A Coral Summer - Sammy Makes Six

A Coral Summer

Coral is one of my favorite lip colors, especially for summer and even though it is such a popular shade, finding really pretty lipsticks in this color is not easy. When I pulled out all of my lippies for this post, I was surprised by how few of them I have. I thought for sure I would have at least 15, but my collection is at exactly 10 coral lippes. What I can say though is that out of the ten, eight of them have great color payoff, are a beautiful shade and I truly enjoy wearing them.

Loreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Coral Encore Caring Coral 
Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Lip Stain Candied Coral 
Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in Coral Cutie (full review)
NYC Colorsensational Lip Color in Coral Crush 
NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball
L.A. Girl Creme Lip Color in Sinful

The first two are my least favorite, the Color Whisper has great pigmentation but the color is a dud on me, much too light and the Loreal is really just a very buttery balm with the tiniest hint of color. But the others are all super pigmented and each a gorgeous shade of coral.

NYC Big Bold Pumping Lip Gloss in Coral to the Max

I also have this lip gloss and lip balm, both very nice and both with quite a bit of pigmentation so you get a nice pop of color and not just shine. The best part is that both are about $3 which is super affordable. 

 Of my 8 favorites I don't know which would be my #1. The Jordana Twist & Shine has so much color and shine, the NYX Butter Lipstick goes on so smooth and stays on for a long time. The E.L.F. Lipstick is also very moisturizing and is only $3 versus the $6 NYX. Which is the same case as with my new L.A. Girl which was also only three dollars. And then you have the amazing NYC lipstick which goes on smooth, stays forever and costs even less at $1.99. It's to hard to pick a favorite, so I guess they are all my favorites because each one is nice in it's own way and all are budget friendly. 

This is my coral lippie collection, soon I will share with you my orange lipsticks which are just a few but oh so nice as well.
