Summer Red Pucker

Who doesn't love a good red lip? Reds make your teeth look whiter and instantly lift your complexion. During Summer, I prefer hot reds and coral reds.

& Other Stories have great lipstick options, and I love their metallic packaging. This one here (swatch on the left) is a demi matte in the shade Calamenco Coral (€15.00). It's comfortable on the lips and stays put very well. It's also a great shade for paler gals like me.

The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets (€13.00) are very hyped. I especially like the shade Hot Pepper, a true hot red. The Velvets are liquid lipsticks. I prefer to use them as a stain: applying a thin layer and sheering it out. Once they set, they won't budge. A genius product.

What are your favorite Summer reds?
