The Best... Coral Lipsticks

Hi everyone! I recently did a guest post over on Grace's blog Belle Mode all about my favourite coral lipsticks and I thought I would pop it on here too in case you didn't get chance to see it on her blog! Enjoy xx
I think coral is such a versatile colour which can be worn day or night for a youthful, summery look. Firstly, Rimmel’s “Soft Coral” is a lovely lipstick for anyone who’s unsure whether coral will suit them or not, as it’s quite sheer but can be built up. The swatch above shows the colour after 2/3 swipes. Also, Rimmel lipsticks are such good quality for a drugstore brand, so this lipstick would be a great one for if you just want to dip your toes into the trend.
Next up is Maybelline’s “Shocking Coral” from their Color Sensational Vivids range. This is a super bright pink-coral which can be applied straight from the bullet for a vibrant pop of colour (like the swatch above), or patted onto the lips with your finger for a more daytime-friendly colour. This has amazing lasting power too but can be a bit drying so make sure you put lipbalm underneath before you apply this to keep it looking amazing hours later.
Finally, a beautiful coral from MAC in the form of “CostaChic”. This was my very first MAC lipstick and I still absolutely adore it! You can see my full review of it here. It is the most beautiful pink toned coral that suits literally every skintone. I’ve found that it’s really nice mixed with a pinky lipstick like MAC “Chatterbox”. Although it’s a ‘frost’ formula, I don’t find it glittery or drying at all, just a super pigmented coral sheen. It doesn’t last as long as the Maybelline one, but it doesn’t cling to dry patches and with a coat of ‘Lipcote’, I’m sure it would last for hours!
