Summer makes me think of walking barefoot, wearing summer dresses and shorts, and eating watermelon and ice cream. Recently, summer also makes me think of corals, peaches, and soft pinks. These could be blushes, lipsticks, or glosses. Today I'm taking you through a few of my favourite summer lipsticks.
From left to right: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in "05 Olé flamingo!", Maybelline ColorSensational in "904 Vivid rose", The Body Shop Color Crush Lipstick in "18 Sunset Romance", Stila in "Amelia", Rubybox Smooch Stick in "Tangerine Tango", Topshop Lip Bullet in "Wine Gum".
I've spoken about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet here. I wore it again over the weekend and it's such a fabulous product. It stays put through wedding toasts and big dinners, and the next day I still had a stain on my lips! It's a bright and punchy pink and the formula is creamy and non-drying which is amazing for a matte lip colour.
The Maybelline ColorSenstional in "Vivid Rose" is an underrated lipstick and as you can see it's a gorgeous bright pink. It dries out my lips slightly, so I just apply it over a thin layer of lip balm and I'm good to go.
The Body Shop Color Crush range is quite good, especially the new colour additions. I especially love this "my lips but better" shade which is a peachy nude and applies quite sheer.
This Stila lipstick in the shade "Amelia" has been laying on my dressing table for ages and I don't know why I haven't used it more. It's incredibly minty and fresh and the colour is a gorgeous dirty pink. It looks a bit more natural on the lips than in the tube and I love the minty smell.
Rubybox's Smooch Sticks are slim "chubby" sticks and perfect for popping in your handbag. I love this bright orange shade called "Tangerine Tango". It's not for the faint of heart, but looks beautiful with tanned skin. It's creamy and doesn't dry out your lips.
The last lippie on the list is this Lip Bullet from Topshop. If you like MAC's bright pinks with blue undertones, then you'll love "Wine Gum". It's a bright pink and the formula is super creamy. It wears well, but the colour is not for the faint of heart!

Until next time!
