Summer is here! It is definitely feeling like summer here in Seattle. It’s been crazy hot here!
It is time to show you my top lipstick picks for the season. I normally wear whatever color I’m feelin’ that day but for some reason I have been leaning towards lots of reds and pinks lately.
This is a must have red lipstick, especially for summer! It’s a bright bold orange-red. It is a matte finish. This one isn’t as dry as other mattes. I think it’s a color that will look great on any skin tone.
This color is perfect for the one’s who don’t prefer orangey-reds. This is described as a “bright pinkish coral.” I simply see it as a neon coral red. It has a retro matte finish so it is a little dryer than the regular mattes.
Ok, YSL will always win for having the most beautiful packaging. This lipstick is part of the Rouge Volupté Shine range. It’s a gorgeous fuchsia color. It looks a lot more purple in the bullet but it’s not. These lipsticks are sheer which is not something I usually go for, but this lipstick is an exception. It is perfect when you’re on the go, very easy to apply, and no lip liner needed. When I do want it to look a little bolder, I line my lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Magenta.
Pinky Promise may just be my favorite pink lipstick! This color is a straight up hot pink. It has a very warm undertone. I really recommend this lipstick. I also own Kiss of Fire which I mentioned in my Spring favorites. This lipstick will last you all day so you wouldn’t have to worry about touching up.
Bella is also a beautiful bright pink. This one has blue undertones. This color was part of their Summer Collection. This formula reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks, but I honestly prefer the Stila. So if you like the ABH lipsticks then you will like these! FYI, if you join Stila’s Email List you can get 20% off your purchase.
It was so hard to choose but I am happy with my choices!
Summer is all about bright colors so go out there, have fun, and rock a bright lip! Let me know what lipsticks you will be wearing!
