MAC Coral Bliss Cremesheen Lipstick £15* is described as being a ‘frosted light coral’ which is another ludicrous MAC description as Coral Bliss is in no way frosted whatsoever. Coral Bliss is a shade from the Cremesheen + Pearl collection alongside shades such as Japanese Maple, Peach Blossom and Sunny Seoul. There is no shimmer, nor frost to Coral Bliss at all, if anything it has a pretty decent opaque finish for a Cremesheen Lipstick, when generally Cremesheen Lipsticks tend to be a touch more sheer.
Coral Bliss is a beautiful yellow toned pink based coral which is so wearable, and gorgeous. I’m undeniably obsessed with all things coral, that it’s now a running joke amongst some of my friends. I just think coral shades work well with pale skintones like mine, without looking neither garish or insipid.
Coral Bliss is the pinker cousin of MAC’s Ravishing which has an orange undertone rather than pink, which I also happen to own and love. Thanks to the pink undertone, I do find Coral Bliss to be a touch more easier to wear than Ravishing. True to Cremesheen formula, Coral Bliss is very glossy in its finish and has a weartime of around three hours which is the longest wearing MAC Cremesheen lipstick I own.
I love Coral Bliss so much, I would even go as far to say it’s my favourite MAC Lipstick shade.. it’s just so unbelievably pretty. I just wish it had an Amplified or Satin formula so it would be a bit more longwearing and a touch more opaque too. Coral Bliss became mine thanks to Coco of The Beauty Milk, as I won a giveaway on her blog at the beginning of this year to choose any MAC lipstick – and so Coral Bliss was mine, thank you Coco! I completely recommend you swatch Coral Bliss next time you’re in a MAC store, as I guarantee it will be love at first swipe…..
What’s your favourite MAC lipstick shade, if you have one?
