I don't know about anyone else, but i definitely have a stash of make up in my collection that is seasonal. I don't like berry toned lipsticks in the summer - nor do i like coral in the winter. I wait for the nicer weather and longer days to start so i can start using some great products again. Lip colours are a great way of making your make up that much more 'summery'. I mean, on a day to day basis my make up routine stays fairly similar except for different foundations and blush colours. So i like to use my lips to make my summer statement.
One of my favourite lip products to use in the summer is the MAC Lipstick in Sunny Seoul (£15.50) which is a gorgeous glossy coral shade. It's a slightly sheer shade which is great for people like me who can be a bit wary of coral but it's such a flattering shade on everyone. It smells so lovely on the lips and doesn't dry them out. Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart (£7.99) is another great lip product for summer. It's really moisturising and surprising opaque too for a lip butter. It's a lovely candy pink shade which looks great as a pop of colour. It's not sticky so fellow UK girls will know, your hair doesn't get stuck in this! Last but not least, is the Bourjois ColorBoost in Peach on the Beach (£7.99) which i grabbed last year after hearing so many people rave about it. It's a lovely light peach/coral colour which is quite sheer and glossy but looks great on. You can easily build the colour up to be more opaque too while keeping your lips hydrated, protected from the sun AND waterproof. Wonder product!
