In one of the hottest summers to date, it is no surprise that ‘hot girl summer’ has blown up the Internet. She’s everywhere, she’s bold and usually, she is wearing great lipstick. Never going out of style, lipstick’s legacy lies in its ability to adapt – between endless shades and textures, lipstick never fails to make an outfit. The only drawback of this is the infinite options to choose from… Luckily for you, at MILLE, we have selected our favourite lipsticks to make your hot girl summer complete.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick
A long-standing favourite enjoyed by many, this range comes in a range of colours tailored for all skin shades, with the most popular lipstick being ‘Penelope Pink’. The overall texture is creamy due to its hydrating formula, which protects against dry lips, along with durable rich pigments that act similarly to tints. The formula is also very easy to layer, so if you want your lips to look fuller, you can use a neutral shade all over then concentrate on the center of your lips with a lighter shade.

NARS Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer
Containing Vitamin E to impart a moisturising feel, you can’t go wrong with one of NARS highest selling products. The product is a lipgloss-lipstick hybrid as it uses a lipstick formula, but is available in 90s-esque gloss colours for high impact. The two-sided applicator creates an amplified finish, with ten ultra-saturated shades to choose from. This one is a good option if you’re hesitant about trying a full-on liquid lipstick with a matte finish. At MILLE our favourite shade is ‘Baden Baden’.

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick
An award-winning ultra-slim lipstick that’s perfect for those who prefer a stronger matte finish without the heaviness. This high-octane pigment is married unexpectedly with universal shades to complement darker skin tones. The lipstick, as with the whole of Rihanna’s range, is completely animal-cruelty free.
