TOP 5 [RED] SUMMER LIPSTICKS YOU NEED TO TRY THIS SUMMER!

Happy Weekend, everyone! Summer is finally here and I am so excited to share a variety of different fresh, glowy and experimental looks on here The Belper. However, with this heat wave… I’ve found myself channelling my inner minimalist makeup artist and I’m currently loving it at the moment!

The simple, fresh face and a red lip look have been a new obsession of mine. I feel like it’s the perfect Summer look as I rarely have time to do a full face let alone a full eye-look etc. So keeping a red lip in my makeup bag has given me such a nice balance between glam and little effort makeup.

I like to think of the French and Italian influences in beauty when it comes to these sorts of looks. Very polished, yet free and authentic, all thanks to a red lipstick (well, excluding foundation, powder, concealer- you get what I mean?).

So in this post, I’ve researched and put together five different lipsticks, that could compliment you this summer or just remind you of what you have in the back of your makeup drawer.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Red Carpet, Number 357 – Cannes Edition (Amazon Exclusive) 

COLOUR – A bold red with a slight blue undertone

PIGMENT – Full

TEXTURE – Creamy

FINISH – Slight Shine

VIBE – Red Carpet, Glam

PRICE: £8.99

Okay, so L’Oreal Paris is pretty iconic for their Colour Riche collections and do pretty well with their reds. But what makes this one slightly more special is that in this mini collection, (that also carries a nude) the lipstick itself has ‘Cannes’ hot stamped on it. It’s just gorgeous ^-^. This lip colour is also suitable for all skin tones.

Super Lustrous Lipstick by Revlon 720 Fire and Ice

COLOUR – A bold red with a slight orange undertone

PIGMENT – Medium-Full, Buildable

TEXTURE – Creamy

FINISH – Slight Shine

VIBE – Glamorous, Bold Summer Red

PRICE: £4.94

This lipstick is definitely a classic that has been around for quite some time now and it’s with reason because this beautiful red has a slight orange-pinky undertone, meaning its very vibrant. I would suggest this shade for anyone whos loving the gradient lip look, or just wants the perfect red tint for their cheeks, nose etc. Perfect for anyone who wants a classic, bold lip without the need to splurge. Revlon also carry great nude lipsticks! A cult fave for women of colour is Revlon’s lipstick in “Mink.”

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick, 03 Hot Pepper

COLOUR – A true red with a slight orange undertone

PIGMENT – Full, Intense

TEXTURE – Soft, Velvety

FINISH – Matte

VIBE – Elegant, Pop of Colour, Bold Summer Red

(Current) PRICE: £6.12

Ever since Bourjois came out with these, I have been nothing but in love with the formula. These lipsticks do not function like your normal liquid-to-dry liquid lipsticks. they actually stay creamy and, well, velvety. I would not recommend this to anyone who wants a lot of staying power or rather, no transfer, due to the texture of these. But my, are they one of the most comfortable liquid-lipsticks I’ve ever worn! (in my opinion).

Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Divine Lips in “Helene”

COLOUR – A true red with a blue undertone

PIGMENT – Full, Intense

TEXTURE – Creamy

FINISH – Luscious

VIBE – Old Hollywood Glam, Luxurious Red

PRICE: £18.00

Now, this lipstick is probably the epitome of a Hollywood glam lipstick, given it was created by one of the iconic moguls herself, Joan Collins. Pretty much, this suggestion is for all of my old-Hollywood-glam-loving readers out there (including me, hehe). It is a classic red. Pretty much the shade that will never go out of style.

COLOUR – A true red with a pink undertone

PIGMENT – Full, Intense

TEXTURE – Liquid-to-matte

FINISH – Matte

VIBE – Classic Red

PRICE: £18.00

Do I even need to explain how much I love this product? I don’t think I’ll ever not get over how amazing this really is. Yes, it is a liquid lipstick, but a very comfortable one. I always like to use a lip pencil on the centre of my lips to balance the finish if it ever feels too drying. Nonetheless, this is a great true red suitable for all skin tones! 

(Makeup details on this look will be featured in my next post)

I’m currently loving this fresh new wave of creativeness taking over the classic looks we’ve witnessed over decades and with red lipstick, it is no different. I’d recommend any lipstick lover to use this time to experiment with not only different shades of lipstick but, different textures! From gloss to frost, powder-to-liquid, liquid-to-matte, balm-to-gloss etc. Discover your perfect Summer lip! lol

I hope this post, helped in some way or at least gave you a little inspo for your usage of wearing red lipstick this summer. Enjoy rocking your Summer reds, everyone!

Thank you all so much for stopping by The Belper!

Lots of love,
