Favourite Summer Lipsticks

summer lipsticks

I didn't use to be one for bright lipsticks but this summer I've branched out a little and found some really great lipsticks that are perfect for summer, so today I wanted to share them with you! I have some brights, a slightly more plum toned offering and a perfect nude to offer- so let's get started, shall we?
For something that's very much within my dark plum-toned lipsticks comfort zone but with a more summer appropriate finish, I like to wear the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Broadest Berry. It can be worn quite sheer or you can build it up for a more opaque finish. It's really moisturising and stays well on the lips!
I've done an entire post on the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Edition lipstick in Pink Pong already (read it here), so I won't go on about it too much now. It's a stunning bright pink matte shade that feels weightless on the lips and stays on all day- what's not to love?
If you're a nude lover then you need to get your hands on the NYX round lipstick in Pumpkin Pie- one of my all time favourite nudes. It's a lovely peachy nude that's not too nude so it doesn't wash you out, and it looks absolutely fantastic with a tan in the summer!
My new absolute favourite lipstick is Heroine by MAC. It's an incredible bright purple colour that looks slightly intimidating and probably isn't for everybody, but I adore it. It's a very matte lipstick so make sure to exfoliate your lips and use a good lip balm, but because of the matte finish it has an incredible lasting power.
Last but not least, I had to mention a red of course. I love this gloss called 'Perfect Red' by NYX because it's so opaque but can be sheered out and gives a beautiful glossy finish (it's a gloss... duh). The scent of these glosses is quite strong and lots of people love the sweet scent, but I'm personally not a big fan. However if you don't mind the scent then it's a fantastic budget gloss!

Below I have some swatches for you, so you can see what the formulas look like:
