Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite summer lipsticks. Recently I wrote a post about how I was having a totally un-seasonal obsession with dark lippies, and had just purchased my first ever MAC lipstick in 'Rebel' which is a deep purple colour and just beautiful. However, now that the sun is beginning to show it's face I'm finding myself drawn back to the old bright and cheerful favourites.
First up is the Clinique Chubby Stick. It's actually a mini version that I got for free when I was buying some Clinique foundation a while ago. I wasn't that fussed about it at first but for the last few weeks I've been really loving it as a day-to-day, wear-to-work, kind of lippy. It's a subtle colour that brightens up my face without looking too 'out there', plus it's sooo creamy and moisturising. What's not to love?
Next is basically a Revlon dupe of the Chubby stick, only it's full sized and a much brighter colour. I review this lippy a few months ago which you can read here. I love the bright pink colour, it's just perfect for summer. Love love love.
The two Topshop lipsticks I've included are 'Macaroon' and 'Infrared'. The former is a corally pink colour which I love for summer because it's beachy and lovely. 'Infrared' on the other hand is a bright orange, and when I say bright I mean BRIGHT. I've never owned an orange lipstick before but the other day when I was wandering around Topshop I decided that I definitely needed one in my life. I have big plans to wear this orange lippy all summer long, so watch this space.
Finally we have the L'Oreal lip butter. I bought this because the girl on the advert had such gorgeous lips and looked really amazing and I thought hey, I wanna look like that. Great advertising there, L'Oreal, well done. It's a bright pink colour but it's quite sheer so you can build up the colour depending on how you're feeling that day. It's perfect on a hot day with a dewy complexion and a cute little summer dress.
So those are my favourite Spring / Summer lippies at the moment. As you can see I like pink. A lot. But I'm mixing it up a bit this year with pretty corals and brave oranges, too. I've swatched the colours below (in the same order as the first photo) and you can probably see me wearing most of these lippies in my outfit photos!
What are your favourite lipsticks for Summer?
