You know I’m not a makeup expert, right? Yeah, I’m definitely not. But I do love makeup and all things beauty! So today I’m sharing my Top 5 favorite lip products for summer time!
I really am just an easy, tinted lip balm kind of girl. I rarely slap on the fussier lipsticks (or look in the mirror to apply color!) for every day.
In the summer, I stick to my go-to easy to apply formulas, but lean towards brighter colors. Because, well, why not?
That’s my absolute FAVORITE tinted lip balm! It’s the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral. I just love this formula! It’s truly the most pigmented lip balm I’ve ever tried. It feels amazing on your lips, too! And this coral color is just perfect for my complexion and preferred color intensity.
Here are a few of my other favorite, non-fussy lip products in bright colors, perfect for summer! (And bonus – 3 are drugstore!)
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in India Intrigue | Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Bright Berry | Revlon Color Burst Balm Stain in Smitten | Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate |
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral
All of these lip products are so lovely and moisturizing on your lips, you’ll forget that there is serious color there too!
Here are some swatches!
From L to R:
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment | Do I need to say more gushing things? It’s worth the money to own one of these.
Korres Lip Butter | This isn’t as big of a color impact in the swatch, but on the lips it is definitely a “your lips but better” color. The perfect tint. And bonus – totally works as a cheek stain in a pinch!
Revlon ColorStay | Glossy, moisturizing, and a super long lasting color! It goes on the lips a bit patchy, but just work it in and it lasts for such a long time.
Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick | It’s the most moisturizing of the drugstore lippies. But it’s also the weakest in color payout. But really easy to just slap on and go!
Revlon Color Burst Balm Stain | Goes on really easy AND it lasts and lasts and lasts.
So after those swatches, I quickly rubbed my arm with a tissue to get the product off. Both Revlon products wouldn’t budge. No big deal, though, right? Wash it and it will disappear! Well, 2 hours later, after solid play time with my toddler, I glanced down and saw swatches! Faint swatches, mind you. But after the other swatches had long disappeared, the Revlon swatches stuck.
Now that’s saying something.
So there you go! Some of my fav lip products that are easy to apply AND in bright, cheery colors for summer!
