Coral Reef is the perfect coral colour. It is not as vibrant as the some of the product photos make is seem, the description of 'muted coral with honey undertones' is more accurate. The formula isn't drying, but it is worth prepping your lips with a scrub beforehand because it tends to stick to the cracks of dry lips. Really, just try out a few different application techniques to see what works best for you. I tend to apply a small amount of product with the tube and then work it in with a brush. The lipstick tube is absolutely beautiful, it has a vintage vibe and is well made. I am NW20 and it probably wouldn't look nice on darker skin colours. NARS Sex Appeal blush is the perfect matching.

I have only had this TM for a week but am already in love with it, I was colour matched to Alaska, which suited my NW20 skin tone perfectly. Since my skin is generally quite nice, I only apply this product over my nose and chin using my fingers. It is tinted enough to cover my slightly red nose and the blemishes on my chin but feels barely there. I use a light suncream underneath (to protect the parts of my face that I don't use it on) and my Shu Uemura loose powder over the top-- the TM doesn't need powdering down but I like how my skin feels with it on. I am from Australia, so it was exorbitantly priced ($68)-- if you can afford it, buy it!
This cleanser left my skin feeling tacky and unclean. My skin type is normal and it has never had this reaction to a product before. Thankfully, I bought this in the sample size. The packaging is darling and i really like the branding, but there are much better products out there. Not worth it.
