Don’t go shopping for spring lipstick shades before reading this!

The birds are singing, the sun has re-emerged and your makeup bag is about to heat up. Spring has officially arrived so we’re taking a moment to shout out the best lipstick shades for this season. The right lipsticks can set the overall tone of your spring beauty game so choosing your best shades are like deciding on the key pieces of your seasonal wardrobe–high stakes and with a big payoff. Luckily for you, we’ve scoured the red carpets, runways and social feeds to bring you 7 spring lipstick shades you won’t want to miss out on. So buckle up and get ready to shop for the best spring lipstick has to offer.

  1. Cherry Cola Lips

Chances are you’ve already hit the like button on spring’s hottest lip trend: #CherryColaLips. We can’t say we’re surprised that millions of people have already favorited this spring lip look on TikTok. The brown-meets-red shade literally suits every skin tone. Get the look with three key lip products: the perfect brown plumping lip liner, a shiny true-red lipstick and red gloss overtop for an added vinyl effect. 

  1. Angel Pink

A beloved 90s lip look, frosted pink lips, now known as angel pink, are once again trending. They’re fun, flirty and low maintenance so we get the appeal. The best part is, with plumping benefits, frosted pink lip color (in shade Couldn’t Caratless) has never looked so good. You can even apply this luminous balm (that has the precision shape of a lipstick bullet) straight from the tube for a soft focus filter effect–no mirror or liner required.

  1. Popsicle Orange

Name a more iconic happy hue than bright orangey-red (go ahead, we’ll wait). Popsicle-worthy pouts are trending this spring, thanks to their face-brightening effect. Allure dubbed this look (seen at Christian Siriano’s spring 2023 runway show) as Focal Point Lipstick and we couldn’t agree more. Wear this liquid lip color in shade Never Let You Down with minimal makeup and curled lashes for a spring-loaded pop of color.

  1. Mauve

You can’t go wrong with a classic spring lipstick shade like mauve because it hits all the right notes. No wonder it’s a fave of celebs like Rihanna and more recently Taylor Swift (Lavendar Haze, anyone?). This mauve lipstick (in shade Mystic Lavendar) feels fresh for spring because it stands out among a sea of soft pinks and neutrals and it can also be worn softly as a pastel or boldly as a statement lip.

  1. Rosy Brown

Sure, Hailey Bieber and the clean girl aesthetic put pinkish-brown lipstick on the trend map but arguably, this is just another 90s trend making a comeback. Drawing inspo from the natural color of lips, rosy brown lipstick (in shade Divine Femininity) strikes the perfect balance of pink and brown. It can be dressed up or down and works for any occasion making it the most versatile spring lipstick shade trend.

  1. Fuchsia

Let’s face it, fuchsia lipstick isn’t for the faint of heart but that’s just the point. When you really want to make a bold beauty statement with your spring lipstick, reach for this fuchsia shade. The formula’s creamy texture and hyaluronic acid will make your lips looks smooth, plump and super pretty.

  1. Glossy Red

Vinyl lips punctuated the spring runway beauty trends with red leading the way at shows like Moschino and Miu Miu. We love the idea of glossy red for spring since it’s a bit unexpected (no, it’s not just for the holidays!) and gives instant main character energy. It’s also just the thing for your classic spring whites and understated spring eye makeup looks. Get the vinyl look by pairing this statement red (in shade Queen of Hearts) with this clear plumping gloss overtop.
