Summer Must Haves: Lip Edition

I think this is the longest I've gone without putting up a post since I started my blog, so apologies. A couple of weeks ago I put up my summer blush must haves, today I bring you the lippy edition. Do I have a ridiculous amount of lip options? Yes, but I need them. God dammit, I NEED THEM OK! Anyway, let's talk about some pretty lipsticks.

MAC Hue- This pinky-nude is perfect for those days where you go a little heavier on the eyes or you like a more minimal look. It has a nice glossy yet pigmented finish, it feels so comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is pretty impressive too, it's definitely buildable. A great one to try if you are just getting into Mac lipsticks.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong- I cannot get enough of this range! I say dont shy away from mattes just because its summer, embrace it. Whack on a bit of highlighter just to keep it all looking sweet. This paticular shade is a bright yet wearable pink tube of gorgeousness. The applicator makes it really easy to apply and oh my, the pigmentation is incredible. It lasts forever and a day!

Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Electric Pink- Although I think that it's slightly falsely named (not exactly electric), I am obsessed with this colour and formula. It is so long lasting. It is a muted yet bright rosy pink. Did that make sense? I was a bit creeped out by the smell the first time I used it, it actually smells like a crayon. I can certainly overlook that tiny con. I really want to try to check out some of the other shades.

MAC Lady Danger- This one is without a doubt my absolute favourite! I have already featured this in a post, twice means it's true love. It's the perfect summery orange toned red. I recommend this to everyone!

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Showy- Another range obsession and I don't think I'm the only one. This shade is a cool toned bright pink with blue undertones. It is incredibly easy to wear, it's especially good for those lazy days where you feel haggered but want to look put together. I wouldn't call it a matte-matte, it's more of a satin-matte. Surprisingly moisturising too.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper- This is basically a more glossy version of Lady Danger. Serious dupe right there y'all.

MAC Speed Dial- I love a good cremesheen. Another blue toned pink, but this time it's a bit more sheer. Perfect for everyday, but also quite buildable. I haven't met anyone that hasn't been impressed by this one, it's a crowd pleaser.
