Spring Lipstick Picks: Jelly (Bean) Shades


It's spring here! It's warmed up considerably, the cherry blossoms are blooming, and I've dived into Easter candy.
Sour Patch Kid jelly beans, you guys. YES.

Also, jelly (bean) lipsticks - lipsticks in cheerful, bright (but not neon, with the exception of MAC Toxic Tale) shades that have a nice, glossy, jelly finish. Er, again, with the exception of Toxic Tale - it's a matte. And way bright. The others are softer, less saturated shades in their respective color families.
L-R: Clinique Flirty Honey Αlmost Lipstick, MAC Crosswires, Dior Addict Extreme in Délice, Shu Uemura Sweet Devil Rouge, MAC Toxic Tale.

I just picked up MAC Crosswires as my Back to MAC lipstick, but it's exactly the kind of coral-pink-red-je-ne-sais-quoi shade I lacked. It's a cremesheen and the texture is tolerable, though not the most comfortable (almost a bit sticky). It's standard MAC fare, though, I think, and it was free!

Are you feeling sheer or jelly lipstick finishes right now? What's your favorite Easter candy?
