spring crush – orange lipstick

after this winter’s deep chill and snow frenzy, i’m ready to step out this spring with a bold, fun look! i’ve always been slightly obsessed with lip color – but i’m really looking forward to trying an orange lip this season! i recommend trying out the look at sephora, or buying a drugstore brand (which can be awesome!) before splurging on a more high end brand – especially since the orange is a bit wild šŸ™‚

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya ($25)



This is a high-impact color and glides on your lips smoothly – great product. I am a huge fan of NARS!

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Toast ($24)


This shade is a burnt orange – not as bright but still a fun color. You can purchase this brand at Sephora.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Vibrant Mandarin ($8)


Here is a less expensive but just as lovely orange lipstick. If you’re a fan of a loud lip, then this is a great color for you!

But how do you wear an orange lipstick?Ā My best recommendation is to keep your eyes bare. A little mascara is fine, but heavy eye makeup may be too intense paired with the orange lipstick.

Have you tried orange on your lips? Any favorite brands / colors?

    Love this look, can’t wait to try it out for Spring Break. I was going to purchase Morange by MAC but now maybe I’ll try out Vibrant Mandarin to make sure I can pull it off before investing in a more high end lipstick
