Trendiest Summer LIP SHADES

There’s so much to love about summer! Everything gets a little brighter – especially when it comes to our hair, nails or even makeup. We’re all determined for this summer to be different than the last, roaring ‘20s round two. In turn, we’ll be sure to see some bright and playful lips! Those soft nudes and browns will be taking a backseat as vibrant and pastel hues come out to play.

While Covid-19 put a stop to a majority of lip trends last year, the gloss texture trend has been starting back up and lip products are once again a must-have makeup essential. Since masks are still a part of our everyday routine, using a matte lipstick is the best lip product that won’t bleed or transfer. For when you remove your mask, you can apply a gloss to give your lips a nice shiny finish. This way, you can still participate in the colorful trends without sacrificing the residue on your mask.

These summer colors will be reflective of all our moods, especially as we look towards moving forward after a rough year and start to get our lives back on track. See below for long-lasting *vegan* lip products with shades that you’ll be sure to see all over your IG feed and IRL too!

Lime Crime has been a vegan and cruelty-free brand before it was the norm. The brand is known for their vibrant and colorful makeup and hair products so individuals can celebrate life through color. Beet It Matte Lipstick ($20, limecrime.com) is a perfect base. You can top it off with a coat of lip gloss like, Extra Extra Poppin Wet Cherry Lip Gloss ($24, limecrime.com).

Christian Audette, the luxury beauty brand recently partnered with Gigi Goode to create a limited-edition collection of four new lip products. BLOODE ($29, christianaudette.com) is a suede matte bold red lipstick that is formulated to be hydrating and comfortable on the lips, while also having the staying power of a matte. The lipstick is enriched with Vitamins C & E to support collagen production and fight free radicals, while moisturizing ingredients work to hydrate and prevent creasing, flaking and drying.

Honest Beauty offers a Demi Matte Lip Crayon in Peony ($12.99, honest.com) which locks in high-impact color with a glide-on-the-go matte lip crayon. The satiny soft lip crayon delivers a luscious, demi-matte finish. For those who are more of a lip balm fanatic the Tinted Lip Balm in Dragon Fruit ($8.99, honest.com) is for you. It’s a happy medium between the balm and lipstick which you’ve been craving in a sheen, juicy sweet shade.

Kat Von D has a beautiful Exclusive Liquid Lipstick Bundle Vol. III ($34, kvdveganbeauty.com) with three full-size everlasting liquid lipsticks in shades perfect for summer! This high-pigment liquid formula glides over lips and dries to a long-lasting, true matte finish. Plus, it’s packed with natural moisturizers, including Vitamin E and sunflower seed wax so it’s comfortable yet beautiful.

Poolside Picks

Dive into your summer reading list

(Family Features) Laying out on the beach and floating in the pool are true hallmarks of summer. A good book, however, can elevate these relaxing experiences to a new level.

Whether you find yourself looking for a beach read, a book for the pool or something to help you escape while lounging on the couch with the windows open, these sizzling summer reads offer something for nearly every type of reader. From suspense to romance and adventure, you don’t want to miss these books this summer.

Some Secrets Aren’t Meant to Be Shared

From author Meg Mitchell Moore comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer. In “Two Truths and A Lie” the leader of an idyllic beach town “mom squad” has made surprising effort to include a new resident and her daughter in typically closed-group activities, though they’re not the only ones she’s been spending more time with. A blend of propulsive thriller and gorgeous summer read, Moore’s latest novel is a reminder that happiness isn’t always a day at the beach, some secrets aren’t meant to be shared and the most precious things are loved ones.

Romantic Adventure Proves Anything Can Happen

No. 1 “New York Times” bestseller Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns to her Chicago Stars series with a romance between a quarterback and one of the world’s greatest opera singers – and a major diva – in “When Stars Collide.” It’s Mozart meets Monday night football as the temperamental soprano and stubborn jock embark on a nationwide tour promoting a luxury watch brand, they engage in soul-searching, trash talk and backstage drama. Threatening letters, haunting photographs and a series of dangerous encounters also complicate their lives and make them wonder if it’s the work of an overzealous fan or something more sinister.

Transatlantic Love Story Raises the Royal Stakes

“New York Times” and “USA Today” bestselling author Alyssa Cole’s second Runaway Royals novel, “How to Find a Princess,” is an Anastasia-inspired romance featuring a long-lost princess who finds love with the female investigator tasked with tracking her down. When a threat to her grandmother’s livelihood pushes the princess to return to Ibarania, the investigator takes her on a transatlantic adventure. When they finally make it, they realize there’s more at stake than just cash and crown, and the princess must learn what it means to fight for what she desires rather than what she feels bound to by duty.
