3 budget-friendly, fun and vibrant lipsticks

Today's post is in protest of the ever-nearing end of the Summer! I know, I know, we've still got plenty of Summer sun left, I'm sure, but I'm looking out the window at clouds at the moment and needed to cheer myself up! Hopefully these budget-friendly lippies will have the same effect on you!

Left to right: Seventeen Manhunt; L'oreal Aphrodite Scarlet; NYX Fig
I have to say that Seventeen's Stay Pout lipstick in Manhunt is an insanely pigmented vibrant orange-red lipstick! It almost took me aback how long it lasted, and even after removing it with micellar water, it stained my lips! It is a comfortable matte to wear compared to some formulations that dry lips out too much.

Aphrodite Scarlet
L'oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick is a contrast to Seventeen because the formulation is very balmy and light. This lipstick offers a sheer pop of colour, so if you're not feeling daring, this is a great option. Aphrodite Scarlet may not be available anymore, but this range is worth checking out. This shade is a sheer scarlet with some pink reflects in it to make your lips look kissable!

Finally, NYX's Fig is a medium pink which is a very wearable colour and would suit a range of skin tones. Its cream formula makes it easy to wear and the opacity and pigmentation is superb!

What is your favourite lipstick shade for Summer?

  1. It's really nice because it's vibrant but definitely an everyday wearable colour. You should hunt it down! x

  2. I love the fig shade too, it's the sort of colour I usually go for :)

    1. I wish NYX was more easily available in the UK because the range of colours is huge! x

  3. Great post! All this shades are totally out of my comfort zone, but maybe i should step out of it :)

    1. They are a bit for me too, but sometimes it's fun to branch out and do something different with your make-up! I checked out your blog by the way and I love your collection of sneakers! x
