My Top 5 Summer Lipsticks (on National Lipstick Day!)


Did you know that today is National Lipstick Day? I'm not sure who made that rule but it's a thing (Google it!) and I am going to celebrate by sharing my five current favourite lipsticks with you guys! Coincidentally enough, two of these are from NYX and another two are from Burt's Bees but I promise this is not a sponsored post. I'd love nothing more than for those companies to sponsor me (hah!) but I definitely paid for these myself and I just truly love them.

Top to bottom: Burt's Bees "Fuchsia Flood", Burt's Bees "Hawaiian Smoulder", NYX "Milani", NYX "Antwerp", Fresh "Rosé"

Burt's Bees Lipstick in "Fuchsia Flood" | I've been wanting to try these lipsticks since they were first released but my local Walmart doesn't carry them. I stumbled upon them at a different Walmart a few weeks ago and had to resist buying the entire collection! They are available in 14 shades and formulated with natural ingredients such as bees wax, raspberry seed oil and vitamin E. They provide a gorgeous wash of color and are so comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. "Fuchsia Flood" is a medium cool pink and it's just so pretty. I will definitely be purchasing more of these when I get a chance! They are available at Walmart stores in Canada for $9.99.

Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in "Hawaiian Smoulder" | While browsing the Burt's Bees section, my eyes also fell upon these lip crayons. I am a sucker for lipstick in a crayon form because it's just so easy to apply! These are available in six colors and I chose "Hawaiian Smoulder" which is a bright, coral-pink watermelon shade. I will say that these are described as "matte" which they are not - they definitely have a sheen. However, like the lipstick, they are super moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. Again, I want to buy all of these (they will definitely be going on my stocking list at Christmas!). They are also available at Walmart stores in Canada for $9.99.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Milan" | I recently revisited this product after not wearing it for a while and fell in love all over again. These lip creams have a whipped, mousse-y texture which makes them super easy to apply (I hate how messy some formulas can be!). These dry down matte but they aren't as drying as some other formulas so while they may not last as long before needing reapplication, they are super comfortable. "Milan" is a medium rosy pink which would look great on most people! These are available at Lawtons and Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada for $8.99.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Antwerp" | This is the first lip cream I purchased and I still love it. It's the perfect matte coral for summertime. As I mentioned above, the formula is super comfortable and not nearly as drying as some liquid lipsticks. These are available at Lawtons and Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada for $8.99.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in "Rosé | I received this mini in a Sephora Favourites collection but I will definitely repurchase a full sized version once I finish this one. This is described as a "sheer berry rose" and while the swatch doesn't appear to give a lot of color payoff, it gives my lips a very natural "I just ate a popsicle" look. It's extremely moisturizing and comfortable to wear and is often my go-to lip product when I'm working because I don't need a mirror to apply it. The full-size version of this product is available in 13 colors and retails for $28 at Sephora.

So I apologize for the lack of variety here but apparently I just love pink and coral lip colors in the summer! I am also all about the comfortable, easy-to-wear lip products in the summertime. Have you tried any of these? Do you have any favourite lip products this summer?

  1. I love the NYX soft matte lip creams! I really want to purchase some more and I think I would really like the Milan shade! Also, I really wish our Wal-Mart carried the Burt's Bees lip products! Such a bummer! Great post!
