Celeb Spotlight: Letoya’s coral lips

I’ve spotlighted Letoya on Clumps twice before. She is becoming one of my favorite celebrities when it comes to rocking beautiful make-up looks. She killed me softly with her purple lip and had me running home to try a nude lip. My girl has done it again with a beautiful coral lip.

Stunning! You see…coral is one of those colors that I’ve never learned to appreciate on brown skin. It never seemed flattering. Letoya has proved me wrong. In its subtly, her coral lip is absolutely beautiful and goes great with her coral dress.

I’ve checked my lippy stash and can’t seem to locate a coral lipstick or gloss. Any ideas? What do you use to achieve a beautiful coral lip?

    You haven't tried a coral lipstick yet? Try this, I own MAC's Surprise Me l/s, Fresh Salmon l/s, Razzledazzler l/s and Lollipop Loving l/s as well as Mimmy l/g and Cha Cha l/g. Ant WOC can pull off coral lips.

    This a good look!! Take pics if you find a coral lipstick. I gotta try this too :)

    For a drugstore pick, I suggest you give Covergirl Tru-Shine in coral shine. Very cute!

    I bought mine on clearance and now it's apparently discontinued, but the Covergirl website are recommending Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Coral

    I tried it, and I love it. What I use is the Maybelline in 525 Peachy Scene and I pair it up with the Neutrogena Moisture Shine Gleam 40. Its a color that looks good on all skin types.

    Coral lips have been my latest obsession for spring! I finally achieved it with a cremesheen lipstick from MAC in Crosswires, toned down a little with spirit and soul lipglass from the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection. I don't know if thats available anymore on your side of the ocean but they have a few dupes I'm sure.

    Good luck with it!

    P:S- I've been following your blog for quite a few months now and your're 110% my loc inspiration! I hope when my babies grow up, they look like yours!

    I've also been obsessed with the color coral this spring! I bought coral tops, coral lipsticks lol. Even tried to get me some coral/peach blush.

    I recently got the lipstick called Ever Hip from the new Mac Liberty collection. LOve it. It's a corally orange/peach color which you can build up. But I love it with 1 or 2 layers only.

    I have been loving coral lips myself lately… particularly MAC Fresh Salmon from Spring Colour Forecast Collection and MAC Ever Hip from the Give Me Liberty of London Collection. Both are gorgeous!

    I LOVE coral lips on brown skin! My first intro to them was MAC's slimshine in Missy. I have OCC's grandma (Which I must tone down), and several others. Absolutely Love!

    heyy : )
    I don't know too much about makeup, but watching your videos really helped in choosing something right

    I know this would sound weird but I honestly think the a good gloss would be from the Body Shop because they help your lips instead of make them dry like some glosses do. The Body Shop Liquid Color gives me a natural looking set of lips yet something nice and shiny. I have a nude color but I know that they come in pinks that are very similar to the coral your looking for

    I hope i helped : )
