I love to wear this color in winter, I always go through I whole Lippy every season. Love love this color. It's perfect for me.

I got this as a gwp so I've marked it as dirt cheap. Having said that I probably wouldn't have purchased it as I'm not a massive fan of clinique.
Pros: Lovely and creamy feels great on your lips and on me it's not a bad hue. It's a great colour to use as a base for lip gloss and I do wear it during the day but not at night.
Cons: Its a nice colour but not a hg for nude, pink or deep colour. It's a great product but not anything to rave about.
That being said Clinique, while I'm not a fan, does provide good products and you always know what to expect.

I absolutely love this lipstick! It is definitely my HG. I'm usually not that into lipstick, but I feel like this one is sheer enough for a nice, natural daytime look. It gives a bit of colour, a bit of shimmer (but not too much), and is very moisturizing. It is also perfect for my fair skin (NC 15) and auburn hair. I will definitely repurchase!

Lovely colour, but a little too sheer for me. Probably wouldn't purchase again only because I'm not that into lipsticks. But great for people who love that sheer red look.

The color is pretty pigmented - I don't find it sheer at all! It makes my face look brighter and adds a glow. It wears well throughout the day as well.
I took off the lippie as it is a little too glittery. I love it, otherwise. Clinique always makes great lipsticks in my opinion - I love them!

There's not much to add from what the other reviewers have said about this lipstick... it is sheer, but nice for a natural look. I did find an exciting use for it, though... I bought MAC's Fetish b/c I thought it looked great in the tube and at the time in the store it looked pretty good on me as well. However, the next time I put it on during the day, I thought it was way too dark for me (I'm pale, blonde, blue-eyed), at least for daytime. So I tried putting on a really light coat of Fetish with a coat of Blushing Coral on top - and WOW! The result, for my skin anyway, was fantastic. There's a nice brown undertone from Fetish, but it's not too dramatic b/c it's complemented by the pinkish tones of Blushing Coral. It's perfect for going to school/work when you want a little bit of color but don't want to look like you're going to a bar. Add a tad of gloss to the bottom lip, and voila!, a near-perfect shade!

I love Clinique lipsticks in general. My HG is the Long Last Soft Shine l/s in #Blushing Nude. But now it's summertime I wanted to own some coral/peachy pink lippies so I bought this one. It is a lovely texture, more like a moisturizing lip gloss. It's a hint of light golden peachy pink. I love the moisturizing texture, the peachy pink sheen, the sophisticated, sturdy silver tube. A summer staple!

I hate the Clinique lipstick tubes... I just do. They're hideous, in my opinion.
That aside, this lipstick is HG for me! The color - a warm peachy-pink shot through with gold shimmer - is absolutely gorgeous on my complexion. It's sheer enough that it doesn't look like an obnoxious, over-the-top grandma coral, but not so sheer that I'd consider it a MLBB shade. It's just classy, beautiful and chic, and is great when I don't want nude lips or lips that draw too much attention to themselves. It's fairly moisturizing, too, so it doesn't ever dry out my lips.
I reach for this color at least three times a week; in the summer, at least five.
At $14, the price is pretty great, too.
I've already gone through a tube, and plan to rebuy a third as soon as I think this one will run out.
My only gripes are the total lack of staying power and the hideous silver tube.

I got this as a GWP. It's a lovely pinkish peach with a hint of gold in it. This suits my skintone beautifully - I'm pale with gold undertones. It's moisturising and feels comfortable on the lips. Staying power isn't great but this doesn't bother me. Some have commented on the sheerness of this but I find the level of pigment ok. Packaging quality is the usual high Clinique standards. I find myself reaching for this a lot more than I initially thought I would. It's just a great day-to-day lipstick!

