The Coral Lip

coral lips, coral lipstick, coral lip color, coral lipstick suggestions

Coral lips have been trending for a while now, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect shade. I remember picking out my first red lipstick and feeling rather apprehensive, but eventually I came around and I now have a better idea of what suits me. I’d like to branch out from red and I think that coral is a great choice for summer. I love how vibrant coral lips look on other people, but of course you have to pick the shade that suits you best. I think I’m looking for something that leans toward the red spectrum and definitely something deeper in color, rather than lighter. I need your help- let me know if you can think of any coral lip colors that might suit me!

    • Let me know how it goes if you give it a try!

  • I have been on a coral lip quest of my own. I got two from avon, one that is more orange and one that is more red. While the orange is more what I was looking for, the red is ultimately more flattering. I also tried on that is more pink, but I don’t think it looks even the slightest bit coral at all.

    • I forgot about Avon! My mom used to order their stuff all the time. I think what I’m looking for is more of a hot coral (so reddish orange, with a hint of pink).

    I’m a huge fan of the coral and orange lip. I’m actually wearing my favorite orange lipstick today from YSL Le Orange. Another favorite coral color is from Stila the stay all day liquid lipstick in Carina. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear that shade.


    • Thank you for the suggestions! I’m adding both to my list to take a look at next time I’m in Sephora.

  • Love me some coral lips! I found a great shade with Elizabeth Arden. But if you’re looking for something on the redder side that Buxom color looks great.

    Can’t wait to see ya wear it :)

    • What’s the Elizabeth Arden one called? I need to make a trip to Sephora to check out these suggestions :)

  • Love all of these coral colored options! I would absolutely wear a coral lip. I’m searching for the perfect shade of coral and a reddish orange.

    • That’s pretty much what I’m looking for too. Let me know if you find something great!

  • I would definitely be up for trying a coral lip!

    • Yay! It’s such a fun color, isn’t it? :)

  • Oh my gosh! You have nooo idea how much I want to rock a coral lip, but I feel that my skin tone will not cooperate…I need to head down to Sephora and get some help with finding the proper shade!

    • That’s my plan too- head to Sephora and have them help me out!

  • Love a good coral lip! Esp during the summer months when my skin is tan :)

    • Nice! I bet this color really suits you :)

  • I am obsessed with coral lips! I have that revlon balm and I love it, it’s so creamy which is perfect and the shade is very pretty.

    • I love those Revlon Matte Balms. I have color Standout, but I want to try this one and see if it suits me!

    Yes! I tend to like the lighter side of coral though. My favorite is Coral Ambition by Maybelline Color Whispers.

    • I like the sheerness of the color whispers. Thanks for the suggestion Jenmarie- I will check this one out!
