End Of Summer Lipstick Shades (ft. MAC & Rimmel)

As the weather is slowly turning worse (boo!) I feel like I'm scrabbling to keep hold of the ends of summer. This means wearing sandals in the rain, refusing to take jackets out even when the forecast is rain, and putting on obscenely bright summer lipstick. As much as I'm very much a red lipstick girl which always works best in winter, there are a few shades that I have in my collection that just remind me of summer.


Top: MAC Girl About Town (Amplified)
I originally bought this when looking for Show Orchid - which was a pro shade at the time, and this was the closest non pro shade I could find! It's a super super bright blue based pink - think the brightest Barbie pink then multiply it. I love this shade so much that I even got over the Amplified finish, being a matte girl myself. I can't describe this in any other way than it being just a happy shade - you genuinely feel brighter and better wearing this. The only thing I'll say is it does take some balls to wear so make sure you wear it confidently!

Middle: Kate Moss for Rimmel Shade 101
I know this shade looks a bit tame, and it is, but to me it's the most beautiful summer pink. It's soft, flattering on most skin tones, and just a gorgeous neutral. This is one of those literal 'throw on and go without a mirror' shades that somehow ends up looking as good as if you just spent 10 minutes with a lip brush and liner. 

Bottom: MAC Costa Chic (Frost)
Another finish that I wouldn't usually buy from MAC! The photos of this does not do this shade justice. Costa Chic is a deceivingly bright coral - it's literally almost neon. I find it looks best with an absolute overload of mascara and not much else. The only thing I will say with the frost finish is it's sometimes best to apply a single layer (it's very opaque) and then pat your lips down just to take a bit of the 'frostiness' off!


Have you got any bright summer shades you've been reaching for lately? We've not got long left to wear them before it's back to deep reds and purples (can't wait can't wait can't wait)!
