5 Hot Lipstick Shades You Need This Summer

By  | 

Gone are the days of glitter, metallic, and holographic lips! Take a break from those shades, and bring on the colours of spring-summer, like literally! A pop of colour is all you need to step up your makeup game, and throw those passé winter hues some shade.

Summer is a perfect excuse to wear all the brights you’ve been eyeing, ’cause why not? Here are a few colours to add to your lipstick collection RN!


Revlon Ultra HD – Temptation (Rs 1195)

Lakme Absolute – Le Fuscia (Rs 675)

Fuchsia Pink

Ever since Priyanka Chopra wore that hot pink pant suit, and New York Fashion Week was dominated by hot pink EVERYTHING, it’s been established that pink is the new black! Spring is a great time to wear this statement lip colour. So if you are ever worried about a boring outfit, amp it up with a fuchsia lippie, and you’ll never look under dressed again!


Colorbar – Take Me As I Am (Rs. 950)

Faces Ultime Pro – Tangy Orange (Rs.899)


If you read ‘Orange’ and scrolled through quickly (’cause who would ever wear that?), hold up! At times it does seem like orange is a difficult colour to work with, but there’s a smart way to do orange. Stay away from glossy or shimmer formulas if you are going for a not-so in-your-face look. Stick to matte and satin finish only!


Milani – Obsession (Rs. 1000)

Eylina Lip Crayon – Radiant Orchid (Rs. 299)


Purples and blues are generally the underdogs of the lipstick clan, but you will be shocked to know how much it can liven up your outfit. For those of you who usually shy away from this colour, use a subtle shade of lavender or plum, maybe.


NYX – Amsterdam (Rs. 600)

SUGAR Matte Crayon – Scarlett O’Hara (Rs. 799)


Haven’t you heard; whatever the problem, the solution is red lipstick! This colour is all set to turn up the heat this summer! It is perfect for the day time as a stain, or sizzling for a date night too. You can barely ever go wrong with this shade you know.


Lakme 9 to 5 – Coral Crush (Rs. 600)

Avon – Coral Fever (Rs 398)


If red or orange are too bright for you, opt for a coral shade that works well with any skin colour. A sheer coat of coral is perfect to brighten up fair skin, while an opaque one can make for a great colour on darker skin. A coral shade is definitely a must-have for spring, and on the bright side, it works well all year round!

So which shade are you willing to try this season? Comment below.
