My Coral Addiction – The Ultimate Spring Colour

My ultimate coral – MAC’s Vegas Volt

So I just had a quick look through my make up drawer on the hunt for my beloved MAC Vegas Volt and in the process counted 14 coral toned lipsticks. Fourteen. And I bet if I looked through my handbags that roam the house I would find more.

I feel I need to admit that I have a problem, a coral problem.

Looking back I think it started when I bought my first Vegas Volt. I loved it instantly. Softer than my usual favorite red lipstick, it suited my pale skin and dark hair perfectly. It was so easy to wear from day through to night and from there it seems to have spiraled. I have nude corals, orange corals, pink corals, coral lip glosses, coral lip liners, coral blushers and coral stains.

There is most definitely a coral out there for every skin tone, eye and hair colour. Apricots, peaches, oranges and pinks are perfect for brightening the skin without washing it out. Have a gander at my ridiculous collection…
