5 Amazing Lipstick Colors for Summer

Hey lovelies! Today I wanted to share my most reached for lipsticks for summer. I have somehow accumulated an extensive lipstick collection over the past few years. When I was in university I literally only had one lipstick and I wore it every day. My, how things have changed!

Today I’m bringing 5 Amazing Lipstick Colors for Summer to your attention. Let me know if you’ve tried any of those lipsticks and what your go-to summer lipstick shades are!

5 Amazing Summer Lipstick Colors

In this post we have three bullet lipsticks, one liquid lipstick and one lip gloss. I love all 5 of these shades dearly and I hope that you will too! Remember to share on social media x

Sephora Collection Lipstories Lipsticks in Brunch Date

#1 Sephora Collection Lipstories Lipstick in Brunch Date

The first lipstick I’m sharing is rather affordable for something from Sephora, and that’s because it’s a lipstick from Sephora’s own makeup line. The Lipstories lipsticks launched last Summer if I remember correctly and retail for only $8USD. Since then other brands have been copying the idea of unique individual packaging for each lipstick bullet (think the Almay Lip Vibes lipsticks).

In my 2018 Spring Sephora VIB Haul I picked up the Sephora Lipstories Lipstick in Brunch Date and it’s become one of my favourite lipstick colors for Summer! Brunch Date is a matte salmony pink and it is THE perfect shade to wear to brunch. Move over ColourPop Zoella Brunch Date collection!

Lancome Color Design Lipstick in Love It

#2. Lancome Color Design Lipstick in Love It

This pink shade is so beautiful! It’s a gorgeous Pale Rose which borders on being a nude lipstick. The formula is really comfortable & creamy on the lips and doesn’t cake into lip lines. This is a perfect shade to keep in my purse for when I’m out and want a little pop of color.

I’m pretty sure that this lipstick is a deluxe sample, my mother in law gave it to me and the packaging is a little different from the Color Design lipsticks online. Packaging isn’t everything, the shade & formula are fantastic!

This is the most expensive lipstick on my list at $25USD, so if budget is an issue you absolutely don’t need it. I have other more affordable options on this list!

ColourPop Flower SZN Lux Lipstick

ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick in Flower SZN

#3. ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick in Flower SZN

The Flower SZN Lux Lipstick is supposed to be a creme finish but it’s one of the most matte looking creme lipsticks that I own. Even more matte than their actual matte Lux Lipsticks. It’s not what I expected but I absolutely love the way Flower SZN looks on my lips. It’s a gorgeous hot coral bullet lipstick that not only feels comfortable on the lips but wears for hours and hours without much fading or feathering.

I featured this lipstick in some of my looks for my ColourPop Sweet Talk palette Review and it’s possibly my favourite lipstick color in 2019. The best part? It retails for $7.50.

The Balm Meet Matte Hughes Lipstick in Honesty

#4. The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Matte Liquid Lipstick in Honesty

The Balm finally came to Shoppers drug mart Canada and I was ecstatic! The best part was that I think they priced this lipstick wrong for the Canadian market and I got it for $9.99. In the US it retails for $17 so I’m pretty sure that it was supposed to be $19.99CAD. What a find!

Even though I have a large lipstick collection I don’t have any shades quite like Honesty. It’s a bright coral pink but it’s softer than Flower SZN. Even though it looks more red in the photo above I can assure you that it’s more pink toned! My mother in law instantly noticed that it was a new color on my lips and I generally don’t get too many comments from family about my lipstick (aside from my Dad who hates all makeup and takes every chance to tell me so).

Honesty is such a fun Summer lipstick shade and pairs well with a pink eyeshadow look. I especially love wearing it with my ColourPop She Palette and Sweet Talk Palettes.

Becca Glow Gloss | Amazing Lip Colors for Summer

#5. Becca Glow Gloss in Candy Cane

Okay so this product isn’t tecnically a lipstick but I though it was worth mentioning since glossy lips are having a moment. Even though this specific shade of lip gloss was only available in a set that sold for Holidays 2018 (you can still buy it at Ulta) I think that the Becca Cosmetics Glow Lip Gloss formula in general should be a staple in your lipstick/lipgloss collection. I have enjoyed wearing all four shades from the set so much this summer, and I have happily dubbed Glow Gloss my Holy Grail of all lip glosses.

Becca Glow Gloss is Comfortable, Non-sticky, and generally long wearing depending on the chosen shade. They have glosses with shimmer and opaque glosses like Candy Cane Pictured above. This red has been on my lips countless times this Summer and you can see it in action in my Sydney Grace Cosmetics Review.

