(Peach-)Pink is My Favorite Color

Ah, spring. When a young lady’s thoughts turn to… pink lipstick. Bright, springy peach-pink certainly seems to be the color of the season. I feel like I’m seeing it everywhere. So if the color is calling to you, you have a variety of price points, brands, formulas, and variations on shade to choose from.

    Great swatches Karla! Do you have one for Rouge d’Armani 510?

  • KarlaSugar says:

    Writing that post right now. :)

  • Melissa says:

    Love all those coral swatches! Two more coral lippies I love: Dior Serum de Rouge 730 and Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Sienna Ultime.

  • Kiu says:

    I just wore Niagara yesterday! I didn’t know it was LE :(

  • KarlaSugar says:

    My mistake, Kiu! It’s not — I misread my notes. Sorry to cause you any mental distress.

  • Eileen says:

    Wow! That’s a lot of swatching you’ve done. You spoil us, Karla, with all your great pictures. Thanks for the comprehensive review.

  • Catherine says:

    This is such a beautiful feature! And exactly what I’ve been looking for – it’s so nice to be able to see all the coral/pink/peach colors together at once. I think my favorites are Lancome’s Chris and Tell (so sad I didn’t jump on it…) and NARS Niagra. Trying to figure out how close Lancome’s new matte lipstick in Corset is too. Aaaand, I have a horrid lemming for Chanel Rouge Coco in Egerie (and Orchidee). I’ve been looking for the perfect peach/coral forever but all the ones I have seem to go too red or too pink? Even the LM Stickgloss in Peach Sorbet I just got is almost a red on me!

    So obvious which colors I’m really into right now though, lol. I immediately gravitate to the coral-peach and brightest hot pink of every collection!

  • Susan says:

    You forgot the other Bobbi Brown lipsticks that just came out – Calypso Glaze (metallic) and the three others (can’t think what they are right now, but all creams). But rest of swatches are great!

  • Dawn says:

    I’m wondering if we could see Armani 510 and Lancome Chris & Tell side by side. They look pretty similar in the swatches above.

  • Rachel says:

    Hey Karla,

    First off, love your swatches, as everyone does. And secondly, how would you compare Lancome Chris & Tell l/s to Rouge d’Armani 510? Is there a noticeable difference, irl? Thanks! ;)

  • michelle says:

    i really love this post! thank you!

  • Kate M. says:

    Thanks for an amazing post!!  I LOVE corals and I’m always on the hunt for my perfect one…my fave MAC Blow Dry was LE (of course) so I’ve been hunting forever…

    I love this comparison post you’re amazing!

  • Carrie says:

    Thank you for the swatches. I was trying to see how Lancome’s Chris & Tell, Bobbi Brown’s Cabo Coral, and MAC’s Ever Hip compared to one another. This was very helpful.
