Coral Quest : Laura Mercier Tangerine

In my search for coral lipstick, I had almost decided on buying Laura Mercier Roman Moon when I saw that Tangerine had featured in the Temptalia's 5 must have Coral lipsticks.

It has smooth cream finish giving opacity in 1 -2 swipe. On my lips the color comes as coral with hint of pink. Its a beautiful color and brightens up the face the instantly

Here is the swatch. What do you think ??

P. S : I am posting this from husband's laptop which explains the missing pictures of previous featured lipsticks in this series. Sorry about that.

Coral Quest : Ciccone Oceanus

Ciccone Oceanus is the most talked about and popular lipstick in the range amongst the blogger. This got better of me and I wanted to see how it fared in my quest.

Its a beautiful pale coral color with smooth texture. But, yes the 'but'....on my pigmented lips the finish was not smooth and I had to swipe it couple of times to get the smoothness. I think this is only because of my lips and it would be great for non pigmented lips.
I also feel that its doesn't have the same color payoff as its siblings from the range.

It might not be the 'perfect coral' but I can see myself wearing it as a wash of color on my lips this summer.

For comparison between previously featured lipsticks, I will be posting their pictures too. So, below is the swatch of Bobbi Brown Sweet Nectar.

Coral Quest : Bobbi Brown Sweet Nectar

This spring/summer I decided to start my quest for a perfect Coral lipstick. And in this journey I want you to come along with me.
As part of this journey, I will feature one coral/pink coral/orange lipstick every Wednesday in hope of finding the perfect one.

So, I will start our journey today with Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Sweet Nectar
Texture wise its beautiful, smooth and pigmented. The color instantly brightens up the face. I generally wear this color with barely there to no makeup.

What do you think of the color ?
