If there's one thing I love about the changing seasons, it's changing up my lipstick colors. As a lipstick fanatic, I make sure to stock my collection with particular shades for each season (not going to lie though, you can catch me with a dark, vampy lip in the middle of summer sometimes because I'm obsessed).

When summer hits, I'm all about bright, bold shades. An eye-catching pop of coral, red, or bright pink on the lips with a neutral toned eyeshadow look is my go-to for these sunny months. 

I've had a handful of lipsticks in rotation these past couple months, and I'm going to share those with you today. Hopefully this post will help those who are on the search for the perfect, signature statement lip shade for this season. Did I mention almost all of these are drugstore lipsticks? Can I get an amen for affordable makeup?

So, without further ado, here are my absolute favorite bright summer lipstick shades!

1. Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick in "Rose Rush"

Y'all. This color is EVERYTHING. I have loved this shade for quite some time now. It's a beautiful, bright, coral toned red. I love the formula, it's so comfortable and creamy. It isn't fully opaque, as you can see by the swatch, which I really enjoy because it almost gives a popsicle-stained look to the lips.  Very summery and gorgeous. 

2. Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in "All Fired Up"

This is the perfect, bold, feminine, blue-toned pink. I've always loved Maybelline's Creamy Matte line. They're never overly drying and feel comfortable on the lips. They're also very opaque. This shade is very close to a Revlon Matte Balm that I'm going to talk about later in this post. I will say that the staying power of the Maybelline Cream Matte lipsticks is better than the Revlon Matte Balms.

3. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in "Audacious"

This orange-coral shade is not for the faint of heart. It may not look like it, but this shade comes across extremely bright on the lips in a very flattering way. All of Revlon's Matte Balms have an incredibly creamy, smooth consistency, which I mentioned in my previous post "Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks for Fall." (Check out that post if you want to get a jump on fall lip shades).  

4. Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in "Phantom"

The one and only liquid lipstick on this list. This shade is a striking red with orange undertones. It dries completely matte and has good lasting power. Wear a lip balm under this one though, it can get a little drying, as most liquid lipsticks can. 

5. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in "Unapologetic" 

This shade is very close in tone to #2 on this list, with just a little less depth. It's a blue-toned bright pink, with a matte finish, and an extremely comfy smooth consistency. I love this line because they are so easy to apply thanks to their crayon-like tip. 

6. Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in "Craving Coral" 

This one's a creamy, long-wearing matte coral-orange shade. There's more of a red tone in this one compared to #3 on this list, but less red as compared to #4. It's right in the middle. It's very bright, and pulls more orange on my lips. I love using this shade with a gold/bronze eye makeup look.

7. Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel in Bloom Lipstick in "Carnation Cabernet"

I've noticed this shade is a little hard to find now since it was part of a limited edition line; but, I still wanted to include it because it's different than my other favorite bold lip colors, and you can still get in off Amazon. This is a blue-toned fuchsia/magenta shade that finishes with a sheen. Absolutely lovely on the lips! I love that it is a bright purple-y shade that is actually wearable.

Those are all of my favorite bright summer lipstick shades! I hope you all enjoyed this list, and that it will help you find the perfect bright shade to rock this summer!

Stay tuned for more posts soon!
