We won’t deny it: We’re downright lipstick junkies. And each new season provides us with a perfect excuse to fuel our addiction with fresh, fabulous additions to our ever-growing lip collection.
But with so many stunning shades and formulas out there, it can be a struggle to pick the perfect hue for you. Which is why we’re bringing you four of our favorite lipstick shades to sport this summer, plus totally on-trend pieces to match. Scroll down to see our picks, then go forth and give ’em some lip!
Wanna go head-to-toe in one of these hues? Tap your fave looks to shop ’em!
A blue-based red with a touch of brown brings to mind lips that are stained with ripe, juicy cherries – so summer, right? Try Colourpop Ultra Satin Lipstick in “Lost” (worn above) or Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in “Passion” for an ultra-moisturizing, SPF-packed pick.
We call this the Kylie Jenner lip, undressed. It’s a soft, pinky-brown nude (your lips but better) with a hint of terracotta. Try Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in “Lolita” (worn above) or Maybelline ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in “Nude Nuance” for a budget-friendly pick.
Cool, vampy shades are typically reserved for the fall and winter months, but this season’s runways and red carpets have been teeming with sultry plum hues. To rock this rule-breaking look, try Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in “Plum Perfect” (worn above) or ColourPop Lippie Stix in “Creature” for a deeper, more dramatic glam.
Nothing accentuates your glowing summer tan like a warm, effervescent orange lippie. When the heat’s got you feeling sluggish, simply apply a slick of this vibrant hue to add a face-brightening pop of color to your look! Try Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in “Zinfandel” (worn above) or ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in “Cozy” for a wallet-friendly buy.
