While I’m personally not that keen on a matte lip it does make perfect sense when you surround it with shimmer. That sums up the summer collection from Laura Mercier: vibrant velvets and sheer skin gleam. The Velour Matte Lipsticks are really the bright stars of what is a very minimal offering for summer. The shades are Havana, Amor and Chicas (in that order).
I don’t know how exciting liquid illuminators are any more but these are good examples should you be the last person in the world who doesn’t have one! You really need to shake them up well, but the formula is the right amount of fluid so that you can really wash them onto your skin with a brush. They diffuse beautifully and you could easily add a shot to body moisturiser to get a skin glow too. The shades are Seduction and Addiction.
I do love the vibrancy of the lip shades – everything about them says heat and sunshine. In the swatch, it’s Havana, Amor and Chicas (£22) followed by Addiction and Seduction (£29) all at SpaceNK HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
There are also two matte powder bronzers that I don’t have.
