Summer Lip Wardrobe

summer lipstick wardrobe

For me, a summer lipstick wardrobe should consist of effortless, low maintenance lipsticks and balms that offer nourishing, comfortable wear and a fresh wash of colour. This year, my summer lip wardrobe ranges from everyday tinted lip balms to long-lasting matte lipsticks with a soft, velvety finish.

summer lipsticks for 2021 tinted lip balm glossier ultralip matte lipstick

Pat McGrath LiquiLust

The perfect “going out lip”. Favourite shades of mine include Divine Rose (a beautiful dusky nude pink) and Elson 4 (a stunning evening red). Super pigmented and easy to apply formula straight from the tube. A long-lasting, non-drying liquid lipstick with a velvety matte finish. Watch them in action in this Instagram Reel.

Glossier UltraLip*

This new Glossier launch is a go-to spring/summer lip staple. Available in 9 shades of glossy, balmy goodness, they’re super comfortable, pigmented and infused with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid. You can see each shade in action in this Instagram Reel. There really is something for everyone from punchy, bright shades to deep brown nudes.

NARS Afterglow Lip Balm*

If you’ve browsed my previous spring and summer lip edits you’ll know how much I love a hydrating balm. NARS Afterglow is super nourishing and comfortable to wear. It offers sheer natural colour and a little shine that’s perfect as a lipstick base or to add shine over your favourite matte lipstick. I’m also loving the limited edition Soft Matte Tinted Lip Balms which offer more colour pay-off and a clever balance of lip hydration whilst appearing as a fresh matte.

Charlotte Tilbury Tinted Love*

A 2in1 fresh flush of colour for both lips and cheeks. A liquid tint with a dewy, satin finish. Available in 6 shades all infused with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E. Shade Blushed Rose is one of my favorites for a pretty everyday pink. 

Code8 AM/PM Tinted LipBalm*

Love a good lip balm crayon and these Vitamin A and E infused sticks have become a makeup bag staple. Perfect for everyday wear, they deliver a nourished, plump and soft lip with a fresh shine finish.
