Spring Makeup: Light Pink Lipgloss

Yesterday I wrote about one of my favourite spring makeup trends—purple pastel eyeshadow. What better to compliment pretty purple lids than a light pink gloss on the lips?
The following pink glosses are my top picks for the season and it just so happens that they are all from Bare Escentuals.

*100% Natural Lipgloss in 7 Layer Cake*
7 Layer Cake is  a pink mist colour with very fine baby pink shimmers. It is very sheer and gives the lips a soft glaze. It’s perfect for daytime and works great over lipstick.

*Buxom Lipgloss in Katie*
Like 7 Layer Cake, Katie is a very pale pink. However, it has a light lavender iridescence that makes it very unique and gives the lips a glowy ethereal look.
*Buxom Lipgloss in Bunny*
Bunny is a sheer pink with fine silver shimmers. It adds a light pink lustre to the lips that looks natural and pretty. It makes the skin look fresh and glowy when paired with a rosy pink blush.

*100% Natural Lipgloss in Wild Honey*
Wild Honey adds an understated metallic shine to the lips with its gold-pearl tones and pretty pink base. It can give the entire complexion a bronzy glow.

*Buxom Lipgloss in Trixie*
Trixie is another colour that gives the lips that golden pink lustre. It has slight lavender tones and looks less metallic on the lips than Wild Honey does. It is one of my favourite Buxom glosses.
*100% Natural Lipgloss in Heartcake*
A gorgeous rosy pink colour, Heartcake brightens the complexion and gives the lips a pretty sheen that is perfect for day or even a night out.
*100% Natural Lipgloss in Strawberry Creme*
Strawberry Creme is a pretty pink with slight purple undertones. It makes the lips glow with subtle pink and gold shimmers.

*100% Natural Lipgloss in Strawberry Shortcake*
Strawberry Shortcake is like a shimmer-less version of Strawberry Creme. It has those slight purple undertones but is completely free of shimmer.

*Buxom Lipgloss in Rosie*
Rosie is a ballerina pink colour that is also free of shimmer. This gloss came in the Buxom Babes flower girls kit, a set that includes four spring-appropriate glosses in shades of pink, peach, and purple.
Which light pink glosses are your favourites for spring?
