orange is the happiest colour.

What is it about summer? Suddenly colour is everywhere you turn. From clothing racks to the makeup counter...bright and bold is in. Honestly, this is my favourite thing about the summer season. Don't get me wrong. I love dark smokey eye looks, deep blush tones, and ultra glam lip colours. But summer is a time to embrace that extra pop! One of my favourite colours for this time of year has to be orange. It is fun, exciting, and manages to encompass the spirit of the season. Which is why I have been reaching for one lip product over and over again.

It is the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Miami Fever. As you can see from the picture above, this colour is all about vibrancy. It is bright, in your face, and totally orange. Everything about it says summer! Lately I have been wearing this with neutral eyes during the day - and a smokier look at night. Whether I am going to the movies or to enjoy date night....this lip product has been with me every step of the way. Yes, I am a little in love.

According to the Revlon website, the ColorStay Moisture Stain products drench your lips in "glossy wet colour" and "88% of women felt lips were instantly moisturized without stickiness." The claims? Totally true. I am not a fan of sticky lip glosses that I can feel on my lips throughout the day. Those drive me absolutely crazy. Which is why I am loving this so much. You get the look of a gloss, the pigmentation of a lipstick, and none of the drawbacks. Score!

The packaging of this product is simple and sleek. It has a curved applicator tip. That is something I love. It makes it so much easier to get the colour exactly where you want it. And speaking of just can't beat that gorgeous orange shade. Ready to see it in action? This is a makeup look I put together using Miami Fever.

There is a reason I love summer so much. Fun fashion, bold makeup, and amazing weather. Yes please! This lip product is one of my current favourites. It instantly adds that something special to any outfit or makeup look. In my opinion? Orange is always a good idea. Especially this season.

What do you think of this colour? Is there a lipstick product you are loving lately?
