Spring lip colours! L'Oreal, Soap & Glory and Max Factor

I'm back... with a new post! The sun inspired me to write this post.

1. L'Oreal LExtraordinaire 201 Rose Symphony
2. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss stick Nudist
3. Max Factor Colour Elixir 825 Pink Brandy

So, I have been loving these few lip products lately. Especially because the sun has been out in England (although it is still chilly) and it has put everyone in a happier mood! In my books, happy = bright colours. Without further ado, here are the 3 lip products I have been LOVING.

1. L'Oreal LExtraordinaire 201 Rose Symphony
This has got to be my greatest find this month! I have always wanted to try these "Liquid lipsticks" ever since YSL came out with the Glossy stains but have just found it too difficult to justify buying it for over £20, especially as I wasn't sure if I would use it regularly. Anyway, back to the L'Oreal one... It is so pigmented and smells sweet and fruity which I love. I literally dab a tiny bit on my bottom lip and then rub my lips together and even it out by patting it with my fingers to achieve a gorgeous pink stain on my lips. I opted for the slightly brighter shade from the range as my lips are naturally quite pink so choosing a nude shade would be pointless! I am definitely going to try another one of their bright shades in preparation for Summer! 

2. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss stick Nudist
I first heard about this from Fleur from FleurDeForce - she manages to find the most amazing products that I have tried out on her recommendation! For me, this doesn't really apply on my lips with any colour but for those of you who have naturally paler lips may see a bit of colour. What I love about this is that it a) smells good and b) feels so nice on your lips. If you ever forget to bring a lipbalm with you, then this gloss stick will sort you out! It leaves your lips feeling so soft and it literally does what it says on the tin. It is a lips gloss in a stick form! It gives your lips a glossy sheen that isn't TOO glossy that your hair sticks to it when it's windy. You can apply it without a mirror too which is always handy on the go. 

3. Max Factor Colour Elixir 825 Pink Brandy
This colour is amazing on the lips and I can imagine it looking even better when you have a slight tan! I have had lots of compliments when wearing this on my lips which is always a bonus :). This coral colour is so flattering if you have medium to light skin tone and is great for an every day lipstick when you are a bit sick and tired of wearing pinks and reds all the time. It lasts quite well and I find that if you put a light layer of it on and then dab your lips with some tissue and then put another layer of it on, it lasts up to a few hours and it stains your lips. 

What lip products have you been loving for Spring so far?
