Latest Love: Peach Lips

OK so orange lips have been pretty popular in magazines and such for a couple of years now.
Ever since they arrived I have been vehemently not excited about this trend whatsoever…but I was also vehemently against skinny jeans when they first showed back up from the 80’s and I thought ombre hair was none so attractive when I first laid eyes on it…

What I’m trying to say is that sometimes the style gets to me eventually if it hangs around long enough and while I still will say that orange is SO not my color it must be getting in my blood because I am LOVING peach. (a gateway to orange perhaps?)
I love how it brings out green eyes, makes tan skin look so tan and rich and fair skin look so pretty and pastel.
It brings out green and blue eyes and looks gorgeous in stick or gloss form.

I think maybe you should jump on the bandwagon too. We can just promise ourselves we’ve always liked peach and it’s not just hype getting in our head…because we have always liked peach…right?

    Oh yes “peach” and “summer” totally go together! Do you have any recommendations for medium skin tones.. the ones above seem suitable for paler lovelies!

      I’ve seen Honolulu Honey recommended time after time for medium skin tones in InStyle magazine…. I have always wanted to try it but that price tag!!!Maybe the Revlon smoked peach is close in color?

    Cara, I am new to the idea of trying new things with my makeup. I’ve always been a “keep it natural” sort of girl. This summer we are joining a pool, and although I love the idea of sun and kids playing, I’m not super keen on spending days in public wet, with no makeup on. Can you recommend anything in the way of waterproof (which I have been afraid of) eye makeup. Maybe some mascara that won’t run down my face will make me feel a bit more like myself. Also, any tips for us brown eyed girls would be awesome. Love the blog, it’s making me look at makeup as something to have fun with. Thank you. Katy

    Another great peach lip gloss is NYX butter gloss in Apple Strudel. I’m loving their butter glosses; great color, nice smooth texture (not sticky), and inexpensive (Ulta carries them for $5.00/each). They won a Spring 2013 makeup O-Ward from Oprah magazine.

    Peach is pretty, but I still love my shimmery gold-pinks! Nymphette will always be my go to for summer 🙂

    Would any of these work well with darker skin tones? Any peachy suggestions for WOC?

    I love peachy colored lips. Most especially if the peach is a little more on the pink tone side. I am still not so much into the orange lipstick, yet!!!

    Ok. I have to chime in. I LOVE your blog! You are ao talented and I love your style. Now I remember you saying to tell you if there is something you should know about that we love. Have you ever used “kerasal”. It is an exfoliating moisturizing cream for heels. It is in the most random 70’s looking tube but it is seriously like magic in a bottle. It’s on the pricier side (like$8) but you will be amazed. You just get it at Walmart or walgreens. You will notice a difference in like 3 days. It’s crazy. Just thought you might want to know. Hope your feeling good.

    I also love peachy lipsticks but I haven’t had the heart yet to try an orange one… Mac Sweet & Sour would be a nice try 🙂 xx Alessia

    Yesss!!!! I’ve been wanting to try this but have yet to find the perfect color. Maybe it’s one of these guys. Found a similar nail polish shade from Ulta. What is it about this shade that just screams summer?? 🙂

    I have been loving Revlon Color burst lip butter in Peach Parfait. It’s a darker peach but also very sheer, just the right amount of pop for my brown eyes! And Baby Lips in Peach Kiss is great too!

      Yes, yes, yes to Revlon’s lip butter. It’s my go-to peach-y lip color. I just have to remember to use it sparingly or it looks like goo. Love it.

      I agree! Actually, my boyfriend was the one that suggested I try it, and I prefer it over all of my pink lip colors! He picked well!

    Back in the old days they did your colors, being that I am a Spring, peach and coral work great for my blonde coloring. You would definitely be a Winter which means cool colors look better on you. Like deep blues etc. It was pretty amazing .

    If you’re fair skinned, and per chance a redhead, try my newest finds: Loreal Balm in ‘Caring Coral’ (a very sheer pinkish coral with nice shine) and Butter London’s ‘Mush,” similar to ‘Caring Coral” but more on the orange side and very matte. I really can’t go all the way to a wild tangerine or an orange on steroids, so those two are my baby steps. And at $8.00 for the Loreal, I’ll take that one in a hurry! (It is soo lovely.)

    I love a peachy lip (did that sound weird? Sorry!), especially for summer! Also, Cara, I would like to inform you that maskcara is officially in my top 3 most visited websites, according to google chrome (topped only by google and facebook). Love your blog!

    Lol, I detested skinny jeans when they first came out too! And I did’t know ombre was a hairstyle – I thought it was due to bad dye jobs, lol!

    My favorite lipsticks for peach lips are Ilia Beauty in Dizzy and Kjaer Weis in Sweetness, and they are made with all natural and organic ingredients. They are gorgeous! I have some swatches up on my blog – Natural and Organic Peach Lipsticks
