Ready for the Sunshine.

The sun has officially made an appearance this week and even though I've only managed to catch a few rays from 5pm, it's still got me well and truly in the mood for summer time make up. The biggest change in my make up bag will certainly be my lip colours. MAC Rebel will be retiring from it's duties as my statement lip colour until the days get darker again. Instead I've made a switch round to Morange for the summer months, to brighten up my lips even if it's cloudy.

Nudes are acceptable any time of year, in my opinion. So this lippy from Sleek in Barely There is the perfect spring/summer nude. It's not too crazy and won't wash me out, but instead gives me a nice subtle colour with a hint of pinkiness to add a flush of colour. This will be perfect for those days I'm wanting that no-make-up, make up look.

Of the lip products I've tried recently this one from P.S. Love in Primark has to be one of the strangest. This is very much like applying a felt tip pen to my lips. This lip stain is a corally-pink colour and literally stains your lips. I originally swatched this on my hand in store and noticed that even at the end of the day the swatch hadn't budged, then I knew I needed to pick on of these up next time I was in store. I'm not sure how I feel about this on it's own at the moment, but I think it will look fab under another lippy and give me some super lasting power for those sweaty days.

What are your favourite lip colours for summer?
