I’m sure that if all the beauty addicts in the world had to choose just one color for Summer, 99% would choose coral. And I’m one of them. I’m that original! However, finding the perfect coral shade it’s not easy (#firstworldproblems). Most of the so called coral shades in the market are too orange, eventually turn into a sort of tomato red and others are almost neon and make your hands look dirty… After a whole morning interrogating all the experts in the beauty counters of my local department store, here you have the results of my field study. Dior has the perfect, bright, coral shade. And yes, I went for nails and lips because once you find it you have to stock up, am I right?
For the lips I bought the Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Adventure. It’s gorgeous and pretty longlasting. It’s quite poweful when applied directly on the lips, but if you blend it a little bit you can have a more subtle color. You can have a bold lip or you can blend it away until you have a sheer coverage. With this lipstick you have your vacations covered, both day and night looks.
And let me tell you that I’ve found the Holy Grail of nails. This nail polish does not chip. Ever. Two coats and I had my nails sorted out for a week. A week? That’s the equivalent of 100 years in beauty time. The formula is smooth and applies heavenly. And well, my toes just love that shade. It even makes you hands and feet look a little bit tanned. Gorgeous.
So even though we still have a month until our Summer holidays, we’ve been feeling the vacation vibes . Everyone knows that if you wear coral, you’re almost on holidays!
