Up until I started dyeing my hair in the red spectrum, I rarely wore orange lipstick - with cool ashy blonde hair for most of my pre 50's years, it wasn't the least bit flattering, but I've certainly embraced it in this most recent decade of my life, and even more so now that my tresses are more orangey than anything else. It's super cheerful, and I especially favour it in the Autumn and Winter to bring some warmth and sunshine into an otherwise dark day. There's a pretty good variety here, from reddish and slightly pinky tones to those with more of a gold or bronze content. As is usual for me, these range in price from $2 (BOE Beauty) to around $20 for the Revlon. I honestly don't think too much about what I pay for a lipstick, so long as I love the colour, and it wears comfortably, but it's a rare thing for me to spend more than $25 - there's way too many out there that I haven't tried yet (lol!) so I have to draw the budget line somewhere ♥...

To be honest, orange can be quite tricky to wear successfully, but I reckon it comes down to finding the right one for your skin tone, and it makes a huge difference it you can pair it up with an accessory or two...
SO hard to nominate which of these takes the number one spot - I wear the MBA Spiced Pumpkin the most often, but the Australis sanfrandisco is a close second, even though it makes my pout look decidedly pruney ♥
In case you missed them, you'll find nudes, bricks and bronzes HERE, corals, mauves & pinks HERE, reds HERE, and berries & purples HERE ♥
Take care of you,
