It’s August! I.E. my birthday month(!) but also the last month of summer 😦
To make the most of the last of the glorious sun, I’ve compiled a list of my all-time favourite lipsticks that I wear in summer.
This is a Beauty Bay lipstick in the colour Coral Blush. This needs a bit of a build up to achieve the colour above on your lips, however I like this as it means I can get a variety of intensity from it. I usually wear this as the main focus of my face so will usually use a nude eye with it.
This is one of the ever popular Rimmel Colour Rush crayons. An easy application and highly pigmented makes it a bright pop of colour, perfect for the summer. I am afraid it is quite old and has had a bit of wear so I don’t know what specific colour this one is, sorry!
This Gell Hi Shine crayon from Barry M has a very similar application to the Rimmel stick above. This is a coral shade that has a shiny finish so again, draws attention to the lips and keeps them feel smooth. Again I’m sorry but I don’t know which shade this is, I think it is called Sigma but not 100% sure!
This is Peach Blossom from Mac. A simple and fresh shade with a pinky hue. It is an understated colour which is why I like to wear it on summer days that I wish to make my eyes the main focus as it doesn’t draw a huge amount of attention. Of course, all Mac lippies have great quality so you can never go wrong with one!
One of my all-time favourtie lipsticks, I have the matching lipgloss in this shade too. This is 832 Kiss Peal of the Colour Sensation range. A pink shimmer that catches the light and doesn’t need much reapplication. I love this hue as it instantly reminds me of summer and is a classic shade.
Another lip crayon, this time from the Miss Sporty Instant Colour & Shine range. This is in the colour Pink Popsicle. I bought this last year and at one point I wore it nearly everyday through a whole month! It is a subtle colour with one or two layers however, like the Beauty Bay lipstick, can be built up to achieve a bright pop of pink. This colour speaks for itself and is a classic colour. I would be careful when applying it as the actual crayon is delicate and can break easily.
A darker shade for the evenings, this is another Mac lipstick in the colour Craving. It is an amplified shade so, as you can see from above, is highly pigmented so stands out. This colour is perfect for summer nights, with a pale eye and lots of eyeliner!
Hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments if you have any of this lipsticks or if you have a favourite summer shade!
