5 Great Coral Lipsticks

Reader Angela thought to be cruel to me by suggesting coral lipsticks–because picking a favorite coral is like picking your favorite child! I will say that the closest to all-time favorite coral would be Guerlain Gems, which was limited edition and no longer available, but the below five are all near and dear to my heart!  Want more corals?  Check out our swatch gallery of coral lipsticks.

Cle de Peau #112 Eyeshadow

Cle de Peau #112 Eyeshadow ($45.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a pale, icy blue with a soft, frosted finish.  It applies really beautifully on the lid, because the pigmentation is decent and the texture very smooth.  The eyeshadow itself holds together incredibly well and doesn’t leave any fall out or powdery mess behind at all.

Cle de Peau Calliope (T4) Extra Rich Lipstick

my thoughts on the formula: The color applies opaque in a single pass with a smooth, even finish. Extra Rich Lipsticks are absolutely a luxury item; they are pure decadence. The texture is incredibly smooth and creamy without being slippery or heavy. It imparts a nice level of moisture on lips and never feels drying. The formula also de-emphasizes lip lines after about fifteen minutes of wear. I get between four and six hours of wear.

Cle de Peau #113 Extra Silky Lipstick

Cle de Peau #113 Extra Silky Lipstick ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a reddened brown berry with gold and ruby micro-shimmer in a semi-opaque color base.  It is a really nice shade during fall, because it is vampy enough to be deep and dark but not overpowering.  This should look amazing on cool-toned beauties!
