Today I have this post of "corals" because coral is a color that never fails during summer months and I really love it! I don't really follow trends and I don't care if it's is in or out, in my book it's always in! :) Plus I think coral looks good on any skin, eye or hair color. Don't let some of product names below fool you, I think most companies lack creativity when it comes to naming products...So, here we go!
MAC Lipstick in Vegas Volt
I admit, it is a bit of a shocking color but don't be scared of it, it's very buildable. You can adjust how much color you want easily. If you want a coral-ish color but don't want it in full effect, you can always dab a bit of concealer (or MAC's Myth l/s if you have it) over or under it to tone it down a little.
RIMMEL Lipstick in Nostalgia
As you can see in the swatches below Nostalgia is more pink/coral and Vegas Volt is more orange/coral. I wear this lipstick by itself because it's just gorgeous and doesn't need anything else.
NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Plaza Pink
Color of this creme stick is debatable. I'm sure manysee it as pink (and there's nothing wrong with that) but to me it's coral with a hint of pink :) By applying Pink Plaza under Candid Coral you will get a more true coral color, pretty close to Pink Plaza's container color. (I'm actually holding Plaza Pink in my hand on the swatch picture below)
MAC Paintpot in Coral Crepe
Can be worn over, under or next to many different eye shadows, or just by itself. Call me obsessed because that's what I am when it comes to this. I seriously want to use this everyday. :) I should have bought a back up of it!
Revlon Super Lusturous Lipgloss in Coral Reef
Many people are praising this lip gloss lately and I don't blame them. Revlon did it again! If you want exaggerated coral lips, then use this over Vegas Volt. If you prefer a more toned down color, use it over Myth, concealer or Revlon's Soft Nude (this is my fave combo). You can always use it by itself and still achieve a beautiful color, it has quite the pigmentation.
MAC Eyeshadow in Paradisco
Almost identical to Coral Crepe, just that this is in eyeshadow form. Looks beautiful paired with earthy toned eyeshadows.
Revlon Nailpolishes in Make Mine Mango, Electric Pink & Tropical Temptations
3 different shades of coral. I am quite impressed with the ease of application and staying power of Revlon nail polishes. They are definitely worth the $.
YSL Rouge Volupte #13 Peach PassionThis is sort of like the Tropical Temptation nail polish (above right) in lipstick form. Smooth application and lots of pigmentation. Definitely a summer favorite :)
Coralista is one of my favorite blushes of all time. It's a very versatile and girly-chic color that looks good on many skin tones. It looks beautiful on it's own but if you want a more vibrant color, try it over NYC's Pink Plaza blush stick (as a base). Not only will it create a pop of color, but it will also help Coralista last much longer on your skin.
