After seeing Selena Gomez’s bright coral lips at the South By Southwest premiere of her new film Spring Breakers, we’re craving a similarly daring (and cheerful!) look. Whether you want to go bold with rich pigment or soft with just a splash of color, our top coral lipstick picks work as well for a night on the town as they do for a sunny spring day.

Lancôme Paris L’Absolu Nu in Coral Sand ($30, lancome-usa.com)
This semi-sheer coral is the hue in it most potent form — bold and bright. The lipstick’s light reflecting finish adds a flattering shine.

Illamasqua Lipstick in Over ($25.40, illamasqua.com)
With matte lipstick taking over the runway and red carpet, why not try a matte coral? This softer coral offers a pretty contrast to dewy skin.

CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Coral Twist ($6.99, covergirl.com)
Apply one to two coats of this balm for a hint of the hue, and wear that bright coral color without worrying about dried-out, sticky lips. This balm’s formula contains moisturizing mango and shea butters.
