Five Trending Lip Shades for Summer

Summer is here and so are summer lip trends! With weddings, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties filling out your summer schedule, take a moment to update your lip look with these five trending shades!

06 by Kate Moss for Rimmel ($4-$5, drugstores)

The shade simply called “06” is easily in my top five summer trending shades. Fashion icon Kate Moss paired up with Rimmel London for a limited run of lipsticks, and this cheeky coral is perfect for the season. This orange toned pink is perfect for transitioning from feminine pastels into free spirited, beachy summer tones.

Perky by Covergirl Blast Flipstick ($7-$10, drugstores)

Covergirl launched the flipstick line fairly recently, and they have been a clear winner season to season. Each product comes with two lip shades, one on each end. Perky’s pink is a clear cut winner this summer. This shade is playful while remaining appropriate for both day and night events. The formula wears all day with little wear and feels light going on. As a plus, the other end of Perky is a shimmery light pink, perfect for layering to create a more dramatic look.

Vegas Volt by MAC ($15, MAC Counters)

The bolder beauty mavens this summer have been diving into creamy orange tones, and that’s where Vegas Volt comes in. Vegas Volt is a creamy orangesicle shade that is just as fun as a weekend in its’ namesake- without breaking the bank! The creamy soft texture balances out the adventurous orange shade, making it the perfect balance of sweet and strong.  Bonus, the amplified formula used keeps the color staying creamy through dinner and drinks.

Apricot by Almay ($4-$5, drugstores)

Almay just released a line of liquid lip colors that are sheer with little fade out. The new line of liquid lip color offers lightweight color that goes on smooth and never feels sticky. The formula keeps lips from getting dried out, and the packaging is small enough to fit in any clutch you’ll be toting around this summer to your bridal events.  Apricot is a hot shade for summer that is always appropriate, quite demure, and universally flattering.


Fairytale by Covergirl ($6, drugstores)

Fairytale is the perfect name for this dreamy pink shade. Fairytale goes on creamy and soft, while working its’ magic in the color. This yellow-based pink has been trending recently, and Fairytale is one of the best examples of this to date. The formula lasts a long time and keeps lips from drying out- even in the summer heat. The light pink blends into most summer wardrobes seamlessly and is going to be a forerunner for your new favorite daily lip color.
