Lipstick Shades for Summer |

Make a splash with SL’s checklist of the hottest-coloured bullets for summer. From statement-making tomato red to striking neon pink or a subtle swipe of perky peach, these are the shades to add to your shopping list.


DKNY, Rag & Bone, Prabal Gurung...These were just a handful of the SS15 shows that made coral lips their beauty focal point. The ultimate sunshine shade, we suggest you do the same and team it with a pared-back face and bare peepers – just a slick of mascara should suffice. Come summertime, let the shade pop against a tanned complexion and bronzed, sculpted cheekbones. 


Shell Shock Coral Lip Conditioner, £22 | Ilia Beauty 
Lip Color Shine, £38 | Tom Ford 
Rouge Pur Couture, £26 | Yves Saint Laurent



Like red's cooler, younger sister, fuchsia is easier to wear than a hot pink shade, plus comes in a range of shades so there’s a version for brightening up every skin tone. One of the prettiest colours for the summer, we love how it adds extra drama to evening attire.


 Rouge Edition Lipstick, £7.99 | Bourjois 
Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick, £26 | Yves Saint Laurent
Sinner Lipstick - Hot Rose, £20 | Lipstick Queen


Neon Pink

Feeling brave? Slick on some Barbie pink for added oomph. Packing a punch is this girly shade and it’s the only accessory needed to counteract even the most pared-down of outfits.


Lipstick - Neon Angel, £22 | ILIA 
Lip Color Shine, £38 | Tom Ford
Baby Doll Kiss & Blush, £28.50 | Yves Saint Laurent
