5 Lipsticks For Summer

Lipstick is my jam. Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time will know that. It's the perfect finishing touch to your makeup look and can easily transform a look from day to night without any hassle. I thought I'd chat through a 5 of my current favourite lipsticks that are all perfect for the summer (basically all year round but yeah... trying to stick with this whole summer vibe at the moment). 


001. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil "Red Square"

An absolutely classic, I'm sure you'll agree. If I'm wanting something easy to apply that's gonna stick around and make me feel sassy af, this is what I'll go for, hands down. The shade is the perfect red for me and really compliments my skin tone, and it's so easy to apply because of the pencil design.




002. Nars "Vera"


Vera is something a little different for me, a fuschia pink in the shape of Nars "Vera". I love the formula of the Nars lipsticks and already own a couple This isn't a shade I reach for on a day to day basis, but I always love it and feel great when I do wear it. It's the perfect shade for day to night, you can pair it with minimal makeup or create a super glam look.



003. Charlotte Tilbury "Pillowtalk" 

This is definitely a newer addition to my stash but I literally fell head over heals for it in the space of like 5 minutes. I found it in store and knew I had to have it, but it wasn't until I applied it the next day that I realized just how perfect the shade is. It's a real "your lips but better" kinda deal and I'm completely smitten. I absolutely adore the formula of the CT lipsticks anyway, but paired with such a classic shade choice, you can't really go wrong. 


004. Bobbi Brown "Rosy"


I think this is definitely a classic in the beauty world, in fact, the majority of bloggers will own it, and it's not difficult to see why. I'm not usually one for a glossier finish lipstick, I nearly always opt for matte finishes but for some reason I just can not get enough of this beauty. It's a stunning rosy shade that's the perfect hybrid of red and pink hues. You can build it up to be more of an opaque shade, but I love applying a little and blending it out lightly with my fingertip to give a softer and more sheer finish. 


005. Charlotte Tilbury "Marilyn"


If you're wanting the perfect red hue, this is definitely an essential in your makeup bag. I just find this shade completely transforms my makeup and my complexion. Again, it's not a matte finish, but it's definitely a formula that sticks around, even through a few drinks and a bite to eat. I don't feel like this shade actually gets enough recognition, but if you see it in store or online, definitely pick it up.
