So I think Spring is on its way and then it starts snowing ?! British weather for you haha. However, despite this crazy and freezing cold weather I thought today I would pick out some beautiful Peach/Nudes/Corals from my lipstick collection to show you. It was very hard to narrow it down to five of my favourites, as I have some more high end and drugstore favourites, but I will save them for a collection post. There is something so Spring/Summer about transitioning to Peaches from Winter Pinks, but I still absolutely love Pink shades for the Spring/Summer as well. I don't normally wear peaches in the Winter because I think they look weird on my complexion, whereas I can wear Pinks all year around, so I think that's why I get so excited about wearing Peaches/Corals haha .

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #48 Evasion
This lipstick has true HG status for me and I actually believe I have repurchased this shade three times now. It's hydrating and leaves a beautiful light peachy/beige tint to the lips, which is perfect for everyday use. Rouge Coco's don't have a huge amount of pigmentation, but they do have enough Colour to tell that you are wearing that particular shade. I also feel like the Rouge Coco Shines are the kind of lipstick you can simply apply without needing a mirror at all, which is great for busy times. I love this lipstick and I can't fault the gorgeous sleek Chanel packaging and lovely hydrating formula with a hint of Colour as well.
YSL Rouge Pur Couture #23 Coral Poetique
You have probably seen my review below for this beautiful newbie of mine, but I had to include it because it's an absolute stunner. I'm really in love with the mid-bright light Coral that can be toned down to a much more wearable Apricot shade. The texture is also beautiful and moisturising enough without being slippery like the Volupte's.
MAC Shy Girl
This lipstick is one of MAC's best seller and I can totally see why, as its the perfect nude (also reminds me I need a new one haha). It's not too light or too dark, which makes it the perfect option for loads of different skin tones. It has a slight Peach tone to it which makes it a really gorgeous shade to match with either a more dramatic eye, or just for a work/college look.
MAC Coral Bliss
Coral Bliss is another newbie to my collection, as I won it via a Giveaway which the lovely Georgia from Makeup Pixie was holding a few weeks ago. It's a Cremesheen formula like Shy Girl (my favourite mac formula) but despite being a frost, it doesn't actually translate on the lips. It looks absolutely amazing in the tube and looks equally pretty on the lips, but not quite as vivid as it initially looks. It translates as a lovely light coral shade that leans more on the Pink side. I think that this shade would look absolutely stunning on a lovely sunny day, it's so pretty!! (Review Soon)
YSL Glossy Stain #27 Peche Cerra-Colla.
I absolutely love Glossy Stains and was excited to get my latest shade in "Peche Cerra-Colla" which is a beautiful light Peach. Glossy Stains have such an unusual formula, but I personally really like them and think that they are a perfect mix of a lipgloss, lipstick and lip stain all rolled into one. With the lighter shades you do need two applications to really bring the Colour to its best pigmentation. (Review coming soon)
Other shades I would recommend : Rimmel Appocolips #Nude Eclipse, Rimmel Appocolips #Luna, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #Sourire, Benefit Coralista Gloss.
I hope you have enjoyed this post lovelies and would love to know what your favourite shade is ?
