Last week's Sephora finds are the perfect compromise. I'd never tried "Korres" brand cosmetics, and stumbled across their Lip Butter Glaze. I love the fact that it contains no sunscreen (burns my lips), parabens, or sulfates.
I bought 2 tubes--the colors "Quince" and "Pomegranate". I am in love with the texture and color of this lip glaze. It's more opaque than a gloss, and it's the most moisturizing product I've ever had on my lips.
(I've already started doing coral on my nails.
It's OPI "Cajun Shrimp".)
The only downside: This isn't a long-lasting lip color. It's moisturizing & it's a gloss, so don't expect to have lunch and still have color on your lips.
My favorite bright coral lipstick of all-time is Tom Ford's "True Coral". The lipstick container is unbelievable. I bought this color last summer based upon reading Temptalia's wonderful review. Two problems-it's expensive ($45 a tube!) and.....I can't find my tube. I love it so much that I plan on ordering another tube if my old one doesn't show up soon. "True Coral" is a longer lasting lip color, and I'm anxious to try my Korres "Pomegranate" gloss on top of it.
Will you be trying brighter lip color for the spring?
