Top 10 Bright Lipsticks

I'm here today with a selection of my top 10 bright lipsticks. I would say these are for summer, but I'm that girl that wears neon pink all year round, so...

I'm going to start with one of my long term favourites, Tangerine Scream from Sleek.

This orange is briiiiiiiiiiight. Not one for the shrinking violets amongst you, this lipstick is a very yellow toned bright orange. Be wary, this will make your teeth look yellow. 

Now we've got another of my favourite liquid lipsticks from Jeffree Star Cosmetics in the shade Queen Supreme.

Queen Supreme is a sort of pastel neon powder pink? Is that a thing? It's very blue toned and is teetering on the edge of being lilac. This is another shade from Jeffree Star that I thought might not suit me, but I'm glad I got it because I'm obsesssssed!

Next we have two Rouge Edition Velvets from Bourjois in Pink Pong and Olé Flamingo.

The swatches never really do the Rouge Edition Velvets justice, they dry down very matte but it does take some time for them to do so. I'm sure these two pinks dry down to become even brighter. One is blue toned and the other is a raspberry-ish shade.

Next is another Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Prom Night. Tell I'm obsessed yet?

Prom Night is suuuuuuper bright hot pink. Like look at it for too long it'll burn your eyes hot pink. I've worn this a few times and can confirm that this doesn't budge. I overlined my lips with it and still had a pink stain around them the next day. Insane.

Candy Yum Yum from MAC is next.

Candy Yum Yum again is briiiiiiiiiiight! It's a blue toned pink and would flatter all skin tones. I bought mine from the Cosmetics Company Outlet in York for anyone keen to snag this in the UK. It was £11, so not much of a discount but I couldn't pass it up.

Onto purples now! Mystic from Sleek is one of my all time faves. 

Mystic is what you might call a wearable purple. On different skin tones it would look almost pink, and others it would glow with a blue hue. I've also thrown in an honourable mention of MAC's Magenta lip liner, which is virtually the same colour. 

Next up is... have you guessed yet? Yes it's Heroine from MAC.

I was soooooooo excited when this was made permanent! It's a perfect middle of the road purple that doesn't lean too blue or pink. I just want to roll in it, ahhhh.

Another Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick. Be still my beating heart.

I'm Royalty is a blue toned royal purple and is utterly gorgeous. I haven't had the guts to wear this in public yet but I reaaaally want to. Once the sun's out and I've stopped caring this may be my summer lip of choice. 

Finally we've reached the last lipstick! And it's another from Sleek.

Smother is such a strange colour. Swatched it looks quite reddy pinky purple, but on the lips it becomes an intense deep purple colour. This is one of my all time favourite lipsticks and it's just a bonus that it only costs £5. I may need to start a backup collection of this lipstick.

Here's a full photo of all the swatches :)

Is this the end? Nah, I've got some more honourable mentions for you ;)

These are the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids lipsticks for all you brights lovers. I know I'll be putting these aaaaallover my mouth this summer.

And Fuchsia Flash is a pretty close dupe for Candy Yum Yum ;)
