Spring 2012 Lip Color Trends

by Angel

Spring lip color trends for 2012 are very natural this year with Nude Mattes and Glossy Pinks. Sephora has the top colors in each category.

Nude Mattes and Glossy Pinks are in for Spring 2012. This gives you the opportunity to play up your eyes while playing down your lips with these two great neutral shades. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and primed prior to applying lip stick or lip gloss. It makes such a world of difference in the staying power of your lip product. Sephora has many suggested colors for the Spring 2012 trend. I have also listed a couple of my favorites. Get your Spring Look here.

Nude Mattes

Picking a matte lipstick can be tricky. So many of them dry your lips out and are not fun to wear at all. These picks from Sephora will change your mind about matte lipsticks all together. They are moisturizing and full of nude color.

NARS Pure Matte – Madere

Hydrates while providing a super matte look. It moisturizes and soothes while providing a very nice neutral color onto your lips. Comes packaged in a slim stick design.  


Makeup Forever – Rouge Artist Intense - #22 Satin Nude

This is a highly pigmented nude lipstick. It has 50% more pigment in it than other lipsticks. One stroke will give you all the color you need. It is formulated without parabens. Available in matte, pearly, and satin finishes.


Tart Lip Surgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in Exposed

Tarte Lip Surgence is a peppermint infused, moisturizing lip tint. A touch of color that stays on without the fuss of lipstick.


Glossy Pinks


Nothing is more feminine than glossy pink lip gloss.  By far my most favorite color when it comes to lip gloss is pink.  Take a look at some of Sephora's top sellers in this Spring 2012 trend.  

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Cream in White Russian

Tingly color without the shimmer is what this lip cream provides. Vitamins A and E help lips stay subtle. The tingling sensation reminds you it is still there on your lips.


Dior Addict Lipstick in Urban 178


This hydrating lip color was inspired by runway fashions of DIOR.


Yves Saint Laurent in #18

Provides the same luxurious texture of a lip gloss with the long wear of a stain. The color melts onto your lips. The special slant applicator provides for a perfect application every time.   


My Picks

I have had a very good experience with these neutral shade products and would like to add them to the list.  You won't be disappointed with any of these.

Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Peroxide and Wallflower

This is one of my favorite lip glosses and thought it should be included in the top picks for glossy pinks. It is very shiny without being too sticky. The vanilla mint flavor is great too.

       Peroxide              Wallflower


NARS Lip Gloss in Tempest

NARS lip gloss is a very pigment dense product. There is a lot of color with this gloss. I have used NARS for a long time and am always pleased with how long it stays on and the color that is applied to my lips. Great choice for lip gloss if you                   like color with your gloss.

@pinkchic18 - Aren't they all such great colors? They go with everything and with everyone's skin tone. Nice to have a color in your pocketbook that you can throw on whenever you need to and not worry about it matching so much. Thanks for stopping in.

Katie - these colors will go with so many different skin tones and hair colors. I love to wear my nude and pink colors every day. I usually throw on the darker lip colors if we are going out at night.
