Summer Shades

The sun doesn't go down till almost 10 now but the weather outside is horrible. My only solution is to keep pretending that its spring/summer soon and wearing some of my favourite lip colours. Summer is the one time I feel like I can experiment with colour and finishes.

Revlon Colour Burst Matt Balm in Unapologetic
Like a giant marker the matt balms have amazing pigmentation. They stay really well and this coral shade is perfect for summer. I took this to Tunisia for our beach holiday back in october. Its perfect because it stains a little bit so even when you've eaten or drank a lot, you don't need to top it up.

Models Own Colour Lip Stix in Purple Passion
This is a pale lilac colour, not your normal or traditional lip colour but a great one. It looks a little weird if you've never experimented with colour before but I love this. The texture is a little balmy but I can forgive it.

Body Shop Colour Crush in 105 Coral Cutie
This has an amazing glossy finish and the colour pay off is incredible. Another one that stains, this is possibly my favourite summer lipstick of all. The name confuses me though as to me this is much more of a bold orange than a coral.

Mac Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum
A blogger cult classic, no summer holiday is complete without it. Its just so bright and lasts for hours cause of the matt finish.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked
Very different from the other colours that I've selected but sometimes I feel like summer is the time to strip back and go for simple looks which show off your glowing skin and your natural beauty. I love this for every day, its my new favourite neutral.
