MAC Puttin’ on the Spritz Casual Colour ($22.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “bright intense coral.” It’s a brightened, orange-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had buildable color payoff whether patted onto cheeks or applied to lips that could be blended out for sheer color or layered for true-to-pan coverage. I would highly recommend applying this with a lip brush if you want to use it as a lip color, as you’ll get better coverage, evenness, and it will be less drying (but regardless, it is always somewhat drying worn as a lip product–it’s uncomfortable for me after an hour and a half of wear–and lasts two and a half hours). As a blusher, a stippling or duo fiber brush works just fine, but a little goes a long way! It wears for seven hours on the cheeks. Tom Ford Beauty James (LE, $32.00) is similar.