5 Amazing Summer Lipstick Colors

    All of these lipsticks sound amazing, Cleia!! I haven’t tried the Flower SZN from ColourPop’s collection yet, but I want to add it to my mini collection now! Also, the Lancome lippie is such a pretty shade!! Love it! x

    • July 19, 2019 / 7:47 pm

      I love Flower SZN and I think you would too! I also think the price point is fantastic for the lux lipsticks 🙂
      I’m getting so many comments about the Lancome Lippie! I wish it wasn’t the most expensive here because it’s truly a beautiful shade. Thanks for reading! x

    Your dad sounds like such a sweetheart… haha..

    I haven’t worn brunch date in quite a while, but those Sephora lipsticks are so good! I really haven’t worn bullet lipsticks at all in the last year. What is my problem? I’ve been majorly stuck on glosses…

    Unfortunately the balm has not come to any of my local Shopper’s, that I know of at least! I’ve never been SUPER interested in their products, but I have definitely heard some good things. In particular, it sounds like they have a really good liquid eyeliner?

    And you know I love those Becca Glow Glosses. They are very nice, although they aren’t my HG. I think my HG at this point are the Fenty glosses still.. I feel they are a bit more hydrating. I hope they come out with more tinted ones next!

    • July 18, 2019 / 2:58 pm

      Haha yeah…

      It’s summer time, who needs lipstick when you can wear lip gloss? I’ve been wearing mostly glosses the past few months, they’re so much less maintenance! Even though I do love my lipstick…

      That’s unfortunate! I wish they would all roll out at the same time, the balm is online at the beauty boutique online 🤔 I’ve only tried itty bitty samples from Ipsy before these lipsticks, good to know about their eyeliner!

      I need to try the Fenty glosses, They’ve been on my wishlist forever! I’m all for hydrating lip glosses 😁

    Oh that Lancôme lipstick is pretty!

    • July 11, 2019 / 1:50 am

      Isn’t it!? Such a pretty pink x

  4. July 9, 2019 / 10:49 pm

    These are all so super gorgeous and stunning!! I love the CP one and theBalm liquid lippies are also some of my fave. I only got to try one which I’ve already emptied but I loved the formula and would definitely love to get my hands on a few more.

    • July 11, 2019 / 1:59 am

      I wish I wasn’t in the middle of a makeup no buy because otherwise I would go back and buy more!
      I’m glad you love them too! 🙂

  5. July 9, 2019 / 6:43 pm

    Awesome choices! I’ve heard the Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lips from The Balm were really good! Unfortunately The Balm isn’t carried by a lot of retailers around me, except Kohl’s I think, so I don’t get much of a chance to shop their products.

    • July 11, 2019 / 2:00 am

      I’m enjoying them so far!
      That was my problem for so long, I’ve wanted to try more from them but they just weren’t sold anywhere. I often see their lipsticks at Marshalls so you could try there?

      • July 11, 2019 / 11:12 am

        Yes, that’s true, but I’m always a bit skeptical about the beauty in Marshall’s/TJ Maxx. Not sure how long it’s been sitting around, and in the store nearest to me it looks quite obvious that boxes have been opened and swatched! Kinda gross 😒.

        • July 11, 2019 / 2:45 pm

          Oh yeah, I never buy anything unless the seal is fully intact!

          • July 11, 2019 / 10:39 pm


  6. July 9, 2019 / 2:51 pm

    I’ve been eyeing brunch date for a while! Every time I swatched it in store, I fell in love, but always talked myself out of it! I think this might be the next lipstick I end up getting. Great post! xxx

      It really is a great shade! Neutral but still with a bit of pink/coral/I can’t describe shades haha
      And for $10 it’s hard to go wrong! I think it’s a bit less in the US. Thanks for reading!

  7. July 9, 2019 / 9:02 am

    Great choices! I love that a lot of them are that orange-red shade – it’s not a shade I actually own, even though I feel like it would be flattering on my skin tone! The Lancôme lippie is stunning – love that glossy pink!

    • July 11, 2019 / 2:08 am

      I love that shade for this time of year! I’ll probably move towards mauves in the Fall but for now I’m embracing it lol
      The lancome lipstick is definitely more expensive but I’m glad I have it! I don’t often think to buy shades like it. Thanks for reading!

  10. July 8, 2019 / 9:03 am

    These are all so beautiful!! I want them all!! 😍
