As you may have noticed, makeup this spring is all about colour; adding bright pops of it into your look is a really easy way to update for the new season and freshen up. The new L’Oreal Paris Infallible Paints Lip are a surefire way to inject a little more of this springtime trend into your look without having to go too far out of your comfort zone.

Available in a variety of shades ranging from deep plums to neutral nudes to popping pinks, with a side of bold (there’s a killer navy shade available, not pictured here), they’ve created a really nice selection of shades to flatter different styles and skintones. I’ve personally been on a bit of a nude kick and have been loving lip shades with a bit of a dusty rose feel, so Nude Star (312) has been a favourite of mine. When I feel like being a bit bolder, I also like to swipe a bit of Sultry Sangria (326) on.

The lip paints come with a curved applicator with a bit of a pointed tip, so application is really comfortable and it’s easy to perfect your lines. I’m a big fan of the formulation of these; they’re creamy and soft, so your lips never feel dried out. They have a soft, slightly shiny finish that gives the lips a bit of a plump look.

Another win with these comes with their pigmentation. The colour is exactly what you would expect from looking at the tubes, and they provide really strong colour that blends easily. Some of the darker shades can be a bit streaky if you apply a little heavily, but they can be easily blended by patting with your finger or a tissue.

Colour addict? You’re going to love the new Maybelline New York Color Jolts. I first spotted these backstage at Toronto Fashion Week (RIP) back in the spring and immediately knew that I was going to have to give them a try. Fast forward to a few months later and you can imagine my excitement when a few of them found their way into my mailbox.

These bold lip paints are unbelievably pigmented and completely opaque (they’re said to have 8 times more pigment than the typical gloss), making them ideal for someone who is looking for colour; I’m a big fan of letting the colour of a lip product speak for itself, and I’m really happy to say that these live up to their name. Maybelline has managed to pack a ton of colour into a small package (I wish they were a little bigger as I’m sure I’ll go through them in no time!).

When it comes to formula, I think these find a perfect balance between giving bold, long-lasting colour payoff and a comfortable, wearable feel. The Color Jolts are creamy, with a non-sticky feel that hydrates while you wear, and a hint of shine. I find that I can throw one on before I head out for the day and it will last for a few hours before I have to reapply, with some transfer when I eat or drink.

Although I usually go for the deeper red shades, I have to say I’ve really been loving Stripped Down for the past couple of weeks – it’s a killer nude with just a hint of pink that looks natural and enhances a fresh face.

One of the downsides with this product? Right now, there are only 8 shades available; I’m a really big fan of these and I’m hoping that they continue to expand on the line.

I know, you’re already a boss lady, but sometimes the right lipstick can just give you that little bit of edge that makes you feel like you’re ready to kick ass. I find that a killer lipstick shade has this amazing ability to change your attitude; whether you’re having a bad day, not feeling so hot, or are getting ready for that big presentation, it can help give you this little boost of confidence.

I’ve rounded up 5 lipsticks that are going to put you in the mood to take on the day – and the world. So take your pick, put it on, and tell yourself you’ve got this.

  1. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in Rouge Charnel Sometimes you just need a good red to instill a little confidence, and Chanel knows reds like no other. This matte, deep red will have you feeling great as soon as you put it on. Coco Chanel put it best: “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.”
  2. Maybelline New York Loaded Bolds in Rebel Pink – Make a statement with this bold fuchsia. I think it’s safe to say that you’ll command attention and show that you play by your own rules with this shade on your lips.
  3. Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge in c506 (Click here for swatches!) – This deep berry shade is as sophisticated as it is fierce. Packed with colour, this lipstick lasts, so you don’t have to worry about touch ups as you build your empire.
  4. Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Bawse – This liquid lipstick, created in collaboration with YouTube star Lilly Singh, could not have been any more appropriately named. The lightweight, matte lipstick is a stunner, with extremely long-lasting colour (I’ve put it to the test), and it honestly looks amazing on everyone. Total win.
  5. Lipstick Queen Eden Lipstick (at Murale) – This gorgeous red (with, yes, a subtle hint of green shimmer) will have you looking and feeling fresh. The shade is instantly brightening and deeply moisturizing so your lips feel comfortable and soft the entire time you wear it.

Your lips are going to love you for this one. I know I’m not alone in being excited by the new Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge lipstick collectio ($27 CAD ea); first of all, MUFE is king when it comes to colour, and this 45 shade collection is no exception. Secondly, they know what they’re doing when it comes to creating artist-quality product, as we’ve seen over the years.

As mentioned, the curated collection features 45 gorgeous shades (31 creams and 14 mattes), which cover a full range of nudes, reds, pinks, berry and, in true Make Up For Ever fashion, a selection of artistic shades (including blues, pastels shades, and darks).

The pointed teardrop applicator makes precise application easy, which is a good thing as there isn’t a lot of room for mistakes. These lipsticks are fully opaque and very pigmented, which means you get full colour – perfect for a lipstick fanatic. The formula for both the creams and mattes are smooth, non-drying and long-lasting; once they’re on, they’ll last for about 8-10 hours before you need to reapply, though you will have some transfer.

To make things easier, they’ve also pulled the perfect shades for each skin tone (a nude, red, pink, berry and artistic – each listed in that order):

  • Light: M100, C404, C205, M102, C603
  • Medium: C105, C405, M202, M501, C304
  • Tan: M101, M401, C206, M500, C502
  • Dark: C107, M402, C207, C506, C600, C503

They’ve also created C211, a universally flattering rosy shade.
