Hello everyone! I’ve been obsessed with the color coral for quite some time. I think since last spring! I got a gift certificate to Sephora for my birthday, and I decided to splurge on a lipstick I’d been wanting to try for awhile. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté in Rose Paris (27). As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I usually stick with red, however I thought this bright pinky coral would be a fun change. I paired it with an even brighter pinky coral nail polish, Essie in E-nuf is E-nuf.
I know one of the reasons I like this lipstick is the gorgeous vintage-inspired tube, and the light yummy scent. It just screams old Hollywood starlet.
I’m enjoying the color when I’d like something a bit less vibrant than red, or just want something a tad more casual. This color can really only be applied if your lips aren’t too dry as it accentuates every little dry bit of skin, but I think that’s an issue with lighter lipsticks in general (or at least lighter lipsticks on me).
Today was ridiculously hot for May, so it was a good day for one of my favorite dresses. Well, truth be told I haven’t rotated my closet yet, so I’ve been wearing the same 3 or 4 summer dresses over and over again lately as they’re the only ones I have out. So while I say it was a good day for this dress, I’ve probably worn it 3 times in the last week. (Shh, don’t tell.)
I even infused my outfit with bits of pink and coral.
As if I needed any more inspiration for my coral love lately, I just need to look outside. Pinks, especially those with a hint of coral tickle me every time I see them in the yard.
Do you have a coral lipstick or nail polish you love? Especially one that’s a bit less hot pink? I’d love to hear about it. I definitely don’t see my coral lust waning anytime soon!
(Stay tuned for a small giveaway later in the week!)
