The Dog Days of Summer are here. The sun is out, the fans are fluttering, the sunnies are on and I'm stash diving for the perfect warm weather lippies. I go for fair skin friendly shades that also look good, should I decide to break out the sunless tanner and bronzer.


Don't worry. I'm not going to bombard you with a long post and thirty products, today. It's just too hot and I'm too busy. Here are four perfect summer lip colours that I like to reach for.

Let us begin with a perfect, my lips but better, neutral. Choose a neutral that works best for your skin tone. I like pink-neutrals like the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil - in - Stick Lipstick. This is a beautifully pigmented but feather light, hydrating formula that, while not super long wearing keeps my lips moisturized and comfortable and it's so easy to apply that I can smack it on, anywhere even without a mirror. My favorite shade is 08 - Pink in Confidence.

When it comes to pink-pink, in the summertime I like it bright. Every line has it's gorgeous bright pinks, Georgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick has a silky, gel like feel and a softly glossy finish that bathes my lips in moisture, all day. The shade I love is 501 - Peony.

Coral. Ahhh... Coral. How I love thee. I like redish corals, orange corals and of course, pink-y corals. What must they have in common? Supreme comfort. My lips demand it! I'm cursed. Cursed, I tell ya. I assume that a lipstick is still available so I take pictures of it and... Yeah. Not so much. The coral I have in this picture is Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lipstick in Juicy Melons. Since it isn't available, another coral that I really love is Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick in Balmy Nectar. Here's a picture:

Oh, stop laughing. I was going through a phase.

While we're on the subject of Mirabella lippies, every summer lipstick lineup needs a chic, classic red. I am exceedingly fussy about the red lippies I wear and even more so, if the formula is matte. Let me tell ya, Mirabella Modern Matte Lipstick in Crimson is a winner. Gorgeous, easy to apply, amazingly comfortable to wear, this perfectly balanced red is perfect on fair skin or paired with a tan.

So, there we have it. My favorite summer lip colours. What are the colours you like to reach for most often this time of year?
