Lipstick Week, Day 7: Crushing on Corals

And with this, Lipstick Week will come to a close. Stay tuned for my lipstick collection (gulp) later today, but this is the end for themed lipstick posts for now. For Day 7, I will be talking about some of my favorite corals. Now, it’s a bit hard to define corals, just because a lot of colors can be considered corals.
