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… 🙂
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. 🙂 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
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…
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!
