Lip Service: The Three Lipstick Shades You Need Now

This season, bold lips are set to be big. So give subdued glosses a well-deserved break, start practicing that pout, and invest in these three must-have lipstick shades.

Lipstick Shades for Spring 2014

  1. Electric Orange
    Bright orange shades were all over the S/S 2014 runways – and it’s a trend Hollywood’s hottest starlets have been sporting on every major red carpet. (See: Lupita Nyong’o and Selena Gomez.) Try Lancôme’s Rouge in Love Lipstick in Madame Tulipe and keep the rest of your makeup minimal.
  2. Radiant Orchid
    This hue was dubbed Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, and while you’ve probably seen it on this season’s trending tops and dresses, it also works in makeup form. Turn to Camilla Belle for inspiration and pick up a tube of Sephora+Pantone Universe Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick to execute the look.
  3. Soft Berry
    After being featured on the JOIE runway, this classic shade is making a huge comeback. Look to Micheal Kors GLAM Lip Lacquer in Dame and apply with your ring finger to add color without looking overdone.

Check out each of their stances below, then decide for yourself. (As for me, I’m staying impartial. They are my bosses, after all.)
