I typically wear a smokey eye and neutral lip gloss or a red lip, but the vivid lip colors trend really caught my eye. I wasn’t too sure about it – I figured I should leave that for the youngins and the cat walk. But curiosity got the best of me, and I just had to at least try the neon pinks and coral shades. I purchased Bite Beauty’s High Pigment Matte Pencil in Fuschia and immediately fell in love with its smooth texture. At first, my image in the mirror shocked me. It was so bright! But I think it looks great with a white shirt and jeans, and it’s the perfect touch of drama for night. I couldn’t really get into the neon purples or yellow. When it comes to trends, there’s a line. It needs to be wearable for a variety of occasions without looking “costumey.” But there are so many beautiful colors to choose from, I can’t get enough of it. Go ahead and have fun this season! Here are 5 vivid lip colors you should try this summer.
Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil – Fuschia 1 of 5
Here's the lip color I'm wearing in the first image - Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Fuschia. This brand has a variety lip pencils worth a try. The colors are not only vivid but they go on smoothly, leaving your lips moisturized. It's very creamy and lasts quite a bit throughout the day - But you should definitely keep it handy in your purse. You will need to reapply if you're out.
MAC Neon Orange 2 of 5
MAC Neon Orange is a beautifully rich and perfect color for summer. I was a bit concerned it wouldn't look good on me, as my skin color has a lot of yellow undertones. However, it worked out just fine - looks fresh and clean. MAC has quite a few oranges to choose from if you're looking for something vivid but a little less neon - like Morange and Lady Danger (if you prefer a touch of red).
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids – Shocking Coral 3 of 5
I really like Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids collection. It's super creamy and the color choices are so much fun. At such an affordable price, I say get them all and play around with different looks!
NARS Schiap – Semi Matte Shocking Pink 4 of 5
Who doesn't love NARS for their rich colors? Their Schiap lip color is a favorite for its vividness and long lasting wear. Definitely the go-to color if you want to truly commit to the neon color trend!
Yves Saint Laurent – Rouge Pur Couture 5 of 5
If "shocking" is not your speed and you prefer the classics - You can compromise with a bold red like Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Pur Couture. It's just the right amount of bold for summer but still elegant for all occasions.
