Summer Lipsticks

Just like most of my makeup, my lipstick changes depending on the season. During the Autumn and Winter I sway more towards the berry and red shades, whereas in the hotter months I like to opt for nude, coral or pink hues. 

The Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon in Colossal Coral* is one of my favourite budget options at the moment as the soft coral hue can be blended out to create a subtle sheen on the lips. Unlike other coral lipsticks, this offering isn't too overpowering in colour - Perfect if you're a first time wearer. If I am feeling a strong coral lipstick then I have been enjoying the Nars Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil. It's easy to apply and can be sheered out or built up to create an intense orange hue. 

For a bold, yet nourishing lip colour, I always reach for the Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Passion Pop. This staple red hue has a built in primer for longevity and the hydrating formula means that it sits comfortably on the lips for hours. Although red isn't a shade I'd usually opt for in the Summer, I can't help but apply it whenever I am wearing a monochrome outfit just for a pop of colour. 

If coral or red isn't what I'm feeling then I know that nude is a fail safe. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London is a creamy beige that glides on to the lips and gives you a top up of moisture. With a mousse-like texture, these are perfect for those who haven't dabbled in liquid lipsticks before or would prefer to have a hydrating offering during the Summer. 

I don't wear pink lips very often, but the Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Rosy Nude* is one of my most worn lipsticks out of the bunch. It's pink hue is flattering on my skin tone and the creamy formula is one that can be re-applied again and again with ease. 

What are your go-to Summer lipsticks?
