Perfect Spring Lips: My Favorite Bright Pink Lip Colors

My go-to lip color is normally a muted, pale pink that goes with anything. I typically like to wear eye makeup that’s on the darker side so a light lip balances this out.

Now that the warm weather has arrived, I prefer a beauty routine that’s more low maintenance. I’ve been wearing a light, shimmery eyeshadow (like this and this), a touch of bronzer and a sheer, bright pink lip color. It makes for a perfect spring/summer look that takes only minutes to put together. Here are my favorite bright pink lip colors I’ve been using regularly this spring:

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

This is currently my daily lip color. It’s bright enough to make your lips pop and sheer enough to wear to the office and apply easily without a mirror. It’s a juicy watermelon cream shade with no shimmer. The Revlon Lip Butters have no scent, which I really like.

Aveda Nourish-Mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze in Pink Lotus

This is a gorgeous blue-based bright pink gloss that’s fully pigmented like a lipstick. It’s perfect for going out because it goes on easily and leaves your lips super shiny and pink.

Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Loud Mouth

This lip pen is adorable, it smells good and the color is a bright rosy pink. The color pigment is intense and it wears like a lipstick. I’ll dab this on lightly for a wearable daytime color and apply more heavily at night.

Revlon Moondrops Lipstick in Persian Melon

My favorite blogger, Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere, loves this lipstick. She lists it as one of her favorite items here. This is a great lip color for going out. It’s a gorgeous hot pink cream with no shimmer, which is ideal. I prefer a lip color with no shimmer when a color is this bright. I recently purchased it and absolutely love the color. It’s definitely a fantastic drugstore lipstick and should be added to this list!
