Top 10 Lipsticks for Summer
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15: This beautiful lip tint from Fresh blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays. In addition to all these healthy ingredients, this lipstick imparts a beautiful tint to your lips, and can be applied to look natural (offering just a hint of color) to dramatic (intense, opaque color when layered on). It’s no wonder this SPF-infused lip treatment is a must-have lipstick for Summer.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl: Satisfy your lip gloss craving with Marc Jacob’s champagne grape-infused lip vinyl. This lightly pigmented, plumping lip gloss is infused with antioxidants, essential oils, and a hint of effervescence for a perfect pout with the highest shine. The patented, pillowed applicator glides on the lip vinyl for precise application with a shimmery, lust-worthy finish. For these reasons and more, it’s definitely deserving of being one of the best lipsticks to sport this season.
CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm: Soften lips with a cushion of color that’s not quite sheer, not quite opaque—but something perfectly in between. This moisturizing balm from CLINIQUE is loaded with mango and shea butters to make dry, delicate lips feel comfortably soft and smooth. With one easy swipe from this jumbo crayon like lipstick, you’ll instantly get brilliant color on your lips.
Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté: Get unbelievable shine without the stickiness that most lip glosses leave. Inspired by a kiss, YSL Gloss Volupté provides up to ten times more shine than a classic gloss. The unique applicator is shaped like a kiss and allows for even application over fuller or finer lips. Mix and match the three top coats to the glosses to achieve different looks and effects from subtle to sultry.
Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick: Befriend your lipstick once again with this triple-duty formula comprising the best of lipstick, gloss, and balm. The clear outer core drenches lips in the shine and hydration of pure argan oil, while the highly pigmented inner core saturates lips in color. The buildable, medium coverage is foolproof—even when you’re applying it mirror-free.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural: Enriched with nourishing properties, Rouge Artist Natural lipstick keeps lips hydrated for eight hours after application. Its incredibly smooth texture glides on effortlessly for ultimate comfort while also leaving the lips supple and moisturized. Formulated with mother-of-pearl and colorful pigments, Rouge Artist Natural’s translucent shine adds a natural sheen to the lips.
DIOR Dior Addict Gloss: Addict Gloss delivers brilliant shine and a volumizing effect in dazzling shades. The smoothing and hydrating formula comes in three finishes: sparkling, pearly, or pure. Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite Lipstick for an instant pop of color and shine.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick: Revolution Lipstick is a rich, buttery lipstick featuring the signature Urban Decay pigment-rich color you crave. Addictive to apply (and even more addictive to wear), Revolution Lipstick glides on without dragging or skipping and hugs every curve. Just one swipe gives you a big, gorgeous lay down of color. And with shades that range from gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there’s something for everyone.
NARS Lipstick: NARS Lipsticks are known to be pure, creamy lipsticks, as they are enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and keep true color intact. Sheer finish creates the most natural, stained-looking lips, while semi-matte produces velvety, full-bodied lips.
Givenchy Le Rouge: Enjoy perfectly defined lips that last as long as you do—and a genuine leather goods item. This lipstick-as-accessory delivers intense colors and a semi-matte finish all in one stroke, and as the first lipstick to come in real leather, it imparts a soft, supple touch and sensual feeling.
