Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well! Today has been a great day so far, went to work and now i'm sorting out bits and bobs that need to be done and spending the day with my little Bella, which i have a post coming up on soon. Hope you are all enjoying this sunshine and have a fabulous bank holiday weekend!!
Also, the #CosmoBlogAwards launched yesterday and after much deliberation i have decided to enter this year. So if you enjoy reading my blog and would like to nominate me for 'Best New Beauty Blog' I would really appreciate it and will love you forever haha.
So back to the post, this beautiful sunshine combined with taking pictures for my Instagram (@sophiameola) inspired me for todays post, which is on a selection of my favorite lipsticks for Summer 2013. It was really hard to narrow it down to 5 lipsticks for this post as i do have others which i would use during the Summer too and adore, but i love the little selection i've included. I wanted to choose a lipstick from different brands just to make it a little more interesting for you :D
Laura Mercier - 60's Pink
This is a recent purchase of mine after finally giving in and finally purchasing some Laura Mercier goodies, i have a total of 2 lipsticks from Laura Mercier and this particular shade was my first ever one. I have a full review of this little gem on my blog already if you want to take a peek at that then CLICK HERE :) The shade of the lipstick is absolutely stunning, as you can see from the swatch it is a beautiful light rose shade with a slight hint of shimmer. It is a very versatile shade and I think it would be the perfect shade to wear everyday but also on a night out.
Chanel Rouge Coco - Rose Comete
I'm surprised i haven't done a full review of this lipstick yet as it is one of rave about all the time. Compared to the shade in the tube the lipstick transforms on your lips into a beautiful a light baby pink shade with just the right amount of shimmer. It has a super creamy and smooth formula so even with one swipe of this lipstick and your good to go for a quick flush of colour. Yet again this is a versatile shade which would look amazing with an array of different makeup looks. It's one of my all time favorite so i thought it was only appropriate i included it in this post haha :)
YSL Rouge Volupte - #30 Fabourgh Peach
This lipstick looks absolutely amazing with or without a tan so i thought it would be a perfect shade to include in this post. I picked this up last year on my way back from Barcelona in Duty Free and it has become a favorite coral / peach shade of mine. The formula is super creamy and luxurious and i love how it looks and lasts throughout the day. The only thing about this lipstick is i think it is a discontinued or Limited Edition shade which you cannot purchase anymore, however, YSL have a wide selection of lovely lipsticks and i'm sure you could pick up something similar.
Make Up For Ever - N41 Watermelon
I recently did a post on this lipstick if you would like to take a peek at the review you can CLICK HERE :) After looking at the swatches it comes out quite similar to YSL Fabourgh Peach, however, it has a slightly brighter orange undertone. This lipstick does come out quite shocking in the tube as it looks quite neon and super bright, however, it is a beautiful coral / peach shade which is very on trend for Summer 2013. The formulation is quite similar to the Revlon Lip Butters, however, the Make Up For Ever lipstick comes up slightly more pigmented when applied.
MAC - Candy Yum Yum
I think this lipstick speaks for itself haha i remember desperately wanting to get this lipstick from the MAC's Quite Cute Collection but it sold out almost instantly! Boo! Then i think it was last year MAC brought it back after much demand and it is now part of the permanent collection, YAY! This is a very bright shocking pink and i have nothing like it in my lipstick collection but it is absolutely stunning. I though Summer, bright colours, sunshine, being daring and thought this lipstick would be a perfect shade to include. The only thing i have to be careful about when using this lipstick is the fact it's a 'Matte' shade and they tend to try out the lips quite quickly, so when i do wear it i will need to make sure my lips are super moisturised.
Hope you all enjoyed this summer inspired post! I'd love to know your thoughts on these lipsticks and what your favorite lipsticks are going to be this Summer!
