I haven’t worn a blush that’s not Chanel Presage for about two weeks now so that’s my pick! Lipstick Queen Coral Sinner has been getting some love too, but I’m not in love with the formula.

YSL’s Rouge Volupte Shine in Incandescent Coral (12) is a recent discovery. I’m not a fan of the smell/taste of YSL’s lip products (although I know many are) but this colour is really lovely, plus the light but moisturizing formula is a boon to my always dry lips.

Oh wow are you prepared for a 40-minute lecture? LOL

This summer I’ve been reaching for Chanel Presage Le Blush Creme de Chanel, NARS Deep Throat (often layered on top of Presage), Tom Ford Love Lust, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush #300 (OK this might be an orange but still), Chanel Insoumise Rouge Coco Shine, Estee Lauder Defiant Coral, Guerlain Nahema… Coral is an old obsession of mine, but a different thing this summer is I’ve been more into the orange-leaning ones than the pink-leaning ones. It might have something to do with my recent discovery of warm reddish brown eyeshadows and bronzers ๐Ÿ˜‰

I actually found a coral lip crayon from Wet N Wild that I really like. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a total impulse purchase.

Is it Coral of the Story balm stain? Because I keep noticing that one at the drugstore and thinking about buying it.

I love Sleek’s Chantilly (in the Blush by 3 palette Lace) and the one on the right in the bottom row of the e.l.f. Blush palette in Light but I will be checking out some higher-end options too ๐Ÿ™‚ Also I haven’t got a coral lip colour of any kind, what a shame!

MAC Vegas volt or Costa chic are some of my favourite coral lipsticks for summer! … i’ve been wanting NARS Juliette but i have so many lipsticks opened that i don’t know yet haha xx

Lipstick: NARS Niagara, NARS Grace, Dior Cruise (summer of 2014 collection, but it’s so lovely!), Revlon Hot Coral (if you can get past the waxy smell, the shade is wonderful)

Lip gloss: Dior Diablotine

Blush: Tarte Tipsy (I may be the only person who actually likes Tarte blushes, but hey), Colourpop Jelly Fish

I love Tarte blushes! I got the blush palette they had for their holiday collection. Super useful as it has a bunch of varied shades. And I love how long lasting they are (and how long the actual blushes last themselves as they’re so pigmented you don’t have to apply one so you get a lot of bang for you buck)

Yes! True Love blush by Tarte got especially terrible reviews, but it’s one of my all time favorites! Ah, well.

My Tipsy shattered recently after one too many falls to the tile floor, so now it has a special little place of honor on my counter (to avoid moving it into and out of my makeup storage). ๐Ÿ™‚

I love Tarte blushes, but I haven’t bought any since they started adding talc. I don’t know if I’d love the new formula or not.

this is my post. i m a coral ls whore. fav coral ls i think is uhhh, mac impassioned, i think. not sure. i m not big on other coral makeup things.

Coral is just not a natural looking colour for my cheeks but, having said that, Coral Punch, which was in a LE palette from Sephora and really isn’t coral at all, is probably my favourite “coral” for summer.

Oh yes that’s a question for me!
For lips: Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Guava (leans pink), Lancome Shine Lover in Corail Lover (red coral), YSL Glossy Stain Pop Water in Eau de Corail (peachy), Dior Fluid Stick in Wonderland (crazy bright), Lancome Lip Lover in Orange Manege (bright too but translucent).
For cheeks: Bobbi Brown Clementine blush (peachy), the new Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Lily (neon pink coral), Lancome Blush Subtil Creme in Corail Alize (reddish).

I don’t really care for coral, but the closest thing I still own is NARS Multiple in Mustique, which really just provides a nice pinky-gold glow on me.

I’m in the process of purging my lipstick stash, and I can’t believe how many coral-like shades I’ve tried over the years! It simply doesn’t work for me, but apparently I kept trying for some reason. Fortunately, most came in sets, but I don’t know why I kept them…

Hey, you are not alone! The most “coral” lipstick I own is MAC Impassioned. Coral is not a great shade for me either. I wonder if we’re twins!

If you look good in coral and don’t own Chanel’s presage cream blush, drop everything and order or right now: it is divine, divine, divine! Lancome’s L’Absolue Rouge in 349 topped with Lancome’s Lip Lover gloss in 316 are equally stunning. I put this blush and lip combo with Tom Ford’s cream shadow in Pink Haze on my eyes and I’m the coral goddess! (I have this look on today)

Pamela, I hope you come back to this post and see my reply. I was mistaken about the coral Chanel cheek color I love: it is Chamade, not presage. You’re in luck, it’s still available! I never buy back ups but I am considering buying a second Chamade. If I ever had to live without it, my heart would break! (Christine gave it an A+ too)

I can’t pull off a coral lipstick to save my life!
My favourite blushes are Nars Daydream, which is more pink than coral on me, Clinique Coral Pop, and TT Coral Cameo cream blush.
Lately I’ve been reaching for my Mac Daydreaming eyeshadow. I’m not a huge fan of it on its own but I’ve been layering it over a medium brown cream eyeshadow and I like the tanned coral colour that it makes.

Bite Peche is my go-to lippie, Milani Coral Cove and NARS Orgasm are stand-bys for blushes, though I do want the new(ish) Hourglass blush.

