Hey guys, gals and everyone in between!
I’ve just recently jumped on the orange lip trend, but I thought I’d share with you my favorites! <As a natural redhead it can be hard to find flattering shades sometimes. I’ve got four shades for you, and three of them are drugstore brands so they’ll be easy on your wallet!
This is what my lips look like in their natural glory-for reference. Some of these shades cover up my lip freckles, but others don’t. None of these images have been edited, so all the colors are as close as you can get on a computer! ❤
This is the pinkiest (it’s a word…we’re going with it) of my oranges. It is ‘Hippie Chic‘ MLS03 by NYX. It’s one of their Mat shades (yepp Mat not Matte) I have a couple others of these and I must say I love them all! This color is a bit chalky, but I love it none the less. I find NYX at Target, online, or at Ulta.
This is ‘Mischievous‘ 235 by Revlon. This shade is in their Colorbust Matte Balm collection. Mischievous is actually the first orange lipstick I bought! It does dry more matte than pictured, but it’s not what I consider a ‘true’ matte. IE it’s nowhere near as dry as a Retro Matte from MAC It has a minty scent and lasts a good while. You can find Revlon at almost all drugstores.
Revlon strikes again! This time it’s ‘Rendezvous‘ from their Colorburst Balm Stain collection. I love this color because you can build it up. I applied a few layers here, but you can apply less and just get a wash of color. And of course the best thing about these, is that when they wear off they leave a wonderful stain behind!
I just started buying higher end lipstick, and this color is a recent addition to my collection. This is ‘Sushi Kiss‘ by MAC. It’s a satin and feels great on the lips. It’s not too heavy, which is great for Arizona summers. It’s not as bright as the rest of my collection, but it’s not quite a pastel. You can buy MAC in store, online, or in some JC Pennys. Here are the colors swatched! Top is with a flash,and bottom is without.
Left to Right: Hippie Chic, Mischievous, Rendezvous, and Sushi Kiss.
I hope you enjoyed the sneak peak into my lipstick collection! Let me know what other orange shades I should investigate!
