My Favorite Summer Lip Colors


The weather has been pretty up and down here in NYC but my routine still remains to be quick and lazy. I think a good, bright lip color that suits your skin tone is an easy fix for perking up your face, especially for those who rush in the morning like me. These are my favorites as I am presently guilty of wanting to have all of these in my bag at the same time, all the time.

NARS Funny Face 
MAC Hibiscus
NARS Heat Wave
Revlon ColorBurst Gloss in Strawberry

The two NARS lipsticks are my first NARS lip products ever! I had a gift certificate and used it to buy these. What's really sad is that I blindly picked these two because they were used in previous J.Crew lookbooks. I'm such a consumer. Luckily they didn't turn out looking terrible on me!

If you can find MAC Hibiscus at a local counter near you, I highly suggest it. It's an excellent coral for summer in my favorite MAC lipstick formula, Cremesheen. It sold out online the first day it was up but I found it easily at the MAC counter at Macy's in Herald Square. I love this color and the packaging is pretty cute. It might be hard to tell in the photo, but it is not as bright as NARS Heat Wave.

I can't speak for the other shades in the Revlon ColorBurst Gloss line but I do love Strawberry. It's a perfect bright pink gloss just on its own. The formula can easily be compared to other high end non-glossy lip glosses.

Writing this post just thankfully reminded me to pick up some lip balm with SPF...
