The 5 Lipsticks You Need for Summer

The 5 Lipsticks You Need for Summer

I have so many beautiful lipsticks, and I feel like I never get around to trying all of them. Does that happen to anyone else? I'll have the best of intentions to wear lipstick one day, and then I'll just completely forget or feel too lazy to keep it up all day, and I'll head out without it.

I've been making more of an active effort in the past few weeks to keep my jar of lipsticks out on my bathroom counter in the morning and try some new things. These are the five (that I already had in my arsenal) that I've tried recently and am loving for summer:

1. Anthropologie's Albeit Lipstick in "Peony".

Have you ever checked out the Anthro beauty department? If not, you must—I always find THE BEST goodies there, including this gorgeous Peony hue. It's the perfect coral color for summer that's just the right amount of bright.

2. Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick in "Exposed".

Alright, hear me out on this one. If there's one thing that Kylie Jenner knows, it's her lipstick. And if I want something that's going to stay on all day, I always reach for her matte liquid lipstick—my favorite nude hue is "Exposed". I wear it year-round!

3. Jouer Cosmetics Lip Crème in "Pétale de Rose".

If you want a darker, more brooding hue, Jouer Cosmetics Lip Crème in "Pétale de Rose" is for you! It's a pink/purple hue (it almost reminds me of red wine-stained lips) and, like the Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick, it stays on all day or night—even through meals!

4. Tory Burch Pas de Tout Lipstick.

If you want a soft pink that shimmers a bit, this Tory Burch lipstick is for you! It's the ultimate light lipstick that's perfect for every day—it almost looks like a gloss, which is better for work days than other heavier shades or formulas. It's one of my faves!

5. Mac Cosmetics Cremesheen in "Speed Dial".

It looks bright pink, but hear me out—this is the most fun color for summer! I love wearing this when I want to feel a little flirty. It's great for vacays and is almost like rocking a red lip in the winter—it's a fun, bold statement that people will definitely compliment you on.


Here are some other lipstick brands and colors I'm loving for summer:
