Top 5 Long Lasting Lip Colors of Summer

Summer Shades of Bright Long-Wear Lipsticks #SummerLips

It is officially the first day of Summer so I thought I would share with you my top 5 picks of Summer lip colors. They are all long lasting, bright, and perfect for the season of Vacations, Party's, BBQs, Beach days and Sizzling hot date nights.

First up is a splurge on Tom Ford Ultra Rich Lip In Color Aphrodite - This is a nourishing, bright pink color that goes on creamy and leaves a slight sheen. It's nice because it provides a pigment that is between an opaque and sheer color that lasts while not coming off as too intense.  The case is also super elegant white and gold. I'd wear this for date night! Shop it by clicking the product image below.

Next up is Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in color Carina - It is reasonably priced and is a vibrant Coral color that goes on like a gloss and drys matte like a classic lipstick. It really does stay all day without becoming crackly or drying! This is such a fun color to wear with a bright floral bikini to the pool or anywhere on a tropical vacay! Shop it by clicking the product image below.

Next is Chanel Rouge Double Intensíte Ultra Wear Lip Color in Bright Rose - This is a moderately priced long-wear lip that is the perfect neutral color. It's natural with a slight hint of a rosy pink which I like because so many neutral lip colors are lacking that and tend to wash a fair-medium skin complexion out. This doesn't do that at all. It literally lasts all day which is a plus and therefore perfect to wear to a Summer gathering or BBQ during the day. To apply, put on the pigmented end like a lip gloss, then use the other end to apply the clear gloss. It dries more of a matte after about ten minutes. Shop it by clicking the product image below.

Following, is one of my favorite classic red long wear lip shades that is absolutely worth the extra money. Armani Lip Maestro Lip stain in color 400 "The Red" - This product is an Allure Magazine "Best of Beauty" winner for best liquid lipstick, which is no surprise to me. I've got it in multiple colors actually andIt may be my favorite as Again it lasts all day and goes on like a velvet lip gloss while drying matte. Walaa, you've got gorgeous rich lip color perfect for a sultry date night look, or a classic girl next door daytime vibe. Shop it by clicking the product image below.

Last but not least, another Armani product favorite! Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick in color 502 "Mania" is your perfect Summer Bright Pink. I'd wear this to brunch or the beach with the girls, as its feminine and fun. It's deeply concentrated with color so you are sure to make a statement with it. What's unique about it, is you would think it would feel heavy and concentrated on the lips but instead it is weightless and once dry almost feels as if you are wearing nothing. It also like the others is long lasting and gives off a matte finish. Shop it by clicking the product image below.

As you can see, these are all great choices to have on hand for your Summer Festivities. Most are also available on-line and in-store at Nordstrom, which offers free shipping and free returns should you choose to order any from the links I have provided for you. The Stila coral one I ordered (and linked for you) through Amazon, which if you have prime is available for free 2 day shipping. :)

I also can't leave without telling you about my new favorite obsession and getting ready necessity, also featured in this post...My "Smart" make-up mirror! Y'all, its a sleek chrome, double sided LED lit mirror that has Blue tooth capability and built in speakers. You can run it off of batteries or plug into your wall. You now have the option to listen to the radio or play music from your phone while you get ready! I hate when I am getting ready and am not sure how I am running on time and am searching for my phone to find out. Another plus to this mirror (as it seems they have thought of everything)...it has a digital clock. Seriously am wondering how I survived so long without this!
