The Orange Lip

Recently I've come to realise that I have quite the obsession, for wearing an orange lip with a neutral eye. Today I thought that it would be nice to share just a few of my favourites with you all.

No messing about today guys, lets jump straight in with my first pick, bearing in mind that these are in no particular order to preference.

This is one of the Revlon Color Burst Matte Balms in the shade 235 Mischievous, a gorgeous shade, a bit lighter in tone and definitely much more everyday appropriate than some of the others which I'm going to be showing today. These retail at £7.99 so not too pricey for a drug store brand. I do suggest applying this to the lips after having already applied a lip balm, as they do tend to apply a little patchy even though they feel very moisturising on the lips for a Matte product.

This next one is again one of the Revlon Color Burst Matte Balms, but this time its in the shade 245 Audacious, just by looking at the colour in the tube, I don't think it would appear too different from the previous Matte Balm that I showcased, however swatched on the lips it definitely comes out quite a bit bolder, but brighter.

Now this next little number from my orange lippy list, is one of the Revlon Color Burst Lipsticks in the shade Peach. This is one which used to get me very excited, its an old favourite which I used to wear almost everyday, its one which I've recently rediscovered in my collection, and I'm so pleased that I have. Although its still an orangey/peachy shade, I feel like its also a little more brown toned than the rest...

I've just realised whilst trying to find a link for you, that they don't make the Color Burst Lipsticks any more :( I'm sorry for those of you who never got a chance to try, but if anyone out there has an old one of these lying around in they're stash, you should definitely dig it out, and pop it onto your lips! 

Don't be worrying though gaaals, this next one is definitely a lippy which is still shown on many shop shelves! It is Rimmel Londons Apocalips Lip Lacquer in 500 Luna, how lovely is this shade? I mean comon guys! Its so moisturising, and acts almost like a stain after a while, I've found that no matter how long I leave this one on the lips, you can still feel that moisture seeking through. This retails at a mere £6.49.

This last one is my favourite! Its MAC's Lipstick in A33 Vegas Volt which comes in at £15.50, although its the most expensive (I only own a handful of these myself) you can definitely see and feel that quality, from the second that you look at that clean, sleek packaging, to when you look at how shiny, soft almost the product looks in the bullet, to when you apply it onto your lips, oh my, its an Amplified formula, and there is nothing I can fault about this lippy, it so so smooth, creamy, moisturising, somewhat long wearing, pigmented, you can wear it sheerer by applying a little and just smoothing it out with your finger, or you can really go all out and build that colour up, which does so beautifully. Honestly....I could go on forever!
