Favourite Summer Lipsticks

The last few days in Ireland have been sunny . I am slightly biest but Ireland has to be one of the nicest places especially when its sunny . The weather made me want to write about something summer inspired . The first thing I think of when I think of summery make up is brighter lip colours .

Here is a few of my favourite colours from my collection with some pictures of them swatched on my lips . Mac Vegas Volt lipstick would also be here if I hadn't lost it on a night out .

 A really bright pink lipstick , nice creamy formula . Can make your teeth look slightly more yellow though which is the only downside .

French brand, a purple lipstick with a  
gold sparkle through it . Very grunge and unique .
  A matte peachy pink lipstick . Quite natural but still a nice colour for summer . I would definitely apply lip balm underneath this lipstick because the Wet'n'Wild matte lipsticks are quite drying.  In person this lipstick has a very matte finish.
A natural plum colour ( if that makes sense ) its not an in your face plum colour . Its quite sheer and moisturizing . Definitely an all year round lipstick .
Another unique colour , a sort of a two tones lipstick with a nice balance between pink and purple . Glossy finish .

As you can see most of my favourite lipsticks have a glossy finish just because my lips get really dry when I wear matte . To get a matte finish on any lipstick apply a thin piece of tissue to your mouth and powder over it with some translucent powder .
Comment below if you have any questions or blog posts you would like to see .
So there is some of my favourite lipstick colours.What's your favourite lipstick colour for summer ?

(Oh and the reason some of my lipsticks don't look very photogenic is because when doing make up I take a bit off the lipstick and apply it to my palette with a spatula .)
