So the excitement of Christmas and New Year is officially behind us and since then we have had nothing but cold drastic weather with the snow and I know loads of us have been suffering from colds which has made us all feel a little bit rubbish. However the last few days the sun has been out and the weather has been a bit milder, which I am hoping only means one thing, Spring is well and truly on it's way. I am so ready for the change of Seasons now and with the change of Seasons always comes a change of look - The perfect excuse to buy more beauty products if you ask me. As much as I've been loving the deep rich berry colours on our lips over the Winter, I feel so ready for a change now and I'm over the moon that orange is going to be a big colour for this Spring. What better way to start this repeating trend off with adding a pop of orange on to our lips!
Over the last few days I have completely rekindled my love with Topshop's Rio-Rio lipstick. Now you may look at this and think its more on the red shade, and I would agree and say it's more on the red side, but has the most beautiful orange undertones to it, which makes it the perfect in-between shade.Perfect for those beauties who want a bold lip, but not a go fully out there with a drastic red lip, and perfect for those who want to try orange, but are like me and not brave enough to wear full orange lip. I know how popular orange lipstick has been in the past, especially around the blogosphere with Topshop's Infrared being a firm favourite. But if I am being honest, I've always found the thought of wearing a true orange on my lips a little daunting, so Rio Rio is the perfect shade to go for, especially if your wanting to jump on the orange trend. Rio Rio is a matte lipstick, which is extremely pigmented and really makes your lips stand out, not to mention that it has a lovely creamy formula. There is always that little worry we have with matte lipsticks and the fear that they might be too drying, but I've found Rio Rio a dream to apply and it lasts on the lips for hours, fading only to leave lovely stained lips. There is something special about the formula of this lipstick as I find that bleeding or smudging rarely occurs and there have been plenty of times I've worn it without pairing it with a red lip liner. In the pictures I have used Barry M's red lip liner, just to define my lips a bit more, but you really don't need it.
I know that this is soon going to be my go-to lipstick again and I can see me wearing this all the way till Summer as you will find that it looks amazing when you have a tan! There is something that get's me all excited about Rio Rio and I am loving the new change on my lips. If your wanting to pick this up you can find it on the Topshop website here, it retails for £8.00 and is worth every penny... I love it!
Have you changed your lippie for Spring ladies? I would love to know what your go to shade is going be.
