Summer Lips


Today I want to share my top summer lip products, in the warmer months I tend to gravitate more to pink shades and lip products that have a bit of shimmer and some bolder colours too. So here are my top picks…


I like to layer lip products that have shimmer in them, Sometimes if I have a liquid lipstick Once dried I will add a lipstick or lipgloss. Just to add a bit of sparkle and to go with dewy skin I love in the summer.

Bourjois Rouge Laque- 02 TOUTE NUDE 

I have been using this liquid lipstick one a regular basis, for a good while now. If I just want a stain effect I just apply one coat, two coats for a satin finish and three coats for a super glossy finish. I have the shade 02 TOUTE NUDE, it’s a deep muted pink that is wearable but does make a statement. Super pigmented and lasts all day. Perfect for summer when you don’t want to keep reapplying.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick- Rose Matter

I love liquid lipsticks and one of my favourite formulas is Jeffree Star’s. Super Pigmented and dries to a comfortable complete matte finish. Last all day and is even hard to come off. The shade I have is Rose Matter, which is a bold pink/coral that is my go-to summer lip.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream- Athens 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are a great liquid lip stick for people who hate the matte texture on their lips. The formula is light and a very comfortable matte finish that feels weightless on the lips. Athens is a nude/pink that is amazing for everyday and non-drying.


I love to put a stain on my lips on summer, even under a lipstick so I don’t need to reapply. Benetint is a lovely rose colour that makes your natural lip colour look slightly deeper. I like to use this on my lips and on my cheeks too. This is a life saver especially if you are going out all day, so it will last and if your going to the beach or pool. Gives a skin-like effect for a dewy summer makeup look.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick- Peyote

This is a frost finish lipstick, I don’t really use it on it’s own. I like too apply this over the top of a matte lipstick to add some sparkle and to go with a summer dewy makeup look. Creating the effect of fuller lips and shine.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lip Gloss-Champagne Toast 

I us this on top of liquid lipsticks to add shine or by itself. It’s a translucent pink with gold/sliver micro glitter that make the lips look fuller and adds a bit of youthful shine. Not to mention the delicious smell!
