My Top 5 Summer Lipsticks 2014

As it’s summer here in the UK I thought I’d share my top 5 summer lipsticks with you. I’m such a lover of bright lipstick that when the suns out the nude shades go into hiding. I do have blue hair so I have to watch what colours I’m wearing as I’ve found certain colours that really don’t work with it. But these are my top 5 that I reach for most- and are blue hair safe!..

1. MAC Impassioned

This is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks, I fell in love as soon as I brought it. It’s described as an amped up fuchsia, but I’d describe it as more of a bright pink-red with a hint of coral. It’s a fairly creamy formula and gives opaque coverage. I like that it leaves a stain on the lips as it begins to fade. This is my go to bright lipstick.

2. MAC Candy Yum Yum

This lipstick also had to make it in my top 5, it’s such a cult classic in bright lipsticks. Candy Yum Yum is a blue based neon pink. This really isn’t for those who don’t like to stand out, it’s super bright and I think that’s why I love it even more. I’m not one to blend in with the crowd. I like that it’s a matte finish so lasts ages then leaves a strong stain as it fades.

3. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in 910 Shocking Coral

This is the most affordable out of all my picks, and the name pretty much gives the colour away. It’s a real bright coral, and applies super creamy without sinking into lines or emphasising dry patches. I love wearing this with winged liner and lots of mascara.

4. YSL Rouge Volupte in 29 Rose Opera

Out of all the lipsticks this is the most wearable, Rose Opera is a light-medium rose pink. It’s one of the most expensive lipstick I own, but one of my favourites. The Rouge Voluptes are one of my favourite formula of lipsticks, I just wish they lasted longer on the lips.

5. Lime Crime Great Pink Planet

Lime Crime is well known for their unusual colours as well as the holographic unicorn on the bullet. I own a few Lime Crime lipsticks and this is one of my favourites. Great Pink Planet is a wearable baby pink with a slight hint of violet in. The formula again is really creamy- I seem to have a thing for creamy lipsticks which is noticeable in this post!

What lipsticks are you loving this summer?
