Tried with no success to intragoogle the posts in which you encourage readers to put in their favorite….say, taupe eyeshadow. Products move up and down the lists, as people nominate their favorites. They can be great references, and I can never find them. The only corals I can wear are on the orange/copper end. The pink corals are so wrong.

I LOVE THIS POST! thanks Christine! Can you do more of these fave blushes and lipsticks by shade posts??? I’d love to see them in pinks, berries, etc in the future!!!

This most informative piece has come at the right time for me as I am starting to look for a new peachy coral blush. I will investigate quite a few of them as I think I need to see them in person.
Clinique’s Melon Pop, Palm Springs, and a few of the MAC ones interest me.
Thank you Christine for taking the time to present this beautiful array of blushes.

I don’t think I own a single one of these since coral blush looks totally unnatural on me (well, I have Hot Mama but it came in a palette I bought) but that Dior Hologram looks fabulous and like a shade I’d love.
