Orange lips, Part 1

Orange you glad I didn't say banana? I'm here all week folks. Don't forget to tip your bartender... [insert laugh track here]

Now seriously, folks...

I have loved orange lips for the past few summers. I think that deeper red-oranges and orangey-corals work best on me but I've definitely rocked the occasional tangerine and straight-up orange lip. I feel like anyone can pull orange off if they chose the right tone for their coloring.

I have so many orange lip products that I decided to break this segment into two separate post: 1) Sheer and/or glossy formulas and 2) Full-on lipsticks & mattes. Today we'll look at my sheer and/or glossy picks.

R to L: as listed below

**Swatches to the right are in the same order as the product pic above/list below.**

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival Spirit (LE): Super sheer balm-like formula in an orange Popsicle shade.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball: Sheer formula in a true coral shade
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush: Sheer glossy formula is a shade pretty similar to the NYX pick above.
L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine in Coral Tattoo: Glossy stain formula in a true coral.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler: Pigmented gloss in a orange-leaning coral.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous: Sheer balm in a tangerine shade.
Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Cannes Crush: Glossy stain in a pinky-peachy-coral (how's that for description!?)

 I favor the lighter weight formulas when it's super hot-- Revlon's Carnival Spirit and Pixi's Coral Crush have been favorites this summer. Do you rock the orange lips? What's your favorite sheer and/or glossy orange?
