Merle Norman Bright Spring Lip Colors

Coral Chic, Cameo Shrimp, Life's a Peach, Raspberry on Ice, Modern Princess

spring is in full bloom here in Denver. the trees are finally blossoming, the makeup is brightening and the white denim is beginning to show its face.

during fall and winter i tend to stick to glosses. i avoid going to too dark on my lips and nudes are my bff's. during spring and summer i flip the switch. bright pinks, sunny corals and barbie doll hues are the go-to's in my makeup drawer. there are few things i love more than a bright lip during summer.

i'm not exaggerating.

the colors you choose to wear evoke emotions, whether it is playful neons, powerful oranges or electric hot pinks. your color choice lends to what you are feeling.

Merle Norman sent me a gorgeous selection of pinks and corals to get my spring started off right. the glosses are long lasting and don't feather, a great bonus during warm weather. the lipsticks are a creamy formulation that glide on smooth and last. combine the two together and you will have the perfect color for spring.

my favorite of the group was definitely the Cameo Shrimp - the brightest color of them all. what does that say about my mood or my emotion? slightly overbearing, a bit obnoxious and overly friendly. i'll let you be the judge.

Cameo Shrimp


  1. Wow!!! I have to say, it definitely doesn't look like my grandma's merle norman!

  2. wow, they all look gorgeous! I love the looks of the lip glosses!

  3. WOW! I am loving that color although I have to admit that I can't stand the thought of having a fish name for a lipstick. I tried their lip gloss a few years ago and was taken aback by how beautiful the color was- apparently they use car paint technology in their lipgloss to get it to sparkle a certain way. Not quite sure how that works but it was super pretty!
