Favorite Lipsticks for Summer-2015

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.

MAC- Lady Danger

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.

MAC- Relentlessly Red

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.

YSL- 19 Fuchsia in Rage

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.  

Dose of Colors- Pinky Promise

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.

Stila- Bella

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!
