With the weather getting warmer and things are getting a little more sticky and sweaty, we don't want to worry about our lip products smudging and wearing off. I know myself I get a little cranky when the weather gets hotter and so reapplying my lip product is never on top of my lists of things to do, so today I have a selection of easy to wear lip products that not only feel light on the lips but require no to very little up keep through out the day.
There is something here for everyone's budget so to kick it all off is Maybelline Colour Elixir in the shade Alluring Coral. Now not only is this colour such a beautiful summer shade but they feel so lovely on the lips. The lightweight formula is neither sticky or drying and literally glides across the lips delivering a strong impact of colour. They come in some gorgeous shades and as they wear off they leave a subtle tint to the lips. Perfecto. Next is a little bit different and it's a lip oil, this one from YSL in the shade Cherry My Cherie is a beaut. Lip Oil...sounds strange but actually really comfortable to wear. The oil sensation wears off after about 10 mins and then you are left with moisturised , glossy lips again like the Maybelline one it stains as it leaves meaning you have colour on your smackers for longer.

Now if you are more of a lipgloss lover you will love NYX Buttergloss in Peaches & Cream. I hate lipgloss but these are in a league of their own. I think I now own every shade in Ireland. They are non-sticky, taste incredible (you know you lick your lip product off) and they last for so long on the lips without drying out the lips. I cannot recommend them enough. Another great drugstore find is the NYC Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain, I have the shade In The Spotlight and these are great for people who only want a wash of colour. They literally add the very limited amount of colour to the lips but they stain the lips and it sticks around for a good few hours on the lips again without drying the lips out and the best part they cost under €4.
Who could not include the beautiful L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Lipstick in Rose Symphony, these are a little stickier than the rest but they are full on colour and leave the lips feeling really nourished. They don't leave a stain however they are the kind of lip product you can apply without a mirror as they are fool proof. They also smell incredible. Obviously a fuss-free lip product post wouldn't be complete without a YSL Glossy Stain. The shade I have is 112 and it's more on the red side of pink and makes the perfect summer nights shade. These stick around on the lips literally all day and the best thing they are non-sticky...who can deal with a sticky lip product on a humid day.
So there you have it my top picks for a fuss-free summer lip. The products that are guaranteed to stick around and give you one less thing to worry about. Let me know what your favourite long lasting lip product is in the comments below.
