Top 7 Summer Lipsticks

I am currently obsessed with lipsticks. Especially bright colors for spring and summer have taken over my lips (and my heart). Maybe Zoella´s latest video also had something to do with it. I now really want the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Peach Poppy but they don´t have it in Germany. So I´m going to have to stick with what I have in my own drawer for now. They´re are quite a few bright lipsticks in it.

For me, summer and spring are the only seasons where you can get away with wearing orange lipstick. I am not yet brave enough to go full orange, but the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 027 Juicy Papaya is great for starters. It really just gives your lips a slight tint and mostly adds just a dewy look to them. The color it has on my lips is not as orange as it´s in the packaging. I love the shimmer it gives my lips.

Whenever I feel a little bit braver, I go for the Astor Soft Sensation Lipcolor Butter in 005 Pretty Poppy. It´s not as sheer as the Revlon Lip Butter and really gives you orange lips though it´s still a light orange. It´s definitely not as bold as any other lipstick. I really love the color with a slight coral undertone. The formulae of the Lipcolor Butters is amazing. They feel really light, are easy to apply, last for a long time and give your lips the perfect shimmer. They are also supposed to moisturize your lips as they are a part lip balm.

A lipstick that has really surprised me is the Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 13 Love Me. It´s a really nice nude peach that´s perfect for this season. I really didn´t expect much from this lipstick but it has blown my mind. It actually stays on for a long time and it stays true to its color on the lips. It doesn´t have any glitter in it, so it just gives you a nice dewy look.

I think I have talked about the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in 148 Summer Pink on this blog before. I am absolutely in love with it. It´s not a bold pink but with the glitter in it and its sheer formula it makes your lips look so nice. I really love it for summer and spring because the sun reflects beautifully on it (besides the obvious: the color is gorgeous!). Also this one smells really nice!

Quite a new addition to my collection is the L√≥real Paris Color Riche Lipstick in 285 Pink Fever. It immediately spoke to me because of the pretty packaging and the even prettier color. It´s quite similar to the Maybelline Lipstick but then also so different. It´s not sheer and it has bigger glitter particles in it making it look different. I think this tone of pink really suits me well and I love the light formula.

Surprisingly, I don´t own many coral lip products but the one I absolutely adore is the Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish in 030 Strawberry´s Secret. Whenever I wear this I get so many compliments on how pretty the color it. It´s quite a bold color without any glitter, so it just adds up to a dewy look. It really stays on for a long time even though it looses it´s shiny finish after I´ve eaten something.  It´s really easy to apply with the doe foot applicator as well (because that´s important with these lip stains!).

For when I am feeling really bold and brave, I´ve got the Topshop Lipstick in Brighton Rock. It´s a bright matte pink that I love to top off with a glittery lipgloss. Even though it´s matte it feels really smooth on my lips and hasn´t dried them out once. I think this is perfect for summer parties or just generally having fun.

As you can see pink, orange and coral are definitely my colors for spring and summer. I tend to wear darker lipsticks from time to time but this year I really want to stick to bright colors to lighten up my days. I honestly can´t pick a favorite out of all these lipsticks because they´re all so different from each other and each of them is perfect for a different day and a different event. I think I´ll stay with the more sheer colors for uni though as they are easier to care for and fade pretty evenly.
