Now it is no secret that I love a good lipstick. If you have seen my collection (I am currently trying to work my way through it on Instagram @LindaLibraLoca), you’ll know that I have just about every color you could think of.
Reds will always be my favorites, but you’ll find a fair share of nudes and MLBB shades in my drawers as well that I reach for on work days.
In the summer though, when even I get a little bit tanned, I tend to go for more vibrant shades on my lips.
Lipstick paired with a pair of sunglasses to hide your tired
eyes makes you look pulled together even after two sleepless nights due to a teething baby. Obviously this works all through the year, but as I am no member of the Kardashian family, so I tend to shy away from sunglasses in the winter gloom.
And here are my top three for this summer!
L´Oréal Paris Glam Matte Intense Matte Gloss in 511 “Skinny Tangerine”.
I love me some orangey-red during the warmer months, so this was pulled out a lot, even though it is a tad hard to work with. And by no means matte, as you can see in the picture.
L´Oréal Paris Color Riche L´Extraordinaire in 102 “Rose Finale”
A rosy pink which matches one of my favourite floral tops. Need I say more?
MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass in “Persistent Peach”
A peachy pink I tend to pair with a smoky eye. Despite being a lipglass it is pretty opaque, a bonus as others don’t really show up on my lips.
Another bonus is the typical MAC scent/taste. I don’t know about you, but I am helpless once something smells like vanilla, I get all the cozy, warm and happy feelings. Victim of marketing and early conditioning, I guess!
There you go, one of each color family. What are your top picks for the summer? Do share! Not that I need more lipstick, obviously. But you’ll never know, I might find a gem to see me through the upcoming season.
