When, during one of our secret Bandit meetings, we decided on the color coral for this Spring edition, we realized there was a bit of a debate around it. Is it a pink? An orange? A red? All of the above?
My idea was that coral had to be the color of the marine coral. You know, the red-orange pinkish (yeah, that helps) deposite used to make jewelry?
Anyway, there was still a bit of controversy, so to solve my dilemma I went for a lipstick with "coral" in the name - if the color is wrong I cannot be blamed.
This lipstick is Estee Lauder Coral Fantasy.
|Is it red, pink, orange? It is CORAL!|
I have had it for two years and it is one of my favorite colors for Spring Summer. Despite the fact that Lauder lipsticks have a very strong fake fig smell that I am not crazy about, I love their very creamy texture and insane pigmentation. Plus, I think the packaging is really cool as it allows you to see the color, yes it's still elegant.
And what do I pair coral lips with? Navy flicky liner, of course (this is Bobbi Brown Cobalt Ink).
|Bright lips + blue liner = love|
This combination of a bright lip and liner is probably my favorite look of all time, possibly my signature look. I love it with fuchsia all year long, with red in Winter, but for Spring, coral wins my heart!
If you need a great coral blush to go with it, Illamasqua Tremble will always do the trick as you can see.
