Top 5 Lipsticks For Summer


Lipsticks are one of my favourite items of makeup, and in the summertime I love a slick of lipstick on my lips. Pink lippy is my favourite shade to wear, so I’ve rounded up five of my must have lipsticks for this summer.

Lime Crime - Pink Velvet Velvetine

Lime Crime – Pink Velvet Velvetine: This beautiful bright pink lipstick is the perfect colour for wearing out on a hot summers night. The Velvetines are applied like a liquid, and after a few minutes they dry to a beautiful matte finish. This liquid lipstick is extremely pigmented and it doesn’t take many layers to build up a gorgeous opaque colour on the lips. Once dry, these liquid lippys do not budge – which makes them perfect for wearing out for dinner or drinks!

Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm Stain in Elusive

Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm Stain in ElusiveI am IN LOVE with the matte balms, and I think Revlon have created a fantastic product here. My favourite shade right now is Elusive, it’s a beautiful dusky pink, that offers a velvety matte finish. The colour is so versatile and looks beautiful with a wide range of makeup looks and outfit choices. These are extremely long wearing, and not even the least bit drying, so are the perfect addition to the makeup collection this summer.

MAC - Coral Bliss

MAC – Coral Bliss – This is a stunning peachy-pink shade, that looks gorgeous against bronzed summer skin. It’s a Creamsheen lipstick which means that while it is slightly sheerer in colour, it is a rich creamy formula that feels very moisturising on the lips. I love this colour for daytime wear as it is so soft and pretty, with a glossy finish.


Karen Murrell – Camellia MorningThese beautiful lipsticks are made in New Zealand from natural ingredients, and are considered to be vegetarian lipsticks. Camellia Morning is one of my absolute favourite shades from the new “Summer Bouquet” collection. It’s a stunning cerise pink shade that is universally flattering. It’s the perfect transition shade from day to night, and one of my most versatile lipsticks.

MAC – Full Speed sheen

MAC – Full SpeedAnother versatile lipstick for summer, Full Speed, is a bold, warm-toned pink with a gorgeous semi-glossy finish. This lipstick is a Sheen Supreme formula, and since it contains Shea Butter, it is quite moisturising while not compromising on pigmentation. I love this shade for both daytime and night time wear, and think it is an absolute must have this summer!
