Makeup | Perfect lipstick for Spring.

I remember the day I bought this lipstick last year and how excited I was to try it out. I haven't really used it much over the winter period because I much prefer darker colours during this time. However, with Spring only round the corner I have already placed it back in my day to day make up bag.

This is the Max Factor lipstick in 'English Rose' priced at £6.99.

As you can see from the photo, the colour is a beautiful pink with silver shimmer. I think its such a feminine colour and is so easy to wear on a day to day basis, but also great to wear on a night out if you have quite heavy eye make up (smoky eye). The lipstick itself is moisturising, however doesn't last as long as I had hoped. I'd say if you were eating and drinking, you'd have to reapply the lipstick to keep up the colour. However, this doesn't bother me too much as I'd happily quickly reapply it throughout the day.

For me I don't think the colour is as full on as other lipsticks because of the shimmer. In that respect I'd say it reminds me of Revlon's lip butters because of their glossiness and that they give a subtle colour rather than being bold. I'm definitely looking forward to being able to start wearing this colour again, I think its definitely affordable and when I run out I will be repurchasing without a doubt.

What is your favourite Spring lipstick?
