It’s summer time! And oh boy is it hot! Which makes it the perfect time to whip out all your beautifully bright and vibrant lip colours, which means pink, pink and more pink! And let’s not forget a gorgeous, bold Christmas red, perfect for the festive season. So I wanted to share my top four lipstick colours for those hot summer days.
My first summertime lip choice had to be a nude and who better to choose than the Rimmel Kate in colour 042. It is really soft and buttery, keeping your lips softer for longer as it glides on super smooth. The colour payoff is really good, especially for a nude but I am not the biggest fan of the smell. Apart from that factor I absolutely love this lippie and my favourite part is the mellow pink packaging.
This is such a lovely vibrant red, in the colour Forever Darling. It is definitely my favourite of the four. It’s a bit messy to apply but beautiful once you get it on right. It being a stain, adds to the longevity and it has an almost lipgloss to lipstick feel with a bit of stickiness. Again the packaging is fabulous and gives the look of a capsule.
I’m going to be honest and say I have no clue what colour this lipstick is as the number rubbed off, but I took a wild guess that it was 181N Rouge Saint Honore. This is my perfect summer/Christmas red. Lancome makes some fantastic lip products and this one is no exception, with the best scent; that being rose. This lipstick has the smoothest and silkiest application and is extremely moisturising.
Last, but certainly not least, the best watermelon coloured lipstick by LUSH is in the colour Believe. This particular lipstick does have a very grainy texture but regardless it still applies very smooth. The colour payoff is incredible and it actually acts like a liquid lipstick/stain once completely dry.
