Hello beauties, how are you? Hope you had a fab weekend and your week is going well so far! :) So we’ve come to the end of my I Heart Summer Series unfortunately (where on earth has the time gone!) and I decided to safe the best for last. As you know I am a massive lip product junkie and today I am going to be talking about my top lip product picks for this season. Hold your horses cuz I have a lot of goodies to talk about and I feel like this post will be pretty long! <3
Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Laquer in Apocaliptic
I cannot feasibly talk lip products without mentioning my love with the Rimmel Apocalips (review and swatches here). Hands down they are incredible and I am specifically obsessed with the shade Apocaliptic. It is this gorgeous bright fuchsia, which as the other lip lacquers from the range dries to a nice semi matte finish. I adore the color because it is really bright and for the summer I am all about the bold, vibrant lips. If you still haven’t tried the Apocalips then you should know that they are super pigmented and not drying on the lips, which I love. They stay on for hours and are overall brilliant products and I definitely recommend checking them out.
Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color in Pink Possibilities
Another product that I am really enjoying is this fab tinted lip balm form Maybelline (review swatches here). The Color Whispers are really lovely and moisturizing and have a nice gel-like formula. They are not super pigment but you can build the color up if you want to. When on the lips the Color Whispers definitely feel hydrating and really soft and smooth. They are not very long lasting though, which is a bit annoying but oh well… The shade I am loving is called Pink Possibilities and it is a beautiful medium pink with a nice glossy finish. (:
Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
As you may know I love my orange lippes and Tutti Frutti (review and swatches here) has to be my absolutely favorite. Its gorgeous bright tangerine color is just perfect for the summer and it is almost shameful how often I’ve been wearing it recently haha. It is really opaque and creamy and feels incredibly hydrating on the lips. If you still haven’t gotten your hands on the Revlon Lip Butters I don’t know what on Earth are you waiting for – they are amazing and definitely worth the hype they’ve been getting! <3
Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in #16
Another one of my favorites has to be this gorgeous pinkish coral lipstick, which is basically like a summer in a bullet, don’t you think (review and swatches here)? I absolutely adore how vibrant this shade is and it’s actually iridescent and gets a bit orange-y at certain lighting, which is just to die for! The formula of the Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks is amazing too – they are moisturizing and feel really smooth on the lips. The pigmentation is also fab and they stay on my lips for some good 5 hours. One thing I am not really fond about though is the scent, it is very strong and I don’t like it at all but I swear by this range regardless. (:
YSL Rouge Volupe in #13 Peach Passion
If you are into makeup you surely have heard how fab these lipsticks from YSL are. I feel like everyone and their dog have been raving about them for the past year or so and it’s completely understandable – they are simply amazing! The Rouge Volupte lippies are incredibly pigmented and opaque and they are seriously the creamiest lipsticks that I’ve ever tried. They are super moisturizing and dry out to a beautiful glossy finish. One thing that I need to mention though is that they are not very long lasting but when I look at the gorgeous gold packaging I kind of forget about that haha. The shade that has been making its way to my lips this season has been #13 Peach Passion. It is basically a bright peachy shade with some coral undertones to it and I love how it brightens up my face when I wear it (especially when I have some tan on). <3 I know that this babe is on the pricey side but I honestly think it’s definitely worth the money and I highly encourage you to get it if you have the chance.
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in #2 Dewy Papaya
If you don’t know what the YSL Volupte SheerCandy product range is, it’s basically a line of highly moisturizing and glossy lip balms. They have nothing to do with lipsticks and I definitely classify them as lovely tinted lip balms. As the name suggests they are pretty sheer and give just a nice wash of color. They apply super easily and feel amazing on the lips. :) As I said earlier, I LOVE my oranges and this pretty gem is not an exception. It is a gorgeous sheer peachy shade, which is perfect for the summer when I need just a hint of color on my lips. It definitely compliments my skin tone and I really love its fruity taste. :)
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Pearl in 576 Sari Pink
If you’ve read my review of this beauty you know that it has to grab the crown for my most loved lip product for Summer 2013. I love everything about this lip gloss! It is the prettiest blue toned coral pink and it has gorgeous finely milled silver and fuchsia shimmer in it. It is super glossy and I love that it’s not sticky at all, which I find rare when it comes to lip glosses. The Dior Addict Gloss is also really moisturizing and smooth. Definitely check it out if you are into corals for the summer, you can’t really go wrong with this gem. (:
EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit
If you are a fellow dry-lip girl then you know why I had to include a lip balm in this post. I like to have a lip balm with me at all times because I like to be prepared if I get dehydrated and my lips get super dry and rough. For the summer I really enjoy using this EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit (review here) because it not only moisturizes my lips massively but it also smells and tastes like a tropical island! :) If you’ve never tried the oh-so-famous EOS (‘Evolution Of Smooth’) lip balms then you may want to give them a whirl they are super hydrating and make the lips amazingly soft and smooth. They are 95% organic and 100% natural as well.
Phew, I can’t believe I managed to narrow down my top summer lip products only to eight haha! I definitely use many more than these because I love switching up my lip colors constantly but I feel like I’ve been reaching for these little gems the most for the past month or so. I really hope you enjoyed this post, definitely let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and have an amazing day everyone! <3
Which are your go-to lip products for Summer 2013? :)
Lots of love,
