MUA Lipstick in Juicy
If you're generally a fan of nudes, but you're willing to spice it up a bit for summer, this could be your guy. Juicy is a revolting name, but a lovely peachy pink with a slight 60's retro vibe. Considering it's a mere £1.00 the formula is pretty impressively creamy and pigmented.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Susie
I was watching one of Estee's videos and she held up this lipstick and said “this is such a classic Essiebutton colour.” So I bought it. I'm hardly impressionable. I love that girl's taste. This is another creamy smooth formula. It's not overly pigmented, which is nice for a more casual look.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu
This, on the other hand, is pigmented and then some. I wouldn't say Yu is for the faint-hearted. It's a wonderful bright, cool toned pink that makes me feel chic as all heck. It's a satin finish and not too drying, but it leaves a decent stain behind on the lips.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Dragon Girl
How many times have I professed my love for this colour. I just don't think that there's anything more perfect out there. This is a true matte lipstick, so you might want to give your lips a sexy massage with some balm before application. The colour, oh the colour. A gorgeous, bright, blue toned red, that almost leans toward magenta in some lights. Heavenly.
Maybelline Color Elixir in Hibiscus Haven
These glosses have a lovely texture and a lot of pigment. I like this colour in particular because it's almost a Barbie Pink. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not that kind of gal. I said almost. I think the fact that it's still somewhat sheer (being a gloss) makes the colour come off seeming fresh and summery, rather than tacky.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous
Remember these bad boys? I haven't heard much about these stains in a while, but I still love 'em. They smell minty fresh and they're so easy to apply. They're sheer enough that it doesn't feel like I constantly have to worry about my lipstick smudging, but they're still pigmented enough to have an effect. I like a lot of colours in the range, but it's always fun to have an orange for summer.
