My Orange Lipstick Collection

June 6, 2012 Melbourne VIC, Australia

I love an orange lip, so here are some my favourite orange lipsticks from my collection. Orange has been my new red for the past few years, and I think more people should take the plunge and give orange a go!

(NOTE: I have done an updated orange lipstick collection post here)


And here are some swatches, with flash and without flash



From left to right: Lime Crime in Cosmopop, Diana De Silva Cosmetics in 312 Vega, Lime Crime in My Beautiful Rocket, Top Shop Lip Stick in Hedonist, MAC in Morange, Make Up For Ever in Rouge Artist Intense 40, OCC Lip Tar in Beta, and Guerlain in Orange Brule No 16


Here are some swatches on my lips:

Lime Crime in Cosmopop
When I first saw this lipstick online I was obsessing over getting it for months. Finally I took the plunge and bought it along with My Beautiful Rocket and Airborne Unicorn. Its a nice creamy texture and very pigmented, but I find that it clashes with my skin tone. The only way I wear it is with another orange to make it a little darker. I envy the people who have the colouring to wear this lipstick! If you are interested in giving this lipstick a go, you can buy it here.

This is some horrible cheap lipstick I got when I was debating whether or not I should get Cosmopop. I got this for like $2 off ebay. It smells cheap, the packaging looks cheap, but its surprisingly a very wearable orange. Unlike some of the other lipsticks shown, I feel comfortable wearing this to work. I should have bought two.

Along with the lip tar, this is probably the most true orange of all the lipsticks I have. It is a very yellow based orange. It's creamy, pigmented, lasts a fair while. When I wear this, I will usually use the lip tar as a base, which acts like a stain, and then I wear this over the top. A winning combination that lasts ages. I love this lipstick, if you want to know where to get in online, you can buy it here

Top Shop Lip Stick in Hedonist
This colour is so beautiful, its really bright, it's matte and I love it. Unfortunately the lipsick does not stay in place and its really dry! This colour is very similar to MAC's Morange, so I tend to only use this as a base for that lipstick, which is creamy and holds it in place.

MAC in Morange
This is the first orange lipstick I ever got and its still my favourite. This lipstick is what got me hooked on orange lipstick. It's vibrant, it's pigmented, smells nice, and when it fades it fades into a nice coral colour. I highly recommend.

Make Up For Ever in Rouge Artist Intense 40
This is my most recent purchase and I haven't had a change to wear it much. It's really smooth, has a really strong colour and I'm excited to test it out more. It looks similar to Morange but is slightly darker than Morange, and not as vibrant. So if you like Morange, but don't like the slight neon look it gives, try this one. 

OCC Lip Tar in Beta
This is a very true orange. Lip tars are great, they last forever and act like an opaque stain. I find that they are a little drying, so I do like to put a lip gloss or a lipstick over it. This one is paired perfectly with My Beautiful Rocket by Lime Crime.

Guerlain in Orange Brule No 16
This is a super old lipstick that my mum gave me because she found it too orange to wear. It is a dark orange matte lipstick that lasts forever. This is my Ruby Woo of orange lipstick. I get heaps of compliments when I wear this, it's perfect if you like a lot of colour, but not the bright vibrant colour that often comes with orange lipsticks. I would be comfortable wearing this one to work too. It is a little drying because it's matte, but its worth it.

  4. I'm obsessed with orange lips at the moment! Thinking of buying both cosmopop & MAC's morange. Are there any you've found in drugstore brands? I like Revlon's matte balm in mischevious (i think thats the name).
