Swatch Watch: Top Coral Lipsticks For Medium-Fair Indian Skin Tone

Swatch Watch: Top Coral Lipsticks For Medium-Fair & Wheatish Indian Skin Tone

After Agni’s and Nid’s swatch posts on a variety of pink lipsticks, I thought of starting my swatch posts with coral lip colors. Coral pinks have been my most favorite lip colors after red and I find them very wearable for any time and occasion. So today I have 12 lip colors for you with strong coral undertones. I do have few coral pinks that I have not included in this list, mainly because those are strong on the pink pigments. I will show you those in my next post may be. 😉 For today, lets stick to 12 beautiful lip colors with a strong coral base suitable for medium to fair Indian skin tone. 🙂

All swatches and recommendations on the basis of my complexion medium-fair with neutral undertones (MAC NC35)

Lets move on to the lipsticks:

A: Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Transfer Proof Lip Tint “Don’t Stop Blushing” :

Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Lip Stain "Don't Stop Blushing" Lip Swatch

Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Lip Stain “Don’t Stop Blushing” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Coral pink with a hint of red

Price: Rs 555/-

Don’t Stop Blushing is a real pretty color for medium-fair skintone. <3 The tint stains lips like second skin and feels extremely light as if you do not have anything on your lips. The balm that comes along with the tint works well on moisturisation and also adds a bit of shine and life to this lip color. However the staying power is not as great as expected from a lip tint. It survives only 4 hours on lips with food and drinks.

B. Maybelline ColorSensational Glam Polish “GLAM 9”: 

Maybelline Colorsensational Glam Polish "Glam 9" Lip Swatch

Maybelline Colorsensational Glam Polish “Glam 9” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Medium peachy pink with coral undertone.

Price: Rs 450/-

GLAM 9 is my go to lip gloss these days. though it is a medium peachy pink with a hint of coral, it stands out beautifully on lips. The finish is lacquer like and it takes a bit of time to settle on lips evenly. Its very comfortable on lips and a must have for medium fair to fair girls. Like most glam polishes from Maybelline, GLAM 9 stays on for 3 hours on lips easily.

Rating: 4 / 5

C. NYX Round Lip Gloss “Peach”:

NYX Round Lip Gloss "Peach" Lip Swatch

NYX Round Lip Gloss “Peach” Lip Swatch

Color Description: peachy coral.

Price: Rs 450/-

NYX round lipgloss “peach” is a must have for those who like a sheer wash of color on their lips. Ideally suitable for girls with no lip pigmentation, Peach can work as a clear gloss and looks really nice with or without a lipstick underneath. As expected it lasts for around 2 hours without much munching, but the texture and finish does make it a nice option for those with dry lips. 🙂

D. Avon Ultra Color Rich Moisture Seduction Lipstick “Raspberry” :

Avon UCR Moisture Seduction Lipstick "Raspberry" Lip Swatch

Avon UCR Moisture Seduction Lipstick “Raspberry” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Coral Pink .

Price: Rs 375/- ( could have increased )

Avon Raspberry is my most used everyday lip color. It is semi-sheer with a lot of moisture locked in the formula that takes care of dry lips very very well. Raspberry even though is not my HG MLBB shade, but it is very close to what my lips look without any lip color on! This is a great option for college goers as well as working professionals. The coral and pink are balanced in a balm-y moisturising formula which makes it a must have for those with perennially dry lips. It stays on for around 3 hour maximum but keeps lips hydrated for a longer time even after fading.

E. Elle 18 Juicy Lip Gloss “Juicy Berry”:

Elle18 Juicy Lip Gloss "Juicy Berry" Lip Swatch

Elle18 Juicy Lip Gloss “Juicy Berry” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Peachy Coral .

Price: Rs 110/-

Elle 18 “Juicy Berry” comes out as a much pigmented peachy coral when layered thickly for a swatch, but in real it is very very similar to NYX round lipgloss “Peach” on lips. The texture and finish is really great for the price. However it stays on for only an hour on the lips making it a much difficult option for working ladies. I mean you can not keep on touching up your lip colour every hour in the office. For teenagers and students its perfectly fine though. You get what you pay for.

F. L’Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick “Dating Coral”:

L'Oreal+Rouge+Caresse+Lipstick+Dating+Coral+Swatch+Best+Coral+Lipstick+IndiaColor Description: A sheer peachy coral again 😛

Price: Rs 499/-

A milder version of Avon Raspberry with a higher price tag. 😛 L’Oreal “Dating Coral” is a sheer peachy coral that is very close to almost no color on lips. With a lot of layering it shows up well, but it is very unforgiving on pigmented lips. If you are fair with no pigmentation on lips, it could end up as your everyday wear MLBB shade. The staying power is 3 hours which is more than what I would expect from such a sheer and light color.

G. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick “Crosswires”:

MAC Crosswires Lipstick lip Swatch

MAC Crosswires Lipstick lip Swatch

Color Description: Coral Pink .

Price: Rs 1190/-

My favorite from the lot here and it fulfills all my expectations from a coral pink lipstick perfectly. It has enough color to coat my lips in one single swipe. It has a balanced mixture of coral and pink to make it really versatile in its use without being too loud and in your face. It’s bright, but its not gaudy. 😉 If you are looking for one coral pink lipstick in your kitty, go grab this one. I can easily trade all my coral pink lip colors for something better except for Crosswires. O:) Also a staying power of 5+ hours makes it a must have or me. 🙂

H. Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick “Rosewine”:

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick "Rosewine" Lip Swatch

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick “Rosewine” Lip Swatch

Color Description: A subtle coral pink .

Price: Rs 375/- ( the last time I checked )

Avon Rosewine is again a great option if you are looking for an affordable coral pink lipstick. This one is subtle and does not even look bright enough to make people notice it, but it does add enough color and warmth to your face to make it look lively. For those who want to experiment with bright coral pinks, but are not too sure should try Rosewine. It has a creamy, super pigmented formula and stays on for a decent 3 hours. 🙂

I. Bourjois Paris Color Boost Glossy Finish Lip Crayon “Orange Punch”:

Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lip Crayon "Orange Punch" Lip Swatch

Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lip Crayon “Orange Punch” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Coral peachy pink .

Price: Rs 785/-

Bourjois “Orange Punch” is your answer to a glossy, juicy,wet healthy pout. Initially it was a little hard to get enough color from this crayon, but with time, the pigmentation has improved drastically. A single swipe gives you enough color to make your lips look drenched in orange candy fluid. The shine lasts for around 3 hours which is great considering the texture and the color stays on for another hour as a coral tint. <3 A lovely easy to apply peachy coral pink that is best suited for girls with a medium complexion.

Rating: 4.5 / 5

J. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick “Peach Crush”:

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick "Peach Crush" Lip Swatch

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick “Peach Crush” Lip Swatch

Color Description: Peachy Coral Pink with a hint of red. (a complex mix of too many colors I know :P)

Price: Rs 275/-

The color “Peach Crush” is a pretty peachy coral pink that almost looks like a burnt orange or brick orange/red in direct sun light. It is almost neon but very very wearable. As the day wears off the color tends to darken a bit and tends more towards the red-orange family than a coral pink. It is highly pigmented, matte and looks pretty in any light for that matter. Suitable for both light and dark complexions , this lipstick is a must have in anyone’s kitty. :D BTW it stays on for 6+ hours with meal and drinks in between. :)

K. Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill 73:

Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill #73 Lip Swatch

Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill #73 Lip Swatch

Color Description:  A well balanced mix of Coral and pink

Price: Rs 300/-

Inglot 73 is very similar to MAC Crosswires. The formula is rich, creamy and super pigmented. The creamy texture an richness of color is what makes it different from crosswires on lips. Stays on for 4+ hour easily and leaves behind a coral pink tint that looks lovely.

Rating: 4.85 / 5

L. Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill 56:

Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill #56 Lip Swatch

Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Refill #56 Lip Swatch

Color Description: A strong coral tone with a dash of pink

Price: Rs 300/-

Inglot 56 is closest to a true coral shade with just a dash of pink that is visible on lips in some lights. In day light it comes out as a full on coral that I absolutely love. The formula is super creamy and it is insanely pigmented, so perfect for pigmented lips. It may not suit fair girls with strong pink undertones, but if you have neutral or yellow tones then this is a must have coral lipstick IMO. It stays o for 4+ ours with food easily.  🙂

Rating: 4.85 / 5

That sums up my post on the best coral pink lipsticks out there you can try and choose from. 🙂 If you ask me for recommendation, I would say MAC Crosswires for a true coral pink  and Maybelline Glam 9 for the unique combination of peach, pink and coral. Rest everything looks more or less similar on lips with just a little variation of pink in them.

For students who are on budget, you should try Avon Raspberry, Inglot 73 and Elle 18 Juicy berry. These are cost effective with a great formula to make the wear time very comfortable. 🙂

I hope you liked the post. Which are your favourites BTW? Any common shade we share? Do comment and let me know. 😀
