Starting with a classic, light, baby pink the first color you see on the bottom of my hand is Pink Sand from La Bella Donna. This is the ideal springtime classic baby pink shade. This is definitely a go to, everyday shade that can go with any look. La Bella Donna is a mineral line of makeup so it is of course healthy and flawless. This lipstick is rich and creamy and has a satin appearance on the lips. It also contains vitamin C and ceramide 2, which is designed to keep the lips smooth as well as protects from the suns damaging UV rays.

The next color you see after Pink Sand moving up on my hand is getting into the bold, bright colors. This color is from the MAC VIVA GLAM collection by Nicki Manaj and the color is called Nicki. (Every cent of your purchase for this lipstick is donated to help men, women and children living with or affected by HIV and AIDS.) This is your scene stealing, fun, bright, bold pink that you can pair with a nude eye and call it a day.  This one can make even the hottest spring nights even spicier! This color is a little bit more matte on the lips leaving room for you to pair with a gloss if you’d like.

Getting even bolder the next two colors you see are from Maybelline’s new line of Colorsensational Vivids. An even brighter pinkish coral and a screaming bright orange that are exceptional for the statement makers. Shocking Coral 870 and Electric Orange 880 are sure to turn up the springtime heat. Containing honey nectar these lip colors are nourishing and creamy with a satin finish.

The last color you see on the top of my hand is from Aveda and is a color I have had around for a year. I have worn this color year round and have always received compliments whenever I sport it. The color is called Star Coral 903 and is from their Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color Collection. This is that perfect coral color that isn’t too orangey or pinky or too red.  This is a pure deeper coral tone. Aveda is another natural line of lip colors that contains not only stellar color selections, but also has dual benefits for the lips. 75% of women who tested this lipstick found their lips to be fuller after just two weeks. Not only can you have a sassy lip color but with this lipstick you can get sexier lips as well!
