K.I.T. Keep It Simple is usually how I approach fashion, makeup and the trends that go with them so adding bold colors to my lippy collection is generally out of my comfort zone. Sure you can find me in a red on occasion. Ruby Woo was my first red lippy and it remains in my rotation, but 95% of the time I wear a tinted gloss. I even go as simple as tinted lip balm or Vaseline. Yes, that simple. Today I am teaming up with some of my favorite bloggers to share our favorite summer lipsticks. Thanks to Vee of VeePeeJay for inviting me to join in on the fun. Check out my picks and then click on over to my girls for even more summer Lip-spiration!
My Favorite Summer Lipsticks
I love a classic red lippy for the summer. My current favs are MAC Red and On Fire Red from Maybelline Color Sensational New Vivids. Reds glam up the simplest of looks. I’ve been known to rock a red with my Chuck Taylor’s and a tank top.
No summer lippy collection is complete without a gloss. MAC Boy Bait is still my every day go to. Gives me just enough nude shine to feel like I put some effort into stepping out…to the grocery store. Ha!
1. Perfect in Pink
For my birthday, I decided to go “crazy.” Well crazy for me anyway by rocking a haute pink lippy. This lippy made me feel all sorts of grown and sexy. The compliments were pouring in and I even had my sisters try it on. It worked for all of us and we are 3 different shades of beautiful browness. How’s that for a WIN!
What color is it you ask? My winning pick is Wild Rose. Another pretty from the Maybelline Color Sensational New Vivids line.
Oh the joy, the price and the beauty of it. I could seriously wear this everyday.
Of course I have an honorable mention. I am still coveting MAC Flat Out Fabulous. Here is a pic of my baby sister and I. She is rocking Flat Out Fabulous. How’s that for new mom hauteness. My sissy is a beauty inside and out.

You are definitely “Perfect In Pink” MJ! And you and your sister are two beauties! You already know that I’m over here loving the reds and a nude lip is just as fabulous, too!

I love red on you! Bold and beautiful. Thanks for the compliments. I definitely need a big sun hat and some sunnies to step up my summer lippy overall look.
