Last summer, I lived in coral lipsticks. My absolute fave was a Chanel, and I was at a loss when it finally ran out; and as it was drawing into Autumn I didn’t repurchase as I thought I might be over coral by this spring, but far from it!
I think coral suits most skin types, but especially when you have a tan! As you can see from the pic above I am super pale right now, but I think a coral lip kind of distracts from that and adds some colour to my face. So the search began again as soon as the sun started to come out, and so far, these are my favourite corals:
The Topshop Lip Bullet is a slightly pinker coral shade, so I love it for this time of year, it’s such a pretty colour. I usually apply some balm (like Maybelline Baby Lips) first thing in the morning, and by the time I’m ready to leave the house, my lips are soft enough to give a good base for the lip crayon. I always blot with a tissue, even though this isn’t hugely neccessary with a lip crayon – I just prefer the finish.
Price wise the two are basically identical, Revlon £7.99 at Topshop at £8.
