Today, I am going to share my top summer lipsticks that I have been using for last few months. Couple of lipsticks from this bunch can still be worn in fall and winter seasons. Summer is one such season when you can break all rules and wear all bright/bold colors you like. It’s perfect time to experiment with your wardrobe and makeup collection. Be it bronzing or contouring, you can go as far as you like with your creativity (My personal favorite bronzer these days is Rimmel London Natural Bronzer).
Some important points that I consider while buying lipsticks for summer:
- Should be long lasting
- Color payoff should be excellent
- Should not be sticky (Nobody wants their hair stuck to the lips)
- Should be Matte finish
- Should not be heavy on lips
- Should not feather or bleed
From Left to Right: Mac – All Fired Up, Loreal Infallible Matt Gloss – Tantalizing Tangerine, NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick – Exotic, NYX- Shocking Pink, and Kat Von D – Double Dare.
- Mac – All Fired Up:
The five lip products that I am talking in this blog pass above criteria. My top favorite is All Fired Up from Mac. The formula of this lipstick is Retro Matte, which makes it stay in place all day long. Feathering or bleeding of lipsticks in summer is strictly no no for me. The color pay off is amazing. This is beautiful fuchsia pink color with red undertone, which makes this color so unique.
- Kat Von D – Double Dare
The next one is Double Dare from Kat Von D that I purchased recently. The best thing about this liquid lipstick is that it doesn’t leave a white line at the inner part of the lips which most lipsticks do even the high-end ones. The formula is non-sticky and light on lips. It is rosy color with peachy undertone. I really like the opacity of this liquid lipstick; in one swipe you get full color.
- Loreal Infallible Matt Gloss – Tantalizing Tangerine
The third one is very bright tangerine orange color. It is very opaque. The minus about this lipstick is, it’s not transfer proof. You might need to set in with loose powder to make it last longer. The applicator is really good for reaching to corners of lips. 511-Tantalizing Tangerine
- NYX- Shocking Pink
NYX Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink has made to the 4th number in the list. It is blue-based hot pink color. This color can brighten up any casual outfit. It stays put in matt finish. Biggest plus is that its under $5 😀
- NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick – Exotic
Last one is very versatile color. You can definitely rock this in all seasons. Again this one is from NYX but in liquid lipstick formulation in shade Exotic. I have two from this line (Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick). But, I like the formulation of this shade over the other one (Ruffle Trim). If you want to try anything from this line, I would highly recommend the shade named Exotic. This is rosy brown color.
