Summer is the perfect time to pull off a hot pink lip or try out that bright coral you have been meaning to wear. 

It is such a fun time of the year for experimenting with colour and playing around with products you are otherwise hesitant to. I have rounded up 5 of my favourite lipsticks for this time of year and wanted to share them with you for a bit of inspiration.

YSL Rouge Volupte 13 - This fun creamy coral shade is the perfect everyday colour to wear during the warmer weather. It incorporates the fun of experimenting with coral while still being quite wearable and subtle. You can read more about this particular colour here.

Practically anything from the Maybelline Rebel Bloom collection is amazing for the season but 740 Coral Burst is particularly great as an eye catching lip colour. It is a really intense and bright coral that looks nearly florescent on the lips. It is a Summer spin on the classic red lip and much more "in your face".
If you are looking for a true opaque and bold pastel then you can't go wrong with MAC Vegas Volt which has been my go-to coral colour for years. It is a candy coral with a slight pastel finish and really pops when worn with a gloss over the top.

MAC Candy Yum Yum is a bright bubble gum pink that stands out more than any of the other lipsticks because it is so bright it practically glows on your lips. It is a barbie doll pink but it's high pigmentation and matte finish takes it to the next level.
I love using MAC Im-Passioned instead of a red lipstick in the Summer because it is practically still red but has a brighter and pinker undertone to it that keeps it fresh for the season. It is a must-have for any lipstick collection and I find myself constantly using it.

Those are my top five lipstick picks for the season to keep your lips bright and bold. I also love all of these lip products because of their high quality and smooth formulation that makes them all really easy to wear.

YSL and MAC are available from counters at David Jones and Myer. Maybelline is available from a variety of chemists and retailers such as Kmart.
