THE LIST: MORNING BEAUTY’S TOP 12 LIPSTICKS/TINTED LIP BALMS FOR SPRING

During spring, and especially at summer time, we dress differently as the days are much warmer. We also usually change our fragrances to fresher scents, and our makeup goes lighter as well. And it was thinking about how we completely adjust to weather that we asked for 12 brands to recommend us which lipsticks/tinted lip balms should we invest for our new-season beauty kit. After testing several brilliant products, here is Morning Beauty’s selection for you to update your makeup bag.

+ The list: Morning Beauty’s Top 10 Spring Fragrances

  • The newly launched Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm collection, by bareMinerals, has eight gorgeous shades. We selected the Pink Passion (£16), a lovely pink, slightly shiny, which deeply hydrates the lips as it's made with jojoba, passion fruit and sunflower oils. The Pink Passion literally melts during application, and its coverage is sheer-to-medium.

  • Benefit's Fling Thing (£15) is a dazzling light berry that, due to its nourishing texture, has a medium coverage, whereas its finish is silky, almost creamy. Formulated with mango and shea butter, castor seed and sunflower oils, the Fling Thing is part of the brand's Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour collection, which is composed of 10 shades. Its amazingly beautiful packaging, it's worth mentioning, is inspired by the 1920's Art Deco movement.

  • Bourjois' Rouge Edition Aqua Laque lipsticks are glossy, yet not sticky, and offer a medium-full coverage that lasts for hours. It has a shiny finish, and its formula is emulsion-like and fairly moisturising. Bourjois calls it a hybrid lipstick as it combines the properties of a proper lipstick as well as those of a lip gloss and lip balm.We picked the colour 08 Baby Idole (£8.99), a playful bright pink that fits perfectly those days that you're feeling girly.

  • By Terry, the lovely brand founded in 1998 by French makeup artist Terry de Gunzburg, recommended us the Hyaluronic Sheer Nude lipstick in the 2 Innocent Kiss shade. This peachy nude lipstick, which feels almost like a balm, melts easily into the lips, and is deeply hydrating as it's manufactured with hyaluronic acid. It plumps, fills up wrinkles and offers UV protection, and its coverage is quite sheer.

  • Charlotte Tilbury's Sexy Sienna (£23) is an amazingly gorgeous pinky coral. It's highly pigmented and has a matte finish, although its texture is pleasantly creamy. This dazzling shade, which was inspired by alluring actress Sienna Miller, lasts for hours on the lips, and its coverage is buildable. As all Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution lipsticks, the Sexy Sienna coordinates with a signature look – the Golden Goddess –, and it has an exquisite geometric rose gold coloured packaging.

  • Lipstick Queen's recently launched Frog Prince (£22)is just magical. Although its bullet is emerald green, once applied its formulation adapts to the pH levels of the lips, which means that everyone has its own shade of pink. Frog Prince's coverage is lightweight, really natural-looking and also very moisturising as it's enriched with Vitamin E and shea butter. This lovely custom-made and soft-textured lipstick was inspired by fairy tales, such as “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” and “Snow White”, and works perfectly as a gift.

  • The first thing you'll notice about Paul & Joe's makeup range is how beautiful every packaging is. Most of the products are available in refill, so it's possible to choose a different case according to your own taste. The limited edition Menagerie 091 (£12.50) lipstick, which is an elegant coral with medium-full coverage, is no exception as it has a pastel pink flamingo engraved in the tube and three cheerful case options that can be purchased separately (£7 each). Its formula has cocoa butter, orange flower water, lavender and jojoba oils, and its texture is delightfully creamy.

  • Revlon's Ultra HD Lipstick in Hydrangea (£7.99) is a bright, playful pink. Lightweight, yet highly pigmented, its texture is silky, whereas its coverage is medium-full and it lasts for several hours (unless you drink or eat). The Ultra HD Lipstick collection includes 14 shades, each neamed after a flower; they're all wax-free and have a strong fruity fragrance, which is due to a blend of mango and vanilla scents.

  • Available in six stunning shades, Smashbox's Be Legendary new matte lipsticks were developed in partnership with artist Donald Robertson. Although we completely loved the three shades Smashbox recommended us – Punch Drunk Matte, Magenta Matte and Fireball Matte (£16 each) –, we selected the latter, a bold orange that is really well-pigmented and long-lasting. Its finish is shine-free, yet its texture is really creamy as it's formulated with castor seed and chamomile flower oils, and carnauba wax. It's worth mentioning that the sleeve of its packaging is exquisitely illutrated by the already mentioned Donald Robertson (@drawbertson).

  • Blood-red. Stila recommended us the daring Stay All Day Vinyl Lips Gloss in Scarlet (£18), and we loved it. This liquid lipstick is highly pigmented, and has a gorgeous velvety finish that does not leave the lips dried, which is due to ingredients such as seaweed extract and green coffee seed oil (the latter helps stimulating elastin and collagen production).

  • Rouge Volupté Shine in 12 Coral Incandescent (£26), by Yves Saint Laurent, is a deep coral with pinky-reddish undertones. Its texture is silky, quite hydrating, while it has a glossy/wet-looking finish, almost gel-like. Saturated in pigment and very comfortable to apply and wear, it leaves the lips fuller and is long-lasting as well, although it fades a bit after you eat or drink (however it leaves a nice colour stain). The Rouge Volupté Shine in 12 Coral Incandescent has an awesome fruity scent; the collection is composed by 14 shades.
