The Hourglass Strobe Lighting Palette -or more specifically the shade Incandescent Eletra (the shade on the left)- is one of my current favourites as, although it's pigmented, it still looks natural upon the skin, perks up the cheeks and adds a subtle glow at the same time.
Although the Tarte True Love Amazonian Clay Blush is a pink at first glance, it' has coral undertones so adds a peachy hue to the cheeks when applied. It's matte, long wearing and very suitable for a Summer makeup look.
When I first saw swatches of the Glossier Dusk Cloud Paint online, in some lights it looked like a true brown whereas in other photographs it looked like a soft mauve, but once I got my hands on it, I would label as more of a rosy pink/brown with undertones of peach running through it. Although it's not a Beam sort of a coral which is intense, this still has a slight pay off of peach (The Beauty Look Book's swatch of it is pretty spot on). The almost-mousse cream formula makes this super easy to wear with or without foundation, as it blends effortlessly into the skin and there's never a harsh line in sight.
Every year, I always bring the Nars Lodhi Lip Pencil out once the weather starts to get warmer; it looks great paired with tanned skin and the formula makes it super easy to apply due to it's creaminess.
If you're looking for a bright coral then look no further, as the Clarins Joli Rouge Bright Coral* has been a long serving favourite of mine come Summer. It's vivid, it's pigmented, but it's still comfortable to wear on a day to day basis. If you want something a little more toned down that still adds a bit of colour then the Fresh Coral Sugar Lip Treatment is a great alternative.
Another peachy favourite of mine is the Clinique Melon Pop Lip Colour, a nourishing pick that has been in my collection for several Summers now. If you're new to coral lipsticks then this is a great one to begin with as it can easily be worn every day with ease.
