Today is #NationalLipstickDay – take a flick through the best lipsticks for summer, from the matte lipstick that lasts all day and will stay with you through breakfast, lunch and dinner, to the formula that cares for your lips and prevents chapping. These are the five lip-loving formulas that every woman needs in her life.
The lipstick that lasts all day
Summer can mean make-up melt-down, we love this lipstick for it’s extreme-wear status and the lip-defining applicator tip. The clever formula lets you you eat, drink and yep, kiss, all day long without it shifting. Choose from 12 gorgeous shades through from barely-there nudes to statement reds.
The lipstick that moisturises
The matte effect of this gorgeous lippy is bang on trend and the formula has hidden benefits, too. Infused with shea butter and vitamin E to condition and care for lips, it prevents flaking and an uneven finish. Slick on one of the eight shades to feel good about what you’re putting on your lips.
The multitasker for cheeks and lips
The ultimate two-in-one lip colour and blush that will help to lighten your handbag. Perfect for on-the-go touch-ups, this super-blendable stick dries to a lightweight soft finish and comes in five shades to choose from. We love a matching pink lip and blush for simple fresh-faced summer beauty.
The lipstick gadget
This lippy has some serious tricks up its sleeve with a built-in spotlight and a mirror on the lid. Perfect to use on a night out when you’re trying to apply lippy in the dark without a mirror on hand. Take it with you to festivals and make getting ready in a tent that much easier.
The lip crayon
Easy to apply and fun to play with, this crayon lipstick is a sleek reminder that colouring in is super-fun! The long-lasting jumbo pencil comes in 14 vibrant colours and is a favourite with make-up artists. The crayon design lets you fill in lips with the tapered tip and layer up for a more intense colour.
