Summer Lipsticks


Hello dolls! Just wanted to sneak a quick post in for before the holiday weekend! Let’s talk lipsticks!

Everyone who knows me well knows I’m obsessed with mascara, eyebrows, and lipstick! Those are my top 3 favorite makeup items to buy. So why not discuss some lipsticks that I think are perfect for the summer season?! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

From left to right:

Spellbound by NYX: This lipstick is one of the extra creamy round lipsticks from NYX. It’s a magenta that is one of my favorite pinks for the summer!

Aria by NYX: Aria can pass for a dupe for Rebel by Mac but it definitely has more pink undertones than Rebel. Either way it’s a gorgeous pink violet color with a matte finish.

Perfect Red by NYX: This red lipstick can be worn for any season but I personally love it during the summer and winter months. It’s a matte, bright blue-toned red. It gives you the classic Marilyn Monroe look and I will definitely be wearing it tomorrow for the 4th 😉

Merlot by NYX: I know on my arm it looks mighty similar to Aria but trust me they are different! NYX describes Merlot as a plum red but I describe it as a deep pink. It also has a matte finish.

Sierra by NYX: NYX describes this as a bronze with pink undertones. I agree! I usually where this lipstick when I’m trying to achieve the bronzed sun-kissed look.  Since it has a matte finish, I put gloss over it too.

Strawberry Daquiri by NYX: This color is a salmon pink that sometimes comes off as a coral pink on my lips. Either way it’s beautiful but tends to get too dry so I would suggest putting on gloss along with it. It’s a matte finish but it can get chalky whether or not your lips are moisturized.

Stormy Sahara by Maybelline: This lipstick is part of the Color Sensational Buffs collection. Nude lipsticks can be put on whenever during the year but this is the one I use during this season. At first I didn’t like it, but then I put some peach gloss on it and it worked. I feel like if you put it on alone it looks unnatural but if you put it on lightly it should look good.

Sweet Dewdrop by Chromavis: A little side note about this lipstick, I have no idea where you can get it! Sorry! I get a lot of cosmetics from international companies due to the fact that my mother works at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). I looked it up and it’s a company located in France but I have no idea how you would purchase it. I decided to mention it because who knows if one of you finds a way to get your hands on it! Anyway, its a gorgeous coral color with a satin finish! if you can find it, get it!

As you can see, I’m a HUGE fan of NYX Cosmetics. I love MAC and Revlon lipsticks too but I usually wear them during the Fall and Winter. I just prefer their colors for the colder months. You can get any of these lipsticks, besides Chromavis, at Ulta or even in some drugstores and department stores. If you have any good lipsticks that I should add, let me know!
