Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft coral.” It’s a shiny, soft coral with strong peach/orange coloring. On my lips, which have some natural pinkness but are not overly red or pigmented, it enhances the natural pinkness and adds warmth, but it looks very, very natural–if you compare bare lips to the swatch photo, you’ll see a definite difference, but from afar, you wouldn’t go, “Oh, she’s wearing color!” Bobbi Brown Pink Seashell is paler. MAC Razzledazzler is more pigmented.

Guerlain Ballade (600) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Ballade (600) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm-toned, rosy coral with a frosted finish. Applied, it seems to take on a rosier appearance (less coral) due to the natural pink tones in my lip color. Chanel Orchidee is redder. Revlon Pink Truffle is comparable in color but has a glossier, less frosted finish. Thierry Mugler Feeling is brighter. NARS Mayflower has less frost and is a touch redder. Rimmel Latino is less warm-toned.
