We are closer to the beginning of Autumn than the beginning of Summer, soon all the dramatic Autumn makeups will be out. If you still haven’t tried some of the summer trends than you better do it before it is too late. You can try some of the summer lipstick colours, they are so much fun to wear. 

Changing the lip colour is way easier than trying some extreme makeup trends like glossy eye makeup or maybe blue mascara. You don’t need to leave your comfort zone, unless you go for neon or black. I’ve been wearing pinks a lot this summer, it is one of my favourite summer lipstick colours.

Bright lips are one of the hits of this season, so it is time to go all wild with the lips. If you are into barbiesh pinks then you should check out MAC Chatterbox. It has soft creamy finish, since it is kinda light pink, it would suit best to light to medium skin the best. Chatterbox will brighten up the makeup straight away like the morning sun, just make sure that your lips aren’t dry! Let’s carry on with the pinks… If you like coral pinks, maybe NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Ibiza might be your favourite pink. Even with the minimal makeup, it looks good. Rimmel Apocalips in Apocoliptic is bright pinkish fuchsia, it is perfect for summer. It looks beautiful on every skin tone. You can even combine the fuchsia lipstick with orange, this duo rocks!

If you want to keep things low and want my lips but better than you should check out MAC Brave. It is perfect everyday colour, I can say this colour is one of the timeless colours. As you might already know, as well as glossy eyes, glossy lips are hit too. You can wear it by itself or just wear your favourite lipstick and gloss it up with the glosses. Smashbox Be Legendary lip glosses will give shine and the colour you want.

These are my summer lipstick colours, they are not extreme and also easy to wear. I think I’ve had enough time with the pinks, looking forward to berry/burgundy lips!

What are your favourite summer lipstick colours? Which lipsticks have you been wearing a lot lately? Are you looking forward to dramatic Autumn makeup?

    It’s always so great to switch from one season to another, including making that makeup routine change. Needless to say, it’s fun! 🙂 You listed some gorgeous summer goodies, honey.

    • In spring/summer, I prefer brighter playful colours, I hardly wear red in summer, however in autumn/winter, can’t say no to red!

  • How do you like Rimmel Apocalips? It was the first lip product that I bought when I first arrived Canada (Rimmel is not available in Malaysia) and OMG, I have never experience a lip product that bleeds that badly.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I love the colour and pigmentation of it. When I use highly pigmented liquid lipsticks like this one, I make sure to wear lipliner otherwise it gets messy. It bleeds a lot, especially when it is so hot outside but in colder days it is doing ok.

  • Becky Hughff

    NYX soft matte lip creams are an absolute dream – lovely formula!


  • Some gorgeous picks here! I tend to go for a mixture of corals, nude and bright pinks in summer. I prefer spring/summer lip colours to autumn/winter but I do love Rebel in autumn! xx

    • Bright pinks and corals are my go-to colours in spring&summer, however I am still looking forward to Autumn makeup! x

    • Due to the pigmentation, I would say Rimmel one lasts longer.

    So many gorgeously vibrant shades Ela, I’m totally crushing on all of these and am completely mesmerised by your stunning photography. I love a bold pink lip by Sephora “Call Girl” it’s so bright and tropical 🙂 I’m not so keen on dramatic AW lipsticks as I feel they drain out my skin-tone but I try and match my pink lips to my pink ombre in the hope of getting away with it come winter 😉 I’m deffo off to check out Chatterbox! <3

    Sophie | soinspo xo

    • Aww thank you so much 🙂 Call girl is a beautiful lippie, perfect for pink lovers! I actually like berry/burgundy lips, I think they look so good even with the minimal makeup. Pink ombre and lips sound like a perfect duo 😉 Chatterbox is really bright pink, definitely check it out <3 x

  • Abby Evans

    I’m excited to step outside of my comfort zone with Fall makeup! I haven’t experimented too much with bolder lips in the Fall, so I too am pretty over bright pinks and looking forward to deep plums.

    • I wasn’t a fan of darker lips until a few years ago and now I actually enjoy trying different colours. Once you step outside the comfort zone, everything gets easier 🙂

  • Tessy Onyia

    Fantastic shades. I love them.


  • Great list of lip products – I’ve been loving the nude tones this summer. Although the Nyx one is really tempting!


