Crushing on Coral

Ever since early spring I have been searching for the perfect Coral lip color. I had seen it in many runway and editorial spreads and I knew I needed something like it for Summer. As someone who mostly wears pinks, this was totally out of my comfort zone. It was going to take some major searching and trying before I found the perfect match!

My friend Maria who works for Laura Mercier introduced me to their Creme Lip Colour in Tangerine and it is PERFECT! I really love their lipsticks, they are super moisturizing and the color really lasts. This is a very vibrant color, so to lighten it I put more of a nude gloss over the top just to tone it down a bit. Overall, it was JUST what I was looking for.

And if you are more of a gloss girl, I also discovered Revlon's Super Lustrous lipgloss in Coral Reef. It's a really pretty sheer coral, which I think would look great on just about anyone. And at $6.99, if you hate it, you can give it to your best friend :)

anyone else loving this shade? Any other great suggestions?


  1. I have a coral that I got at Halls and I love the color (it might be Armani??) but it bleeds, bleeds, bleeds and then all of a sudden it looks like I am wearing just coral liner. So annoying especially considering it was not cheap.

  2. I use Nars Pop Life velvet matte lip pencil, layered with Nars Orgasm gloss. I also like Revlon Creme lipstick #710-Orange Flip. I know we are talking coral here, but two of my all time favorite, universally flattering lip colors are by Nars. Dolce Vita and Mitzi are the BEST!
