3 Bright Lipsticks for Spring

Bold Lipsticks - Politics of Pretty

I have to admit—my makeup routine has been pretty dismal these last few weeks. Why? I’ve been so caught up testing new products for my skin that I realized the last time I posted a makeup review was February. That, and this past weekend was the first time I put on foundation in about two weeks. But my lips say otherwise.

I love wearing bright lipsticks (yes, lipstick > lipgloss). My lipstick color choices are always rich in bold, vibrant hues and these shades from Scorch Makeup, a new brand I recently discovered, is right up my alley.

Christine Kennedy is the founder and CEO of Scorch Makeup (and also happened to graduate from Loyola College in Maryland, I love beauty locavores!) and she graciously sent me a few lipsticks from her line (all made in the USA and cruelty-free). These tubes are equal parts moisturizing, festive and of course, pretty!

These bright lipsticks from Scorch are great options if you love a fun pop of color. I know some people find a bold lipstick intimidating and a little overwhelming but if I can provide any advice for breaking out of your comfort zone it’s this: go with what makes you smile!
