Our latest guest blogger, Ally of Allyson in Wonderland, is an oil and gas professional with a serious eye for great finds. We can’t get enough of her gorgeously crafted blog, where she shares her love for style, travel, and photography. This week she’s giving us a peek into her personal beauty treasure chest—and we’re taking notes.

A few months ago, Tangerine Tango was declared 2012 Pantone Color of the Year. It’s a bright reddish-orange that looks amazing when mixed with other colors, especially coral. I’ve been trying to brighten up my wardrobe and this poptastic shade was just what I needed.
We have officially had enough of winter. Hear that, Mother Nature? If you aren’t going to oblige us with some warmer weather (big thanks for the sunshine, though) we will just have to take matters into our own hands and pretend it’s spring already. The first thing we’re going to do is bust out this season’s favorite new lipcolor: coral. We’ve been excited about this totally wearable slightly pink, slightly orange hue for a while, but we were happy to find out via Facebook that so many of our readers are as well. Here are our top picks, in no particular order. Do you have a favorite that didn’t make the list? If so, tell us in the comments section below!
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Tender: Great for anyone who is looking to experiment with coral, this color is fairly sheer and super moisturizing.
YSL Rouge Volupte in Rose Paris: If you want to go bold, this is the shade to try.
By Terry Gloss in Delectation in Mandarin: It may be gloss, but there is nothing light or subtle about this bright, almost orange wash of color.
Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bellini: Thick and highly pigmented, this shimmery peachy hue looks good on everyone.
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Gotta Dash: Perfectly lightweight and non-sticky in the most classic coral shade.
