Spice up your pout this summer and retire that dark plum lip! Instead, go bolder and hotter with a bright poppy lip color—these hues will heat up your look in no time and draw some much wanted attention to that pout of yours…

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge #16 Fuschia

If you plan on hitting the beach and want a gleaming finish that won’t smudge or budge, then this is the gloss for you. This hot pink lip gloss comes with a clear finish for a shiny look that stays pool-proof all day! Its blue undertones look great on every skin tone, plus it will make your teeth look whiter! ($24,

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Sweet Nectar

Sometimes an orange lip is all you need to perk up. This matte lipstick has a smooth, satin finish that blends into lips for a more subtle stain. By the way, super pigmented oranges look best on those with olive or golden skin tones, otherwise you risk looking washed out. ($5.49,

Covergirl Lipperfection Jumbo Gloss Balm #2338

Dress up your daytime makeup with a sheer, pink balm that delivers a punch of color! Just a quick dab before you head out the door adds the finishing touch to your look. If you want to go for that super glossy/non-sticky finish, layer on top of another lipstick. This buildable color is perfect on any skintone, but looks especially flattering on fair or ivory skin. ($5.59,

Aqualillies for Tarte Lipstick in Timeless

This satin, coral lipstick is guaranteed to become your go-to shade for summer! One coat leaves a super-pigmented, silky finish on your lips that lasts all day. Plus, the undertone is a perfect balance of cool and warm that makes fair skin look tan and glowing—even if you’re hiding under the umbrella. ($26,

Too Faced Lipstick in Fuchsia Shock

A glossy balm that won’t smudge or run, this lipstick is the perfect color for day or night. Subtle enough to wear with a bold eye and smooth enough to use as a daily balm—don’t ever be caught without it! ($21,

Dior Addict Lipstick in Passionnee

Does your skin naturally have pink undertones? This lipstick will be your ultimate summer fave! Just blot on your lips for a little bit of color to enhance your natural pout and moisturize your lips. ($31,

Chanel Rouge Allure in Excentrique

If you want to rock an orange lip, go for it with the best. This formula won’t run, so kiss your liner buh-bye. Best on a bronzed skin tone, this pout is not for the faint-of-heart. ($34,
