Lime Crime Countessa Flourescent, Maybelline Hot Plum & Shocking Coral ColorSensational.
Hi lovelies, I’m Sophia and I blog over at Tattooed Tealady
! I’m such a big fan of Glambeautys
, loving everything from Liza’s beauty reviews to her YouTube videos and tutorials, so I’m really excited to be doing a little guest post for you all today, all about my three favourite Bright Summer Lips!
There’s three perfect shades I’ve been loving over the warmer months, finding them perfect for finishing off a look on a bright summers day. But first, I always make sure to give my lips a little pamper before popping on lipstick, and I really recommend using a lip scrub and a balm as your first steps, for super soft lips. I love the high-street offerings from Lush for my lip scrub (the Bubblegum Lip Scrub (£5.50)
is a sure winner every time!), followed by Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lips Soothing and Repairing Balm (£2.59)
I carry out these two steps each morning, and it helps to keep my lips smoother and plumper with the scrub, and dry skin at bay. Not forgetting it makes your lipstick go on and
look better! Once you’ve smoothed and soothed, your lips are ready for a pop of colour.
Lime Crime Countessa Flourescent £12.50) is not only one of my favourite summer pinks, but one of my favourite Lime Crime lipsticks, too! It’s bright, it’s vivid and it’s definitely eye-catching, but the blue undertones give it a subtle touch which means this bright pink lip can be worn anywhere, for any occasion, without looking out of place or too stand-out. Lime Crime lipsticks have a beautifully soft, creamy formula and the colour pay-off is incredible (maybe even the best there is for lipsticks!), so one application is all you need for a pack-a-punch colour that easily lasts several hours before needing a touch up. Plus the packaging is amazing, what’s not to love?!
If you’re after something more budget-friendly, I two offerings from my favourite drugstore lipstick range, the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Lipsticks in 906 Hot Plum (£7.19)
and 910 Shocking Coral (£7.19)
. For me, Maybelline are the ultimate brand for high-quality lipsticks at a budget-friendly price and their vivids range has a formula to be reckoned with; creamy, soft, highly pigmented and extremely comfortable when on, and some of the most incredible shades you can find at a high-street price. 906 Hot Plum
is a bright, vivid plum purple, which looks incredible with a summer golden goddess look, whilst 910 Shocking Coral
is more toned down, a pretty pink coral that goes well with a neutral eye.
So there you have it, my top three bright summer lips, I turn to these three shades the most over summer, some of my favourite stand-out shades. What’s your favourite go-to lipstick for a bright summer lip? I’d love to hear any brand or shade recommendations you have!
