50 Shades of Orange Lipstick / Orange Is The New Everything!

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you’ll know that I’ve had an orange lip obsession this summer. Until May I’d never worn orange lipstick but since then I’ve worn nothing else (with the exception of purple to see Prince).

The beauty gods have declared that the orange lip is hot this season. I normally ignore trends and go with what I fancy but orange looks so juicy right now that I wanted in. Of course I couldn’t just go to one shop and pick a lipstick no no. I had to go to ALL the stores and look at ALL the potential orange lipsticks. I truly have swatched 50 shades of orange lipstick – zero exaggeration!

Finding the right shade was a mission though. Some colours looked amazing swatched on the hand (which I know from my lipstick lessons is not the best idea) but felt horrendous on the lips – I’m looking at you Hourglass.

I’ve whittled it down to my favourite five orange lipsticks which I’ll be sharing in forthcoming posts. In the meantime below is an orange lippy swatchfest for any of you still searching for The One:

  2. OMG that is so much orange!!! hahaha I love it. Orange is NOT a great shade for me, I admit…I have MAC Morange which terrifies me (does NOT look good) and I have Tom Ford True Coral (which is GREAT)…it really needs to be more red than orange, and definitely NOT yellow-leaning. But you’ve inspired me to give it another shot again! See what I can come up with 🙂

    • That’s so great to hear. It’s been a challenge for me too trying things I wouldn’t normally but it does give such a boost when you discover something you’d never normally have tried. Oh wow – thank you x
