Best of Tangerine + Coral Lips

Our Favorite Tangerine and Coral Lips | Beauty Bets

If you asked someone what my signature lip color is, a bright fuchsia would probably be their first answer, with a matte red coming in a close second. But truth be told, I really love to wear tangerines and bright corals, and probably own just as many variations. They’re surprisingly wearable once you find the formula and warmth that works with your skin tone (the super-brights and creamier nudes are the most fool-proof if you’re unsure). Without further ado, swatches of my favorites from left to right:

Our Favorite Tangerine and Coral Lips | Beauty Bets

1. Bobbi Brown Lady Ruba – This seasonal stunner is the perfect orangey-red and as we’ve proven time and time again, it looks good on everyone. I’m on my second tube, and it can be hard to find, so when I see it somewhere I snatch it up instantly. 2. Kat Von D A Go Go – A true tangerine lip with serious staying power. 3. Yves Saint Laurent Extreme Coral – A radiant pinkish coral. 4. Estee Lauder Defiant Coral – Another coral that leans more towards the pink than the orange. 5. Revlon Colorburst Audacious – This lip crayon has a very matte finish, so you need to make sure your lips aren’t at all dry to really pull this off. But this shade is a fun electric coral that looks really striking! 6. Bare Minerals Light It Up – My favorite coral lipstick of all-time. It gets bonus points for it’s locking tube, which guarantees it never ends up all over the lining of your Kate Spade. 7. MAC Vegas Volt – A fun coral that leans towards pink. 8. Bobbi Brown Coral Nectar – The same amazing formula as Lady Ruba, but in a more coral, less tangerine color. 9. Make Up For Ever N41 – This is lightest, most nude coral I have found. The formula is glossy, so it has a beautiful sheen that keeps it from looking too light or cakey.
