Guest Post: My Lip Product Choices for the Summer

Firstly I would like to take the chance to thank Lauren for giving me the chance to do a guest post on her blog.

I love Summer, it’s my favourite time of the year. I love everything from the hot weather to the new collections in stores. I don’t think we’ve had much Sun, at least there’s a few weeks left to go. Summer is the perfect time to inject some colour into your look. be it bright eyeshadows or nail polishes etc.  I’ve been using a selection of lip products which have become some of my favourites. By the way if you haven’t heard already I’m a lip product junkie. I find that a nice lip colour has an impact on how your makeup looks. I prefer to go for neutral colours as they tend to suit me alot more than vibrant shades. I would love to pick up a bright red lipstick, but they always tend  to drown me out.

These are the lip products I’ve been using this summer....


Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Rose Petal

This gorgeous lipstick is inexpensive.  The creamy pink/peachy shade looks really natural and it also doesn’t dry your lips out which is a plus. It would be good in any collection.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Shy Girl

I got this quite a while ago as my Back to MAC lipstick. It’s a lovely shade of peach which is perfect for the Summer. I have been wearing this alot. Definitely one of my favourites.

MAC Lustre Lipstick in Patisserie

Another Back to Mac lippie, I was surprised I hadn’t heard people raving about this one. The lipstick is a sheer pink colour that would suit alot of people. I’m glad I spotted this one. This would look perfect with just about any makeup look.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Ever Hip

This is a recent purchase from the Fashion Flower Collection. I was quite hesitant at first about buying this lippie as it is a quite vibrant shade. After much consideration and swatching instore,  I decided to take the plunge and purchase. I am delighted I did in the end. This pink/coral shade is my first step into vibrant shades and it’s not like anything in my collection. This lipstick is Limited Edition so get it while you still can. I have a feeling this one will go quick.

Lipglosses/Lip Balm

NYC Lippin’ Large Lip Plumper in Peach Parfait

This lipgloss is a lovely peach shade that comes up quite sheer on the lips. I don’t tend to like lip plumpers  as I despise the tingly sensation.  I haven’t had the problem with this product . This lipgloss retails for under 3 euro so it’s a bargain.

Revlon Colourburst Lipgloss in Pink Ice

This is my one and only Revlon product. It’s never been a brand that’s really pulled me in like others. I hear their products are amazing though.  Do you have any product recommendations for me?? The Colorburst packaging is  gorgeous  as the lid has the look of patent leather which I love. Another thing I like is the smell of this lipgloss. I can’t put my finger on what the scent is but it smells yummy all the same. This lipgloss is a pale pink shade with a hint of shimmer.  On my lips it comes up as a sheer colour which looks pretty.

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Petting Pink

I am prone to plenty of dry lip moments. I can’t praise this product enough. Not only does it leave my lips in tip top condition but it gives you lovely pink lips. This is definitely a product that should be purchased for your everyday makeup bag. For those of you going on holidays, this product contains SPF 15. Not only will your lips look gorgeous but they will be protected too.

What have been your favourite lip products during the summer??

I want to thank Lauren again for giving me the opportunity to do this post. I hope you all enjoyed it and are having a great summer.

  1. The product that beats all the rest in my opinion is the MAC lip conditioner. I have all the shade and use them year round. Nothing else comes close to being as good at moisturizing as well as giving beautiful color.

    If you want to see the other shades available and read a bit more about them I recently did a post on my blog:


    Great guest blog btw!
