Favorite Summer Lipsticks (Collab)


I’ve always been a lip gloss kinda girl. Until about 2 years ago, I rarely wore lipsticks. Since then, I’ve amassed quite a collection.  Today I’m collaborating with some of my blogger buddies to share our favorite summer lipsticks/lip colors.

Wet N Wild was one of first brands I fell in love with. Their Mega Last line is great quality, super pigmented, moisturizing, and generally retails for around $2.99. These three have gotten a lot of wear, especially for Spring/Summer.

(Left to Right)
Red Velvet: An vibrant orange based red.
Purty Persimmon: A vibrant orange. I never thought I would ever be a fan of orange lipstick but I’ve fallen in love with this one.
Don’t Blink Pink: This one took a little getting used to because it’s a hot pink. You can’t go unnoticed when wearing this color.




MAC Heroine:  At first, I was skeptical about this one. Everyone raved about it but I wasn’t sure I was a purple lipstick kinda girl. I eased my way into wearing it and it too has grown on me. I plan to wear it a lot this summer.


Old habits die hard. Some days I’m just want to go back to my old lip gloss loving ways. This NYX Butter Gloss in “Eclair” is perfect for giving your lips a pop of color without being too much. It’s very moisturizing and applies easily. My lips are pretty pigmented and I’m able to get great coverage from one application.

Julep “Enchanted” Lip Gloss is another one of my favorites for the days when it’s just too hot to be bothered, but I want some sheer lip color. I received it a few months ago in my Julep Maven box and it has not left my purse. I love the fact that it’s not sticky and it’s moisturizing. I’m wearing it in my “hello” pic on the sidebar 🙂


So, there you have it, all my favorite summer lipsticks/lip colors. Please visit all these beautiful ladies to see what colors they’re loving this summer.

  • I need to get Heroine. I’m like the last girl ON EARTH, MARS AND VENUS to get it. It really does look cute on you too.

    I tried the NYX butter in another color and I loved it. It lasted for a while too!

  • Prettaayyy!!! I love Heroine by Mac! Every time I see it on someone, it looks great…so I’ve got to get it eventually lol. Great post, Vashti 🙂

    • Thanks Ariel. It had to grow on me, but I love it now 🙂


    I love lipsticks ! I’m not a gloss girl but I love the new matte creams everybody has ! I prefer matte lispticks because the color is intense and they stay on longer ! I love all your choices!

    • Hey, thank you so much. I think I’m split better sticks and glosses lol. It depends on the day 🙂

    Hi Vee! I love the look of your website! Awesome! I also love the look of a Hot Bold Red lip color. It’s a color that I choose to wear through out each season of the year. I do wear other colors such as pink, fushia, orange, blush, but Red is definitely my favorite. Have a great day, sis.! Thanks for asking!

    • Hey Jeanie,
      Thank you so much. I love a good red too. It makes a statement on it’s own. Thanks for stopping by sis 🙂

  • C.D. Beatrice Clay

    I need that NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair… sooooo pretty! I am gonna make a beeline to the beauty counter for this. Looks so soft too! I don’t mind paying a little extra for gloss that also moisturizes.

    • Thanks Christa. It’s really nice, and it’s not expensive at all..less that $5. Grab a few 🙂

  • RattlesandHeels

    These lipsticks look gorgeous on you especially Purty Permission. I may have to try that one.

    • Thanks Adanna. I was so skeptical about it at first but it’s one of my faves, as is evidenced by the slant lol.

  • I’ve never been one to wear a lot of lipstick, but I’m starting to get more into it this year. I always feel like I’m doing something wrong, or like I’m missing a step…nonetheless, I’m wearing it almost every day. I really like Wet ‘n Wild too…I haven’t seen those colors you have there, but I will certainly be on the lookout next time. And I’ve always wondered what the NYX glosses looked like. That color especially looks great on you!! I might have to check that out for my non-lipstick days!!

    • I completely feel you Mionna. I used to feel the same way. Just don’t over think it and do what feels and looks good to you. Thank you and thanks for taking the time to comment. Have a great week 🙂
