Kiss This: 5 Fresh Lipsticks for Spring

One of these shades will make you smile

These days, purses cost almost as much as appliances. Same goes for some designer shoes. But a lipstick–never more than $25–is that one tiny splurge that anyone can justify. And like hemlines and heels, hues and tones are ever-changing.

This spring, the smart set will be pouting in varying shades of pink, nude, red and metallic. Where to begin? Start below, with these trusty hand picked colors. Just remember to always test a shade on your fingertip, rather than the back of your hand, because that skin is closer to that of your pucker.
