Summer is almost here, which means it is time to start being more daring with your lip colors. J & M are here to share with you their top favorite summer lip colors!
M’s Lip Picks!
NYX Butter Gloss | Raspberry Tart 21 | $4.99
This gloss looks like more of a fall/winter lip color, however, since it’s a fairly sheer formula you can build it up to the purple you think looks best. I love applying NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Prune on before to make the purple color even more drastic! NYX is one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands. These butter glosses are very inexpensive and they are high quality.
Milani | Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick | Orchid 64 | $5.99
The perfect pink summer lip color! For a matte lipstick I have not had any problems with my lips drying out, and it stays on forever. This lipstick goes on smooth and is very pigmented. This is a recent purchase of mine and I am so glad I chose this color. I am starting to build up my Milani lip collection because their colors are GORGEOUS!
NYX | Butter Gloss | Cupcake 18 | $4.99
Another NYX butter gloss of course. NYX Cupcake is a great everyday lip gloss. The sheerness of butter glosses allow you to build up if you want a more dramatic lip color. A great color for a natural summer look. I love wearing this to work because it isn’t too over the top but still gives my lips some extra color!
J’s Lip Picks!
NYX | Soft Matte Lip Cream | Milan 11 | $5.99
I absolutely love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They are super affordable, you can find them just about anywhere, (Ulta, Target, drugstores, online) and there are tons of colors to choose from. Milan is my perfect summer pink and gives your lips a beautiful pop of color! It has a super lightweight, matte consistency so your lips don’t feel drenched with product. Although the staying power is not perfect, the price point and pigmentation win me over!
MAC | Matte Lipstick | Please Me A82 | $16.00
This is the PERFECT summer pinky nude and looks good with just about any outfit or skin tone! It’s a matte finish so I definitely recommend making sure your lips are very moisturized before putting this one on, as with any MAC matte lipstick. You can rock this color at a pool party or a night out with friends; summer color must-have!
Tarte | LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint | Eternal | $24.00
The Tarte Lipsurgence matte line is awesome for summer because of the silky, lightweight consistency the product gives off. This one is ideal for summer because of the coral, orangey color so it gives your face a beautiful summer glow! It’s also perfect to through in your purse to touch up throughout the day because of the easy tube application. This is my go-to summer lip product!
