One of the easiest (and best) ways to get pumped for a new season, IMO, is by switching up your color palette. And if you're ready to start subbing some new shades into your makeup bag, your spring 2017 lipstick picks might look a little different than previous years. Because instead of classic pinks and pastels (although, let's be honest, those shades will always work), this spring is taking a slightly more unconventional path with its makeup trends. I'm talking unexpected neutrals and brights from greiges, mauves, and taupes, to blues and greens. Oh yeah, this spring is about to get edgy.
So if you're looking to add some of these hues to your beauty routine, fear not, you won't have to look far. Plenty of brands from both the department stores and the drugstores have released their takes on these editorial lipstick shades. Oh yeah— you'll want to free up some space on your swatching arm for your next shopping escapade. But if you're not quite sure where to start looking, how about here? I've rounded up 15 of the most exciting new lines and shades (and even some old favorites that still fit the bill) that you'll definitely want to try. The only question now is: Which one will you rock first?
Brown is still in, and whether you take it with a pinch of gray, mauve, or berry, it's perfect for spring.
