The orange lip edit

I feel like orange lips scare a lot of people so today I thought I would take you through some of my favourites whether you are a newbie orange wearer or are seasoned in the practice then there will be something for you in this line up.
First off I picked out one of the Body shop's Matte lip liquids in the shade Cali Gerbera. These have a similar texture to the NYX soft matte lip creams but in my opinion are a little less drying. They sit on the lips really nicely and are just a fab no faff lip product. It is more on the pinky tone than some of today's other picks but is still definitely a bold orange although it can be blotted down to a more subtle shade. Next up we have Gerard cosmetics Hydra matte liquid lipstick in the shade Mercury rising which is an incredibly vibrant red toned orange. This isn't one for those testing the orange waters but more for those who are fully committed. I love the formula of these as as the name may suggest they are both matte and hydrating.
If you want a more pink toned very slight orange hint the Barry M 151 is a really pretty shade, there definitely is a hint of orange however it isn't anything too intense so perfect for if you want to introduce yourself in the colour slowly. Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick in In love with Ginger is a beautiful more glossy lip. Don't get me wrong it isn't the easiest lipstick to deal with and eating in it will spread it all over your face but if you are just wanted to wear it for a small amount of time it is gorgeous. It's a little more manageable when blotted but then doesn't have the beautiful glossy finish so it depends what you are looking for.

Another Rimmel pick is the Kate Moss matte lipstick in 110 which is a more coral orange. I love the formula of these lipsticks as they look matte yet are incredibly comfortable and moveable on the lips. Out of all the matte formulas I've mentioned today this one is definitely the least orange so if you are more comfortable with pinks then this may be a good place to start. Out of the lot the Maybelline colour sensational lipstick in Shocking coral is the least orange out of the bunch. It is a gorgeous almost fluro pink which is incredible in the summer with super tanned skin. This is a more comfortable formula and isn't dissimilar to the Mac Satin formula so it's very comfortable but has a good lasting power.
Out of the lot the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lip in Flamethrower is my favourite. It is a very true orange and is definitely not one for the faint hearted. It does make the teeth look a little yellow as it has more of a yellow base however if you are like me that isn't something that bothers you then I would 100% suggest giving this one a go. Finally in today's lineup is the L'Oreal Lip paint matte in Tangerine Vertigo, I still can't figure out how I feel about this formula as it is almost trying to be a gel but then it also kind of feels like the Body shop ones. Due to the gel like texture this isn't as pigmented as I imagined so although it isn't for me it may be good for someone looking to try an orange lip.
So that's it for today. I'd love to know what your favourite colours are for Summer.
