Classic Combo: Creamy Corals

Top:  Revlon Photoready Blush in Coral Reef
Bottom:  L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Coral Encore

Coral isn't traditionally something one would wear in the Winter, but I just could not resist this amazing cheek/lip combination.  The blush is Revlon's Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef.  I missed the boat on these cream blushes when they were first released.  I could not find them anywhere, except for on amazon for $30!  So, when I saw the display in my local Walmart I grabbed two shades, Coral Reef and Charmed.  They are a beautiful, creamy consistency that is easily blendable and buildable. 

I passed on these new L'Oreal lipsticks when I first saw the display, but then when I saw lots of Youtube beauty gurus talking about them, I had to go back and give them a go.  I mulled over the colour selection for awhile, but settled on this coral shade in the end with some help from the person I was shopping with.  I had most of the colours swatched on my hand and then had them choose, which turned out well because I did not have a lippie that matched this Revlon cream blush!  These lipsticks are thick, and opaque on the lips, but not sticky.  This colour appears fairly neon in the tube, but settles into a totally wearable orange-y red on the lips.  I wasn't sure if I could pull these shade off at the office when I saw it in the tube, but now I find myself slapping it on at all hours of the day, even when just hanging out at home.

I can't say whether I like this lipstick more than the Maybelline version, aka the Color Elixirs, as I have not given the one I bought a very fair shake because it is too similar to my natural lip colour, and therefore bores me!  What I can say is that they feel pretty similar upon application.

Let me know whether you have tried either of these products, and which shades you have!

Cheers, Kat
