TOP 12 Summer Lipsticks

When it comes to numbers, I prefer even numbers. When I was a kid, seeing the number 24 always made me feel good. For no apparent reason, my head would get weirdly excited when I saw it's 24th on the kitchen calendar. I don't know why. This is just a thing, and I'm not saying odd numbers freak me out, or anything.
Then I grew up, and married a guy who is more obsessed with even numbers. Now even the volume on our TV has to be an even number- 16, 20, 24... 40. If it's 15, he will pick up the remote and bring it up or down to the closest even number. Maybe I should ask him what he thought of '24' when he was a kid, no? o.O
So! Here are my (TOP 5) TOP 12 Summer Lipsticks:
From left to right:
  1. Colorbar Crème Touch Lipstick Mauve Bliss 034 ~ A glossy light mave-pink that goes perfectly with smoky purple eye makeup. I have not swatched this yet, but you can see another shade - Passionate - that I know is a best-seller because of 'out of stock'here
  2. Maybelline SuperStay Lipstick Stay With Me Coral ~ I have serious issues with the  bumps on this lipstick, but I love the color too much to not use it.
  3. Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #16 ~ Swatches here
  4. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Rendezvous ~ The only orange lippy I use these days. Swatches here
  5. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Sweetheart ~ You know I love this! Swatches here
  6. Maybelline SuperStay Lipstick Infinitely Fuchsia ~ This is without a doubt my favorite fuchsia pink lipstick. I just can't get enough of it! Swatches here
  7. Hello Kitty Lipstick By Superdrug Betz Believe ~ This is officially my favorite rosy pink lipstick. Trying to find a shade exactly like it from other brands. If you know any, please tell me. Swatched here
  8. Maybelline Color Sensational The Jewels Collection Berry Brilliant ~  I love to use this lightly as a lip stain. Swatches here
  9. Deborah Milano Rosetto MilanoRed #2 ~ A lovely peachy nude shade that's become a favorite. I wore it here 
  10. MAC Lustre Lipstick Patisserie ~ Obviously. Swatches here
  11. MAC Veronica Lipstick Daddy's Little Girl ~ Satin finish. The unique one I reach for when I don't want to wear any other color. I wore it here
  12. MAC Veronica Lipstick Ronnie Red ~ Matte finish. I like that this has a berry pink undertone, which makes it cooler-toned. Swatched here 
Hope you enjoyed this lipstick post. Would love to know the lippies that top your list this summer, too! Oh, and it doesn't have to be an even number ;)

  2. I don't have a preference for even numbers, but I too have always loved/been fascinated by the number 24 because my birthday is on the 24th. ;)

    As for lipsticks, I switch through so many! xD But I also find myself reaching for Rendezvous when I want to go orange, as well as the New Milani Color Statement lipsticks (Naturally Chic and Flamingo Pose).

    3. Please do the review of the Kate moss #16 Just that. I love the color.
      Cynthia, I had one query - I am a NC 43 in MAC. the MAC guys say I should stick to dark colors ala Rihanna, bipasha,etc, and I don't like Dark lippies at all.. I hate them.. Is it alright to still use these lipsticks.
      Personally I feel that I would not like dark colors on my at all. and I am tanned to bits. However when I use the light colors on me, I love them.. something wrong with me?

  6. Oh my! I'm ocd like that too. As a kid I was obsessed with even numbers and now I need 5 and its multiples in my life always. I used to reduce/increase the volume of the tv as a kid to make it even! I finally know of someone who is as sorted and reasonable as I am! :D
    Oh and The kate moss #16 is a favourite here too, and so is #20. Just because of the formula, the revlon stain in lovesick (but I want sweetheart!) MAC Daddy's little girl and oh you know what, I'll copy u and do a post! :P

  9. I can so so relate to this even number obsession....just give me a marker or a pen and I will keep writing number 24 again and again and again....I thought I was the only weirdo :P . BTW just loved all the lip colors..I kept drooling at the first pic for so long... as if lippies are the most beautiful things in the world :P

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
