I LOVE this lipstick! I have it in three different colors. I find that the staying power is pretty good, the packaging is good, and for NZ$9 its not a brilliant buy! It is a lovely, creamy, smooth formula that applies easily, highly pigmented and not drying at all. There is a wide variety of colors, and I will definitely be buying more!

Coral Colours is an Australian brand available in Australia and New Zealand (not sure if anywhere else).
I bought it from my local Pharmacy at about a THIRD of the price of a Revlon lipstick.
The quality is pretty good - not as drying as some more expensive lipsticks i have tried, and they have some very nice colours to choose from.
My favourite colour from the Moisturising Lipstick range are Dusky Rose, a lovely MLBB shade, it could even be compared to Chanel Mademoiselle (more toned down though). I upload a photo to look at.
I also own the colour Silky Suede which is lighter in colour and also lovely.
The ingredients in these lipsticks are very very natural, and you can actually feel that it's natural on your lips. No need to re-apply often due to lipstick actually drying out your lips!
The Coral Colours lipsticks are very affordable and a wonderful way to stock up on a wide range of colours, and to have an extra in your handbag, etc. I have at least 5 of their lipsticks :-)
When my mum comes to visit from overseas i will definitely be taking her to check this range out!!!

Coral Colours products tend to be cheap quality aimed at the budget makeup market. That being said, these lipsticks are quite good. Application is smooth & wear is ok. I found I needed to top up after a few hours. I find coral colours lipsticks to be quite drying across the board & this one was no exception.
The price is good however & there are some fantastic colours to choose from.
But yeah, for the same price you can get an equally good Australian brand that makes excellent moisturising lipsticks - Australis (my personal opinion. I'm not associated to that company in any way)

This is a review for an Australian brand called Coral Colours. I am reviewing their Moisturising lipstick but will give some information on their other lip products also.
Moisturising Lipstick - These are similar in texture and wear to Maybelline or Covergirl lipsticks but are only $8AU. Be prepared to reapply regularly during the day, but at least you won't need to use lip balm as well. These will definitely not dry your lips out. There is a good range of colours in both creme and frost and I feel that everyone would be able to find at least one or two colours that would suit them. At this price, a great way to indulge in colours you may not buy otherwise, or just have extra tubes of a colour you use all the time, so there's always one in your handbag.
I am on my second tube of two colours and so will review these separately.
Sunrise Red (creme)- This is a clear orange undertoned red with moderate staying power. It can be quite difficult to get an orange toned red, so many of them have blue or brown undertones. Even though this is one of the moisturising lippies, it is quite thick and not particularly moisturising. I have found this in both tubes and the testers, so I can only assume it is because of the level of pigment used. It tends to wear off fairly evenly but can leave small flaky bits behind.
Candy Nude (creme) - This is my HG MLBB colour, a warm toned pinky brown with a slightly glossy finish. This one does leave lips moisturised, wears off fairly evenly, never leaves flakey bits behind, but does need to be reapplied fairly often. The easiest way to overcome this is simply to fill in your lips with a nude lipliner. Personally at $8 a tube I am happy to reapply and don't bother doing this.
Sheer Lipstick - In my opinion, there's not much difference between these and the moisturising lipsticks. Good coverage, only slightly sheer, not many colours, but good if you can find the colour that suits you. Also $8AU.
Matt lipsticks - not much fun at all, drying with a hard cakey finish and they wear off very unevenly. Don't bother. Also $8AU.
Stayput lipsticks - a one step lipstick like the old Revlon Colorstay. Mainly neutral colours and very drying on the lips. Another one to leave alone. Around $10AU.
Lipgloss - a very ordinary product and very few colours to choose from. Buy something cheap and cheerful from your local $2 shop instead. Around $10AU.
