Lip Edit: Summer Lips

June 03, 2014

It feels like it's been a while since i've written up a lip edit post, and it feels good to be back especially as i'm talking about my picks for this summer today. I'm bringing back a few favourites from last summer, as I really got into my lip products, whilst also bringing a few new picks into the mix.
Starting off with my most recent favourite lip product and that is the Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in the shade 'Unapologetic'. This colour is definitely my bright pop of colour for this summer as this shade is so bright and really brightens up my complexion. I also love the formula of this, as matte finishes have never been my favourite.. I love how they look just not on me, but this so moisturising!

Another pick from Revlon and another recent delve for me into the Revlon Lip Butter in the shade 'Raspberry Pie'. This shade is a little darker for summer, but seeing as I love my plum shades this is my exception for my summer picks. Lasts well, nourishing and overall just lovely!

This next pick is probably my most favourite from last summer, this next product is the Maybelline Color Whisper in the shade 'A Plum Prospect'. Little back story, I lost this stupidly on a night out and I was gutted, so when Alexandra sent me a replacement I was so so happy! I love this as it makes my lips look so juicy and this is such a pretty pinky shade with a slight purple undertone, love it!

Moving onto two more products that I loved last summer, well technically the same product but in two shades and of course i'm talking about the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons in the shades 'Red Sunrise' and 'Orange Punch'. I love the formula of these and they are so easy to apply when you just want a quick sweep of colour that doesn't dry out the lips and lasts pretty well. Both of these shades are so different to any other lip products I own, which is probably why I like them so much.

Last but not least, I couldn't not include my current favourite MAC Lipstick in the shade 'Girl About Town'. I've recently rekindled my love for this shade as it adds such a nice pop of pink without it being to 'in your face' but also not too subtle, a nice in between. I love this shade for when i'm more dressed up or going for drinks, but I don't trust myself with any of my more pricier lipsticks on nights out, sigh.

What lip products are you reaching for this summer?

  13. Great picks! I love me some bright lipsticks, but it the summer I definitely want the vibrancy without the full-on lipstick feeling and all of those are PERFECT. Even Girl About Town is super comfortable to wear (just bought that one recently). The only thing I would add to this for me are the NYX butter glosses :)
