The change in season is the perfect opportunity to clean out our makeup drawer and do a little updating. It’s not only a good reminder to ditch the mascara for a new one since seasons are 3 months long (which happens to be the maximum shelf life for an opened mascara), but also a great time to hydrate and brighten our lips!
Have you shied away from a sheer coral or refrained from pink while reaching for wintry mauves, taupes, and reds? Or maybe chapped lips are the unfortunate shade you wish to address this spring?
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite lip treatments and colors to help transition into spring and freshen up any makeup bag.
BITE Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub // The perfect prep for hydrated lips, this scrub exfoliates dead skin and allows nourishing balms to penetrate.
Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner // This sulfate-, paraben- and phthalate-free sheer organic lipstick conditions and our favorite shade, In Paradise, is subtle enough for even the most coral wary users.
BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne // My personal favorite go-to for a beautiful, hydrated pout is this lip mask which actually doubles as a gloss. The ingredients are nutritious and thick, and the color is the softest hint of rose.
Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Sunset Cruise // Yes they make lipsticks! Burt’s Bees has done it again with moringa oil and vitamin E, and without breaking the bank. Sunset Cruise is a gorgeous spring shade in their lipstick lineup.
Love + Sage Ultra Violet Tinted Balm // Pantone’s Color of the Year is Ultra Violet – and this hue from one of our favorite lip balm brands makes me think of spring flowers.4
