6 Perfect Lipsticks For Spring & Summer

April 14, 2017



Lipstick is arguably my favourite makeup item. I've built up quite the collection, sometimes having about seven lipsticks that are all the same hue (but they're different, I swear!), and yet I'm always on the lookout for more shades to add to my stash!

Despite having more lipsticks than I can count, they're all pretty much in the nude side of things. I have four of five bright lipsticks, yes, but I tend to reach for the lightest ones as I feel they suit me best. With that in mind, I thought I'd share six beautiful lipsticks I'm gonna be rocking this Spring and Summer...



CHARLOTTE TILBURY PENELOPE PINK & PILLOW TALK

You know I couldn't do a lipstick post without including my babies! My favourites for this time of year (or all the time, really) are Penelope Pink and Pillow Talk. They come in two different formulas: Penelope Pink is part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. range, which is the creamier formula, and Pillow Talk is a classic Matte Revolution lipstick. They're both in the nude pink side of things, but Penelope Pink is more of a beige pink whereas Pillow Talk is the most perfect nude pink lipstick I've ever seen.

MAC PEACH BLOSSOM

I've talked about this gem in my March Favourites but I had to mention it again! Like the name indicates, this is a peachy lipstick which was absolutely made for Spring & Summer – it's a glossy coral pink that looks beautiful when worn with a low key outfit for any occasion. The Cremesheen formula is meh, but the colour makes it worth it!

NYX ISTANBUL

I reserve this lipstick for the Summer, holidays and tanned skin. It's a beautiful vibrant, darker pink that looks beautiful against bronzed skin and you just can't beat the formula of these – if you like a matte finish but HATE the feeling of normal liquid lipsticks, then the Soft Matte Lip Cremes are made for you!

YSL NUDE LAVALLIERE #44

Do I hate the formula of these? Yes. Do I adore the colour of this lipstick? Yes! This is a lipstick I wear when I want to have something on my lips when I go to the store, the gym or the beach, but only if I'm okay with my lipstick fading in about an hour, maybe less! This shade really is beautiful though, it's a glossy petal pink and the packaging makes up for its horrible formula... almost.

RIMMEL x KATE MOSS #54 ROCK'N'ROLL NUDE

In my opinion, the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks are probably the best in the drugstore and the nudes are just so beautiful! I particularly love this one, which is a creamy light pink toned nude. The formula is great, super moisturising and the packaging is just sooo pretty.
