top summer lipsticks best summer lipsticks for medium tan brown indian asian warm skintones


Given that this heat wave is lasting for, what seems like, forever I think my Top 5 Summer Blushers post was actually pretty timely after all. And as I mentioned in that post, here is the follow-up with me sharing my Top 5 Summer Lipsticks. These are the lipsticks I've found myself reaching for or just helping me feel all summery inside and out.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Abu Dhabi | post | £5.50

Although I feel this formula could be a lot more pigmented and more long-lasting, I love this nude peach shade on my complexion. It turns any lipstick shade I have into a lovely nude and looks perfect on its own too (I just have to be sure to use a nude lip liner underneath). It's an added bonus that it smells like a sweet treat!

MAC Amplified Lipstick - Cosmo | post | £15.50

This peachy pink lipstick is perfect for looking glowy and luminous and looks so perfect this season. The creamy formula glides on and doesn't need a helping hand. It is pigmented and makes the lips look fuller and plumper. Its the kind of shade that I feel happy seeing on my lips in my reflection.

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip - Echo Park | post | $6

I'm so impressed with this formula and can't wait to get more shades. It's long lasting, pigmented, creamy and has a semi-matte finish which means you get everything you would from a traditional liquid lipstick without the discomfort. The peach shade is another brightening shade for my complexion. 

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Matte Revolution - Secret Salma | post | £23

And of course my summer wouldn't be complete if it didn't contain the lipstick bearing my name ;) This pretty pink has a hint of rose and berry to it making it a little more dimensional than most of the other pinks in my collection. The formula is one of the best I've ever tried being matte in appearance but so creamy and comfortable on the lips.

Lord & Berry Timeless Kissproof Lipstick - Muse | £15

This liquid lipstick is a considerably comfortable formula and lasts a while without cracking or settling into lines. It's that classic mauve pink shade that we all love and looks great with almost any look. The applicator is a bit strange but I really enjoy wearing this. The formula is matte on the lips but contains some glitter which helps to make the lips look plumper. It's interesting.

I know summer is quickly coming to an end with school starting and all the shops pulling out their Autumn collections and props. But I have a feeling the late onset will mean a relatively late departure and summer is here to stay a little longer this year ;)

What has been your go-to summer lipstick this year? What lipstick looks like summer to you? Do you share a love for any of these in my Top 5? Let me know...

  1. I see a theme going on here ;) My Cosmo has run out and I'm torn between repurchasing it or not since it's a fail-proof color but I also swear myself off any color that's not deep-berry. Nevertheless, it's a lovely thing.

  7. I tend to wear brighter shades during Summer but the ones you have here are all beautiful and the kind of shades I'm always drawn to. The Coloupop Ultra Satin Lips have amazing formula, I absolutely adore all the ones I have, including Echo Park :)

  12. Echo Park looks like a stunning color! I've heard so many good things about their Ultra Satin formula, I would love to try them, I got some of their Ultra Mattes and I'm still doubting if I like them or not. All your choices are amazing <3
