Summer Shades: Best Pink Lipsticks

For a fun, flirty summer look in a hurry, a slick of pink lip colour is the fastest way to look and feel sexy this season. But if you’re usually in your comfort zone with a nude lip, or lean on red to spice things up, it can be a hard shade to pull off. Allow me to introduce you to my favourite summer pink hues…

Summer is such a great time to get experimental with your makeup, whether it’s for a beach break, a garden party or a festival. But with the temperature rising, a heavy eye makeup is not very appealing, so add some instant glamour to your look with a pink lipstick, instead. If pink isn’t your go-to for lips, it can be a tricky shade to navigate, so I thought I’d pick out a few of my favourites to get you started.


Best Pink Lipsticks for Summer

Chanel Rouge Coco in Ina

For a gorgeous summer lip colour with a hint of shine and long-lasting colour, try Chanel’s Rouge Coco in vibrant fuchsia hue Ina. The moisturising lip colour is great for topping up on the go so it’s a great one to pop in your pocket for festival season.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in English Rose

If you want a soft, girly lip colour that will last all day opt for Max Factor’s Colour Elixir Lipstick in English Rose. You can watch my behind-the-scenes video applying this shade to Cameron Russell on my Instagram.

Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lip Colour in Rapturous

Summer calls for high-impact, high-shine colour, which doesn’t come better than Tom Ford’s ultra-shine lip colours. I love this punchy Rapturous hot pink, perfect for evening cocktails somewhere sunny.

Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Matte Lip Color in Dolly

If you usually wear a nude lip but you want to dip your toe in the pink lip trend, try the blurred line between with this liquid matte lip from Kevyn Aucoin in Dolly, which lasts really well, making it a great choice for wedding season.

La Bouche Rouge in Dewy Pink

Check out Parisian sustainable lipstick brand La Bouche Rouge who have a gorgeous selection of pinks. They show the colours on a range of skin tones online to help you pick your perfect shade. I love Dewy Pink for a fresh summer look.

TOP TIP: For a long-lasting look, make sure you invest in a lip liner to match your lipstick hue and fully prep the skin before application. Read my guide to perfect lipstick application here.
