With summer finally here, and the heat (and ever-present humidity) soon to follow, our makeup routines are about to go out the window. Instead of going completely barefaced, opt for a slick of color on the lips. It adds just enough polish, even when the city is sizzling. We gathered up 115 of our favorite lipsticks, glosses, balms, and stains in our latest Shop-A-Matic, and we asked Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty to chime in with her favorite fifteen picks. From hot-pink lipsticks guaranteed to make notice-me lips to balms that leave only a hint of color behind, there’s a hue for even the most makeup-phobic. Plus, we gathered a group of volunteers to sample the shades so you can see how the color translates from tube to pout. Check out five of Tia's favorite shades.
T. LeClerc Satin Lipstick in Rouge Vibrant
Why Shake Your Beauty Likes It: Almost too vampy to be legal, this smoldering red is just the thing for a night of cocktails and carousing.
Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal Lip Gloss in Sun Coral
Why Shake Your Beauty Likes It: Corals enhance sun-kissed skin, but when mixed in with caramel and a touch of shimmer, the gloss becomes the perfect nude.
Chanel Glossimer in Paillettes
Why Shake Your Beauty Likes It: With flecks of gold swirled into the rose gloss, this one is not only super-sexy but also plumps lips with its amped-up shine.
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Gloss in Enduring Love
Why We Like It: The peachy-pink lipstick slides on velvety smooth while accenting the natural tone of your lips. Wear it with the gloss end to keep your pout moisturized.
M•A•C Cosmetics Style Warrior Lipstick in Tribalist
Why We Like It: Layered on, the deep-berry hue will create statement-making lips; if a dark pout is too heavy for summer, blot and the shade becomes a sheer wash of color.
