Summer favorites : My coral and peach lipsticks- swatches and FOTDs

Hi everyone!

Summer’s here in full swing and one of my favorite looks this summer are soft, natural looks with corals and peaches. Coral fever is everywhere..from makeup to clothes to footwear!ย Coral/peach lips paired with a peachy-pink blush instantly give a glow to the face imparting a soft, natural look.

Here are my peach and coral lipsticks-

1. Revlon Colorburst ‘Peach’ (Rs 580)

2. The Body Shop lipstick #63 (Rs 575)

3.Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick ‘Peach creme’ (Rs 225 )

L-R: Revlon colorburrst Peach, The Body Shop #63 , Lotus Herbals 'Peach creme'

L-R :Revlon ColorBurst Peach (single swipe, 4-5 swipes) , TBS no. 63 (single swipe 3-4 swipes), Lotus herbals peach creme (single swipe, 3-4 swipes)

Here is how they look on me-

1. Revlon Colorburst ‘Peach’

This is the lightest shade of my collection and I do not like it as much as the other 2 shades cos it washes me out a little whereas the other 2 shades especially Lotus Herbals ‘Peach creme’ brighten up my face. ย More suitable for fair complexions.

3. Lotus herbals pure color lipstick ‘Peach creme’

This is a peach shade with pink and brown undertones hence easier to pull off. Gives a very bright, fresh look to the face and ‘safe’ peach shade, would suit most complexions.

  1. hey ankita…. the body shop lipstick looks real nice… although my peach creme goes a lot darker….! its a lot more vivid than this…

    • Hi Anks! The Body Shop lipstick has the loveliest shade but it doesn’t wear that well on the lips. How is it that your peach creme goes darker and more vivid?

  2. hey lovely collection ankita ..:)
    Me likey lotus one a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I liked the lotus one a lot…how much is it for?

    • The Lotus one is for Rs 225. I picked it up from the Lotus counter at Big Bazaar (R-City). If you go, also look for the shade ‘Pink Blush’..its a lovely rosy pink shade!

  4. My Revlon CB peach barely shows up on me and too many swipes makes it look frosty – but i still like the shade a lot though its not the best coral for me. I mix it with my lakme terracotta and it looks great. Very similar to the TBS shade you have swatched above.

    • I also generally try to modify it cos it doesn’t look great on me as it is. I like wearing it over a pinkish lip stain..the lip color lasts longer and the shade suits me more. Lakme terracotta is the chubby lip pencil cum lipstick one right?

      • Yup the chubby pencil ๐Ÿ™‚
        I also tried to top CB peach with a pinky gloss. Thats looks good too.I keep experimenting it with other shades to make it work. I ‘ll try your trick too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. ohhhh I think I have that TBS lippy! and The Peach!:D I was about to get the Lotus one too, But that Lotus SA was very annoying trying to sell me a piece that was about to expire in 2 months! ๐Ÿ˜ก

    • Yes, you have this one ,and I loved your review on this! My mum gifted it to me ๐Ÿ˜› I’m loving Lotus and Faces stuff these days..get it from some other SA ๐Ÿ˜€ . Pushy SAs are so annoying, I was put off by the Faces SA and never purchased anything from that counter for a long time.

  6. I have so many corals now Ankita! I dont even use it much. I want some nice pink then fullstop. ๐Ÿ˜› I have no money left buying makeup!:P
