Orange lips, Part 2

Sometimes you want more coverage than a gloss or a balm can give so you reach for a full-on lipstick. I really like pigmented cream and matte finishes for creating that pop of color. Let's check out some of my favorite orange lipsticks!

From right to left:
NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Coralista: The formula is lightweight and has subtle shimmer which isn't really noticeable on the lips. The shade is a muted tangerine.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in Rossetto #12: The formula is creamy and pigmented. The shade is a true coral. Think Mad Men's Joan Holloway.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Sweet Nectar: The formula is creamy and opaque. The shade is a true orange.
Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Coral Crush: This formula is lightweight and less opaque than the Rimmel or Milani lipsticks above. The shade is a mid-toned pinky-coral.
Wet'n'Wild Megalast Lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold: The formula is pigmented and matte yet not overly drying (I love the Megalast formula!). The shade is a neon melon.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick: This is a pigmented matte with a creamy feel. The shade is a bright orangey red.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious: This is a lightweight matte formula, not quite as pigmented a the Wet 'n' Wild. The shade a corally mid-toned orange.

Swatch fest:

There's such a wide variety of shades and formulas available-- there's sure to be a orange out there for everyone. Give this trend a try. It's not as scary as you might think. A word of caution: orange can make your teeth appear slightly yellow so make sure to brush with a whitening toothpaste if you're planning on rocking the orange pout.

Have you tried orange lips? What's your fave?



  1. Thank you for this review! Orange and coral happen to be my fave lip colors! Could you also possibly do swatches but on your lips just to get a better idea of what these lippies can look like? Thanks! I was also wondering if you've heard abt Vain Pursuits before? I've been hearing a lot abt them and would love a second opinion before buying! They're similar to ipsy but for skin products!

    1. I've been looking for a review on Vain Pursuits as well... Curious to see how their products work!
