Best Lipsticks for Spring (Women of Color Friendly)

Best Lipsticks for Spring

While Fall is my favorite season for fashion, Spring is hands down my favorite season for lipstick. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, I have no shortage of lipsticks/lip glosses/lip lacuqers, so as soon as the days start getting longer, my lips start getting brighter.  Like, a lot brighter. So without further ado, I bring you a snippet of some of my favorite spring lipsticks.

rimmel-london-stellar-swatchFirst up: Rimmel London Show off Lip Lacquer in the color Stellar: I’ve reviewed these here and here, but this was my FAVORITE lipstick purchase last summer.  While it can be a tad bit on the messy side, these lacquers put those milani liquid lip color thingies to SHAME!

Price: $4.99

Sold: Here and Walgreens.


Next we have the Maybelline Color Censational Lipstick in the color Coral Lustre 840. This super glossy lipstick packs a mean punch. While it doesn’t have the greatest staying power, and you may need to layer it on to get the full color pay off; it’s super buttery feel and gorgeous sheen makes it all worth it. It’s THE PERFECT peachy nude lippie.

Price: ~$5-$6

Where to buy: Your local drugstore or here


Now you know this list would not be complete without one of my favorite matte pink lippies on the market, Wet n’ Wild’s Mega Last Lipstick 905D “Smokin Hot Pink.” I rave about wet n’ wild mega last lipsticks enough, so I will spare you! But here is what you need to know: They stay on for hours! They are matte! and the best part? They are cheap!

Price: $1.99

Where to buy: Your local drugstore or here


Okay, so this color isn’t bright, but for those days when you want to go bright with your eye makeup, you need a nude to balance everything out. I was anti-nude lipsticks for the longest time, but I’ve actually jumped on the bandwagon as of late. Enter: Wet n’ Wild’s Mega Last lipstick in Mochalicious topped with Black Radiance’s Lipgloss in Cashmere. One word: Gorgeous!

Price: Lipstick: $1.99 Lipgloss: $1.99

Where to buy: Your local drugstore or here and here


I’ve owned OCC Lip Tar in Hoochie for over a year, and it never gets old. It is a BRIGHT Magenta matte liquid lipstick that stays on for hours and hours. No lie. At first, I found OCC liptars to be sooo messy, but I’ve done away with the little brush they come with, and just apply directly to my lips. And, voila! No more mess. These are on the pricier side, so if you don’t mind having to reapply more frequently throughout the day a cheaper alternative to hoochie is Covergirl’s Divine. The colors are very similar, and Divine is just as gorgeous, albeit a bit more on the pink side. You’ll also be saving yourself about $12 if you go with covergirl.

Price: $18

Where to Buy: Here or Here


Wet n Wild’s Purty Persimmon is a gorgeous red based orange lipstick. I’ve tried to wear more orangey orange lipsticks, and they just look ALL wrong on me. Dead wrong. But this? Is perfect, and I guarantee it will look great on ladies of all shades and vareties. It’s also a great dupe for Mac’s Lady Danger. Don’t believe me?
