This Spring’s Trendiest Lipstick Colours


With spring in the air, we’re itching to play with colour, and picking up a new shade (or two or three!) of lipstick is an easy and commitment-free way to experiment with trends, and freshen up your look. For the inside scoop on this season’s hottest lip looks, we called the experts at MAC St. Vital Centre, who know makeup trends better than anybody. From sunkissed coral to shimmering nude, here are their picks for the prettiest lip colours this spring.

Is it possible to have a crush on a lipstick? We certainly think so. This crush-worthy coral shade just begs to be worn to a pool party or brunch date. Even if you’re not generally a fan of pastels, you can’t go wrong with peach lipstick, since it flatters nearly every skin tone. The cremesheen formula is infused with pearlized pigments that give it that pretty, slightly glossy finish. We love how this lipstick doesn’t compete with your eye makeup, complimenting anything from a dramatic smoky eye to ‘60s-eque winged liner.

Girl About Town
Now is the perfect time to go out and find a bold lip colour. May we recommend a playful shade of fuschia? Just like the name suggests, this lipstick was made for the girl who isn’t afraid to make a statement. The great thing about this formula is that it applies streak free, and won’t bleed or slide around throughout the day. As an added bonus, it has flattering blue undertones, which will help your teeth look extra white! A fun pop of color during the day, or a sexy nighttime shade – the choice is yours, girl about town. ;)

Viva Glam V
Every gal needs a go-to nude in her collection, and this is one of the prettiest options out there. The Viva Glam line is constantly updating, and this unique, pinky-beige colour is very on-trend, and one of our favourites so far. It has tiny flecks of gold shimmer that catch the light and add a bit of dimension to the lips. And did you know that MAC donates 100% of the purchase price from its Viva Glam line to the MAC Aids Fund? How glam is that!
