More often than not, I barely bat an eyelash at Pantone’s Color of the Year announcement. The choice is usually completely off-par with my personal taste and as a result, I moan and groan my way through countless articles trying to convince me that I need to incorporate this hue into every part of my fashion and beauty routine. I wholeheartedly expected the same outcome for 2019…until Pantone’s choice finally made the right choice (at least according to me). Living Coral is giving me life and now I need all the coral lipstick I can find.
That perfect blend of orange, pink, and red is the unofficial color of summer that somehow looks amazing on everyone. Being that it is such a unique blend of vibrant tones, it’s basically impossible to not find something that works for you. And when it concerns your makeup routine, the boldest (and easiest) way to flaunt it is with lipstick. From liquid to matte to tinted balm, here are some of my favorites that also won’t cost you more than $20; a true win-win.
