COLLAB | TOP 5 - SUMMER LIP COLOURS






Today is my first ever collab and it is with the ever so lovely, Jasmine from blogsallbeautyy.blogspot.com. I absolutely love her blog. Her blog is predominatly beauty related with lots of helpful recommendations, reviews and advice. She blogs every Monday and posts at 5.30 (GMT) which is great because I always know when she posts.

Jasmine and I decided to collab late last week and we thought a post on our top 5 lip colours for summer would be suitable considering we have just headed into the warmer months.

I have picked out a lip colour from each lip product category. I decided to pick some higher end and some drugstore so there was something for everyone.

Lip liner

I have been loving the Sigma Lip base in the shade for summer because it is so creamy when you apply it and turns matte so it will not budge when it is applied. This formula is a must for summer because it gives a matte appearance without drying out the lips. I love this peachy-nude colour as well because it will not clash with any makeup look. I think this colour will look great on any skin tone because it is not really pale so it looks like you have concealer lips and isn't too dark for summer. I tend to wear nudes and pinks during summer and avoid deeper colours which are more autumn and winter appropriate.

Lipstick

MAC crème cup is a great colour which can be worn all year round, however I think it looks best in spring and summer. It is a cremesheen formula so it glides on easily and hydrates the lips and looks slightly glossy. It is a lovely dusky pink colour which compliments a neutral and natural makeup look or a very dramatic, smoky look.

Lip Lacquer

I always think that if you are going to go for a bold lip colour, it should be in summer. I love bright neon pink colours in summer with a neutral and matte brown eye. The Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar is perfect for creating this look.

Liquid Lipstick

I have quite a few liquid lipsticks but I think for the price, my favourites have to be the NYX matte lip creams. The most summer appropriate one is the one shown in the picture above in Istanbull. The formula of these liquid lipsticks are very creamy however they turn matte when applied to the lips. The colour is very opaque however you could apply a little and sheer it out slightly over the lips for a more natural and subtle look.

Lipgloss

Guerlain lipglosses are always great because they don't leave your lips feeling sticky. I think this Guerlain lipgloss is perfect because it is a lovely deep pink shade which makes your lips slightly glossy and balmy looking.


Be sure to check out Jasmine's post and I hope you all have a lovely evening. I have planned out the next months post and I have a helpful series starting in the next two weeks which I am so excited to get started.

  6. I'd love to try the NYX matte lip creams :)
    I've never got along with the Rimmel Apocolips though, always found them a bit too pigmented for me!
