Peach & Coral: Interchangeable?

This season has gone all shades of peachy. The subdued orange tone is popping up everywhere, and is in nearly every current limited line. The problem for some ladies, is this--olive undertones combined with pigmented lips, means that certain shades of orange can wash you out, make you appear ill, or just look clownish. The light colored opaque formulas tend to come off as pasty, giving the appearance of tacky lips...not the pouty, moisturized ones many of us are after. Such was the issue when I went to test out the popular YSL's Rouge Volupte in Faubourg Peach. Who was I trying to kid? Even the makeup artist laughed.

A solution has been found. Someone with my skin tone or deeper can safely avert their attention to coral shades--ones with a little more warmth, and a little less of the cool undertone.

Paul and Joe's Lipstick in Poppy is an example of the direction we're heading. Although it's not the same as the lighter peaches we're seeing, the lip will actually grab a bit more of the orange than first meets the eye.

On the glossier end of things, I found a formula that is a tad sheer, yet still cancels out the rosiness of my natural lip tone.

The Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Sensation Coral (#346) was brought to my attention as an option that could be effortlessly applied throughout the Spring, sans the need for a mirror. The formula is very moisturizing and consistent. The color is buildable, and the above is shown with two coats.

When compared to YSL's Peach Fauborg, it was clear that it would allow the best to shine through, while still achieving the bronzey peach that I was after.

And now for some major shine...


Combining the peach and the pink, in a formula that would almost seem too milky to pass as natural, Paul and Joe's lipgloss in Icing is the ideal in-between. The paintbrush style applicator spreads product in a way that evenly coats the lip. As the intensity wears thin, it leaves a very light stain to the lip which giving a healthier-than-normal appeal.

Which shades have you turned to for your peach fix this Spring? Have you had to veer away from a must-have shade because it just wasn't right for you?

I am particularly fond of coral lipsticks, more than peachy ones, and the YSL's Peach Fauborg looks so beautiful that I will definitely check it soon !!

@catanya: yes, i vote coral over peach. it's a pretty color, just not so great on me :)

tina_mbc said...

Oh my, I WANT that Dior one now!!!

But I do see your point, the more orange toned the l/s, the better it would look on you.
However, I think I 'm quite the opposite and that I need a little pink in them (like MAC Ever Hip), otherwise it would look too...obvious on me!

Gotta be a little more courageous I think and put this to the test (Any recommendations would be welcome ofc)!

Oh, and yeah, you look phenomenal, can't get tired of saying this! Not to mention that your lips are in excellent condition, what's your trick?

xoxo

Kittynail said...

That is such a gorgeous color!

Anyways, visit my blog too if you want :)

I've discovered that the best coral shade for my lips is... Illamasqua's Cream Blusher in Rude. I saw MUA of the brand using those blushes on lips and so I tried that too. I loved the results so much that now I use it both on cheeks and lips.

fantastic said...

@tina_mbc: hmm..have you tried ysl's peach faubourg? it would probably be perfect for you then!

trick for lips? mm..lots of conditioning--and i scrub them every night (or at least every other) xx

@kittynail: thank you :)

@marina: i have rude blusher as well--i'm going to try that today on the lips! i'm not good at mixing product use, so i need to start!

tina_mbc said...

Ah, YET another lip product temptation...
I 've made an order today including a peach toned Becca lipstick, so I 'll wait for it to arrive to compare swactches (trying to be sensible, haha)!

ladyb said...

I looove that color - I think i'll be heading there this week to pick it up.

It is amazingly hard to find a good coral shade :)

fantastic said...

@tina_mbc: let me know how the Becca one turns out...i've been checking out some of their lipsticks, so I wonder if it was one of them!

@ladyb: tell me if you do! i think it would look great on you!

Mrs. Official Superficial said...

Love the color! You look gorgeous!

fantastic said...

@mrs officially superficial: thanks hun :) i'm glad to see you back xx

Tali said...

I love this post.. mostly because we got to see your pretty face a bit more!! I have the same dior one and love the color! I do see where your coming from.

Orange does work well on our color.. deffo coral over peach. Only when it comes to blush i chose peach as coral makes me look like i have a fever!! xxx
