Orange lipstick has slowly risen in popularity over the past few years, partially influenced by J. Crewâ€™s print ads, and Iâ€™d like to think itâ€™s also because I keep pressuring my friends to try it. Though orange lipstick may seem intimidating at first, thereâ€™s a color for every skin tone. I get bored wearing reds and pinks all the time, so orange is a fun change. These are the lipsticks Iâ€™ve tried, in order of how easy they are to wear:
Chanel Rouge Coco in Rebelle
This combination lipstick/lip gloss formula is a great color for those who are shy about wearing orange lipstick. It is sheer and buildable. Itâ€™s flattering on any skin tone.
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Fruity Orange
This particular shade was my first foray into orange lipstick. It is a lighter orange and looks great paired with a white outfit. For girls who are afraid of orange, Chanelâ€™s Rebelle or Givenchyâ€™s Fruity Orange are a very good starting point before you begin to experiment with darker colors.
Bite Beauty Luminous CrÃ¨me lipstick in Cin Cin
Cin Cin tastes great and features resveratrol, an anti-aging property derived from wine. Itâ€™s very creamy formula, which means it wonâ€™t stay on through meals. However, the color is so fantastic that Iâ€™ll put up with it! The lipstick has a good amount of slip and feels very moisturizing.
Chanel Rouge Allure in Coromandel
This is a loud orange red color that screams summer. I like pairing Coromandel with Nars Niagara, which is a light coral color. The pale color helps temper the intensity of Coromandel. I recommend using Niagara as a base and then dabbing on Coromandel until you achieve the color you desire. Chanel also sells a lip liner that matches Coromandel perfectly.
