The Hottest Lip Colors To Rock This Summer

Say goodbye to the softer pinks of spring and say hello to the bright reds of summer! Bold colors are “in” this summer, and fluorescent, full lips are all the craze in Korea! Check out our list of our favorite colors this season below!

Hot Pink

Gone are the subtle pinks of spring – fiery, hot pink has taken the stage.

If you’re looking for some bright pinky lip colors, Peripera is always a crowd favorite. We recommend Peripera’s Ink the Airy Velvet in Pretty Orange Pink! It feels matte and it looks satiny, but with its mousse-like texture, this lip product is super moisturizing. It also leaves behind a pretty pink stain as it wears over the day!


Coral has always been a favorite throughout the years in Korea, and its reign will not be ending soon!

For this shade, Peripera is the go-to-brand (like Peripera’s Ink The Airy Velvet in Apricot Coral), but brands like Etude House and BBIA will also carry multiple shades of coral. And of course, we can’t forget the famous Yves Saint Laurent Rosy Coral lipstick (made famous by the fabulous Jun Ji Hyun).

This lipstick glides right onto your lips, and provides a satiny and iridescent finish that’s perfect for any occasion!

Another beautiful coral lip product we recommend is Innisfree’s Color Glow Lipstick in Daisy Coral! A balmy lip-product, it smoothes out dry patches and is beloved by people with chapped lips.

Glossy Orange

Maybe the hot pink is a bit too much for you, and coral is a tad hard to pull off, but you still want a bright lip color. How about a glossier orange? Not as burdensome as a bright pink, but still popping, orange might just be your color!

For a recent press conference for her new drama, “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim,” Park Min Young wore Shisedo’s Rouge Rouge lipstick in the color OR417. This lipstick has a creamy texture but also has a slight sheen to it. The color is super pigmented, so only a couple of swipes will have you rocking a pretty orange pout!

Classic Tomato Red

The fluorescent look is the “it” lip look right now! Red lip colors with tomato or coral undertones is perfect for getting this look.

3CE Velvet Lip Tints is your go-to for all your red lipstick needs. With its mousse-like consistency, these lip tints are best for dry summer days.

Another crowd favorite, MAC lipsticks in Ruby Woo and Relentlessly Red are also perfect for creating that classy red lip! These two lipsticks are part of MAC’s Retro Matte line, and the vivid color dries matte on your lips.
