Summer Lips Edit

Choosing your summer lip colour is never easy with there being so much choice. My go-to hydrating summer lipsticks are always something effortless to apply, low maintenance and adds a wash of colour to the lips. They also pair well with a fresh cream blush to emulate that healthy glow. From pretty pinks to my everyday nudes, this is my summer lips Alex Edit. I’ve also listed my favourite shade from each pick for reference.

Perricone No Makeup Lipstick in Original Pink*

The perfect summer lipstick. It’s hard to talk about a universally flattering pink but this is a versatile, sheer and beautiful fresh pink that works across skin tones and different complexions. It has SPF, a nourishing, plumping texture and a lovely glow. Perfect for summer from the city to the beach.

Chantecaille Lip Tint*

I’m always drawn to hydrating formulations to quench dry lips whilst adding a burst of colour. The Chantecaille Lip Tints are hydrating balms infused with conditioning rose oil and offer a glossy finish to the lips. My shade of choice is the subtle pink of Beach Rose. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick*

A transformative lipstick that applies as a hydrating balm and sets on the lips as an oil. A shiny finish that feels comfortable, non-sticky and has incredible colour pay off. I love the new shade Easy – a subtle neutral tone.

Dior Addict Lip Glow*

Lip Glow is a classic that adds a flush of colour to the lips awakening your complexion as a whole. A universal, moisturising balm that reacts differently on everyone’s lips to create a unique pink shade suited to your skin tone and complexion. A handbag staple all year around, not just for summer, that also doubles as a great lip primer. I always reach for the shade Rosewood.

Clinique Moisture Surge Pop Triple Lip Balm*

Another hydrating balm that adds a hint of colour – are you sensing the trend here? This Clinique pick is packed with shea butter, vitamin E and humectants to really deliver nourished lips. It’s subtle shimmery finish makes for a great summer choice. I love the peachy fresh finish of the shade Grapefruit but they’ve got 5 others to choose from.
