Spring and Summer Lipstick Picks

The sun has been beaming bright over the last few days and I have been loving it. Gone are the rainy days and cold weather and the sun is back, but for how long? I love the transition from winter to spring and summer, it must be one of my favourite times of the year. It's a great, fun time of the year with family gatherings, beach fun, barbeques and so much more. One thing I love to do during this time of the year is bring out those bright colours, whether it's a beautiful vivid lipstick or vibrant, almost neon clothing.

You can always see me sporting a bright lipstick especially pinks or corals, they are my all time favourite shades. A bright lip colour always makes me feel a whole lot better and confident. I have a huge stash of lipsticks and I have only been reaching for 5 of them over the last few weeks and I absolutely adore them all.

Here are my top 5 lipstick picks!

Bourjois Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach

I absolutely love this lip crayon, it's the most beautiful peachy-pink shade. I'd say it's quite a neutral shade rather than a bright 'out there' shade as the pigmentation isn't exactly incredible. This lip crayon is an instant pick me up which gives a lovely, subtle, sheer wash of colour to the lips. It is extremely wearable and perfect for everyday use when you don't want to glide on a bold lipstick.

I have so many pink lipsticks in my stash and I have been opting for this MAC lipstick in Saint Germain recently over the others. It's a ravishing baby pink shade but cool toned so it looks great on my pale-fair skin. It's of the cremesheen formula which I happen to love. It feels matte but incredibly creamy on the lips and the pigmentation is as you'd expect in a high end lipstick, it's incredible and opaque in one swipe. If you're looking to invest in this lipstick check out my dupe post here to find a cheaper alternative.

Topshop Lipstick in Charmed
I only just bought this off a blogsale a few weeks ago. It's my first topshop makeup purchase and I was in love with this from the first swipe. It's definitely out of my comfort zone as it's quite a flamboyant apricot-orange shade which I've never tried before. It doesn't wash me out like I thought it would, it glides nicely onto the lips and the texture of the lipstick is very smooth and velvety which I adore.
Spring and Summer Lipstick Swatches
This has to be my favourite of them all, it's a vivacious coral-pink that looks very 'out there' and phenomenal on the lips. It's definitely a lip colour that makes you stand out from the crowd. The Revlon Lip Balm has a matte finish but also feels super moisturising on the lips too. It has great lasting power and I only need to swipe this onto my lips again 3 hours after applying which is impressive.

Every girl needs a nude lipstick in their collection and this is my favourite. It's a very sweet, light pink that is a 'my lips but better' shade that gives a sheer wash of colour. It's of the glaze formula and it feels so buttery soft once applied but if you haven't exfoliated the lips beforehand it can make dry patches look very prominent. My lips always look glossy and as it's a glaze formula it gives off a beautiful sheen too. It is incredibly wearable and I always pair this with either a neutral eye or black liner for a toned down look.
