Team Zoe’s Favorite Summer Lipsticks

Summertime beauty is one of our favorite things—from experimenting with fun hairstyles to bold makeup colors, it’s the time to be adventurous with your glam routine. Though we often channel our efforts into bronzing our way to a perpetual tawny glow, we also love a great lip color in a fun summer hue. From pinky nudes to punchy oranges, these are the shades Team Zoe can’t live without.

"I wear a natural-looking, peachy pink lipstick on a daily basis, but when I want to mix it up I go for a bold orange hue—one with a hint of red in it looks classic with a modern touch." -Stephanie Montes, Beauty Editor

"I love this nude shade from Make Up For Ever because it has a pretty pink tint and doesn't look too muddy or brown. It's great for summer days when I want to keep my look more natural. It's also really moisturizing so my lips stay nice and hydrated." -Andrea Sexton Chinalai, Digital Sales Director

"I love pink Chanel lipstick. It's possible I have every shade they make. It has a beautiful, rich pigment and it's such a bright, fun color for summer. Leave it to Chanel to nail the perfect pout." -Sari Anne Tuschman, Editor-At-Large

"I just bought this lipstick, and I'm obsessed with it. It has the right amount of pigment, is just matte enough and looks great with a tan. It's a softer (but equally pretty) take on coral, if bright lipstick isn't your thing." -Megan Gustashaw, Editorial Director

"The pigment of this matte, poppy stain is so intense you can't see even a hint of my natural lip color, and it stays put for hours. It's basically really nice clown makeup." -Nicky Deam, Fashion Director

"I love this Charlotte Tilbury lip color for summer because it adds the perfect pop of pink and doubles as a cheek color, making my summer beauty routine easy and effortless." -Nicole Cutright, E-Commerce Manager

"My favorite summer shade is Geraldine from NARS. I am obsessed with the red-orange hue and haven't taken it off all summer. Given that I am currently living in NYC, I usually throw it on to brighten up my all-black outfit, or with a navy striped T-shirt and ripped jeans to look a little more Parisian (or attempt to)." -Victoria Gordon, Account Manager

"Tarte's lipstick in Fearless is super moisturizing and feels great on—I always find myself reaching for it in my bag. It looks gorgeous alone or on top of your favorite lipstick to add some shimmer for day or night." -Pamela Glassman, Director of Business Development

"I love RMS lip2cheek in Demure. It's a soft pink rose with a hint of mauve that provides just enough color to accentuate your natural lip shade. I love that you can also apply to your cheeks. And it's 100% organic, which is a huge plus for me." -Mel Chalian, Executive Assistant

"I love Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. It's the perfect red-orange shade to wear with bronzed summer skin and just a touch of mascara." -Marisa Runyon, Director of TV and Digital Video Production

"Lately the only color I've been reaching for is Le Marc in J'Adore. It's an incredible '70s-meets-'90s warm mocha hue that's made for breezy summer dresses and sun-kissed skin." -Jaclyn Decell, Community Manager

"Lipstick feels too heavy for me—instead, I opt for tinted lip gloss if I want some extra color. Broad Spectrum SPF 15 No Lipgloss Lipgloss by Perricone MD is my current favorite." -Samantha Sifantus, Lead Developer
