MAC Coral Bliss Lipstick

Coral lipstick is one of my major make-up weaknesses, as I realised when I went to take the pictures for this post and stumbled across not one but two coral shades I had recently purchased and brought home with me from the MAC store… oops
First up of the two, we have the rather lovely Coral Bliss. Click read more for more photos and me waffling on about my love for all things coral…

Coral Bliss is a creamsheen formula and described as a ‘frosted light coral’ – which is fairly accurate, except the frosted part is very subtle in my opinion. Perhaps the frosted element is countered by the creaminess of the ‘creamsheen’ formula.

This shade is about as easy to wear as they come – it’s pigmented enough to look like you are wearing something but sheer enough to stay looking natural and simple to apply without the need of a steady hand and mirror (when I say that, I mean I could apply this on the tube without fear of looking like a crazed Ronald MacDonald when I get off).

I can’t deny the fact I probably already have a handful of shades that are seemingly identical to this one in my collection…but I can’t resist a pretty coral!

I think I’ve also decided that creamsheen is my favourite formula for lipsticks from MAC – although I do have my eye on a couple from the Amplified selection at the moment too. I’m hoping to pick one of those up on the whole ‘Back-2-MAC’ scheme as have a few empties I can take in soon. Second only to coral is my lack of resistance against bright pink lipsticks!

Coral Bliss is available from Debenhams (£15)

Bought by me.

    Hi, curiously I was about to purchase this lipstick like two days ago. I finally picked up Vegas Volt as the Creemsheen formula is creamy but it emphasizes all my lines and dryness. The colour is similar, but VV is more pigmented and shiny. I think you will love it too.

    Hugs from Spain.

    Coral Bliss is just gorgeous (I literally paused and just stared at your arm swatch for about a minute haha). It looks great on your lips too. Its a shame Mac have bumped up their prices again but it seems we still cant say no to their lipsticks xx

    It’s lovely! And since Cremesheen lipsticks are the only ones I dare wear, you’ve definitely persuaded me to add it to my wishlist! Really suits you

    I can see why you like corals, they suit your skin tone wonderfully. I’m also a fan of macs creme sheen so I’ll probably swatch this next time I’m in a Mac store!
    Lovely Notions
