The Lip Colors You Can't Live Without + $1225 Nordstrom Giveaway!

The Summer Lip Colors You Can't Live Without and $1225 Nordstrom Giveaway! -

When it comes to the summer months, I am all about the pink and bright lip colors. From bold berry hues to peachy-keen shades, this season is one where you can play up your lip game.

Now, to set the record straight, I am not one to wear pink clothing or accessories often - in fact I am a HUGE fan of black, white and all other neutrals. But, when it comes to lips, this is a different story. Whether it's an added pop to an outfit or the perfect natural pout, these shades are the ones that I love to rock this time of year (and some of them year-round!):

  • Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Color, "Spiced Rose" - this neutral pink is a fantastic everyday color! Seriously, this lippie is on major rotation for me; it's the one I reach for when you don't have time to think about other options. You won't regret owning this no-fail shade.
  • MAC, "Coral Bliss" - such a fun color for summer! I love pairing it with an all white ensemble, especially on those days where I'm hanging by the beach.
  • NARS Audacious Lipstick, "Anita" - one of the best colors/formula EVER. My love for NARS Audacious lipsticks is infinite. The color pigments are amazing, and last throughout the day (I usually only have to touch up once or so). And when it comes to a gorgeous pink lip, this shade is to-die-for. Shoutout to all of my olive-skin-toned gals out there - you HAVE to give this one a try! *Tip: add a layer of BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Spark Plug for some added shine that pairs beautifully! 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, "Crush" - I was so skeptical of a liquid lipstick until I tried this bad boy. Wowza! The pigment and long-lasting formula is a dream come true. Not kidding, this lipstick didn't budge a centimeter all day. I adore Crush, it's a great neutral lip color. My other favorites include Kathryn, Catnip and Soft Lilac.
  • MAC, "Velvet Teddy" - If there was ever a must-have natural pink shade in your makeup arsenal, this is it. You'll thank me later.
  • Bobbi Brown Gloss, "Bare Sparkle" - High shine and natural pigment for a casual day when you want a little sparkle, or use it as a topper over any matte lipstick! 
  • NARS Audacious Lipstick, "Brigitte" - A salmon/coral pink that's begging to be worn in the summer. Pair it with a white monochrome ensemble as a pop of color - don't forget your blush!
  • Bobbi Brown Lipstick, "Pink Mauve" - One of my favorite everyday pinks. This lipstick goes with me everywhere! It's that just-in-case kind of lippie that never disappoints.
  • BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Gloss, "Hot Shot" - A glossy dose of bright magenta never hurt a soul. 
  • Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color, "Razzberry" - A bold, matte magenta that you will LOVE. I get compliments on this lip color every time that I wear it! 
  • MAC, "MAC Red" - that no-fail red shade that every gal should have. Let's turn up the heat on a date night with this sexy little lip, yeah?
