Top Summer Lipsticks

June 4, 2015


When it comes to lip colors, it can be tricky to find the perfect one.  Not only do you need a flattering color, but the formulation needs to be smooth, it can’t be too drying and it must be long wearing!  Sounds like a lot, right?!  Through a lot of trial and error {aka a lot of lipstick wearing ;) } I’ve found my top summer lipsticks {and one gloss} that are on constant rotation during the warmer months!


Peach:  Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom in Peach Poppy

Peach is a super tricky lip color, because they can easily wash you out or turn too orange.  The Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom lipstick in Peach Poppy is the perfect shade of peach, and is an amazing formula!  Plus, these lipsticks are inexpensive from the drugstore and have amazing pigmentation.  If you’ve been looking for a subtle lip color that goes well with a tan, this is your lipstick!


Fuchsia:  MAC Girl About Town

While I love this shade all year long, I especially fall in love with it during the warmer months.  Girl About Town from MAC is absolutely stunning, and it lasts all. day. long!  It goes on incredibly smoothly, and the finish is perfect for the warm weather.  This is one of my go-to shades, and it is one of the most universally flattering lipstick shades you can find!


Coral:  Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom in Coral Burst

If there’s any color that screams summer, it’s coral!  With a tan, you just can’t beat a beautiful coral lip shade.  The Coral Burst shade from the Maybelline Rebel Bloom line is absolutely fabulous without being too orange or too red.  I love wearing coral lips for the summer, and this is one you should definitely pick up next time you’re at the drugstore!


Pink:  NYX Butter Gloss in Merengue

Even though this technically isn’t a lipstick, the NYX Butter Glosses are so pigmented that they might as well be in the same category!  For a classic pink, you really cannot go wrong with the NYX Butter Gloss in Merengue for that perfect “your lips but better” pink shade.  It’s incredibly easy to use, and they taste like a cupcake {YUM}.

Alright, time to dish… what are your favorite summer lip products?!  Which of these is your favorite?  I’m dying to know, so let me know in the comments or over on Instagram! :)
