If you guys have been reading my blog for any consistent amount of time, you probably know that I’m obsessed with lipsticks (check out my post on nude lipsticks for date night here). I’m constantly looking for new shades to try out and rotating different color families based on the seasons. My everyday shade is some variation of nude, but this summer I’m also loving poppy bright reds, coraly oranges, and frosty blush.
Usually I won’t wear a really bright red or orange lip unless I’m filming something for work, but lately I’ve been trying them out with simple summer outfits, and I love it! A bright orange or coral lip looks great with a casual summer dress, and a red lip will always be good for date night no matter the season. Shop my favorite lipstick shades for Summer 2017 below, and read about each shade!
Neotropic by Tom Ford: This bright coraly orange is actually a lip balm. It has just the right amount of pigment and feels very moisturizing – perfect for low maintenance, peachy summer makeup.
Rhythm Red by Yves Saint Laurent: The world’s most perfect red. Love the satin, hydrating finish – plus, the glamorous gold tube feels like old Hollywood vintage vibes, which I love.
Blushing Pop by Clinique: I’m a big fan of Clinique’s infamous Chubby Sticks, but I recently discovered their Pop Lipsticks, which are both a color and primer for your lips. They have a bit more pigment than the Chubby Sticks, and come in so many different colors. I’m currently obsessed with this dusty rose shade, with a matte finish.
In Lust by Mac: This is a fun twist on my usual nude lippie – it has a little frostiness to it, which I’m totally not used to but which is actually super fun for summer. 90s vibes, in a good way!
