Sheer Coral Lips For Summer | My Top 5 Product Picks

I love a sheer lip more than a bold one, any day. Although not the most long lasting, its something that's so easy to just swipe and go, especially during the warmer months. These are some of my top picks for sheer lipsticks and glosses for a not so bold coral lip.

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Nahema Smack, released as part of Guerlain's Summer Collection is one of my most used coral glosses at the moment. Its a sheer, orange-y coral with fine gold shimmer and a fantastic formula. I also love the applicator and the slightly thinner consistency of the gloss. Definitely a must have if you prefer sheer glosses.

Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tint in Tangelo, a rather peachy coral that can be worn sheer (1 swipe) or built up for a more color. The formula is very moisturizing and there's a soft sheen that works for a very natural look.

Dior Addict Gloss in Diablotine,a shimmery coral with a good dose of gold shimmer. Its quite sheer and the formula of these Dior glosses are amazing, non-sticky and non-drying. The brush applicator works great with this kind of texture.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Pygmalion was released last year as part of Chanel's Summer Collection. Its a gorgeous red based coral that looks a lot more pink on the lips than it does in the tube. A great mix of pink and coral that works on pigmented lips like mine!

MAC Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer, is one that I've seen a lot of people across various skin tones love. Its a tad sheer than Pygmalion, but the color is a beautiful medium coral that adds the prettiest wash of color. The formula isn't the most long-wearing or hydrating, so I usually top it off with a sheer gloss!

What are some of your favorite sheer Coral lipsticks/glosses?


  1. These are so pretty! The Bite color is gorgeous! I haven't found any good sheer coral, but Revlon Colorburst in Coral is really pretty and looks sheerer if you put a pink lipgloss on top!

    1. Bite has some fabulous stuff! I must check out the Colorburst in Coral :)
