Happy National Lipstick Day! (and Get A Free Lipstick and Lipgloss!)

Today is National Lipstick Day and in honor I thought I’d share my lip favorites lately and a FREE Lipstick offer!

Summer Time Go-To:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon (NOW ONLY $4.99). This formula wears more like a glossy balm and has a bit of shine and extremely nourishing and I love it.  The easy melon coral shade is super flattering for an every day shade during the summer.

Spicy Shade:  Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Chocolate Rose (NOW ONLY $4.99!) Brown shades are super on trend right now but this one is a little spicy with some red undertones.  This kind of shade is  a great way to wear a bold shade without being to loud.

{Sidenote:  obiviously I’m really digging this mark. Box Set Necklace ($24.00).  It just always goes!  All 3 pics were taken on different days and yes I wear black that often}

Red Hot Lip Color – mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11).  This red is the perfect summer red.  Because the formula is more a nourishing balm you wouldn’t expect the color pay off to be so much but it’s amazing.

Lip Shades You Need For Spring

Happy first day of spring!  As the days continue to climb a little warmer, and the sunlight lasts a little longer it’s time to freshen things up.  Time to clean the windows and open them up for some fresh air.  Time for fresh flowers to brighten things up.  Time to refresh your look the easiest way possible, your lips!  Here are the top 5 lip shades for spring:

1.  Deep Berry/Wine

D&G Spring 2015

D&G Spring 2015

Think just finished eating a bowl full of berries or wine stained look rather than a deep dark color.  Dolce and Gabbana’s spring 2015 show nailed this look and made super wearable.  Try a lip stain (like Avon Extra Lasting Lip Stain + Balm in Berry bitten) or a lip pencil (Like Avon Ultra Color Lip Pencil in Pouty Plum) for more of a effortless look.

2.  Orange Red

Red is always a classic, but reds that lean toward orange are super hot for spring.  It’s like you’re taking the classic and making it citrus-tastic for spring!  A bold red lip was huge on the spring runways.  Try Avon Ultra Color Lipsitck in Poppy Love.

 

3.  Hot Coral

Coral goes mega-watt for spring!  Pair it with the bronzed cheeks we saw all over the runways and you’ll look instantly ready for spring break… or that you took a killer spring break, either way win win.  Try Avon Ultra Color Indulgence in Peach Petunia.

4.  Peachy Melon

Switch out your nude lip for a peachy melon lip.  It’s basic enough to go with a smokey eye but steps up the game with making things just a little prettier for spring.  Try Avon Ultra Color Absolute lipstick in creamy melon.

5.  Pink

From baby doll to bubble gum to bright, pink as always and will always be a spring go-to.  We saw all the ranges at fashion week so pick a pink that you feel comfortable wearing.  Fuchsias work for any skin tone for a bright like Try Avon Ultra Color Bold in Fearless Fuchsia.  If you want something more demure go with a rose like Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Rose Bouquet.  Try my all time favorite pink Avon Ultra Color Absolute in Pink Renewal.
