When a new season rolls around, I get so excited to find new lipsticks and to start wearing my seasonal favorites. I have a few higher end lip products, but for the most part, I prefer to buy from the drugstore because they are so much more affordable (I’d rather spend my money on clothes. Who’s with me?! 😉 ). Below are my picks for the best drugstore lipsticks for spring and summer:
~Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs: Nude Lust~
Being so fair skinned, I have a difficult time finding nude lipstick that doesn’t wash me out. I love that this shade has a gorgeous pinky-brown tint to it while still being nude. It looks so great with a smokey eye!
~NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: Istanbul~
This is my first NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and let me tell you, I am hooked! (Thanks Shanna for the recommendation!) This color is very close to my natural lip color and has been my go-to lately. I have really dry lips and sometimes matte colors can be even more drying on my lips but not this one! The color is going to be so perfect year-round!
~Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom: Power Peony~
I have been on the hunt for a pinky-purple shade for spring and hallelujah I have found it! This color screams spring and summer.
~Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Balm Stain: Cherish~
I have five colors of the Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Balm Stain collection (the color “honey” is my all time favorite), but each spring and summer, I find myself reaching for the color “cherish”. It’s a really pretty light pink color. This is the color I wish my lips were naturally.
~Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids: Shocking Coral~
This color is a family favorite…my mom, my sister, and I all have it 🙂 It’s the perfect spring/summer alternative to all the bold reds you see during fall and winter.
