not bright lips would look good on myself though, I didn't want to make a huge investment & decided to pick up some affordable drugstore options.
I thought it would be helpful to show you two different ways to wear this Spring trend: Subtle or Bold. For the subtle look I picked up Revlon's Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, a bright semi-sheer watermelon red. For the bold look I wanted to go with a coral. I chose Maybelline's ColorSensational Lipstick in Coral Crush, a very pigmented coral pink.

Although I enjoyed wearing both of these colors, the Revlon Lip Butter was honestly something I might actually reach for on a normal day as a cute pick-me-up color. I thought this lip butter was very feminine & really brightened up the face.
The Maybelline color however, was a bit too bold for daytime for me. I did love the look, but as a girl who rarely strays from nude or light pink lips, this was just a wee bit out of my comfort zone. I do think I would reach for this color again as a night-out lip.

How do you feel about wearing bright lips for Spring? Do you prefer to wear subtle or bold colors on your lips?
Lots of Love,
