Top 9 Summer Lipstick Shades.

 The scorching sun decided to show its face, continuously...must mean it's summertime! Since my lipstick craze, I've been attracted to smooth or creme-like lipstick finishes. It is only when I'm feeling bold, or myself rather, when I grab for a matte shade.

I decided to do a Top 9, although I know that's an old number, but that's what I chose to do! The great thing about my picks are they are all affordable! They are either from the local drugstore or a BSS. Below are the lipstick swatches on my arm.

 I'm going to go in the order of the swatches of my arm for the swatches on my lips. I will include the specs of the lipstick.

1. Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Berry Haute 066. Dupe for MAC's Up The Amp. Retails ~$5 Walmart
2. Revlon Lipstick Creme Pink In The Afternoon 415. Looks great with a chestnut lip liner. $8 CVS
3. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor Pink Me Up 045. Creamy sheen. Dupe for Bobbi Brown's Tulle. ~$7 Target
4. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Mauve Mania 450. Dupe for MAC's Plumful. Pretty when paired with a plum lip liner ~$7 Target
5. Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Rosebud 904B. Pretty pink but matte so moisturize lips before wear. $2

7. Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Hip 14. Creme application. Very bold pink. Dupe for MAC's Candy Yum Yum. ~$6 Target

    1. That's what I thought at first, but you should try a lippie. Start off with a nude-ish pink, then go BOLD! :)

  3. So pretty, I have a preference for the purple-ish ones!!
