I’m pretty solid in my makeup ways, especially when it comes to complexion products. However, one makeup product that I like to switch up, especially with the seasons, is my lipsticks. I don’t even do it consciously or intentionally – it just naturally happens as I’m inundated with trends, vibes, and color palettes on social media. I have this nifty, little, heart-shaped acrylic organizer that I use for my most-used lipsticks of the season. Let’s take the best lipsticks for summer.
Summer lipstick colors
Typically, the best lipsticks for summer are corals, pinks, and reds – or at least some variation of those shades. The deeper shades of fall and winter, such as berries and burgundies, disappear.
1. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fu$$y
If you’ve been around for a bit, then this should come as no surprise to you. This is the perfect pink, cool-toned lipgloss. It smells amazing, is easy to wear, and feels comfortable on the lips!
2. NYX Duochromatic Shimmer Lip Gloss in Booming
Again, this is a lip gloss I’ve been loving. This gloss has such a unique shift to the color – the picture doesn’t do it justice! It looks pink in the tube but applies as a yellowy gold.
I love how it transforms other lip products when used on top.
The consistency is a bit thicker than I like though. Luckily, it packs a punch with a small amount of product, so I always use just a thin layer. This gloss gets its beautifully unique finish from micro-glitter, but it remains smooth and you can’t feel them.
3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Solar Coral
If you were to ask me if there was anything special or unique about this lip gloss, I’d tell you no. But for some reason I can’t stop using it! It’s not incredibly pigmented and the consistency is a bit slippery, which means it doesn’t last well.
But I can’t stop wearing it! I really love the color and the way it adds just a hint of coral to other lip products.
4. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Sunday
I know the Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks aren’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a bulletproof lipstick then look no further!
This lipstick applies opaque and dries down to a budge-proof, fully matte finish. This baby doesn’t come off unless you want it to!

I love the shade Sunday, a rosy, mid-tone. Perfect for summer weddings or other summer get-togethers you get a bit fancier for.
The applicator is also smaller than your average doe foot, so you’re able to get clean, crisp lines upon application.
5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London
This is my perfect nude! Not too cool, not too warm, just perfect.
I’m a huge fan of the SMLC formula – I find them to be opaque, transfer resistant, and comfortable to wear.
This shade in particular is amazing as a base for all the glosses I have mentioned!
