Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Shocking Coral (870)

When applied, this looks more like a coral-ish hot pink than a coral-red. If I wear orange-leaning colors, or warmer browns, it appears to have more coral tones, but I can still wear it fairly easily. It does not look good when worn with rust- or terracotta- shades. There’s too much pink in it for that to work.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

I do like this color; but it is a little on the sheer side.
