When it comes to makeup I've always had a thing for lip products, probably something about all the colors and textures to choose from. With spring right around the corner, I decided it was time for some new additions to liven up the ole lip drawer at home. I went with 5 picks from the Drugstore, and I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised how much I like these already.
SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM
These actually aren't new, but Target now has a small section of NYX so I always take a look. I saw these and thought, yes- spring! I picked up the shades Antwerp (left) and Addis Ababa (right).
This formula is comfortable, long-wearing, and ulta offers over 20 shades to choose from.
NYX MATTE LIPSTICK
A few moments later, my eyes traveled down a couple of shelves and landed on the matte lipsticks. Again, Target doesn't offer the full color range like ulta, (30+ shades), but a good range of tones nonetheless. I went with the shade Indie Flick, a vibrant red-orange lipstick perfect for making a statement this spring,
MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL - THE BUFFS
I was originally browsing these lipsticks because of Tamira's post here. They were out of Truffle Tease, so I opted for Touchable Taupe (left) and Blushing Beige (right). I'm especially excited about Blushing Beige, I'm a sucker for nudes. I will definitely be picking up more of these.

Touchable Taupe, Antwerp, Addis Ababa, Blushing Beige, Indie Flick (on the bottom).
BRING ON SPRING! I am so ready for warmer, brighter days. Plus, I love seeing the makeup trends change throughout the seasons.
Spring/Summer makeup trends usually involve fresh dewy skin, natural contours, and pops of color. These new lip colors will be perfect!
