National Lipstick Day ~ My Top Summer Lipsticks


Happy National Lipstick day everyone! I thought today would be good timing for my top summer lipsticks post.
Could you imagine life without ever wearing a lipstick ever again? well I was reading up on this national lipstick day and apparently the government tried to ban it years back, and people said that wearing lipstick should be an offence punishable by law..oh er! what a colourless life us beauty fans would have lived.

Today I have decided to pick out my favourite summer lipsticks, you'll have to excuse the state of them, they have been very loved and have been bashed around in my handbag a lot.

Here are my picks..

Top L-R
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm -Elusive
Loreal Collection Privee - Cheryl's Nude
Bottom L-R
MAC - Morange
Lancôme Rouge in Love - 340B Rose Boudoir

Revlon Colourburst - Elusive
These Revlon Matte Balms where very hot property when they came out, this was one of those products I had to check the hype for myself (probably like most things ha!) this was the first shade I picked up and its just a beautiful mid tone dusky pink, it looks lovely with a tan and so easy to wear.. especially if you don't fancy a bold lip or something nude its perfectly in-between.
The pointed like tip makes it a breeze to apply and having a matte finish means more staying power which is a bonus in the summer time.
A lot of people may think its more of a spring shade, I'm just not one for real blue toned Barbie pinks so this is my equivalent.
£7.99 Boots

Loreal Collection Privee - Cheryl's Nude
This was one of those lipsticks I wanted for ages but could never find, they where sold out in all my local Boots and Superdrug stores for ages, then one day I spotted it and that's where my search ended.
I just knew this was going to be the perfect little nude lippie! its has lovely brownish mauve tone to it and I'm all about the mauve.
I wear this if I'm playing up my eye makeup more or I just fancy a more natural day-time look, its quite sheer and slightly glossy so the lasting power isn't amazing as you could probably guess but its definitely worth re-applying. Its perfect to go with a lovely bronze makeup look.
£8.19 Boots

MAC - Morange (Amplified Finish)
Id say this is the perfect shade of orange, although I think I would love it a lot more if it was a matte finish as I find it slides about easy; during the day as I may spot a print of it on my chin which looks mighty fine ha!
It looks amazing with a tan and minimal makeup, I wore this at the weekend with a black top and a bright orange maxi skirt to match..it worked so well.
£15.50 MAC

Lancôme Rouge in Love - 34OB Rose Boudoir
I am close to finishing this, and it may be the oldest lipstick I own. I wore this all last summer and got so many compliments on this, I think its because the shade is so unique.. its a rose colour but a very bright and bold one, id say this was a similar finish to MAC morange as its pretty creamy with a slight shine to it, this one just wears a bit better.
I love the way this shade brightens up my face instantly and makes me look more put together without making much effort.
£21.50 Lancôme

A lot of websites that stock beauty items are running discounts on lipsticks today especially for national lipstick day, so if you fancy any of these now's your chance!

What are your favourite summer lipsticks? I have my pen and paper at the ready !

Love Zoe x
