Summer means many things to many people; however, the change in season brings out the best colors. And where else can you express the joy of the sun than through the color on your lip? However, with masks still occupying a place in our routines, do lipsticks still work?


The long and short of it is yes. It all comes down to the formula. Loads of cosmetic brands are going for long-wearing consistencies that boast a staying and hydrating power strong enough to take you through the day, even if you are sweating through commutes. So it's strong enough for a mask.

Summer this year is all about bright shades. We miss our makeup, so it no surprise that many are looking to flaunt bright pinks and fiery reds. However, nude seems to be a mainstay, and that's alright because it goes with everything. Ready your wallet and check out these ten lipstick colors you need this summer.
