Ever wished you looked a little more like Kate Moss? Here’s your chance. With the spring collection from Rimmel London, the supermodel launched Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss ($5.20, ulta.com), the first lipstick collection featuring her favorite shades. We love 01, a deep brick red color, but there are 5 other fabulous, moisturizing shades to choose from.
Bold Lipstick Is The Hot New Accessory
If you’re looking for something a little more natural this season, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care’s got you covered. The Inner Glow lipstick collection ($23.95, Drhauschka.com) is made of five warm shades and contains organic Castor Seed Oil that moisturizes and protects lips against harsh elements.

The ever-so-chic Rachel Zoe has done it again! This season she reveals two new sultry lipglosses and a trendy coral lip crème, all of which we’re dying to add to our spring collection. Because of its original colors, Rachel Zoe’s Exude Spring 2012 Selects ($29, Exudelipstick.com) is the one brand you won’t want miss out on this season.

For those of you who avoid lipstick because of its horrible dehydrating element, avoid no more. New Lip Cover lipsticks from Burberry ($27, Saksfifthavenue.com) are light and moisturizing as they’re packed with oils and light waxes that make application easy and smooth. Oh, and we couldn’t ignore the cute packaging–the lid is a fancy metallic that snaps shut.
Celebrity Beauty Trends We Wish Were A Joke
When your lips need a little nutrition, try the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Collection ($19, Sephora.com) for a major vitamin C and E boost. The selection of colors feels endless, but what we really love about this product is how creamy it feels and how sheer it goes on. These lipsticks are ideal for the woman who wants a little color but doesn’t want to go too bold.
Are You Ready To Become A Lipstick Lover, Too?
Truth be told, MAC has never disappointed us when it comes to texture and color. But this season, they’ve outdone themselves. We absolutely love MAC Scarlet Ibis matte lipstick ($14.40, Maccosmetics.com), a bright red, creamy shade with an orange tint. The best part? We didn’t have to re-apply the color all evening.

Here’s why we love L’Oreal Le Gloss 8hr Lip Gloss in Pink Topaz ($8, Drugstore.com): it works on women of all ages. Though the gloss looks very pigmented in the bottle, this shade comes on rather sheer and leaves your lips with hours of glossy, moisturized color. Moms and daughters, this one is to share.

With spring comes fresh starts (read: fresh, clean looking faces). Our favorite fresh face of the season? Emma Watson. As the new Lancôme ambassador, the Harry Potter starlet has rocked the sweetest, most feminine looking color this spring: the feather light, Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipcolor ($25, Lancome-usa.com).
Emma Watson’s DIY Makeup
Fact: two lip colors for the price of one is always a best-case scenario. Thanks to Covergirl, this fantasy is finally coming true. Blast Flipstick Lipcolor ($9, Ulta.com) contains two shades, one creamy and one shimmery that go on super smoothly. For the best effect, layer one on top of the other.
How To Look Instantly Younger
For the woman who loves her pastels, try Shiseido’s Shimmering Rouge in Opal ($25, Shiseido.com). A pale pink color with a decent amount of shimmer, this lipstick will work with just about any spring makeup look. The added bonus is that it leaves your lips feeling hydrated and looking fuller.
