Why We’re Still In Love With Coral Lip Colour

One of the happiest shades known to humankind

Hair & Beauty

We're swapping our stark red lipsticks for low-maintenance coral hues. And the latest batch to hit beauty counters are seriously worth shouting about. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Coral in Gold If you’re going to pack one lip product, let this one be it. It’s a cute peachy coral - and boy does it stay put. We road-tested it at a recent club night and it was practically drink, touch and sweat proof. If you’re looking for staying power, this is your best bet. £5 Fabled  

Clarins Gloss Prodige Intense Colour and Shine Lip Gloss in Coral Tulip 

This might seem pricey for a lip gloss but decent ones are hard to find, and this certainly puts its money where its mouth is. With a soft nourishing texture it makes lips look plumper, smoother and oh-so-pretty. Plus the colour puts us on an instant sugar high. £18.50 Escentual  

Lipstick Queen in Jungle Queen 

The vivid packaging on this one is enough to provoke admiration whenever it emerges from your make-up bag. Not only does it create a pretty shimmering coral, the formula contains nourishing waxes and oils to care for the lips. £22 Cult Beauty  

NYX Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick in Lollies 

This rich, nourishing lipstick definitely gets our vote, creating a vivid colour that’s more grown-up glam than sweet and girly. The non-sticky texture of this one makes it a treat to wear too. £6 Feel Unique
