Summer Brights

I love a bright lip when the sun is out.  I don’t wear lip colour on a daily basis as I’m too lazy to maintain it but with minimal other makeup and a nice summer dress I love to add a bold lip.  These are just a few that will be in my Summer selection.

Makeup Revolution Amazing Sheer Lip Gloss.  This would be perfect for the beach when you are wearing only a tinted moisturiser or CC cream and a bit of bronzer.  It creates a lovely “wet” lip look without being sticky. This Lip Gloss was from the Advent Calendar so it does not have a shade name.  It a vibrant pinky peach.


Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Glossy Finish Lip Stick in Red Sunrise. This is another glossy finish lip product. I love that this  is in the crayon style but do find that they are harder to apply.  There is slightly more of a red undertone in this shade to the one above. I would be more confident to throw a product like this into my beach bag over a lipstick which I fear would melt.

NXY Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink. I said bright and this lipstick is definitely that! Shocking Pink is the only name for this shade.  With a blue undertone it is very Barbie like.  This would look amazing on a summers day with a Navy or Purple dress. Its a Matte finish so will be long wearing, perfect for a garden party or long day out in the sunshine.

Makeup Revolution Lipstick. This is another one from the Advent Calendar so does not have a shade name.  It’s a beautiful true pink.  This is more sheer than the NYX one, so if you are like me and are not very good at topping up your lipstick throughout the day then this one wears off nicely.

Tanya Burr Matte Lip in Christmas Stocking. You can’t have a post about bright lip colours without having a bright red! Now, although this one is called Christmas Stocking I think it is the perfect combination of red and orange which creates an amazing summer time colour.  With a white dress or white top and demin shorts this would look amazing!
