The Summer Season: Guerlain Ginger Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Ginger (43) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a one of the nicest ways to wear orange without going full-on orange.   It’s a medium orange-brown color base with soft orange and copper shimmer.  Color is nearly opaque in just one swipe, and it feels lightweight and moisturizing.  There’s a soft shimmer-sheen and natural glossiness–enough where you could skip gloss entirely and let the lipstick shine on its own (and I’m a lip combo fanatic).  Rouge G is the first formula that comes to mind when I think of my favorite lipstick formulas, and Ginger really shows why.

The Summer Season: Chanel Exotic Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Exotic Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant shade of orange with only the slightest hint of coral tones.  It’s mostly orange, but you can tell it’s not your typical true orange, too.   It has a fine dusting of gold shimmer that’s hardly noticeable when worn, but it helps give lips that glossy, full look.  The pigmentation is excellent and the color gives me full coverage.

The Summer Season: Guerlain Gipsy Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gipsy (#41) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a beautiful shade of deep red-tinted orange with tangerine shimmer and sheen.  It’s one of my favorite orange-based lipsticks (and I’m surprisingly not a huge fan of orange lipstick on myself), but this is one I can definitely do.  I love the finish, the opaqueness, and the feel.  Rouge Gs are still one of my top lipstick formulas–they’re smooth, lightweight, wear well, and the colors are so flattering.

The Summer Season: MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a traffic-stopping opaque neon orange.  The name really says it all — it’s bright, in-your-face, and exactly orange.  It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!  It has such a smooth texture with incredibly rich, opaque color.  The finish is creamy, but it has a little bit of a sheen that lights it up.   It really has an amazing feel, and it is one of MAC’s best lipsticks in terms of quality–even if the color may be a little hard to wear!
