Summer Lipstick Shades

Summertime is full of so many special occasions making it the perfect season to spice up your lip wardrobe. True, neutrals are always in, but this is the time to add new shades that no doubt match your vibrant summer plans. Whether you’re going to a wedding or heading to the beach, there are certain lipstick shades that need to be in your beauty arsenal as the temps heat up. From bright coral to vibrant plum, we’ve rounded up our lip picks that are sure to fit into your summer social calendar.

Bright Coral for Vacation

Coral is the ultimate summer lip shade. This pink-tinged orange shade goes by many names, from salmon to sunset to our particular fave — Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Power in Splendid (303). The satin finish of this long-wearing lippie is perfect for splashing around in the water or sitting shoreside with a drink, making it a beauty must-have on a tropical island (or any vacation destination for that matter).

Vibrant Plum for Happy Hour

A plum lipstick is an easy way to add some intrigue to your look for drinks after work. With just one swipe of L'Oréal Paris Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Exuberant, the saturated color will elevate your work attire while feeling light on your lips.

Warm Pink for Weddings

You can never go wrong with a pretty pink for a day of relishing love in the sun. Seeing as summertime is the wedding season we suggest kicking up the ante and going for a pink with warmer tones. IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Solid Serum in Marvelous is sheer, collagen-infused and delivers a soothing, cooling sensation making it a wise choice for a summer wedding.

Fiery Red for Date Night

A red lip exudes passion, but swapping your signature crimson shade for one with an orangey tint will turn up the heat this summer. The Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Makes Moves is intense enough to catch that special someone’s eye and the matte formula is transfer-resistant so it stays put even when your lips don’t.
