I am a huge lip product fan and love changing it up between shades and finishes, they're probably my favourite product to play with.
With lots of you going on holiday lately, I thought you guys might be interested in hearing my recommendations for lip products to wear in the warm weather!
I hope you like it!
1. Rimmel Apocalips - 'Apocalyptic'
My love is strong for these guys, they are basically a liquid lipstick so you're getting the pigmentation and wear of a lipstick and the hydration of a gloss.
The colour range is fabulous, from nudes to bright pinks they have you covered, and they are super pigmented so be careful to stay within your lip line.
After a couple of hours the gloss will fade, leaving you with a beautiful stain to the lips that's not drying in the slightest.
Of them all, Apocalyptic is my favourite shade, it's a bright pink that screams Summer and makes these babies some of my favourite lip products!
2. Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencil - 'In With Coral'.
These beauties are Maybelline's take on the Nars lip pencils and they are a beautiful product.
Very nicely pigmented, they have a smooth creamy texture and simply glide on the lips, giving a beautiful colour.
Even though they're a pencil, they don't feel rough on the lips and don't dry them out at all, they give a satin finish at first and dry down to a slightly more matte finish after a few hours.
In With Coral is a beautiful slightly shocking coral shade and if you can't wear that type of shade in Summer, then when can you?!
3. Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm - 'Vivacious'
These balms feel so comfortable on the lips, they're glossy and have a great amount of pigment to them, nothing shocking but enough to look like you've made an effort with your look.
They give so much hydration to the lips and last well and are easy to top up on the go, a great Summer product really.
My favourite shade I have is 'Vivacious', a brighter pink shade that does a great job of brightening up the face and finishing off a Summer look.
Once the gloss wears off, you're left with a balmy stain to the lips that feels so comfortable, a great product.
4. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - 'Pink Pong'
These beauties are a great option for those of you that prefer your bright lip to be matte and less messy.
They glide on effortlessly, have a great pigment and dry down to a matte finish in a couple of minutes.
There's a great shade range here and they last very well on me, a good 6 hours, before being topped up so they're a total winner in my book!
5. Maybelline Colour Elixir - 'Mandarin Rapture'
If you suffer from dry lips or just prefer a glossy finish, then look no further than these babies.
Offering both hydration and gloss, they have a good pigment without being sticky at all.
Once the gloss wears off, you're left with a nice stain on the lips without drying them out at all so you guys should definitely check them out!
