Orange Is The New Red

At least when it comes to lipsticks. 

Today I bought my first orange lipstick, and let me tell you, I'M IN LOVE!

The one I bought is called So Chaud by MAC, as seen above, and it's a matte that has an intense reddish-orange color.

Now, I'm no beauty expert, but from what I've been seeing all around the runways, I think it's definitely safe to say that orange has taken its place in this season's must have lip color! It's modern and chic in its own way, while still being fun and fresh because it is such a bright color.

It's definitely a little intimidating to try such a bold color, but it's also really fun, and once you've found the perfect shade, it's also really flattering.

According to this article, "Unlike a bold red or plum lip that requires a certain undertone to pull off, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury says that anyone can wear orange." - SEE!!!
I'm going to be heading off to Vegas on Friday for the Pacquiao fight, and I cannot wait to be able to wear this out in the sun! (It's been sunny in my area, but it's really windy)

Here's how the lipstick looks on me:

 
So it's still a little safe since it still looks quite red, which is why my next lipstick goal is the more daring Morange by MAC (As you can see I like MAC a lot - but just for their lipsticks)
From the reviews I've read and seen online, the color I've chosen (So Chaud) is a pretty good color for most skin tones, other choices I would suggest are: Lady Danger - MAC; more of a coral-red, and
Vegas Volt - MAC; was about to get this one, this one looked like a creamier and more wearable version of So Chaud. It's also more on the coral side

Also, bellasugar.com and handbag.com both have awesome choices for orange lipstick.

Enjoy these images to further inspire and encourage you to go get a bottle of orange lipstick for yourself!







So what do you guys think? Will you be trying out this bold color? I can't wait to read what everyone thinks!

  2. Wow, I have been wanting to give this a go, but am too scared to! It definitely looks great on you, thanks for posting that collage which gives you an idea of how the shade looks on every one. I look most like the girl on the very bottom right, so looks like it can work for me! Yay!

  8. That colour really complements your skin tone. I love it, brown lipsticks really appeal to me lately.
    I've never been a lipstick fan, but ever since I got a beigey - auburn one for my birthday I can't stop wearing it.

  16. I see this color seems to be very fashionable at the moment but I'm sure about trying it on myself. I think it's great because is strong, bright, energic, but I wouldn't wear orange make up, maybe a bag..

  30. I don't wear lipstick at all, but it seems like orange is a killer new color and you're right, very modern. Maybe someday I'll branch out and wear makeup but not just yet...

  31. I love the way this looks on the runway, but I'm not sure how it will look in real life. I have yet to see somebody rock the orange in person.
