10 New Lipstick Launches To Get You Out Of That Winter Rut
Give your lips a spring awakening
We’re already a week into March, which means it’s almost spring, and we seriously could not be more excited. We, northeasterners, were teased with warm weather a few weeks back—only to be thrown straight back into the freezing tundra. (We’re definitely still sour about it.)
If there’s one thing that makes us happy and inspires us when we feel that we’re in a rut, it’s makeup. And what could be more exciting than new makeup—particularly lip color? We already rounded up our 35 favorite new spring launches for you, but there are more exciting lipsticks, glosses, and stains that just hit the shelves.
We rounded up the 10 new products and shades that you’ll want to add to your makeup bag stat. Soon enough things will begin to once again warm up, the sun will stay out longer (daylight savings is this weekend, after all), and we’ll finally be able to bust out those spring culottes we bought back in January. Obviously, we're going to need a new lip color to pair them with.

Guerlain, La Petite Robe Noire Universal Tinted Gel, Rosy Cheeks And Lips, $35, available at Sephora.
While this formula may look fluorescent pink out of the bottle (not that that’s an issue or anything), it transforms into a gorgeous sheer, rosy shade once applied to the skin—perfect to achieve that rosy spring glow. The best part? You can use it on your cheeks, too.
