This Summer I've Been Loving...

So it seems that summer is sadly nearly over. I think its been one of the best summers England's had in years due to the fact we've actually had sun! However unfortunately the days are now getting shorter and autumns definitely on its way, so I thought I would show you some things i've been loving this summer. The first being orange coral lips. I've always been a pink/reddy lip colour girl, but have been loving a more summery colour over the last few months. Here I have chosen my favourite 5 out of my collection to show you. 

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Colour £7.99 here
The first one being Bourjois's Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach. This particular colour has been raved about widely on many a blog since it was launched a few months back. The colour is so lovely. I find these are also pretty moisturising, and the colour lasts fairly well, I only find myself topping up a few times throughout the day. Their  pretty glossy but not sticky like some lip crayons i've tried. I think theres currently 4 colours in the range which are all pretty summery so hopefully we'll get some deeper shades for autumn.
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick £15.50 here 
This is definitely the most orange lipstick I own. Its by MAC and is a Sheen Supreme formula in the colour Fashion City. Its a really true orange which seemed pretty scary to me when I first tried it but I'm 100% a convert. I find it really flattering and feel it really complements a tan, however slight mine may be... This is the most expensive orange toned lippy I own but its such a lovely colour and formula I really think its worth the dosh.

 
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer £6.49 here

The next one i've found myself reaching for on many occasions is Rimmels Apocalips in Luna. I first saw this shade on Emily's blog here back in July and fell in love with it. I'm a massive fan of the Apocalips collection and have a fair few colours in my collection. Again this is a product that is famous in the blogger world, and rightly so if you ask me! They have a lovely range of colours, which last well, don't dry the lips out and are affordable!


Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish £5.49 here
The next lippy is a much more pink toned coral than any of the others. Its from the Kate Moss collection for Rimmel and is in the colour 16 which is lovely and summery. The only issue I have with this one is if you have slightly dry lips then it does accentuate that unfortunately. However if your lips are lovely as smoooooooth, then this colour is gorgeous! 

Revlon Lip Butter £7.99 here
Finally, saving my favourite till last, it Revlon's Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya. I absolutely love this and it has become my go to orange/coral lip colour. The lip butters are fairly sheer which makes them alot less scary to wear than it they were an opaque colour. These are so moisturising as well making them perfect for people prone to dry lips like myself. 

Thanks for reading, what have you been loving this summer?
