Must Have Summer Lip Colors!

Lately I have been all about bold lips, especially bright pinks!  Summer is such a fun time to sport some fun different lip shades and so far these are the ones I have been pulling for this year!  

NYX Lipstick in Hot Pink Rose - This is a nice RICH and pigmented hot pink! I love pairing this with a similar gloss shade or lighten it up with a nude gloss if I don't want it to be too in your face! Such a fun bright color! 

NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler - This reminds me of a liquid version of my favorite lipstick called See Sheer by MAC.  This is just a little different in that it's a little brighter and richer in pigment.  It's also shinier like a gloss would be.  

Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain in Tropical Frenzy - I like this because its a little on the sheer side so its not overly bright.  It's nice for those days when you want a little bit of a pop of color but not something too over powering.  It's also great because it stains your lips so the color lasts all day!

L'Oreal Infallable 8hr Le Gloss in Barely Nude - This is just a simple nude mauve shade so in reality this isn't just for "summer" but its what I have been pulling for lately.  I love this shade because it's not an overly pale nude so it gives a little bit of color to your lips but it's still good for those "natural makeup days" we often do in the summer.

YSL Volupté Sheer Candy 62H601 - I have had this coral shade forever and I love it.  A sweet subscriber sent it to me and it's one of my favorite lip products I own.  I love this because again… it's sheer but gives JUST enough pop to your lips.  These kind of products are great for summer because you don't need a mirror to apply them.  You just pop them on and you are good to go.  Great for a pool or beach bag! 

Here are the swatches in order from above.  Let me know in the comments what your favorite summer lip colors are this year?? I would love to try out some new shades.. especially some drugstore shades!  List them below and maybe you will be the next

Have a fabulous day!
