The Bold Lipsticks That Look Good In The Summer

how to wear bold lipsticks in the summer, loreal julianne red lipstick swatches and review

Whoever said bold lipsticks are only for the autumn/winter time, well they didn't know what they were talking about. I have found 3 bold lipsticks that are perfect for the summer (I know it hasn't been much of a summer here in the UK). I am obsessed with lipsticks, me and lipstick we go way back. I don't know why but lipsticks are just favourite beauty products and I am just gonna stop rambling now otherwise we will be here forever.

I was going through my lipstick collection when it occurred to me that I don't wear nearly enough bold lipsticks especially those on the darker side when summer comes around.  One of the main reasons is that I like to keep everything simple and a dark bold lip requires maintenantence and I just don't have time for that especially when the weather is really hot. So I picked out a couple of colours that are bold but less darker and definitely require less maintenance that you can rock this summer time.

bold lipsticks perfect for the summer Collection Deluxe Lipstick in Prohibition 1:
I love this lipstick, I picked up it around September time and I have been wearing it loads since then. I love the finish, it's sort of glossy but not too much more like a glossy satin finish which is perfect for the summer. I usually prefer bolder lipsticks in a matte finish because you know it last better but in the summer I definitely think a glossier finish is just nicer. This lipstick is easy to apply, it glides nicely on to the lips and it last pretty well actually. For everyday I have been just dabbing it on my lips and I love that just bitten berry finish it leaves so nice for when you just can't be bothered. This colour is very similar to the Kate Moss 107 lipstick, just slightly more on the red side and just a little bit more brighter (which makes it perfect for the summer time). Also it smells amazing, like a sweet toffee I have just been sniffing it while I write this post (weirdly addictive).

L'oreal Colour Riche Collection Privee Red Lipstick Julianne: 
I love the L'oreal colour riche lipsticks, definitely one of my favourite from the drugstore amazing quality. I love the red lipstick collection, all the colours are amazing. I never thought the Julianne red would suit me, well because our skin tones are just so different but I aways swatched it whenever I went to the L'oreal counter. Then one day, I was like what the hell just go for it and I am so glad. It's such a beautiful colour, omg if you are scared because you don't have a similar skin tone to Julianne (she is on the paler side of the spectrum) just go for it because it looks so good on. It's a beautiful raspberry pinky red, and usually I don't go for pinks but this colour is so pretty. I am definitely going to be wearing it loads this summer, it's going to look so pretty in the sun. This lipstick has a more of matte finish but it's nothing crazy and it actually feels nice on the lips. I feel like I should pick another just case, you never know what will disappear next from the shelves.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Pink Punch:
This lipstick has the same sweet toffee scent that the Collection lipstick does, a lipstick is so much better when it smells nicer. I really like the Colour Sensational lipsticks by Maybelline, they last so well even though they aren't a matte lipstick win win especially for the summer time. This colour is so perfect for the summer, it's a bright bold purple based pink (it looks a lot pinker on the photo). I think it will look really pretty with dry dewy minimal makeup and this lipstick, so pretty.

Do you like wearing bold lipsticks in the summer?

  1. I'm with you, bold lips are awesome in Spring/Summer. Who needs to save them for just Fall/Winter!? I really love the looks of the Collection lipstick. We don't have Collection in the US and I've been meaning to look online for a place to order from the brand. I am really interested in their concealer, too. I'll make sure to add Prohibition 1 to my cart ;) ;) Thanks for sharing, and beautiful photography!!

  2. i love bold lips in the spring and summer. i generally do dark in the winter, and bright in the summer -- but that doesn't mean i won't do the opposite. i love MAC relentlessly red for the spring and summer, it's absolutely gorgeous.

  4. I've been looking for the perfect pinky red but most just turn red. I'll see if this collection or the Julianne will suit me.

  5. I really like glossy finishes for the summer as well, and that Collection one is the prettiest shade - I may have to try and hunt it down!
