We all know that wearing a thick lipstick can be a little bit too heavy, especially when the weather is warm and breezy outside in the hotter seasons. Here’s our top recommendations that are perfect for summer lunch dates, a road trip to the beach or simple days lazing in the sun.
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipsticks
I’m a true believer in the idea that as the weather brightens up, so should your lippie! Vibrant lip products freshen up any look, and the strong pop of colour on the lips means you can get away with less makeup everywhere else – perfect for lazy Summer days. I love the Maybelline Vivids as an affordable option for crazy loud colours that are surprisingly flattering and wear decently throughout the day.

NYX Butter Lipgloss
Creamy lip-glosses that provide an opaque shiny finish are absolutely perfect to quickly swipe on to effortlessly plump up your lips. If you’ve yet to find a non-sticky and comfortable gloss, then these Butter Lipglosses from affordable US brand NYX are a must-have! With a variety of colours from nudes and pinks to vampy purples and reds, these versatile lip products are on-trend for this season.

Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF 20
Lip balms are generally a dull topic, but this Summer ensure you’re using a lip balm with SPF protection as part of your daily routine. The sun’s harsh rays can cause sunburn, dryness and flakiness to your lips, so it’s super important to nourish them with SPF protection. Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF 20 are fantastic at this as they feel lightweight yet plump and hydrate the lips beautifully with the added bonus of sun protection.

Lush Lip Scrub
Following in the same theme of nourishing your lips after a day of dealing with the sunshine, exfoliation is the word this season. Using a lip scrub, whether it’s homemade or bought like the delicious Lush Lip Scrub, removes the dryness on your lips and leaves baby soft skin behind. This also preps the lips for smooth application of your favourite Summer lipstick!
$9.95, available from Lush
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter
If you dislike the dehydrated feeling of traditional lipsticks but still crave that wash of colour, then tinted lip balms or mega-hydrating lipsticks like Revlon Lip Butters are for you! These glossy and moisturising lip butters provide a healthy dose of colour that you can easily apply on the go. With a variety of bright, Summer lovin’ colours available in the range, these are certainly worth a go this season.
