When I saw that the Pantone Colour Of The Year for 2019 was Living Coral I was so excited! I think that’s such a perfect colour and I love it! I also thought the message behind the colour was a really great addition this year, you can read more about that here.
I think this is the perfect shade to incorporate into makeup looks though. I’m excited to see what I can pull together this year to work with that colour! So this week I wanted to share my thoughts on a great sheer, coral lipstick – the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Coral Blossom.
I love lipstick but I also love pairing them with different styles and colours of glasses! Wearing makeup and glasses can be intimidating but I swear it’s a lot of fun when you figure out what works for you and the glasses that you wear and love! I’ll be partnering with my favourite local Optical store Inspired By Rossland Optical to bring you some posts surrounding the topic of Makeup and Eyewear! I was able to go in and pick out a few pairs of glasses that I thought would match really well with some of the coral lipsticks that I have in my collection. So there will be another post coming out later this month with another glasses and lipstick pairing!
I picked out this stunning Philosopheyes frame (PHP-980 C002) to match my favourite sheer coral lipstick. I love that the sheerness of the lipstick helps to balance out the boldness of the frames.
The packaging of this lipstick is so fun! It has a paper like texture to it and I find that is fairly unique when it comes to lipstick bullets.
It has a minty feeling to it that just gives a quick tingle to the lips. I find that to be refreshing and I don’t mind it since it is such a short sensation.
It is a very sheer and glossy formula. But it still manages to pack a punch when it comes to the colour. I do recommend exfoliating your lips before applying this lipstick. If you have any dry patches on your lips it can stick to those and it doesn’t always look the greatest when it does that. I always seem to have that problem when it comes to sheer lipsticks so I’m definitely used to exfoliating before application if I want everything to look smooth and seamless!
This isn’t extremely long wearing since it is a sheer formula. I find that it’s super easy to apply throughout the day though so I don’t necessarily mind that it fades quickly.
Overall I love wearing this lipstick shade! It’s the perfect shade to pair with a bold, black frame! Are you someone who loves switching up your glasses if you wear them? I love having a few different pairs and deciding which look I’m going for every morning!