    • I wasn’t a nude person, however now there are a few nudes that I really enjoy wearing 🙂

  • Beauty Journal

    These are some great picks. I love NYX Soft matte lip cream in Sao Paulo and have been using all this summer. I love berry lips and waiting for Fall when I can flaunt my berry and other dark lip shades 🙂

    Karishma | Your Beauty Journal

    • Sao Paulo is pretty, I couldn’t decide which ones to pick, there are quite a few I want to try out 🙂 I’m really looking forward to Autumn makeup, especially dark lips 🙂

  • Charlotte

    I’ve never really given a look into Smashbox make-up but I am going to now as their lip glosses are really pretty and I’m sure their other make-up is too! Would be great to see a one brand review of them if you could?

    • I want to try Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks however I am not really keen to pay that much on a lippie :/

  • The smashbox colors are so pretty! During the summer I love wearing pinks and corals. My favorite right now is Fresh Lip Sugar in Petal!


  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    Ohh I adore bright lipsticks, but have a hard time pulling them off myself, if that makes sense. I just don’t think bright colours look good on me! I usually stick to the same sort of shades all year round, but I do tend to gravitate towards pinks and nudes during summer months. Burgundy lips are the best, and summer sure ain’t gonna stop me from wearing them! 😀 Thanks for sharing your gorgeous picks, hun. <3


    • I think bright lips would suit you, it is all about getting used to it 🙂 I was thinking the same way about berries&burgundies, however now I am so into these colours 🙂 x

  • love to try smashbox products. and on the side note Margot robbie is so gorgeous!!


  • Raindrops of Sapphire

    I am hugely into bright red and coral for lips!

    Raindrops of Sapphire

  • i really wanted to buy the smashbox matte lipsticks that recently came out, but i tried it on at sephora and it was SO drying on my lips </3 so sad because i was so close to purchasing it


    • I really hate drying formula. I have a few of them which I got just for the colour but I can’t wear them :/

  • SamanthaSeries

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen someone talk about Apocalips! I have the same shade as you and still love it. It has a lovely texture and the colour is so bright and pretty.

    Samantha Series

    • I love the pigmentation of Apocalips, all you need is one swipe! This one is a perfect summer colour!

  • Alita Claudia

    u shoukd try the milain liquid lipstick! its my all time fave! loving the consistency of the product. so much better than nyx lipcream <3

    VVEEKEND 101

    • I haven’t tried any Milani products, I really want to try their blushes!

  • I love your picks, and I think they’re very summery 🙂 I didn’t get into the whole lipstick thing until very late, and now my faves are MAC Brave and Modesty all year round 😀 And Myth, when combined right 🙂 Great post x


    • I only had a few lipsticks a few years ago and now I can’t stop buying them 🙂 x

  • I went through a phase of wearing bold, colorful lipsticks all the time, of course switching up the shades for each season and now for some reason, I only reach for a nude! Perhaps I have to rediscover that phase b/c it can really do so much for the skin, as well as an overall outfit, too! Are there any specific makeup trends for fall that you know of or excited about? I’d love to know! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great weekend!



    • Nudes look beautiful and as you said it looks good with most of the outfits. I am looking forward to dramatic Autumn makeup, it is one of my favourite.
      I hope you’re having a great week, lovely! x

  • I’m like you – looking forward to fall colours! I love burgundy/deep berry shades that come with cooler fall temperatures!

    • Autumn makeup is my favourite makeup trend, nothing could beat berry/burgundy shades!

  • Gorgeous picks 🙂

    Natalie Ann xo | Petal Poppet Blogs ♥

  • Agreed that bright lips are so in right now!! I love it.


  • Fall makeup is coming out QUICKLY! LOL Summer just flew by. I love corals, so I will have to look into that Ibiza lipstick. Very pretty.

    • I am actually looking forward to Autumn makeup, it is my favourite 🙂

  • I love bright pink lipsticks, too but honestly I am ready for fall shades as well! Berries and wine shades- yes, please!

    Agata http://herandmakeup.com

    • I have had enough of spring&summer makeup, I am ready for Autumn shades too!

  • Peach and orange tones all over my face. I rarely wear very bright lipsticks, I usually mix them with a nude lippie so they are a bit muted.
    I’ve never been into lip glosses but those Smashbox ones look really good! 🙂

    • I don’t have many bright lip products, but sometimes for a change it is good to go all bright 🙂

  • The Sunday Mode

    I’m a bit boring and always tend to go for the my lips but better shade so I’ll check out Mac’s Brave for sure.


    • When I want subtle look then mlbt shades are what I reach to!
