I usually wear bright colors in summer, both for outfits and make-up. It’s a sort of a reflex I’ve developed in time: when it’s hot outside subtile colors are not my first choice. I go for bright pink, sparkling orange, coral, you name it. But this season brings a wind of change: burgundy lips, the color of wine and sour cherries. Matte is the new trend (like I’ve seen at Burberry Prorsum, Emporio Armani or Miu Miu) but a sheer-finish is not at all out of fashion either, as Givenchy shows us. Which are my favourites? Here are my top picks. Enjoy!
Clinique Lip Pop Lacquer
Launched in 2016, Lip Pop features a high-shine effect. Its secret? It has a built-in primer that makes it last for up to six hours. I especially love it because I can use it both alone or on top of an another lipstick.
La Petite Robe Noire, Guerlain
You simply can not love it! Even its case looks like a piece of jewelry. And the formula is just fa-bu-lous: three levels of intensity in one lipstick. It’s incredibly easy to use: one layer for a discrete color. Two layers for a more intense effect. Three layers for a strong, vibrating and sophisticated finish.
Pure Color Envy, Estee Lauder
Hydrating lipsticks are a blessing for those like me who always have dry lips. And one of the best I’ve tried so far is Pure Color Envy. It has a bright, fresh color and – most importantly – it has a moisturizing complex with hyaluronic acid that helps capture and seal-in hydration. Say goodbye to dry lips!
