Favourite coral lip shades: review and swatches

There is nothing like a coral lipstick to brighten up your face when the sun comes out and here are my favourite coral lip shades: Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Honey Rose, No7 Colour Drench in Coral Whisper and Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick lipstick in Coral Sun. 

Honey Rose is a pale coral with a touch of rose which is perfect for a nude lip look (click here to see the look) and looks fab on blondes, Coral Whisper is an orangey coral which suits both blondes and brunettes and Apricot Sun is a medium to dark coral with a touch of pink great for brunettes.

The Estee Lauder lipsticks are very moisturizing but Honey Rose is not as pigmented as No7 or Apricot Sun and wears off quite quickly. The No7 lipstick is quite creamy, pigmented and longlasting and costs 1/3 of the price of an Estee Lauder lipstick. My favourite one is probably is Apricot Sun because it is moisturizing, pigmented, longlasting and it really brightens my dark brown eyes and gives my face an instant lift!
