My Favourite Lip Products For The Summer


When it comes to lipsticks, I’m an addict, I love the finish lipsticks give, and the range of finishes they give, to the longevity of lipsticks. Lipsticks can create a look, and a pop of colour. Or if you simply want to add a hint of gloss to your lips, or even on top of your lipstick. Personally when I’m wearing a bold lipstick I feel amazing, I feel bold and really powerful. So I thought id share with you my favourite summer lipsticks.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector:

Now if you are someone who hates the feeling of lip-gloss, you may like this. It’s not sticky at all, and it doesn’t weigh your lips down. There are so many colours to choose from, with new colours coming out. Currently there are eight colours to choose from, these lip-glosses aren’t incredibly pigmented, but they have a beautiful tint. Which is perfect to add just to your lips alone for an everyday look, or a little bit over the top of a lipstick.

The Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, have a sweet vanilla scent to them, but it doesn’t linger I find. It gives your lips a 3D shimmer, making your lips look smooth. But this lip gloss also is super nourishing to the lips, its so hydrating, so whilst your wearing a hint of colour your also keeping your lips looking great!

Wow Oh Wow oh WOW!! Finding a second lip gloss that I actually like is rare, but this is it!! These are so pigmented, and buttery on the lips, they are not at all sticky or heavy, they work amazing over a lip liner, and create a beautiful pigmented full lips, they do add a little bit of volume to the lips, which I wasn’t expecting, but love.

Makeup Academy Matte Lipstick:

 I feel like these lipsticks are the perfect festival lipsticks. They are richly pigmented, and not at all drying. Whilst I think these are the perfect festival lipsticks, they are still wearable shades. These lipsticks despite their price last incredibly well on the skin, and when they do start to disappear they do it naturally without looking flaky.

They do however last really well on the lips, they have a slight creamy-ness to them, making them really easy to apply to the lips. With eight shades to choose from, your festival lipstick is not far away.

Maybelline SuperStay 14hr Lipstick:

Now I don’t know how Maybelline have done it, but I love them for it, they have created a beautiful creamy, high pigmented, long lasting lipstick. Personally I’ve never worn a lipstick for 14hrs, but I have worn a lipstick for at least 6-8hours.

And boy do these lipsticks last, the SuperStay lipsticks, are rich in colour, really lightweight on the lips, but its also comfortable which is even more important. I would however say that these do work a lot better, when using a lip liner underneath, the lip liner almost acts as a primer for your lipstick.

I own a lot of shades in this range, simply because they look amazing, and have amazing longevity!! With twenty shades to choose from, it could end up meaning, that you may own twenty lipsticks…

Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick:

Sometimes some of the cheapest brands have the best products. I already love Natural Collection as a brand, their products are simply amazing. But these lipsticks are a real stand out product for me. There are nineteen shades to choose from, which is a lot but at their price, you can afford all of them!! These lipsticks are seriously pigmented, everyone who i’ve managed to get them to try these lipsticks, fall in love. They give a soft, high-shine look, with amazing colour and they moisturise your lips!

When these lipsticks start to wear off, they do so naturally, they never look cakey or flakey, or crumbly. They just work, I find that it doesn’t matter whether you use a lip liner underneath these lipsticks or not, they do last well either way. Personally I do like to wear a lip liner, just to help define my lips and give them a little bit more shape to them, which of course helps when I apply the lipstick.
