I am a huge fan of the orange lip, especially for summer. Recently we have seen orange lips popping up all over the place, especially on the red carpet. This is one trend I am all about!
MAC Morange– Mac Morange is my go to orange for sure! When I first went orange hunting, I headed straight for my local MAC Counter. I tried on a few different shades (I swear according to MAC there’s like 10 different shades of orange) This lipstick is an Amplified Cream. I actually purchased a few other Amplified Creams after this one. The texture glides on smooth while still looking like a true orange, dare I say even have some matte to it. It is a true bright orange, and definitely a little on the wild side. If you are looking for a real bright in your face orange to take this trend on head first, you have met your match!
NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil– This color is more of an orange red, but it still tilts more towards the orange side. In my opinion, It is a much more wearable shade for every day. I know I talk about these pencils all the time, because they’re THAT good. This one is part of the velvet matte line, and it pulls a little bit tough when being put on your lips. There’s something slightly missing when it comes to application to make it an absolute 10. However, the color is stunning and it ends up looking beautiful on the lips. Whenever I wear this shade, I catch myself oogling my reflection in the mirror. It’s still on the orange trend while producing the mysteriousness of a fiery red.
Revlon Hot Coral– I am a huge fan of the Classic Revlon Lipsticks. They glide on like butter, have amazing staying power, beautiful colors, and are high quality at a drugstore price. This color is pretty much exactly what it sounds. A hot orange coral! It comes out beautiful on the lips, keeping them smooth and hydrating and pulling off the trend seamlessly. This is the best bet for trying to pull off Orange without breaking the bank!
Nars Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil– How could I do a post on orange without mentioning this Lip Pencil? Like Morange, it is a true, in your face Orange. The Satin Lip Pencils tend to glide on easier than the Velvet ones, which I feel like is the only difference between the two. It gives me that smooth perfect precision that I look for in a lipstick, but have found in a lip pencil. They can also be used as a lipliner, so you can use it in conjunction with the other lipsticks mentioned and still get a beautiful orange!
