My Top 5 Summer Lip Products.


Hello My Lovelies!

Today's post will be all about my Top 5 Summer Lip Products. I referred to them as "Lip Products" as I've picked a selection of lip creams, lipsticks and a chubby stick. These are a selection of products that I've personally enjoyed wearing now that we've got some nice weather, some of these are quite bright and others are more sheer but I believe all of them are great for this time of year! On with the post..

1. MUA Power Pout in Justify

If you saw my mini haul a few days ago you would have saw that I had recently picked this up and had already expressed how pleased I was with it. This chubby stick is an orange shade so don't be fooled by this light, sheer swatch. This colour goes on at first like a sheer, lightly coloured gloss, however after a few applications you begin to build up the colour and it intensifies into a really glossy coral colour which is so perfect for this time of year. It looks great on both pale and tanned skin, it's long lasting and as it's a glossy finish it feels very comfortable on the lips.
2. Rimmel Apocalips - Big Bang

I bought this product a few months back and it's become one of my favourite red lip colours. It's honestly the most amazing bright red colour I've come across. This lip stain is so pigmented, you only need to put a tiny bit on the lips to get a really bright red colour, so a little goes a long way with this product. If you apply quite a generous application, not only does the colour intensify but it also builds up a really nice glossy finish so this product is like a lipstick and lipgloss all in one which may not be to everyone's taste but I really love it for this time of year. I will warn you however that I find this product incredibly messy. I always seem to get it all over my hands and all over my teeth and I have no idea why!

3. MAC Coral Bliss Cremesheen Lipstick

This is my only high end lip product in this post and it is one of my favourite lip colours right now. Similar to Justify by MUA, this is another glossy, sheer orange colour however this one is more on the peachy side. Again this looks amazing on pale skin and will probably also suit a lot of other skin tones. I have done a post about my MAC lipsticks before, where you can see how this looks on my lips as the swatch doesn't really do it justice here. As this lipstick is a cremesheen finish, the colour will never come out as intense as it looks in the bullet so please bare that in mind incase you buy this and are disappointed.
4. Manhattan Matte Lip Cream in 53M

This Matte Lip Cream doesn't have a name which is disappointing however it does have a number, 53M. This lip cream is a deep, mauvey pink colour which looks great on both tanned and pale skin. It can be really vibrant once you build it up and is a nice change from the usual expected bright lip colours for this time of year. It's not an in your face Barbie pink at all but it's still incredibly appropriate for the summer.

5. Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Citrus Slice

This lipstick is more of a lip balm than anything as it adds little to almost no colour. It does however add a beautiful glossy shine to the lips which feels really refreshing and comfortable. It looks very subtle yet is still very suited to this time of year. A nice shine to your lips makes your appearance instantly look brighter or at least I think so anyway!
Swatches of all the products.

That's it for today's post! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe it's even inspired you to try some of these products?

Let me know what your favourite summer lip products are or what your thoughts are on any of my picks.

Hope you're all well!
