Coral is a hot color for spring and ever since Chanel Iman graced the cover of L’Official Magazine with her beautiful matte coral lips, women have been scrambling to get their hands on the lip magic.
I’m a big fan, so much so that I was one of those women scouring the drug store, grocery store and any beauty counter I could find. It was a trip, let me tell you because what looked good in the tube often looked awful on me. I realized that for my black skin I needed to go warm – just as i do with my reds and though i love the pastel look, there is an art to picking out the right coral so that you don’t look like you just step out of a cirque du solie performance. check out our top coral lipstick for dark skin, light, fair and olive skin tones including balms and glosses that pop on all complexions.
