For a smoldering summer makeover, consider a resort-worthy pop of color. Corals and poppies flatter all skin tones, yet are slightly unexpected and attention-grabbing. With the garden variety below, it won’t be hard to pick the perfect hue for you. Get ready to scorch ’em.
Deborah Lippmann Lipstick
Call Me Maybe | $22
Flirty name, flirtier product. This rich lipstick from manicure master Deborah Lippmann glides on thick and glossy, looking fresh, sexy, and summer-ready. A pink-toned poppy is fabulously sheer yet vibrant. Can we get a matching nail polish?
MAC Matte Lipstick
Lady Danger | $15
A criminally bright poppy that’s downright dangerous, it’s mostly matte with the tiniest hint of creamy lustre. Caught somewhere between red, orange, and pink, this popular MAC pick flatters any skin tone, guaranteed to be among the boldest at the party or on the street. A fail-proof way to get noticed now.
Korres Mango Butter Lipstick
Coral | $18
Attention mango lovers—we’ve found your new favorite lipstick! Balmy and smooth, this butter–based lip color has a hint of mango scent. The pinkish-orange coral color is chock full of shimmering micro particles for enhanced shine—fruitopia in a tube.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream
Coral Fire | $21
This glossy, spicy-sweet smelling shade is full of enough pink-toned coral pigment to light up a room, or at least your face. The neutral undertone makes it a little more unexpected and perfect for day-to-evening looks. And with a formula this moisturizing, you may not ever want to wash it off!
Coral Punch | $5
This creamy, matte lipstick budget pick glides on evenly, delivering a power punch of poppy orange. The eye-catching, electric shade wears long and demands a second glance.
107 | $12
Though it looks beigey-pink in the tube, on the lips this one proved to be a lively warm orange with a subtle shimmer and a candy-sweet scent. For newbies looking to experiment with brighter lips, make this shade your go-to.
Maybelline Color Sensational
885 Vibrant Mandarin | $5.99
One of the most neon shades in the group, this tangerine-fuschia is almost identical to its electrifying tube. An affordable drugstore staple that’s creamy, highly pigmented, and wears well; it looks more expensive than it is. Wear it to light up a hot day.
601 | $30
Creamy, dreamy, and feminine to the max. A pretty poppy that smells like roses and looks the color of fruit punch. By far the prettiest packaging of the lot, we love that everything about this lipstick is floral-inspired, including the tube. It’s a hot and sheer shade that’s meant to be admired.
rms beauty Lip2Cheek
Smile | $36
This creamy paint-on lip color doubles as cheek stain, making it a must have in your makeup bag. The soft coral looks naturally pretty no matter where you dab it—you’ll get healthy glow that’s fast and foolproof. It’s a great summery pick that’s sheer but buildable.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss
Meta | $18
We’re loving the latest lip innovation from our pals at cult-favorite OCC, and this popsicle-inspired shade is a sexy option for a day in the sun or a night out. The no-bleed formula glides on perfectly with the included mini OCC lip brush and stays put with a subtle gloss finish.
Muse | $28
We recently fell for this liquid lipstick, and this coral with a strong orange undertone is no exception. The creamy formula goes on like a gloss but dries matte. It lasts, even on a humid day. You’ll be amazed at how it stays on through errands, meetings, and even your lunch break. It’s marathon makeup in a retro, chic shade.

I love this month’s bag. I am pleased with all of the products I received. I love that they are usually non-toxic, organic products, and it forces me to try products in shades that I might not have otherwise tried. I love the May glam bag!! I got the zoya nail polish in BLU the yaby concealer in buff, the juicy lip gloss in fig,the vanilla island roll on purfume and the pacifica body butter in coconut crushed pearl!!! the whole bag comes to 47$ total if you bought each item individuality. great job ipsy!!! I recommend the Ipsy glam bag to all people trying to find out about new products. I love that the bag only cost $10 but the samples last me for good amount of time! I also love the little cute bags that all of the products come in. Trust me these little bag come in handy. I personally use these bags for holding my hair pins or anything else even a pencil case.
