Orange Lipstick Collection and Top 5

April 30, 2014

PicMonkey Collage

When I first started my blog I did a review of the orange lipsticks that I had in my collection. At that time orange lipsticks weren't as popular as they are now and they were pretty hard to track down, so I only had a handful. Ever since I did that post, my collection of orange lipsticks has grown. Orange is my favourite lipstick shade, and I thought I would swatch all the shades that I could track down (I think I have a few more in my collection that are MIA) and also mention which shades are my top 5 picks.

I have roughly broken down the shades into three categories - light oranges, bright oranges and dark oranges. Please note that some of these shades might not be available any more.

Lime Crime Cosmopop: This is a light pastel orange, a very creamy lipstick but a very difficult shade to wear as it clashes with many skin tones.

Illamasqua Brink: This is a dry matte peach toned lipstick, I love the shade but it is too dry to wear alone.

Bite Lush Lip Tint Tangelo: This is a nice peach toned lipstick that has a lip balm running through the middle, very comfortable to wear but doesn't last long on the lips. This is my favourite shade of the light orange shades.

Sportsgirl Pout About It in Fruit Tingle: This is a creamy light coral toned matte lipstick, has a more pink tone than the other shades.

Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream in Rio-D: This is a bright neon coral orange matte liquid lipstick. I love the shade but find the formula very drying.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous: This is a sheerer orange balm that has a nice orange stain.

Lime Crime My Beautiful Rocket: This is a true bright orange shade, it is very yellow toned which can clash with some peoples skin tone, but if your want a true orange then this is a good option. This is my favourite out of the yellow toned oranges.

OCC Lip Tar Beta: This is also a bright true orange, but this is quite an old shade and my lip tar has separated.

Innoxa Summer Matte Lipstick in Tangerine: This is also a true orange shade and it is very pigmented but it isn't as comfortable as Lime Crime My Beautiful Rocket.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in 40: This is a bright orange lipstick that has more of a red hint

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange: This is the lipstick that made me obsessed with orange lips! This is creamy, bold, and is one of the most flattering lipsticks that I own.

Top Shop Lip Stick in Hedonist: This is a beautiful matte shade, but it doesn't last long on the lips as it doesn't set.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids in Vibrant Mandarin: This is a great bright drug store orange shade. This does lean more pink compared to the other shades, but it is a very comfortable lipstick to wear.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Lady Danger: Compared to the other shades this looks very red, but on the lips it looks very orange. This is the most perfect orange toned red lipstick. It is matte, long lasting, but it is creamy and very comfortable.

Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Orange 7: This is my most recent orange purchase, and it is a great Autumn/Winter orange shade. It is a burnt vintage orange shade and is very smooth and comfortable.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Long Lasting Lipstick in No 16 Orange Brule: This is also a burnt orange shade that has a matte finish and this liptsick lasts hours and hours.

Now for my top picks of the lipsticks shown above...

#1 MAC Amplified Lipstick in Morange

#5 Lime Crime My Beautiful Rocket

So that's it! I have a soft spot for the bright in your face oranges, but I also have been loving the dark rusty orange shades for the cooler months as they are also great as an alternative to a typical red lipstick. Even though I have a few lighter orange shades, in my opinion they are great as an alternative to a light pink/nude lip, but they aren't as impressive as the brighter shades or the darker shades.

I am thinking of doing posts like this for other shades of lipstick that I have... what shade would you like to see?

  4. Soo loving this! I'm such a sucker for orange lips. Revlon Rendezvous is one of my faves, as is MAC Sheen Supreme in Korean Candy. Looks like I need Morange and My Beautiful Rocket too :)

  5. Guerlain Kiss Kiss looks exactly like the shade I've been looking for (followed closely by the Bobbi Brown #7). Thanks for saving me some legwork! :p

    1. No worries! I am not sure if the Guerlain one is still around (mine is nearly finished so I will have to track a replacement down). But the Bobbi Brown is a permanent shade :)
