Transition into Summer: Lips

27 comments



A lot of you will be kind of confused after reading the title of this post, but here in Australia we are in the middle of spring and the days are only getting hotter and hotter meaning summer is just around the corner. Living in Melbourne means that today is actually kind of rainy, but yesterday when I got thinking about these summer-ready lip shades it was a scorcher!

1. Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in 'Unapologetic'
This colour screams "summer" to me and was the very first thing that came to mind when I was brainstorming for this post. It is probably the most vivd lipstick I own that isn't a red and almost has a fluorescent quality to it. Although it is matte, which isn't my first preference for a summer lip, the colour definitely weighs it out!

2. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in 'Juicy Papaya'
I picked this up on a whim after seeing Tanya Burr use it in the most stunning makeup tutorial. Everything about it appeals to the warmer months from the colour to the finish to the fruity name! It is on the sheerer side so it's perfect as an everyday lip as well!

3. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in 'Sweet Tart'
This seems to be a cult favourite when it comes to the lip butters and for a good reason! It is super pigmented considering the formulation and is the most flattering, bright pink shade. This was my favourite lipstick for months on end when I first picked it up.

4. Lasting Finish by Kate Moss for Rimmel in '16'
As much as I dislike the lack of creativity when it comes to the naming of these lipsticks, the formula is on pointe. While I am a huge, huge lover of '103' this comes in close second. It is a stunning coral shade that is on the creamy side, so it applies like a dream.

5. Cover Girl Jumbo Gloss Balm in '220'
There is no other descriptive word that comes to mind except 'hot pink' and a very true shade of hot pink it is. This is very blue toned and is not the most complimentary colour, but I really do love it. Worn more sheerly you can definitely get away with it!

What is your favourite summer lip?

  2. I'm so jealous that your heading back into Summer! Those colours are incredible. Never really have the guts to wear those colours personally though. I'm only just branching into darker pinks and purples for Autumn! X

  3. I used to hate lipstick and blush because I was scared of colour. I really believe it's all about easing yourself into it and over time you will find yourself rocking things you thought you never would!

  4. That Cover Girl one looks super vibrant! I really love Unapologetic and Juicy Papaya. I've neglected a lot of the Revlon Lip Butters I bought a while ago, Sweet Tart being one of them, but your post reminded me I should give them a bit more attention.

  9. The Rimmel shade is gorgeous! It's going on my 'I need to take a look at this when I get a chance' list. Our "summer" is over, we're moving into colder months so I'm pretty envious of you right now!
