The summer lip favourites

Since it looks like we're pretty much at the end of the Summer in the UK I thought I would share with you the lip shades I've been loving this summer. This isn't quite as huge as my normal summer lip favourites as I thought I would do a little bit of a more curated selection. 

Starting off I had to mention the Maybelline Super stay matte ink in the shade Lover, this has been one of those lip shades that I just feel like I can throw on with any makeup look. It's a beautiful browy toned medium pinky nude shade. These products are so comfortable on the lips and are something I reach for when I want a super long lasting matte lip but I don't want something a dry as your traditional matte liquid lip. If you are a regular reader you will know I absolutely love the NYX Butter glosses and the shade Sunday Mimosa is the perfect summer shade. It's a beautiful coral gloss which I have been loving both for a milky coral shade alone or over the top of other orange toned lip shades. 

Next up we have the Smashbox Be legendary lipstick in Fireball. This is the most beautiful orange toned red shade and reminds me a lot of Mac Lady Danger however I find it is a little more red toned. The Smashbox matte lips are so beautifully comfortable on the lips, they don't dry down as much as some bullet matte lips but they give the appearance of being very matte on the lips. 

Maybelline, NYX, Smashbox, Mac, Revolution, Jeffree Star 
Mac Breathing fire is the more raspberry toned pink shade rather than candy yum yum which is more blue toned. I find this one more flattering on my skin tone personally. This is a very matte lip shade but isn't too uncomfortable. That being said the Smashbox one is definitely more comfortable. I have been obsessed with all three of the Soph x Revolution lipsticks lately however my favourite is definitely Cake which is the lightest of the three. It's just the perfect brown toned pinky nude and the formula of these lipsticks is just so gorgeous and comfortable. They're also such a fab price it would be crazy not to try them. 

Finally I wanted to mention Jeffree Star 818 from this years summer collection. This is the most amazing bright pink, coral almost neon shade. As many of you will know I've recently dyed my hair pink and I am just looking the combo of the bright pink lip with my bright pink hair. If you love 714 from J star then I definitely recommend you give this one a go as it's like the more sophisticated older sister. 

That's it for today, what summery colours have you been reaching for recently?
