My HG favorite lipstick is an orange one! It’s LUSH’s Santa Baby lip tint! It’s matte, pigmented, and wears like iron. It’s a holiday available only shade. But I just picked up my yearly tube of it this week 😀

I just looked it up online and it is pretty. The main problem I’ve had with every LUSH product I’ve tried is the strong smell. It says cinnamon, which sounds ok, but how strong is the fragrance?

Hey!!!! It’s actually cocoa cola scented!!! It smells like I just poured a glass of cola and sniffed it!haha.

It’s pretty strongly scented when you open the cap. But once it’s applied I can’t smell it at all!!!

I plan on picking up lady danger by Mac. I saw a relative wearing it and it’s beautiful. Just hoping it looks good on my fair skin. The relative I saw wearing it is Cuban (relative by marriage) so her complexion is darker. I have to give it a try though because it’s a beautiful shade. I’ve been wanting a orangey red.

Another MAC NC20 (or NW20) here, and Lady Danger looks fabulous. Oddly, I don’t think of it as an orange, but more of a near-fluorescent light red.

I think it’s the kind of shade that can read different on different people. It’s very much an orange-red on me. I never thought I could wear a color that leans orange, but this one works. Corals look hideous on me!

Ooh, love orange. My issue is when they sneak in (IMO, they don’t really) pink undertones, and the ‘stick becomes a coral/orange. LQ Jungle Queen, Bite Blood Orange. Suspect Lady Danger is that way, but will have to check. Readers sat it’s a red orange. Will T intragoogle. So, Bite Clementine and Nars Heat Wave. Red in there, but no pink. The ‘pink sneak’ is done in blushes as well, but is not so icky on me. I still pick the red oranges. Metallic oranges, like KVD Halo, become deselected, bec the finish is OTT in an orange, on s.o. my age. Oranges are fab, but not that easy to pick. No blind buys of oranges. Nice list. Gotta try the ones I don’t have. Love this feature for WL construction.

My favourite orange lipstick of all time was a limited edition Givenchy shade from several years ago called Candide Tangerine. It’s a reddened colour, but still definitely orange and the striking thing about it was its “juicy” appearance, through a tone-on-tone shimmer. I’ve never found another colour that has that type of look to it.

A lot of oranges aren’t friendly on my cool-toned complexion, but I do like really saturated ones. My current favourites are Chantecaille Persimmon and Rituel de Fille Bloodroot.

My HG of all lipsticks is orange. Rituel de Fille Enchanted Lip Sheer in Bloodroot. It’s really extraordinary, particularly for anyone who doesn’t want an opaque base (the kind that, regardless of warm or cool tone, makes it look like their lipstick has been applied over a white paint). Nonetheless, it’s deep and warm and buildable. I get compliments EVERY time I wear it.

My favorite orange lipsticks are MAC Liptensity Habanero and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Malice. I’d like to try some of the MAC lipsticks listed here!

I don’t really like orange against my skin, but I love the finish of MAC’s Mangrove and it actually pulls plain red on me (?!). Originally got it as a cheaper dupe for Bite’s Blood Orange, and for the rainbow packaging!

I´m surprised NARS Red Square hasn´t made it on this list. It´s my absolute orange-red favorite lipstick. It lasts for hours without being overly dry and the shade is just perfect. Highly recommend it!

Maybelline has another one called Orange Danger that could be considered a dupe for MAC Lady Danger, though it’s a bit more orange, I think.

I have Orange Danger, but I’ve never worn it. I always reach for Lady Danger when I’m in an orange mood (which is very rarely).

Geraldine by NARS is gorgeous! A fantastic formula, vibrant colour. Mac’s Lady Danger and Indie Flick by Nyx are beautiful mattes, but on me they’re less true orange and more red (for reference, I’m nc15 in Mac terms). YSL used to do a beautiful orange, Indian Sari, but it got discontinued. I’m constantly worried that Geraldine will be discontinued, too.
