My 5 Favourite Spring/ Summer Lipsticks

Monday, 5 May 2014

Just a quick run through of some of my favourite lip products for spring and summer. 

Rimmel London 'Apocalips Lip Lacquer' in the colour 101 Celestial (£5.99)

I love this product as it is halfway between a lipstick and a lip gloss meaning that it has the high shine finish of a gloss but has the durability of a lipstick. 

Topshop's Lips collection in the shade 'Macaroon' (£8.00)

Just a very beautiful matte pink day lipstick, which can vary in how vivid it appears dependent on how it is applied. 

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in the shade 025 Peach Parfait (£7.99)

Having never tried a Revlon lip product til this one, it is definitely one of my all time favourite lip colours. As the name suggests it has the consistency of a moisturizing lip butter which means you can re-apply throughout the day without your lips drying out, but the best thing about this is the colour. It is a better than life rosey pink with a slight shimmer, I don't usually go for lipsticks with shimmer in them but this is very flattering to my pale-ish skin tone and looks beautiful with a tan.  

Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in the Shade 12 (£5.49)

Another Rimmel product but this time in collaboration with the wonderful Kate Moss. This is a matte orange/red lipstick which can be worn in the day or night dependent on how liberally you apply it (can Kate Moss do no wrong?). This is a lot like the Mac lipstick I reviewed in my April Favourites post *cough plug* however with a different finish and intensity, I am currently on the look out for a nail polish to match. 

 Maybelline Baby Lips in the shade 'Peachy Kiss' (£2.99)

Last but no means least this little baby is a tinted lip balm that moisturizes your lips as well as adding a subtle rosey shine, which is great for applying over matte lipstick for a different finish. The best thing however is the smell. Oh My God this smells amazing like a peachy-fruity-mmmmmm, just try it and you will understand. 

From bottom: Apocalips in Celestial, Topshop in Macaroon, Revlon in Peach Parfait, Rimmel by Kate in 12, Maybelline Baby Lips Balm.
