Hey everyone! It’s summer time so it’s time to show off those lips with beautiful, bold colours! My favourite summer time shades are definitely corals and oranges, they go well with my skintone and are easy to wear. I love both drugstore and high end lipsticks, so here’s a list of my favourite coral/orange lipsticks.
Wet N Wild Megashield Lipstick in Within These Adobe Walls – $2.99 on Drugstore.com
This lipstick is one of WnW’s best selling shades and it’s beautiful! It’s a creamy peachy coral colour that doesn’t dry out the lips. It looks like a natural, creamy coral but you can definitely build it up and make it brighter. This doesn’t fill in the fine lines of my lips. It’s very lightweight and stays on for 3-4 hours.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak – $22 on Sephora.com
This is the only lipstick I have from Urban Decay and I love it! This doesn’t show up too bright on my lips which I like for an every day colour. It’s creamy, and with a lip balm underneath, makes my lips look silky smooth. It’s lightweight and lasts for quite some time, I’ll say about 4-5 hours, which is pretty good for a lipstick.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler – $5 on nyxcosmetics.com
This is a gloss that’s opaque enough to be worn alone. This adds a little orange to my naturally pinkish lips, giving it a beautiful coral colour. It’s not sticky, very comfortable to wear. This doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter so it just makes the lips look full and juicy. The downside to this is that, it definitely doesn’t last as long as a lipstick because it is a lip gloss after all.
Maybelline Color Sensational in Coral Crush – $7.49 on Ulta.com
This, for some reason, doesn’t photograph well. It’s a lot brighter in person than it is in the picture above. This is kind of like a bright, hot coral colour that leans more towards the pink end. There is this smell in Maybelline lipsticks that I really dislike though.
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange – $16 on Maccosmetics.com
This one is also a lot brighter in person. This is a straight up bright orange colour. It’s a beautiful, fun alternative to a classic red lip. I thought I wouldn’t get much use out of this, but I’m actually already down half a tube! You can dab on a little bit and blend it out for a more natural orange lip. This formula is amazing – super creamy, lightweight and I love the MAC lipstick smell. :p
Those are my favourite coral/orange shades for summer. What’s your favourite colour to wear in the summer?
