July 29 is National Lipstick Day and we're celebrating by sharing our favorite summer colors with you! A bright, fun lip is at the top of our makeup routine. A bold color instantly glams up any look and takes no more than 30 seconds to apply. They also don't have to cost an arm and a leg and some of our favorites are drugstore go-to's. 

For a pop of pink, pick up the Vivids Lipcolor from Maybelline in Fuchsia Flash. Don't let the word fuchsia scare you as this shade is the perfect way to dress up even the most basic tee and can be worn day or night.

If classic red is more your thing, we can't get enough of Nars' Matte Lip Pencils. A little pricier, you definitely get your money's worth as this color wears well without smudging. Even better, it is easy to take off with a gentle makeup remover. When the pencil dulls, just sharpen it for your next night out. 

Always ahead of the trends and willing to break a few style rules? Grab M.A.C.'s All About Orange Lipstick for a departure from the season's pink and reds. Spotted on runways, editorials, and on your favorite bloggers, orange is a fresh take on the season's bold lip.
