Current Top 5 Summer Lipsticks ♥♥

Hey there; I know Fall/Autumn is just around the corner but I want to fully take advantage of the last bits of summer before its sadly gone. I want to share with you my Current Top 5 Summer Lipsticks; please bear in mind these pictures were taken before Paris so I didn't have the MAC Flat Out Fabulous (as seen here) which has turned out to be one of my new faves.
Now the last time I did a blog post like this, it was really well received so here goes; don't forget to share it everywhere!

NYX lipstick in Tea Rose; this is a matte dusty rose pink; I usually line my lips with a brown lip liner before applying this so it's not too pale looking. This lipstick has a matte and creamy consistency and lasts the whole day. I love to wear it when I want to go for an everyday look (as seen here) and sometimes I add a gloss to give it a glam look like here. NYX is now available in NEXT stores across the UK if you didn't know and it's quite affordable; I like the fact you can go into store and swatch the products. I wanted to get a few things from them at IMAT but the line was super duper long and I didn't have time to wait as I had to catch my train so am now stalking Next for when they do their 3for2 offers.
They also have a website!!

Sleek Makeup lipstick in Mystic (also seen here); I have had this lipstick for over 2 years and every summer I whip it out and fall in love with it all over again. It is a fuchsia pinkish colour and it looks darker in the lipstick shot but the shots of me wearing them are pretty much spot on. It has a matte and creamy consistency once again and lasts throughout the day. It is also very opaque and has a great colour pay off. This is such a hot summer lippie or sometimes in the winter if you just feeling 'bad' (go on witcho' bad self girl). I usually wear this lippie without a lipliner cos I find I don't need to but you could use a purple liner if you wanted to.

MAC lipstick in Vegas Volt; this is a lovely coral lipstick that looks amazing on all skin tones; if you happen to pass by a MAC go on in and swatch this; am sure you will love it. On me it gives me a slight pinky-coraly tinge but on lighter skin tones it looks like a bright colour. It has an amplified creme finish so it tends to looks glossy so it can be worn as an everyday colour. I do wear a brown lip liner with it; my go to brown lip liner is MAC cork but I also want to pick up a few from NYX cos they are a lot more cheaper.

MAC lipstick in Girl About Town; it's an amplified creme lipstick so it comes off very glossy. I am absolutely in love with this colour especially for spring/summer times. This is actually my second one because I lost my first one :( this lipstick however does not last as long because of the finish but I don't cos I can quickly just reapply and be on my way. This lipstick is a bright blue fucshia so all skin tones can rock it (go get yours girl). I use this lipstick without a lip liner nut if need be MAC magenta will be a good one to use. I have worn this lipstick several times in the past as I cannot get enough. I don't know why but this particular look makes me feel like I am channeling Nicole G.

MAC lipstick in Heroine; now this lippie has taken over the world; everyone and their mama's cat have been talking about it so of course I have to give it a go and it's a deep purple; it looks different on different skin tones but I have seen it look amazing on brown girls and deeper skin toned girls however still have a swatch and you might fall in love with it. It has a matte finish so it stays on for the longest time; I must say it has fast become one of my faves and I do feel 'bad ass' when I wear it. I have worn it here and here.

Thanks for reading; hope you enjoyed this. What are your staple summer lipsticks?
Are you excited for fall makeup? (I sure am)
