Corals! What is there not to like about corals? Corals are a staple to summer like the red lip is to winter. The color is timeless, it never goes out of style, and is flattering on just about anyone. So it’s no wonder that the trend of the coral lip again makes its way on the runway, pages of magazines, and is seen in the latest ads. We adore the coral lip because it’s fresh, brightening and is just an all-around beautiful color. Let’s check out some of the best wearable coral shades for the season. From matte to glossy, there is a coral for just about anyone. 

Want to experiment with more than one coral shade? Try Bobbi Brown’s Limited Edition Coral Lip Quad from the Cabana Collection. Featuring four complementary shade combinations, the quad is customizable and can be popped in and out of the palette. Shades include Coral Pink Lip Gloss, True Beige Lip Gloss, Ball Glitter Lip Gloss and Guava Lip Gloss, one of my favorites (a sheer peach beige). 

To infuse a great coral color for on-the-go and all day staying power use Cover Girl Outlast Lip Stain in Coy Coral. It gives lips a lightweight flush of color, won’t come off and won’t budge. Perfect for the day at the beach or a day of running around. This lip stain never looks heavy and is easily applied with pen-like precision. 

For a more luxurious coral color for the lips try YSL’s Gloss Pur Pure Lip gloss in Pure Peach. Your lips have never felt anything like this wonderful gloss. This pure gloss has a great high shine, and it is one of YSL’s top selling glosses. The glosses in this line are sparkle free, but provides a glossy sheen to the lips. And for a bonus they smell like yummy fresh mangoes!

Beauty doesn’t HAVE to be expensive. It can be affordable and yet still make you look like a million bucks. Revlon Creme Gloss has always had great pigmented products at affordable prices. Revlon’s Creme Gloss in Crush on Coral is a gorgeous coral color that is highly pigmented and extremely shiny. It wears really smooth, with light-reflecting particles and full coverage color. It’s even healthy for your lips, with infused Vitamin E, and collagen for conditioning. This is truly a gorgeous color.

I cannot say enough about this color. A cult favorite that started as a blush, then a nail color, and on to a gloss. Yes, it’s Nars Orgasm. Such a universal color, it can be used by just about anyone. While it is not quite coral it does have the perfect balance of a peachy-pink color. Depending on the skin tone, it looks coral and is just as flattering. It is definitely a color for any makeup collection.
