Best Orange Lipsticks

Orange. It’s one of those colors that can be a little intimidating when it comes to makeup. But as soon as my skin catches a bit of color during those first Summer weeks I find myself reaching for orange toned reds, corals and pinks. I find that they bring out my eyes and add a nice healthy, glow to my complexion.

While I don’t think that I can pull off a true-orange lipstick (most of them just wash me out and I look ridiculous- they literally make me look like a clown) I do love me some subtle and barely-there orange undertones.

I started my orange adventure with a lipgloss: Maybelline’s Color Sensational High Shine Gloss in Captivating Coral is a fairly nicely pigmented tangerine, high gloss color. A nice, sheer option is L‘Oreal’s Colour Riche lipstick in “Fiery Veil”. It looks like very deep and bright orange, but when it’s applied it’s not very pigmented and is actually nice and subtle.

Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipstick in “Siren” is probably one of my favorites. It’s an incredibly creamy and smooth bright orange-only downside is that it fades rather quickly.

MAC “Vegas Volt” is a great, bright, coral shade-it’s a beautiful mix between orange, red and pink. As with most MAC lipsticks, it has a great formula and staying power.

Dior Addict High Shine “Orange Ovation Spotlight Coral” has a very, very glossy finish and a nice orange-y shade. I’ve had this lipstick for ages and always liked using it whenever I went out on a summer night.  It has tiny bits of glitter in it and is very, very glossy, so I think that it’s a bit much to wear during the day.

NYX’s  Matte “Indie Flick” is a heavily pigmented (which I love) bright orange-red. As you guys know NYX Matte Lipsticks are some of my favorites-they have an amazing staying power, great color payoff, and a beautiful, matte finish.

Last, but not least is Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in “Audacious,” which I recently reviewed right here. “Audacious” is a pink shade with, you guessed it, orange undertones. :)
