Summer Lip Edit

by - 10:00

Summer is here, and although I love my dark lips, I can't help but get into the summery mood and rock some bright lips. So here are some of my favourite lipsticks to wear this summer...


1. Rimmel Kate Moss - 08 

I've had this lipstick for YEARS, in fact, it was one of the first good lipsticks I ever bought myself. When I first got it, I would wear it constantly, it was my absolute favourite, but over the years my collection has grown and I've kinda neglected it. I rediscovered it a few months ago and I remembered why I loved it so much! It's the perfect pink nude, and I don't usually like pink nudes, this one actually works for me. It's a very 'my lips but better' colour and I'm so glad that I still have it. I usually wear it on 'natural' makeup days. 

2. Revlon Super Lustrous - Kiss Me Coral

Everyone who knows me, knows that my favourite colour is orange and so obviously I love a good orange lipstick every now and then. It is orange, but it's not 'in your face' orange, it's a beautiful shade that you can build up to an intense colour, or just have a light wash of colour. I love the formula of these lipsticks, they're very smooth and moisturising, but they also last a really long time. LOVE. 

3. Mac - Lady Danger 

This is my go-to bright orange/red lipstick. I love Mac lipsticks, I just think they have a really great formula, especially the matte ones (which this is). As I said, it is a very bright orange toned red, I bought this as a little birthday present for myself a few years ago, and it's still one of my most beloved lipsticks. 

4. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter - Juicy Papaya 

I don't even know if these are still available or not, but I don't really care. I went crazy for these when they first came out, just like everyone did, I bought so many shades and I wore them all the time. Then they hype died down a little and I never even touched them! I've had them sat in my makeup drawers for years, untouched. Then one day, I wanted to go for a slightly 'summery' lip (basically something light, sheer and glossy-ish), so I pulled this out and I completely fell back in love with them. They are soooo beautiful! They are very sheer, I usually wear them over the top of another lipstick to give them a slight orange tint and a bit of sheen. Perfect for those #SummerVibes 

5. Jeffree Star X Manny MUA - I'm Shook 

I've done an entire review on this collection before, which you can read HERE, so I won't be going into too much detail about formula etc. but this lipstick is honestly gorgeous. It's a stunning, bright reddish, coral shade. When first applied it looks brighter and more coral, but throughout the day it continues to get darker and turns into the perfect red. It's still bright, but not a blinding bright. I've worn this so many times since getting it because it really is beautiful, definitely a fave in my collection. 

6. MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - Dash 

I never typically wear pink lipsticks, but I remember being on YouTube one day watching one of 'Sophdoesnails' videos, and she started talking about this exact lipstick and I remember thinking it was beautiful and that I wanted to try it. A few days later I just so happened to be in Superdrug and came across it in the MUA stand, and considering it's only £3, I decided to give it a shot. The formula is actually so good for the price, it can be a little patchy and dry, but nothing too serious. I genuinely do love the formula, especially for the price! And I've finally found a pink lipstick that I can wear, and dare I say, but it actually looks good. I would definitely be interested in buying more.
