Lip Service

Pin It

The formidable Coco Chanel herself once said, “The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” That could not be truer for lipstick. It comes in such a variety of shades and glosses that the possibilities seem endless but everyone’s palette is a little bit different. I find in the summer the lip colors that look best on me change ever so slightly with just a little tan and sun kissed hair. Here are seven shades of lip color I’ve got in my arsenal right now:


1. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

For that barely there nude lip that gives your pout just a little peach sheen and liveliness.

2. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

You can’t really talk summer lip color without a perfect shade of coral in the mix and this is it.

3. Tarte Lipsurgence Matte Lip Tint

Consider this chapstick on fleek. These matte sticks fill in fine lines on your lips for fullness but don’t get chalky like some lip pencils. A clear gloss over the top gives a nice day to night look.

4. Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss

I love Buxom glosses because of their instant boost in volume and hydration. The baby pink is perfectly paired with your summer pastels.

5. Givenchy Le Rouge

In the winter, my go to is red, but in the summer, it’s this bright, rich pink. The perfect flirtatious lip to pair with rosé and those endless nights out with friends.

6. Dior Addict Lip Glow

That just right “I woke up like this” balm. A hint of shine and moisture and SPF because lips are skin, too.

7. Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss

I don’t bail on red completely but I give up the matte for the gloss. The shine catches the sun just right and feels more youthful and carefree.