I have -a lot-! I love MAC’s Vegas Volt amplified lipstick and Ripe for Love blush, Benefit’s Box o’ Powder in Coralista, Becca’s Damselfly, Bite Beauty MLC in Sucrรฉ, Burberry lipstick in Primrose Hill Pink, Makeup Geek Romance & Bliss blush, MUFE #410 cream blush, Clinique Peach Pop blush, Chanel Intonation cream blush… I’m sure I could go on!!

I look forward to what people say here, since I am a coral fiend! For blushes, I’ve been wearing a lot of MAC Hipness, Dior Coral Sunset and Tom Ford Love Lust. For lips, I’ve been liking NARS Nebulous lip gloss (which looks orange in the tube but turns coral on my lips), Dior Tropiques fluid stick and Chanel Intrรฉpide Rouge Coco Shine, which I’ve been wearing a LOT.

Cheeks: Nyx Pinched blush ( still love this, and always will ), ColourPop Quarters topped with Highly Waisted makes for a really pretty, glowy coral cheek!
Lipstick: MAC: 1. La Vie En Rouge ( All-Time favorite! ), 2. Vegas Volt and 3. Make Me Gorgeous lipsticks.
Lipgloss: Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz lip gloss and Nars Orgasm lipgloss.
Eyes: UD Fireball Eyeshadow if you want a coral themed eyeshadow!

Blush: Armani Cheek Fabric in Dolci, Tom Ford Love Lust, Clinique Peach Pop, Hourglass Dim Infusion
Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Insoumise, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Corail In Touch, UD Naked gloss in Streak, Dior gloss in Delice and Diablotine, Dior Lip Glow Coral

Lipstick: MACโ€™s Crosswires
Blush: Charlotte Tilbury X Norman Parkinson Colour of Youth
Nails: Essieโ€™s Cute As A Button

I’m a sucker for a good coral blush. I’m currently loving theBalm’s Hot Momma, Model Co.’s Peach Bellini and Tarte’s Tipsy.

My favorites this year have been:

Lipsticks: UD Sheer Revoultion Sheer Streak, MAC La Vie En Rouge, MAC Toxic Tale, e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Orange Dream, e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color in Coral, Nyx High Voltage Lipstick in Beam, and The Lip Bar lipstick in Kiss Me.

Blush: MUFE HD Cream Blush in 410 (Coral), Milani Rose Blush in Coral Cove, Sleek Blush in Life’s a Peach, ColourPop Jellyfish, The Balm Instain in Toile, UD Afterglow Blush, and UD Afterglow Blush in Quiver (looks coral-red on me).

Eye shadow: ColourPop Super Shock in Animal and Erotic, and Tropics and Sao Conrado from Sleek’s i-Divine Palette in Rio, Rio. (I wish it were easier to find coral eyeshadows; most of my collection is orange or peach instead.)

Ok, I always for get to say why. I don’t want to write a book, so I’ll group. The lipsticks are (mostly) bright and pigmented, and don’t make my teeth look yellow. Most of them lean red because I like them best and feel they are most flattering on me, too. The blushes are bright and pigmented, and have staying power on my oily skin. I did not include any peach shades, though Sleek’s Life a Peach is the closest. UD Quiver is the closest to red.

Exceptions: UD Sheer Streak: a pretty pink-coral for when I want a more subdued lip. Nyx High Voltage in Beam: A very bright, but light orangey-pink coral that I don’t wear a lot, but when I need it, it looks great and is affordable. e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color in Coral: a very natural, matte lip that gives a hint of coral. I didn’t have anything like it in my stash, and it’s extremely comfortable to wear. (I really love all the Studio Matte Colors, actually.)

The eyeshadows: These are shades I own that I consider coral, and not orange, red, or peach. These are pigmented and long-lasting.

Clinique Peach Pop, Mac Fleur Power, Tarte Captivating, Too Faced Melted Coral, Mac Ever Hip, Coral Bliss, Eager (Discontinued), Vegas Volt , Maybelline Shocking Coral, Nars Lodhi Satin Lip pencil and Mac Richer Lusher Creme Sheen Glass

Most of these aren’t pure corals, but they’re all definitely coral-based shades!

Eyeshadow: Colour Pop Animal (only recently realized it’s not supposed to be used on eyes, but I’ve already been using it for months and it hasn’t done me any harm)

Lip products: Colour Pop Brunch (haven’t worn it in a while since the formula was almost too creamy on me, but I’m going to try again since I love the color), Sephora Luster Matte Lip Color (the VIB Rouge shade I believe), MAC Relentlessly Red*

Nails: Essie Sunset Sneaks

*I bought two other coral-based lipsticks this week but I haven’t had time to really trial one, and the other hasn’t arrived yet

Too many fav’s but off the top of my head… MAC vegas volt, Tarte timeless (LE), NARS lodhi, Bobbi Brown Sweet Nectar, Estee Lauder Defiant Coral

Lips: I have lots of corals but my favorites are all MAC. Mac Crosswires, MAC Vegas Volt and MAC See Sheer.
Blushes: Milani Mai Tai (sadly dc), The Balm Hot Mama, MAC Ripe for Love.
