Summery Pink Lips

Summery Pink LipsSummery Pink Lips

When it comes to lip products, I’m not particularly adventurous colour wise, and I tend to stick to pinks and corals especially in the Summer. Today I wanted to share my ‘Summery Pink Lips’; my five current favourite pink lip products for Summer, and the reasons why each product has made my top five. Generally speaking, I find myself avoiding lipsticks in the Summer as they’re not ideal for carrying around in my handbag as they melt so I usually gravitate towards glosses or lip tints.

Maybelline Color Sensational Elixir Lipgloss in Petal Plush £6.99 – I love the whole range of Color Sensational Elixirs, but Petal Plush is my most worn shade as it’s such a wearable colour, and I apply it on the go without needing a mirror and risking looking like a clown. These glosses are lightweight, non-sticky and comfortable to wear and the applicator is really nice too which makes application easy and fuss-free.

Neve Cosmetics Yumtint Color Enhancing Lip Balm €7.50/£5.42 – This lipbalm contains argan oil and grapeseed oil to nourish the lips, and it has a subtle strawberry pink tint which is perfect for the days when I don’t want to keep topping up my lipgloss or lipstick throughout the day. This balm also has a subtle berry scent and flavour, and is suitable for vegetarians.

W7 Butter Kiss Lipstick in Candy Floss £1.49 – The W7 Butter Kiss Lipsticks are a dupe for the NYX Butter Lipsticks which I also love, but these are a great budget alternative, and if it does melt in the heat, it’s not a big loss. This particular shade is a pale pink, so I like to wear it quite sheerly. I think the Butter Kiss Lipsticks are amazing value for £1.49, although they don’t smell as good as the NYX Butter Lipsticks.

NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Creme Pie £6.50 – The NYX Butter Glosses are my absolute favourite lipglosses; they all smell divine, and they’re not sticky or gloopy in the slightest. Vanilla Creme Pie is the prettiest bright pink that can be worn sheerly, or built up for a more intense colour. This is my most worn product from the five, and is my everyday lip product of choice.

2True 8Hr Power Lip Colour in Uma £4.99 – This is a longlasting lip gloss which claims to give 8 hours of wear, which I have to disagree with as I get around three at the most with this shade, but I imagine that the bolder shades have greater longevity than this one. This shade isn’t something I’d normally go for, as it’s a metallic rose shade but when worn sheerly on the lips, it doesn’t look as metallic as it does in this swatch and is really pretty.

So they are my current top five favourite summery pink lips.. I might do a post on my five favourite corals in the coming weeks, but my favourites are constantly changing as I’m rather fickle when it comes to makeup. I’d love to know what your favourite lip products for Summer are?
