Whether you plan on going sweet boho, low-key rastafarian, country rugged, or summer goth in your style come June, you’re going to need a beat face to back all that up. And as we know, no beat is truly complete without a liquid lipstick to match. So, open up another tab on your computer and keep your wallets right, because here are five ah-mazing summer colors you’re going to want to buy pronto by the end of this here list.

1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Stockholm

This drugstore brand gives you so much bang for your buck, it is ridiculous. Pick up this nudey pink shade, which sits super comfortably on the lips, for a “my lips but better look.” For darker skin tones, pair with a brown lip liner for the best effect.

2. TOO FACED Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick, Mrs. Roper

Red lipstick is classic, but its more eccentric cousin, bright orange, turns heads no matter what. Try this matte tangerine color to add a burst of edge, fun and pop to any simple summer outfit!  

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, Ashton

A true nude, Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Ashton brings tons of sultry vibes to the plate, perfect for sophisticated lunches, everyday makeup looks and all your summer night hang outs.  

4. Lime Crime Matte Velvetines Liquid Lipstick, New Americana

Everyone needs a staple red in stock to itch those Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Betty Boop scratches. New Americana doesn’t disappoint as a bright tomato red guaranteed to hit the spot on your more glamorous occasions.

5. Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip, Sakura Delight

This black-owned business is killing the game with bold and opaque colors fit for any skin tone. Need to add a little oomph to your look? Take a little risk by sporting this bright fuchsia shade perfect for photo shoots, weekend getaways, and laying poolside in the sun.
