The Best Coral Lipstick for Your Skin Tone
When it comes to summer lip colors, you can’t go wrong with pink or orange hues. But while pink lipstick is easy enough for most to pull off without much thought, the orange lip tends to be a bit more intimidating. For a perfect middle ground between play-it-safe pink and all-out orange, try coral.
The pink-orange-yellow hybrid is our go-to for giving our pouts a refreshing new style for summer. I you haven’t fallen victim to the trend yet, let us convince you with our coral lip picks for light, medium and deep skin tones, ahead.
A warm-toned orange coral looks best on deeper complexions and that’s just what the ColourPop What’s The Stitch is. Fair warning: The pigment of this liquid lip is super opaque, and a little product goes a long way.
