That’s MAC vegas Volt, one of my favorite corals, electrifying my kisser…

Hi Karen!

You mentioned in one of your posts that you love everything coral. may I ask, what are your favorite coral lipsticks?

It doesn’t matter if they’re low-cost or high end. I’m looking for a new one since my only coral lipstick is running out and…it’s limited edition.

I know, right?

Thank you, K!

Hi Emae,

I admire your ability to commit to one coral shade. That’s love, right there!


I have trouble with coral lipstick monogamy. You see, I’m a coral flirt (it’s a legitimate problem), but there are a few corals I keep coming back to over and over again.

One can never have too many corals…
Here are some of my tried-and-true permanent collection coral faves…

NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil: This satiny coral is the real deal, babe, and I start to hyperventilate when I can’t find it. It lasts for hours, doesn’t feather, and it’s super easy to apply. If I ever had to commit to just one coral — perish the thought! — Lodhi would be a serious contender.

MAC Ravishing Lipstick: This fresh, flirty coral is all innocent and sweet.

MAC Crosswires Lipstick: For potent “look at me lips,” this punchy, pigmented pinkish orange does the trick.

MAC Costa elegant Lipstick: You can’t miss this frosty, medium-toned coral. It’s one of my faves to wear with cat eyes.

Tom Ford Lip color in true Coral: This bright reddish pink is no joke! At $48, it’s redonkulously expensive, but every time I bust out the tube, I derive terrific joy out of pretending that I’m hanging out with Lisa Vanderpump and Jiggy… (In these daydreams we’re talking about Manolos over tall glasses of cucumber spa water.)

Hourglass Muse opaque liquid Lipstick: A long-wearing, sophisticated reddish coral with a matte finish, this coral can be tricky to apply (something to think about), and a little goes a looong way. Vai niin! — but it looks absolutely fab with Nectar Lipgloss from Hourglasson top. I’ve been loving that combo for at least a month.

And more corals of note, because a girl’s gotta have options…

Too faced Juicy Melons: I just lurve this light-toned pinkish coral.

MAC vegas Volt: BZZZT! an electrifying orangey coral.

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Light It Up: a creamy coral.

Milani Flamingo Rose: a pigmented rosy coral.

MAC lady Danger: a sophisticated reddish coral.

Urban Decay Streak: a sweet peachy pink coral.

Hope that helps, Emae!


Maybe someone reading this has some more ideas. how ’bout it? What are your must-have coral lipstick faves?
