These are the hottest lipsticks of the summer and we love that they range from subtle nudes to the bold oranges, with some classic shades in between. As we all know, even if we have a favorite go-to lipstick that takes us from season-to-season, we often grab a new color as our wardrobes change with the warmer weather and these eight lipsticks are a good place to start for summer.
When it comes to trends, nudes have definitely caught the attention of women — online searches for “nude lipstick” are up 50 percent in summer compared to spring. Moms who wear nude lipsticks share that they wear it because it gives them a natural look, without having bare lips. “I’m a bright lipstick fanatic,” says Angie. “But, I don’t always want to put on a bright shade, especially when I’m not wearing much makeup otherwise. Nude lipstick is the best for those days!”
What moms are wearing on their lips
We chatted with some of our favorite moms on National Lipstick Day to see what they’re wearing on their lips for summer.
Paige: “My current favorite is one that I got for my birthday, MAC Lipstick in Snob (Amazon.com, $16). It stays on, feels good and isn’t lumpy. At first, it looks a little Pepto-pink, but when I blend it with my brush, it softens.”
Chelsea: “I have a secret weapon. The Wet n’ Wild lipsticks in the black tubes (Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Lip Color) are completely comparable to almost all MAC colors. It’s all I use.”
Ashley: “Do lip stains count? I go with Yves Saint Laurent #14 (Amazon.com, $41) hands down. They stay on for a good 3-6 hours!”
Sara: “My new favorite is NARS Sheer Lipstick in Dolce Vita (Amazon, $26). I can put it on in the morning and immediately feel put together for the day. It’s creamy, moisturizing and the name is perfect.”
