Over the last couple of weeks i’ve really turned a leaf in my lip wardrobe by reaching for something other than my usual everyday Rimmel 01 and 28. It’s been quite a new chapter, so I wanted to share with you my 3 most ‘go to’ lip shades this summer, so far!
The newest edition to my ever-growing lipstick collection is this beautiful phone box red by Elizabeth Arden, gifted to me by my Mum. It’s much brighter than the other red shades I have and rivals the stay power of ‘Ruby-Woo’ by MAC. I’ve worn this to work the past couple of days and it lasted the best part of 5 hours before I needed to re-apply and I had quite a few compliments on it too!
I’ve never been a ‘pink’ person, I much prefer red! I bought this shade earlier in the year to try and learn to love pink seeing as it’s been so popular in the beauty scene this year, it’s definitely worked. This shade is bright but not too bright, it’s perfect when you want to inject a bit of summer colour into your look when it’s pouring rain outside like it has been the past few days here in England.
I picked this up last summer if I remember rightly, it’s a great pinky nude with small specks of glitter. It’s definitely a ‘i’m wearing lipstick’ nude, it’s got quite a wet look sheen to it but I love the idea of a jazzy nude. Your lips at a disco nude, how fun does that sound!
What lip shades have you been loving so far this summer? I reckon come payday i’ll be heading over to my local Elizabeth Arden counter and checking out some of the other shades on offer there! I’ve definitely found a new love!
