Summer Lipsticks | Oranges and Pinks

I've been meaning to write this post for so long I hate when I do this. Since the weather has finally picked up here in Ireland, we've been getting such warm and sunny days. This is great but not so great for your make up which will be running down your face. I tend to wear very minimal to no make up when it's very warm out because it feels so much better for my skin. In summer it's a time to wear much brighter lipsticks or to just go for a simple nude for a natural look. I thought I'd share the summer lipsticks I wear all the time and also the ones that are perfect for summer which I wish I wore much more.




Seventeen Stay Pout in Man Hunt: What a name for a lipstick. This lipstick looks like the most orange lipstick ever it looks so terrifying, but in reality it's not actually that bright on. It's more of a coral peachy shade, although it's still bright it's very wearable. I'm trying to make myself wear it more because I actually like it. Yet because I'm so pale the thoughts of wearing a pale lipstick make me feel like my face is going to look really washed out, which I know it actually doesn't. This lipstick is quite cheap and I have to say the packaging feels good quality and sturdy. The lipstick formulation is a little thick but it does the job and stays on very well.

Collection Work the Colour Matt Lip Butter in 02 Pumpkin Pie: This lipstick is the most orange out of the bunch and it's really bright. I wore this a lot at the start of summer when I was feeling adventurous but now it intimidates me a lot. It's really pigmented and it can be drying on the lips but I really love this range of lipsticks. It only comes in three colours; of which I have them all, and they're only around three euro which I think is really good value. Especially if you wanna try out a bright orange shade for cheap.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish in 16: This shade is so pretty, it's a really light peachy pink and it's so cute on, I would call this the perfect summer shade. I think it looks perfect with a nice summer dress or shorts. If you read back on my older blog posts you'll know that I love the Rimmel Kate Moss range of lipsticks so it's no surprise that I have three shades in this post as I think they have a perfect formulation and there's so much choice in the range. Plus the new rose gold packaging is amazing.


   

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish 02: The next shade is another Rimmel Kate moss and this one is a very vibrant pink. This one makes me look so pale because it's so vibrant but it would look so good on a sunny day when you're wearing tan or getting a tan. I don't wear this shade much but I want to be more adventurous with lipsticks again as I used to be. Lately I just wear the NYX Soft Matte Lipcreams but the shades I have are all very safe.

Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 04 On the Catwalk: This shade looks dark in the packaging but the lipstick formulation isn't that strong or pigmented so the lipstick actually comes out quite sheer and light. It comes out a dark pink with red tones and adds a bit of shine and colour to your lips. I like that it's not that strong of a colour for summer, it looks more natural and also it won't feel heavy on your lips but it moisturizes.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish 30: This is the darkest shade out of all the lipsticks I picked. It's a dark red-purple but it's not too dark. It'd be perfect for a summer night out or just a general day wear. I probably shouldn't have picked so many lipsticks from the same range but I genuinely use them so much and think they're so worth it, you're guaranteed to find something you like.


Swatches are in order: Seventeen Stay Pout in Man Hunt, Collection Matt Lip Butter in 02 Pumpkin Pie, Rimmel Kate Moss 16, Rimmel Kate Moss 02, Essence 04 On the Catwalk, and Rimmel Kate Moss 30.

I feel like summers not only for neutral colours but for trying out vibrant and funky, cool shades that you wouldn't normally wear if it was raining outside. Although I wear a lot of nude lipstick, trying brighter pinks and oranges is a great thing to add to any look during the hotter months. Also no lipstick is limited to a certain time of year, I'd just like to mention that for a last word.

What's everyone's favourite summer lipstick?
