A taste of summer: my lipstick picks

When in doubt just blog! 

It has been a very weird week for me. There’s a lot of unresolved issues in my life right now. So my motto is when in doubt just blog!

Summer here in Australia is just around the corner. To be precise it’s two days away. By the way, this year has gone by so fast I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing.

When I think of summer I think of sunsets on the beach, bright dresses and the perfect shade of lipstick.

I’ve discovered four lipstick shades that’ll be perfect for the season. They’re all a combination of nude/pink that can go with any outfit.


  1. The Balm Girls lipstick (shade: Mai Billsbepaid) 

This has literally been sitting in my makeup shelf for so long. But it’s the best thing I’ve rediscovered. I’m so in love with it right now.

It has the perfect nude/pink tone. The pink is a bit more prominent than the nude. It’ll go well with any outfit if you want a natural makeup look.

It has a dewy finish and it doesn’t dry matte.

2. Chi Chi Viva La Diva lipstick (shade: Free Spirit)

With a tint of orange this lipstick is definition of a free spirit. The orange tone definitely is overpowering.

What I love about it is that it’s bright enough for the colour to stand out but not so bright to blind someone.

The lipstick does dry with a matte finish.

3. Too Faced Melted Lipstick (shade: Sugar)

This shade reminds me of Barbie so much! It’s so girly and it’s so summery.

It’ll be perfect for a night out in town, an all white party or even every day use. The light pink shade isn’t too bright either which is wearable for work.

The Melted range by Too Faced has been my all time favourite line for so long.

It’s drys on matte, it’s super long lasting and is also moisturising.

4. Models Prefer Nude Velvet Lip Colour (shade: Undressed)

One of my most recent purchases. I bought this during the Priceline 50% off sale. When I swatched it I thought ‘it’s so different and it’ll go with so many of my floral dresses.’

The colour is very similar to the Chi Chi lipstick – a tint of orange. Although, this lipstick is a bit brighter. The orange and pink stands out a lot more compared to the Chi Chi.

If I’m looking for a pop of colour on my lips this is something I would wear.

I hope you guys enjoyed my summer lip picks. Let me know what yours are? Or what you like wearing during the hot season x
