Hi Lip lovers,
It is another lip-tastic post!!
I am quite the collector of lip products and so I decided on sharing with you my favourite summer lipstick shades.
I initially had decided that I would only pick 5 lipsticks however, I failed miserably at that! And I ended up picking … 10!!!
Here is the video –
The first of the bunch is a LIP GLOSS! I know shocking! I hardly ever wear lip gloss but ever since Ashley Tisdale released her very own line I couldn’t resist!!
Her line is called Illuminate and you can purchase any of her products on BH Cosmetics. My favourite shade for the summer months is BONFIRE.
The second shade is Wild Watermelon from Revlon. It just screams summer to me !
The third shade is another lipstick. This time it is from the brand MUA. This is one of their latest releases from their – VIVID LIPSTICK LINE – called Red Alert.
The fourth lip shade is one of my first mattes that I ever owned! This is from ELF and it is from the Studio Matte Lip Color Range. My favourite for summer is in the shade called Fuchsia.
The fifth shade is a liquid lipstick. Now as a DISCLAIMER I would like to let you all know – as I also included in this in my video – this lipstick is a REPLICA. I bought this off ebay and I was aware that it would not be real. However, because I tried the product and I actually liked it I wanted to share it with you all.
Now I know there will be others who would disagree with me because I use replica makeup but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. And my opinion on the matter is that I actually like how the product turns on my lips.
It is not drying whatsoever nor is it sticky. It does not have any bad chemical smells. Now I know the ingredients I can never find out what it really includes. But just be aware that there are famous brands that nonetheless use harmful chemicals too.
Anyways my favourite shade for the summer is another liquid lipstick this time from Dose of Colours in the shade BARE WITH ME. I had to include a nude.
The next shade is a favourite of mine and even the formula is AMAZING! That being NYX from their soft matte lip cream line. This time in the shade MILAN.
As you can see I love pink in summer!! Now moving on from pink, I had to include an orange coral sort of shade. And I chose MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade ZEST. This screams summer to me!
The next shade is one that I am obsessed it with. Again this is a replica but it is amazing nonetheless. I love its matte effect that it leaves and it is a perfect orange red toned shade. This is from Mac Retro Liquid Lipstick in Feels so Grand.
The ninth shade is from MUA and this time its from again a new range called the Inked Lip Stain in the shade Watermelon. This honestly feels so refreshing on my lips!
And let me tell you, it does leave a lip stain on your lips that no matter if you use and scrub on a makeup wipe to try and take it off it will remain there. You can see my struggle by watching my video!!
(The swatch I have here is not a true swatch as I did not really leave it to dry so it would be a lip stain. You could see how it really stained my lips on my video)
Now for the final shade I chose Panda from Colourpop from their Ultra Satin Lip. Now because of Watermelon – my previous lip shade – panda came off a little patchy. But I am sure it was because of the stain drama I had on before!!
I had to include a purple here even though purple is usually associated with the winter and cold months. But I love purple nonetheless, be it winter or summer!!
So there you have it, my favourite summer lip shades!
I really hope you liked my blog post and video !!
