I’ve been switching up my makeup a lot recently, and I’ve found myself drawn towards lighter versions of basically every makeup product. One of these switches is definitely with lipsticks, and I’m really enjoying tints, glosses and balms as an alternative to the heavier formulas I love throughout winter! Here are some of my favourite formulas:
The Revlon Lip Butters were everything back in the day when they were first released and I’ve been holding onto the Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart for far too long! I believe they’re now discontinued and they’ve become really hard to find but there are still some places that you can buy them. If you can get your hands on them, they’re the perfect formula for a beautifully fresh summer lip. I have no idea why such a gorgeous product would disappear off the shelves!
I could go on and on about the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, particularly in the shade Rose. It’s such a beautiful hint of colour with the right amount of shine for the perfect strawberry stained lip look. So summery, and well…. fresh.
For a subtler gloss, I always reach for the Dior Lip Glow in Coral which changes colour with the heat from your lips. It’s a soft, warm glow that compliments light makeup beautifully. I often pair this with a bit of concealer, mascara and a peachy blush for a quick summer makeup look.
I actually purchased the Laura Geller Colour Drenched Lipgloss in Cafe au Lait for my mum’s birthday as part of a gift set, but I’ve been stealing it back to use a lot! It’s a perfect pigmented summer gloss with a gorgeous juicy finish. I love switching my brown-toned nude lipsticks for high-shine glosses in the summertime and this one is a beautiful option for that.
For something a little less glossy, but definitely more of a satin sheen, the Nars Lip Pencil in Rikugien is a must-have. I adore the formula of Nars lip pencils (or anything from Nars for that matter!), and this is definitely a go-to shade for a high pigment, easy-to-wear lip.
Speaking of being quick and easy, the Buxom Lip Creme in Dolly is for the girls who love a lotta shine, and a voluminous pout. If you don’t mind the tingle, this is such a mouth-watering peach pink gloss that looks absolutely gorgeous on. They have such a massive shade selection, but this is by far my favourite!
