Spring time is the ideal season to bring forth your beauty A-game in hopes of making a major style statement. During a time filled with drab colors and dreary skies, a fabulous new beauty trick can go along way when it comes to putting an extra perk in your snow-covered step. Orange lips are one of those fabulously versatile beauty looks that add maximum glamour to an ensemble with very little effort, rendering it among one of our absolute favorite ways to make a splash. With an orange to flatter any skin tone, we’re rounded up our list of the 5 hottest orange lipsticks to take you confidently through the spring season looking nothing less than fierce.
Pale-skinned ladies have their pick of the orange lipstick litter, but bright orange flatter this complexion most. Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Purty Persimmon is completely comparable to those super expensive high-end brands, so stock up on this shade and other brights if you’ve got a strict beauty budget in mind. We adore this lippie not only for its hardcore pigmentation and price, but for the long lasting wear that holds for hours. You may not be able to smootch your boytoy all day long without reapplying, but just a few blots makes this stuff seriously stay put. At under $3 a pop, this option is your best bet for a fun and frugal buy that’s sure to become a regular in your cosmetics arsenal.
While Chanel, Tom Ford and YSL all make killer orange options, we’re beauty addicts around these parts, so we can’t afford to spend too much all in one place. For a high meets low option that’s just as fabulous as the expensive brands without skimping on quality in the least, try Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in A-Go-Go. A matte finish, a vibrant hue and a price tag of under $20 makes this a perfect alternative to those break-your-piggy-bank beauty brands.
We’re big fans of matte around here, but a little shine once in a while never hurt anyone. Your local CVS is just as fabulous place to shop for makeup as your neighborhood Sephora, with brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline among our all-time faves. For a shiny pout rich with color, try L’Oreal Paris’s Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Orange Tempo. So luxe!
