ORANGE

by Anne Roshie


   The hottest lip color this Spring season is Orange. You can’t miss seeing it on the runway, magazine spreads, red carpet, and on Instagram feeds. Orange as a lip color can be a little intimidating but once in a while, its good to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.

                                                                                                        Urban Decay's BANG lipstick.

I am absolutely crazy about this urban decay lippie. It is somewhat matte with red vibrant undertones which make the orange really pop. The best part about it is that it lasts really long, so frequent touch-ups won't be necessary. You can get this lippie from Ulta or Sephora.

If you don't want to be really out there with the bold orange color. This lippie is for you. It is very soft and subtle with some sheen.  You can found Maybelline products at your neighbourhood pharmacy store.

Vegas Volt is not really orange but a lipstick  on the peachy,corally side. It leans heavily on the pink side with orange tints. I have had it for quite sometime now and I usually like to  rock it with my vintage dresses when am going for the lady like looks as seen here on Pink October. I added it to my Orange faves because I consider it well, part of the family.

     Ever walked into a store and found yourself perusing through the beauty aisle? I tend to do that quite often. I am drawn to the beauty aisle like steel on magnet. Sonia Kashuk is a brand that I discovered on a random grocery stop at Target and truth be told, I love her products.

      This satin luxe lip color in Red Orange is absolutley divine. It is smooth to apply and the pigments are everything. I will be adding some of her other lipsticks to my little beauty bar.

   With Orange lipsticks, I usually buy shades that have some red in it. A lip liner comes in handy when putting on an orange lipstick. A lipliner is important because it gives your lips definition, makes the color last longer, and for bright colors like reds and oranges, ensures that the color won't bleed and spread all over your lips. I used a red lipliner for all four lipsticks, applying it all over my lips prior to the lipstick. The red lip liner was my preference, you might choose to go for an orange one but that is up to you.

There you have it ladies, my four Orange faves. Will you be adding an orange lippie to your stash of lipsticks? 

Thanks for stopping by.
