Since summer begin and the eye makeup has been taking a bit of a break, I’ve really been all about showcasing the lips instead. We all have different preferences for what shades we like, but I’ve pulled out the corals, pinks, and even a red as some of my favourite to wear throughout the summer. What are your favourites for this time of year?
These 5 have been the ones I have been reaching for the most out of my collection.
Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 | Cherry Me
I ran out of Baby Lips awhile back and didn’t really bother to repurchase, but after an emergency “I forgot my lip balm, I’m dying” situation I decided to pick one up again at the drugstore. I was a fan of Grape Vine but I wanted to choose a new colour so I went with Cherry Me. It’s the slightest of red tint on the lips, which is perfect for when you need a break from lipstick since it’s very moisturizing.
Toto Beau Liquid Lipstick | Turn On
I never thought I’d find a red that suited me until I met this one. Especially now that I’m summer tanned this red-orange lipstick really stands out well with my skin tone. Although it’s a liquid lipstick it doesn’t dry into a stain like a lot of matte liquid lipsticks do now but it still has pretty good lasting power prior to eating or drinking.
Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 | Sunkissed
The name of this lipstick is perfect since this is such a summer colour. For some, our skin tones get a little more bronzed so this warm coral pink looks even more special on. It reminds me of a date night or evenings in the summer since as weird as it sounds is a romantic colour to me. But really it looks perfect anytime!
NYX Butter Gloss | Peaches and Cream
Aside from the girly pink coral colour I love how moisturizing this is on the lips. This is a very playful shade so it can be too young looking for some people. I already look pretty young so you can imagine how much more younger this makes me look! Regardless, I still adore the shade and wear it on casual days.
Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15 | Sunshine
In the tube this appears as an orangy coral but it’s actually a tint of peach on the lips. This or the Maybelline Baby Lips are my lip products of choice when I know I’m going to be out in the sun all day. I love carrying around tints for the beach since they give your lips a wash of colour while still looking super natural on – and bonus points for the ones that have an SPF protection from the sun.
