Top 5 Summer Lipsticks


Hey everyone,

I'm a bit of a lipstick junkie, and the first thing I head for on a makeup stand is always the lipsticks. I'm beginning to run out of space to put them! My shades of choice tend to differ with the seasons, and I usually go for brighter, more fun tones in Summer. I've listed below 5 of my favorite lipsticks for this season, from high street to high end and pink to red!

1. MAC Cremesheen lipstick 'Speed Dial'
I wrote a full review on this beauty here but in short, it's a cremesheen lipstick meaning it's very creamy & glossy. I find it's very sheer, but luckily very buildable! It's a lovely petal pink lipstick that's super moisturising on the lips. Speed Dial is also very natural so good for every day wear. €19

2. Gosh Velvet Touch lipstick '151 Lady Luck'*
I was sent this lipstick a while ago, although I admit I've only started using it as of late. The formula is super similar to the MAC cremesheen lipsticks, which is a bonus. 'Lady Luck' is a peachy coral shade with the smallest amount of shimmer. I can imagine this would look amazing on those graced with tanned skin, but it also looks great on fair skin! €10.99

'Mauve Outta Here' is one of my favorite shades, and the Wet N' Wild MegaLast lipsticks are brilliant! They have a matte finish but aren't too drying, and last for hours. Not only that, but they're at a bargain price too- score! 'Mauve Outta Here' is a blue toned pink, meaning it's borderline purple. €2.99

Yet another Wet N'Wild lipstick, but yet another beautiful colour. Coral-ine isn't really too coral in my opinion, but more of an orange toned red. Like 'mauve outta here', it has amazing longevity and is also pretty moisturising for a matte lipstick. I can't wait to try more shades from this range! I recommend matte lipsticks in Summer because they won't melt straight off. €2.99

My nana brought this home for me from Canada, and at first I was a bit doubtful as I'd never tried a liquid lipstick before! After trying this out, I'm hooked. It's extremely matte and can be a bit dry, but it lasts for hours even throughout eating and drinking. This classic red is perfect for those Summer nights, or the days when you want your lipstick to last in the strong heat! $13

So there you have it! 5 of my favorite Summer shades.
