Cray for coral!

Some people go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. I go crazy for coral…lips, which I will totally wear any time of year, but fiendishly in summer.

This time of year I wear coral lips. A lot. Practically every other day! I mean, coral as a color in summer? That never goes out of style.


And when it comes to coral lips and permanent colors, here are seven of my faves… ๐Ÿ™‚

1. MAC Amplified Lipstick in Vegas Volt

Vegas Volt. Something must be powering all those slot machines and lights. Maybe it’s Vegas Volt. It’s the coral I wear when I feel like kicking doors down in my four-inch heels.

Intense, opaque and potent enough to send a lightning bolt of pigment straight to your soul. It’s $16 and available now at MAC counters, stores and online.

2. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak

Flamingoes. Creamy coral pink Streak reminds me of flamingoes. ๐Ÿ™‚ This fresh, summery coral kicks so much @ss when worn with dewy skin, teal or gold liner, and mountains of mascara. It’s $22 and available now online and at Urban Decay counters, Ulta, Sephora and select Macy’s stores.

3. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Favorite 43

Smooth, velvety La Favorite is one of my favorite lip products by Chanel because it kicks up my elegance factor and makes me feel more ladylike. I reach for it when I have things like daytime family events to go to or work meetings. It’s $36 and available now online and at Chanel counters and stores.

4. Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Long-Wear Lip Color in 152

Also one of my go-to coral lippies for family functions and events for work, Insaisissable has what is probably one of the hardest names in the world to spell, LOL!

It’s a warm reddish coral with a satin finish, and it looks particularly pretty when paired with eyes wearing golden tan and/or beige. It’s $36 and available now at Chanel counters and stores.

5. Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipstick in 39

This satiny, orangey coral is pure extract of fun because it’s BRIGHT. I like wearing it with bold cat eye liner, but I think it also plays well with taupe-ish purples. It’s $20 and available now at Make Up For Ever counters and stores.

6. Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Coral Fire

Creamy? Yup.

Moisturizing? Uh-huh.

Hot enough to ignite a (hot but perfectly harmless) coral fire in your belly? YAAAS.

Reddish Coral Fire feels plush on my lips, and its summery, shiny finish disco dances with bronzes, golds and warm reddish browns on lids. Warning: may cause Saturday night fever seven days a week.

In other words, it’s hawt! It’s also $22 and available now online and at Too Faced counters, Sephora and Ulta.

7. Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Muse

First time I wore Muse I may or may not have hyperventilated a little…

OK, a lot.

You can’t blame a girl for feeling giddy over this much shiny pigment. It’s $30 and available now online and at Hourglass counters, SpaceNK stores and Sephora.

Now, even though this was supposed to be a list of seven items, I wouldn’t have been able to sleep tonight if I didn’t give a special shout-out to satiny bright coral NARS Lodhi, because it’s my every-single-summer jam.

I wear one down to the nub every year. It’s $26 and available now online and at NARS counters and stores.

What’s your current favorite coral lipstick, babe? Inquiring coral-and-cat-loving minds want to know!

    Well dayum! Vegas Volt on you looks amazing. Strange enough, I don’t own a single coral lippie. Note to self: fix that situation & get on that ish, girl! I’ve been so busy building a coral blush stash that coral lips never crossed my mind. Seeing as how I don’t own a lippie by NARS, Hourglass, or Chanel, I’m intrigued by the lippies you’re rocking. Who knows? Maybe I’ll go play with Vegas Volt at the MAC counter to see if I can set hearts aflame

  8. Sunny says:

    Hey Karen, you’re a girl after my own heart! I literally haven’t put anything other than coral on my lips since May! I own La Favorite and the Muse liner/gloss. They’re preeeeetty ๐Ÿ™‚ For the moment I am ALL about Chanel Insoumise Rouge Coco Shine. Somehow it has the right color payoff, texture, and color. Ahhhh ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I looove coral lipsticks. I wear them almost every day in the summer. My favorite, no doubt, is MAC Vegas Volt, although I love MAC Crosswires too. But I always get complements wearing Vegas Volt.

    Love Vegas Volt! One of my favs too. I always get compliments every time I wear it.

  18. Pamela says:

    Nothing like coral on golden skin in the summertime! You look great n all of them, Karen. May I add Revlon Hot Coral, Maybelline Coral Craving, these from MAC: Eager, hot tahiti, Hibiscus, Toxic Tale, Cockney. And many, many more that are overpopulating my makeup case…

  19. Renee says:

    I love Vegas Volt! But my true favorite has to be Mac Costa Chic. I also like Mac Coral Bliss, Mac Ravishing, and Nars Niagra and oh, don’t get me started on the coral blushes that complement…
    Love, love the Hourglass Muse on you. I don’t own that, and I think that is something that will have to be remedied lol

  20. Sara says:

    I bought streak last summer and still love it! One of my all time favorites. And you are looking more gorgeous than ever these days!

  21. RM says:

    I recently discovered Rimmel Moisture Renewal in Coral Garden and I love it. Other faves are MAC Crosswires, Chanel Remarkable and Chanel Satin.

  22. Gloria says:

    Oh! Both Mac and Make up for ever look so good on you! How do you compare them on the pigment and comfortable wear?

  23. Kim says:

    Some very pretty colors in that bunch. Btw, your brows look particularly striking and awesome in the first 2 pics. ๐Ÿ™‚
