13 of the best lipsticks for summer 2018

A bold pop of colour on the lips is the perfect summer accessory. Whether you’re creating a glam night time look or wearing very little makeup during the day, a bright lipstick can totally transform your look, making any makeup summer-ready.

From scorching orange-reds to fuschia pinks, we’ve gathered together our must-have summer lipsticks which we simply can’t wait to wear as the weather heats up.

MAC Lady Danger is an absolute must-have lip product in the summer. The striking orange-toned red looks divine on all skin tones and perfectly flatters a sunkissed glow.

Create a customised lip look with the By Terry Twist-On Lipstick in the ultra-summery Peach and Tangerine shade. Combining two complimentary shades in one bullet, the Twist-On Lipstick can be used to create a two-toned lip look or a beautiful ombré effect.

Add a touch of pink to your summer makeup look with the PIXI Mattelast Liquid Lip in Prettiest Pinkl. The long-lasting matte formula will not nudge or flake and will stay looking perfect all day long.

Saturate your lips in a peachy-melon hue with the Marimekko x Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Melon Pop from Clinique. Housed in limited edition packaging, this beautiful product coats the lips in a smooth, velvety formula that lasts all day.

Add a touch of moisturising colour to your lips with the Lancôme Absolu Rouge Sheer Lipstick in 317. The hot pink, fushcia shade deposits a sheer wash of rosy colour on your lips to perk up your complexion.

The Ellis Faas Hot Lips in Bright Orange is the perfect orange shade to take you all the way through the summer. Rich in pigment with a satin finish, the Hot Lips hydrating colour looks beautiful and feels ultra-comfortable on the lips.

Create the illusion of a fuller pout with the Chantecaille Brilliant Lip Gloss in Enchant, the perfect pale pink shade to compliment all complexions. Developed with botanical microspheres, the gloss delivers a high shine finish without feeling sticky or tacky on the lips.

Be bold in the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Scorched, a shimmering copper hue to perfectly compliment your summer tan. Enriched with Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil, the Vice Lipstick feels comfortable on the lips yet lasts all day.

Be bold and daring in the Benefit Punch Pop Liquid Lip Colour in the shade Mango. With long-lasting, opaque colour, Punch Pop is sure to make a statement that last all through the day.

Coral is our favourite shade to wear during the summer. Perfectly perking up the complexion, coral is the ideal shade to go for if you're not quite ready to brave an orange lip but a pop of colour on your lips. We love the Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Colour in Yanilena, a bright, punchy coral.

Glossy, high-shine lips look beautiful whatever the weather but look especially divine in the sunshine. The adorable packaged Juicy Shaker Lip Gloss from Lancôme in 112 adds a sheer wash of peach colour to your lips with a mirror-like finish.

For a lip look that is out of this world, opt for a metallic lip cream this summer. The NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in the shade Celestial coats the lips in a rich, metallic gold sure to make an impact.

A satin, peachy lip will compliment any makeup look you create this summer. The NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi glides over the lips, leaving a behind a beautiful finish.
