We are in the height of summer now. The heat is here, kids are on vacation, and the lakes are warm enough for a plunge. So enough of the mild soft colours of spring! Bring out the bold bright lippies! I love a strong lip anytime but especially in the hot summer months. You can ease back on the other sweat inducing cosmetics but a good tan and a strong lip is all you need to pull yourself through.
Tarte Amazonian Butter lipstick in shade Pink Peony
I love the formula of these Amazonian Butter lipsticks. So rich and creamy and the transfer isn't bad at all. Although there are a whole host of pretty shades this one is the definiation of summer ease. It's a soft yet bright warm pink that goes with anything and compliments a golden tan.
Lime Crime Unicorn lipstick in shade Geradium
One of my favourite lipstick brands and formulas. Dryer and matte but this barely moves and last a long time. This shade is perfection. The very essence of summer fun.
Gerard Cosmetics gloss in Raspberry Sherbet
This is a colour I have just begun a love affair with. It's a old product from Gerard cosmetics who's claim to fame is and always will be their fantastic lip products. I love the smooth slightly hydrating texture of the glosses and this shade is so beautiful and intense on its own or paired over a strong pink for really punchy colour or with a orange or coral lipstick which is my favourite. Gives that nice hot beach sunset colour.
Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in All Dolled Up
Another lovely one from Gerard cosmetics this is a ultra hot pink and is one of the above mentioned shades I like to mix with Raspberry Sherbet. This has a very dry finish but the colour is to die for and even with transfer the colour stays very strong.
Maybelline Sensations vivid in shade Shocking Coral
These are exceptional! For the price you cannot go wrong and the line has such great punchy colours. The texture is smooth, a good amount of transfer but hey who doesn't like to touch up a bright lip with a cute compact out in the sunny streets. Again as I mention this colour topped with a bit of Raspberry Sherbet is just fantastic.