I LOVE this lipstick. Its a wear-everyday, super flattering color on my NW20 skin. The lipstick itself is quite moisturizing and has a great feel to it. I would def repurchase this

Clinique Colour Surge Bare Brilliance lipsticks are sheer, glossy lipsticks filled with a tone of fine shimmer. They vary in pigment between colours with some being more noticable on the lips than others. Blushing Coral is one of the super sheer ones.
It's a gorgeous pinky coral with fine gold shgimmer, making your lips look juicy and plump. The shimmers are noticable but so fine in texture that they don't feel gritty on the lips. In theory it is a stunning product.
In relaity there are two problems with this product for me. Firstly the lack of pigment means that I really have to pack it on to get the colour to show, and I don't have naturally pigmented lips. Secondly the staying power is almost null, so if you don't like reapplying your lipstick you might want to steer clear of this one. I don't really mind reapplying so this is only a minor worry for me.
I probably wouldn't repurchase this particular colour form the Bare Brilliance range, however they have some lovely reds that are calling my name!

A great sheer colour and lovely feel. Looks glossy and kind of like maybe-she's-wearing-a-lipstick-maybe-she's-not - the perfected natural look.

I like this lipstick a lot. I've been looking for a coral lipstick or gloss that doesn't look too bright with my skintone (MAC NW25) and this is it. My lips are pretty pigmented, so with this I only get a hint of coral (what I wanted). Very sheer and smooth, feels like a gloss. Glitter is barely noticeable and does not feel gritty. I reach for this all the time in spring and summer. I think I can keep using it in winter; it's light and sheer enough that it doesn't totally scream "summer" to me.

Brighter than I normally wear, a pretty pink in the tube, but too bright pink on my lips. Pretty shimmer, nice texture & lasting power.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I like this color. I wanted to try a brighter lip than what I usually wear, and this shade is perfect for a summery look. Texture is nice and smooth, the glitter isn't over the top. It is very sheer like a gloss, but without the stickiness of gloss. I prefer this to Stila's guava lipgloss. Doesn't last too long though, I need to reapply often.

"Blushing Coral" is a beautiful shade, which reminds me of all the things I like about the summer - a sheer berry-rose with a shot of peach and peachy/golden shimmer, a gorgeous shade for the warmer months. I'm a big fan of Clinique's lipsticks, but no fan of Clinique's "Color Surge Bare Brilliance" formula. Before "Blushing Coral", I had tried both "Bronze Star" and "Waterviolet"", two shades with a gritty texture and glitter residue. Not so with "Blushing Coral" - this light, comfortable, non-sticky lipstick feels surprisingly smooth, and doesn't leave glitter residue on my lips, or anywhere else. This is a very wearable shade, both in casual and formal settings, but would probably be best worn while wearing a bikini poolside, or worn as a mark on the side of a glass of an ice-cold fruit punch. I absolutely adore this shade, and am not sure what took me so long to try it out. Perhaps good things come to those who wait.

This is a pretty, although on the sheer side, coral-peach shade. It gives my pigmented lips a hint of color with a glossy look.
As with the other Colour Shine Bare Brilliance lipsticks this contains a lot of glitter, I assume to give it the brilliance look. I just find that it is too much glitter on my lips & it seems to wander to areas outside of my mouth. On the plus side, the glitter is not gritty & the lipstick gives your lips a smooth moisturized feel.
I received this in a GWP green tube...which is basically the same size as their silver tube lipsticks, just not in the fancy package.
I'd recommend trying this lipstick formulation if you are a younger gal (teens/20's) or if glitter does not bug you...otherwise, I'd say to try a different one.

I am very warm (C3/NC30) and this sheer peachy-coral looks great on me. It's pretty close to perfect in my view. The opacity, color, shimmer, and feel are all great. Yay!

I never wear lipstick but I got this in a gift bag and I really like it! Because my lips are pretty big, I can't wear too dark colors. But this color looked pretty good on me. It gave my lips a bit of redder tint and a bit of shine. The texture feels pretty good too! it's thick but not too thick =) But it wears off too fast for me and the feeling left behind my lips feels a bit dry. Other than that, I really like this color. I think it's a good color for younger girls around late teens, early 20s. It's not dark and dramatic as some of the older women like to wear. really cute =)

This is nice lipstick and nice shade, but I think a little too pinki, for the coral shade, if I wouldn't be in love with Dior's Ultra Shine lipstick I would give more point to this one.
Stays quit long on the lips, lips feels comfortable moisturized.
