My Current Favorite Summer Lippies

I’m going to ruin this for you, the majority of this post is pink-coral lipsticks. I don’t know why, but I am full blown obsessed at the moment. This post has three. If you are interested in how I justify three of basically the same shade of lipstick, please read on. You will also read (and see) a nude, an orange and, a fuchsia (just for some variety).

Lets start with some fuchsia. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 19 is a Sephora exclusive shade (and its gorgeous). It can pull more purple or more pink depending on how much you layer on the super moisturizing formula. This was also a favorite last summer.

Now for the watermelon/coral-pink situation. First up is MAC Crosswires. Another longtime love, this formula is thicker, but not slip and slide thick. Its a great shade.

The next of this exact same shade (I am obsessed) is Bite Beauty’s Rose which you can get at Sephora. This one is just a bit more pink than the other coral/pink shades. The formula is really nice, not too heavy or thin but just right.

Okay last watermelon (promise!) MAC See Shear. This formula is the most sheer and hydrating of the three, but it can be layered for full on color. It is also the more red of the three (its really not very different at all, I’m reaching now).

My new favorite nude is Lipstick Queen’s Hang Ten, which is ultra hydrating and has SPF for that summer sun protection (burned lips = not cute). You can get this guy at Ulta.

My only on trend orange lip that made the cut is Revlon Rendezvous. First of all, its a stain. Second of all, its moisturizing. I can’t think of a formula better suited for summer. The chubby stick thing also makes it super easy to apply.

All done! What about you? What lipsticks have you thinking summer (like I need more items for my shopping list)?
