My Top 5 Favourite Summer Lipsticks

My Favourite Summer Lipsticks
1. Mac - Girl About Town 2. Collection Cream Puff - Fairy Cake 3. Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque - Fuchsia 4. Maybelline Color Drama - Fab Orange 5. Mac - Impassioned

In no particular order I'm going to kick off with Impassioned by Mac. This lipstick is absolutely gorgeous! It is part of the Amplified family which means the watermelon colour packs a punch on the lips. Like all Mac lipsticks it retails for £15.50 however if you want a cheaper alternative Revlon's Matte Balm in Unapologetic is very similar in colour but for me the texture is awful as it cakes and flakes on my lips.

Equally as beautiful is Girl About Town by Mac which is a deep pink/purple colour. Again it is part of the Amplified family and it is perfect for a night out. I usually wear it with fresh skin, false lashes, no eye shadow which results in the lipstick to do all the talking. I have gotten so many complaints wearing this so I do highly recommend you check it out.

I am a lover of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks so when they released the Rouge Edition Aqua Laque I was knew it was going to be a staple this summer. When I was swatching all the colours and Fuchsia Perche was definitely the colour that caught my eye the most. When you first apply the texture feels almost like water and has a wet look to the lips. However within 10 minutes it dries to a stain like finish. It almost looks like you have just eaten a raspberry ice block! It is perfect for those days were you don't want to be worrying about your lipstick moving about on your face. This product retails for £8.99.

My top 5 summer lipsticks cannot be without an orange! The orange I'm loving this summer is the Maybelline Color Drama in 410 Fab Orange. This is just perfect! It applies like butter, stays on like a tattoo and the orange is perfect for day time. The only thing I wish I could change would be for it not be in a pencil because sharping gets very messy.

My next favourite is cheap and cheerful retailing at £2.99. It is the Collection Cream Puff lip cream in the colour Fairy Cake. It smells like cupcakes and has a soft moose like texture to the lips. It is a dark carol, it dries almost matte and it feels very comfortable on the lips. For the price and the quality this has definitely earned a place in my top 5!

What are your favourite summer time lipsticks?!


  1. Girl About Town is such a fun shade for spring and summer, I'll have to pick that one up next year.

  2. Fairy Cake and Impassioned looks gorgeous! Wow! I think I'd wear it anytime honestly! Gorgeous <3
