Beauty ¦ Spring pinks

I love a good bright pink lip but in the autumn and winter they tend to take a backseat in favour of deeper plums and reds. The sunny weather we've had recently (which seems to now be long gone) had me digging out some old favourites from my stash and giving some new shades a go!
Topshop Sheer lips in Lolly -
I picked this up in the sales around Christmas time and I really love it. The shade is a very bright but very sheer tint which leaves the lips looking slightly tinted but most of all super glossy and healthy. I don't find the formula sticky and it feels very hydrating. This is definitely the bright for people who are afraid of brights.
Clinique Chubby stick intense in Plushest punch -
This was something I picked up in Germany with the summer in mind, I have worn it a fair bit but I feel like I'm going to wear it a lot throughout the summer. This seriously packs a punch colour wise whilst still feeling light and hydrating. The only slight problem I have with it is that the lasting power is quite short however due to the hydration it gives I can get over it!
Revlon Matte balm in Showy -
One of the two very bright shades in this line up this is definitely not one for the faint hearted. It's a very blue toned almost neon purple. These balms last a ridiculous time of time on the lips whilst still being creamy and hydrating (I'm sensing a pattern with this one)
Maybelline Colour sensational in Shocking coral -
The other almost neon shade in this line up is this absolute beauty. A very orange toned neon pink it seriously makes a statement and I love pairing it with a very toned down face and lots of bronzer. I feel like this is the one I will be reaching for when I have a tan!
Gosh velvet touch lipstick in Yours forever -
This is just a pretty standard fuchsia but I really love the formula and the lasting power. It feels super velvety on the lips (as the name suggests) and it last for a crazy amount of time.
Bourjois Rouge edition velvet in Pink pong -
I can't quite believe it has taken me this long to give these a try. This shade is a blue toned fuchsia with some serious lasting power. They don't feel drying on the lips despite the lasting power. This has definitely made me want to try more shades. I have my eye on Hot pepper!
