A Summer of Love | An Ode to Coral Lipsticks & Lipglosses

We’re moving through summer quickly (and I often forget the seasons, as there’s already been a few holiday launches…), and I haven’t touched on my favorite coral products… and it’s summer… the perfect excuse time to talk about all things coral!

I love this round-up! This was the year I really started to understand coral and orange as lip colours and I am in love! There’s so many great shades to try here 🤩

Can you believe that the only one I have is UD Tryst? However, I’ve got at least half the glosses on one heckava long WL! Might get Hourglass Solar during the sale, since it is my favorite out them all.

I’m totally in love with Coral lipsticks! About an half of my considerably sized lipsticks collection Is composer by Coral shades… And I wear coral all the year, not only Summer!!
My favourite shades are Mac morange (on me Is coral, not pure Orange), Mac mangrove, Mac Vegas volt and Urban Decay vice lipstick tryst!

Coral is great all year long! I’m shocked that UD Hot Love is the only one on this last that I have. They’re all so beautiful! Several are on my wish list, though. Plus…I added a few just now. lol My very favorites are LE or discontinued, though: MAC La Vie En Rouge, Toxic Tale, Make Me Gorgeous, and Saucy Little Darling (I seem to love MAC corals!), NARS Audacious in Kelly, and Too Faced Shimmering Spice Spice Baby. Permanent shade loves are ColourPop Flower SZN and Superbloom, and MAC Crosswires, Vegas Volt, and Fusion Pink.

Coral really is an amazing color to look at, but it looks so fake and weird on me (this coming from someone who wears navy blue).

Coral looks fake and weird on me, too. The only one I like on myself is MAC See Sheer. I have MAC Crosswires, but I have to blot it down to wear it.

I love coral too, but funny enough neither of my two go-tos are here: they’re YSL Vinyl Cream 403 and Girogio Armani Lip Magnet 503 (Glow)
