Show Us Your Favourite...with C.S.I Beauty Blog

For all you beauty lovers out there I have a guest post today you are going to love! Say hello to M from C.S.I Beauty Blog and she is going to show us her favourite summer lipsticks. (Just a hint, I am swooning over her first pick as it is totally up my street and would be perfect with my 50's summer dresses)

Hi I'm M and I run a joint blog with one of my best friends called Cosmetics Shopping and Intoxication. We are primarily a beauty blog but write about a variety of things. As the weather seems to be brightening up a bit and hopefully summer will be here soon I thought I'd share my favourite lipsticks for summer! I'm a huge bright lip fan, I do occasionally wear a nude but I prefer brighter 
colours on my pale complexion. 
These are the lipsticks I grab most for during the summer months! Nothing like a bright colour! Untitled 
 First up is a lipstick from Bourjois. Is the Rouge Edition in shade 15 (Rouge Podium). This retails for £7.99. It's a really soft red lipstick. It can be built up for a stronger red lip but if you only use one coat it gives a really soft more natural hint of colour.
Next up is my current favourite bright pink. This is another Bourjois Rouge Edition in shade 07 (Fuchsia Graffiti). This is an amazing super pigmented blue toned pink so perfect for making the teeth appear whiter.
This is one of the nudes I have been reaching for lately. Mac Sheen Supreme is Fashion City. This retails for £14.50. This one is perfect for summer as it's a moisturising almost glossy finish lipstick. It's a great soft orange nude shade for anyone who is unsure of orange tones. Untitled
Mac Cremesheen in Fanfare is one of my favourite easy to wear lipsticks. This retails for £14. For me this is on of those your lips but better shades. It's a soft rose pink with slight yellow undertones to make it quite a warm shade. I tend to reach for this if I can't be bothered to think too much of what lipstick will go best with my eye make up. It's so easy to wear, it's also a great texture, very pigmented but glides on.
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Shade 27 Rose Paris. This doesn't come across well on camera. It's a very bright coral shade with definite pink and orange tones to it. This looks amazing with a tan. I do find the colour is so strong I can't wear it through winter. Which when it costs £23.50 isn't ideal but the texture of this lipstick wins me over. It literally glides onto the lips and is completely opaque in one swipe. It's also not soft in the tube so can be a handbag lipstick. I also love the packaging! Untitled
The packaging has changed on these since I purchased mine. I personally prefer the bright blue packaging as it's easy to spot in my lipsticks but I do understand the change. This is the 17 mirror shine lipstick in Peace. In the tube it looks almost neon pink but when swatched and on the lips gives a gorgeous sheer wash of colour. I find this colour so wearable and gives a beautiful pink subtle wash to the lips. These retail for £4.79
Lastly is Kate Moss Matte Collection for Rimmel in the Shade 110. These retail for £5.49. The pigmentation and quality of this collection is amazing. The colour is so strong and while being a matte lipstick isn't overly drying on the lips. It has a texture to the lipstick which reminds me of the YSL Rouge Volupte. It's a coral red shade that really brightens up the look. So there are my favourite shades. 

What shades do you prefer in summer?

So girls what is your opinion. Which lipstick are you loving right now? Are you a bit of gloss girls or more into the bright colours.
