My 5 Favorite Summer Lipsticks + Giveaway Winners

Hello everyone! I'm going to be sharing with y'all some of my favorite lipsticks from this summer so far. Surprisingly for me, most of them lean more towards the nude pinks with just one bright berry purple lipstick featured in my top five picks. What can I say? I've found myself reaching for no-fuss lip products the past couple of months, instead of my typical red lipstick or any other bolder lip color.
1. Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Tulip
I really love the Tarte lipsticks, and this is the newest addition to my little collection of three. I love how their lipsticks are moisturizing like a lip balm, yet have a great color payoff. This Tulip shade is a lovely rose-y pink shade that is a great mid-tone pink on my for when I want to have a little bit of color on my lips, that isn't too much.

2. TopShop Lipstick in The Damned
During my Chicago girls trip back at the end of June, I was able to pick up my very first TopShop lipstick and it is amazing! The color looks amazing with my cool skin-tone, and the lipstick isn't too dark and vampy -- as much as it might look in the tube, so it is a great everyday berry.

3. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
This was one of the little lip pencils included in the Sephora birthday gift this year, and I've been loving this lip pencil for those days I want a wash of color with some shine. On my lips, this particular shade is very close to my lip color so it adds just adds a slight wash of color, which is great for simple days.

4. Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Tea With the Queen
When a box of the entire collection of Butter London's lip crayons arrived in the mail last month, this was the one color I didn't think I would wear. Hehe...turns out it quickly become one of my favorites to wear. This particular shade leans more to the brownish-peach side, which is a color I typically never wear. Since this lip pencil is a nude shade, the color doesn't last forever or leave a stain [like the bright shades do from this line], so it isn't super long lasting.

5. Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner in EastEnd Snob
I adore this lip liner so much that I've gone through three this year so far. It is a great my-lips-but-better lip liner, that I wear as a lipstick. The lip liner it self is matte and long wearing. It can become a bit drying, so just make sure to wear a lip balm before putting it on. Typically I like my lip products to be moisturizing, but the color payoff and the longevity of this product makes up for that -- for me personally.

What lipsticks have y'all been loving this summer?

The two giveaway winners for the Jamberry Pedi Packs are the following: Lauren & Bekah. Congratulations, ladies! I'll be sending an email to y'all either later this evening, or tomorrow afternoon.
