Orange Lips For Spring

One of the most exciting and anticipated trends in Spring beauty is a stunning orange lip. Whether it’s bright and beautiful or muted and delicate, an orange lip can add an essence of glamour and style to any look. Personally, I love to pair an orange lip with a glowy complexion and a golden eye or sleek winged liner. I’ve gathered together 4 of my favourite orange lip products and I can’t wait to share them with you. 

The Muted Balm:

The Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya has been a staple in my spring/summer makeup bag for a very long time. The sheer but buildable formula is a breeze to apply at home or on the go and it adds just the perfect hint of colour. I love to pat this into the lips to achieve the appearance of a stain. 

The Glossy Lip:

The Maybelline Colour Elixir in Breathtaking Apricot is a very unique colour, it is a mixture of tones and it comes out as a coral with hints of orange and pink. I find the colour changes in different lights but it is always gorgeous. The formula is also lovely, with the colour of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the hydration of a balm. 

The Peachy Lipstick:

The Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Peche Cosay is new to my collection so I’ve only just began to play around with it, but it is definitely one to remember. The colour is beautiful, a more muted peach that is universally flattering and the formula is to die for. This lipstick is incredibly hydrating and it just glides onto the lips but the best bit is that it lasts for hours! 

The Bold Matte:

The Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious is the boldest of the group and it makes one hell of a statement. The super creamy formula dries down matte, but does not dry out the lips like other matte offerings. It also has pretty incredibly lasting power that is perfect for a night out. 

No matter which formula you choose, an orange lip will take your beauty game to a whole new level. 

Have you tried an orange lip lately? What are your favourite picks?

    I'm such a sucker for bold orange lips and you've chosen some lovely ones! Juicy Papaya is one of my faves and the one you're wearing in the photo (Audacious?) looks stunning on you! I also love MAC Korean Candy and Vegas Volt for bright orange/corals :)

    I loooove that Revlon Matte Balm. I hated it at first but I realised it was because I was applying too much and it looked a lot better on me when I dabbed it onto my lips. It's one of my favourite lip colours for this time of year now!
