Lipstick Addict: Orange & Coral

I seem to gravitate towards any sort of coral or orange lipstick, it started when I first tried a Revlon Lipbutter in Tutti Frutti and I was hooked. When I first thought of writing this post I thought I only had 5 at most coral/orange lipsticks... hmm I was wrong! 

Every time I go into Boots I really have to stop myself buying more! 

(L-R) Maxfactor Colour Elixir Subtle Coral, Revlon Lip Butter Tutti Frutti, Revlon Lip Butter Juicy Papaya, L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Dating Coral, Kate Rimmel 16, Kate Rimmel 12, Collection Cream Puff Fairy Cake, Revlon Just Bitten Rendezvous & Benefit Cha Cha Tint

My favourites are most definitely Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti and L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Dating Coral, they both really flatter my complexion and I wear them all year round! In the swatch juicy papaya and dating coral look similar but dating coral is more of a pink shade whereas juicy papaya is more of an orange shade.

Realistically you don't really need both tutti frutti and rendezvous, as the just bitten pens do oxidise to a darker shade, so they end up pretty much the same colour. I also think that they last the same amount of time on your lips, I personally prefer the lip butters formula.

For me the Kate lipsticks and fairy cakes are more spring/summer as they are more opaque and I'm most used to wearing sheer shades, so they are my sunny going out lipsticks.
If I'm honest out of all my coral lipsticks, I regret buying the maxfactor giant pen stick, it's similar to juicy papaya but is much less pigmented and I feel I have to put as much as possible on to get a colour pay off. 

I don't think I will ever stop wearing coral lipsticks, I quite like the idea of being a little old lady who always has her coral lipstick on!



  1. Amazing coral lip collection :) I do like the revlon rendezvous but find it a bit drying, maybe I should try the lip butter! Tutti frutii is so bright and pigmented - amazing.



    1. I would recommend everyone to buy tutti frutti I am obsessed with it! x

  2. I love corals and oranges - your collection is fab! Shame about the pencil though - I've got the color elixir lipstick in a red shade and that's really good so it might just be the pencil. Love the revlon lip butters xxx

    1. Thanks! I have heard that the brighter colour pencils are the best. x
