Here's the first of three makeup inspired blog posts I'll be writing over the next few weeks! I thought I'd show you some of my favourite summer makeup bits that I've been loving this season, including lip, eye and face products. First up we have LIPS! My personal fave. 

I've gone a teeny tiny bit lipstick crazy over the last few weeks. I mean, don't get me wrong, I've always loved me a good lippy but I think I've almost purchased my body weight in the stuff recently and the shopping spree really must end. But it probably won't so queue the humongous lipstick collection post I'll be doing around Christmas! 

In all seriousness though, the colour selections out there are just so good at the moment! And what with the affordable makes actually hitting the quality of some of the higher end brands it just makes so much sense to head out there and snap up the bargains. 

So here we go, my top 5 favourite lips products for summer!

Rimmel Apocolips Lip Laquer in Apocaliptic
I stumbled across this lip gloss the other day while on a completely spontaneous lunch time shopping spree. I fell in love with the colour as soon as I saw it too. It's a brilliant lip gloss; long lasting, highly pigmented, just the right texture and really hydrating. The range of colours are just amazing too! Speaking of which I think I might go get a few more tomorrow...

MUA lipstick in Nectar
Man I love this brand! If you haven't tried them, then you're definitely missing out. With products such as single blushers and lipsticks starting from just £1 they are as budget as you can get, but they certainly don't hold back on quality. This lipstick is from their more shear range and it's just such a gorgeous, highly pigmented colour! I literally fell in love with it the minute I put it on. And did I mention it cost £1? Bar-gain!

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Party Pink
Another drug store brand, Sleek has got it so right in so many ways. Great products at a reasonable price and wearable too. This lip gloss was my first ever matte lip product purchase and I was hooked the moment I wore it. It's not too drying for a matte gloss and the colour is really eye catching. Perfect for a vampy look!

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
Ahhh... The Revlon Lip Butters! Aren't they just frickin' amazing?! I'm so glad my friend introduced me to them because I actually cannot get enough. This colour is the perfect orange tone and is great if you fancy an escape from pink. Good with a tan too!

MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss
Another addition from MUA! I love the texture of this gloss, it's so shiny and it actually lasts which is quite unusual for a shear gloss. The colour is perfect for day time and it smells pretty good too!

So that's it for my top 5 summer lip products! If you have a favourite lip product for the warmer months then be sure to comment and let me know!

Lots of Love,
