Favourites | Summer Lipsticks

 

Being the lip product junkie that I am, summer is my favourite season as the plethora of colours that can be worn without feeling uncomfortable and over the top is much more than at any other time of the year! I have purchased a few lip products recently that have slowly made their into my everyday routine and become some of my favourites so I thought I would share them with you in my first ever post on jdrmakeup.co.uk! (How exciting!)


L'oreal Caresse Lipstick - Tempting Lilac (£7.99)

I really prefer these to the Revlon Lip Butters as I just find them so much more moisturising. I especially love this shade as it's such a nice light purpley-pink colour which is quite different to any other drugstore lipstick I have seen in the past. I also like how this goes onto the lips as I find that it doesn't look too full on and that way, it can be worn with any makeup look. 


Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick - Paradis (39) (£24.00)

These Chanel lipsticks are my the little bits of luxury in my life! They apply like an absolute dream, last for a really long time on the lips but aren't drying! This is my more recent Chanel lipstick and the colour is very interesting and again, something I haven't really seen before. It is a very wearable everyday pink colour that has a beautiful blue undertone which makes it very flattering on the lips. I also really like the fact that when these rub off of the lips, they don't go all crumbly and horrible, they just rub off and then you can reapply them again like a dream.


Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick - Orchidee (17) (£24.00)

This was my first Chanel purchase and I 100% do not regret it! This shade is so flattering on the lips and I truly believe that it would look great on any skin tone. Also, you can dab this lipstick on lightly to give a more subtle, stained effect but can also apply it full on to give a darker and brighter effect. I love the fact that this shade just finishes off a face of makeup!


Mac Lipstick - Brave (£13.50)

This is my perfect nude, most of you will know me from youtube and will know that I hate nude lipsticks as they just look awful on me! However, this one is perfect. It is a satin formula which I quite like as it has a nearly matte look about it. I really enjoy wearing this shade as it looks quite professional and looks beautiful on the lips  however it isn't too 'in your face' as some of the summer shades can be like.



Pixi Succulent Lip Twin - Pink Peony (£12.00)

This is an extremely new purchase but has vastly become one of my favourites to use. It is a very different and clever little product, in the top part of the product, it is a non-sticky lipgloss formula in a beautiful bright pink colour the same as the swatch above and in the bottom section, is a round ball of a bright pink pigmented shade, which is extremely moisterising and looks so lovely on the lips after it's been applied! Don't be put off by the round ball applicator as it does apply very nicely and looks gorgeous once it's on. 


Mac Lipstick - Hot Gossip (£13.50)

Another Mac Lipstick, not surprising though as most of us know, whether we have used the amazing products or not, that they really are wonderful little bullets of colour. The shade I have here is 'Hot Gossip' which is a nice everyday pink with a purple tone to it. It looks really nice on the lips but you just have to be careful not to go over the top as I find that the creme sheen formula can look a little over done if they're applied too much.


Sorry that my first post has been quite long but I really am very excited to have my blog up and running now! You will defiantly be seeing much more of me on here which is very exciting! 

What are your favourite lip products for spring?
