There’s no better time than summer to play around with vibrant lipstick hues. And if you ask us, there’s no better source of color inspiration than the juiciest warm weather fruits around. From apricots and mangos to lychees and blackberries, their playful colors could serve as the palette for the rest of this season’s most leisurely and next-level looks.
So which fruity lipstick shade should YOU be wearing to your next occasion? Scroll down for the answer!
Apricot for a Weekend Picnic Brunch
This chic shade goes hand-in-hand with lounging in the grass and soaking up the sun on your off-duty days. Plus, it may just make you want to BYO your own apricot delights to the outdoor potluck! (Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren, $5)
Mango for a Gossip Sesh With the Girls
Play catch up with your crew in this high-voltage pink that reminds us of the color of a mango’s skin. Just hope that the chatter at the cocktail table will be as juicy as your badass lip shade! (Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in Vivid Rose, $8).
Lychee for a Hot First Date
The color of this dusty Lychee pink is insanely gorgeous, plus its subtle shimmer and satin feel make it the perfect shade for a first date. But what’s even better? The lipstick’s totally ’90s name. (Truth: It’s what sealed the deal to buy it, ’cause we are NUTS for anything and everything ’90s-inspired!). (Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Saved By the Bell, $7)
Blackberry for a Concert Night Out
Your makeup can rock out just as much as you’ll be at that must-see show, so amp up your usual look with a Blackberry purple lip that’s totally Beyoncé-approved. This shade is a serious chameleon in the world of lipstick — it looks different and beautiful on every single person I’ve seen it on, so DO take this bold beauty risk! (Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balm in Shameless, $10)
