I really love MAC Sounds Like Noise from the Hayley Williams collection. That orange looks so good on me. Most oranges that I’ve tried are either sheer or lean incredibly neon. That one doesn’t. I want a backup, but it’s sold out on the MAC website. Plus, Hayley Williams is my style icon. If she loves it, I love it.

Mac pro neon orange & Ysl rouge pur couture #13 le orange! Also love sail la vie from mac but it was limited edition.. Oh and good old lady danger of course! But that’s not a true orange. Morange is okay too. But neon orange for sure!

I am sucker for orange lip colors and going to bookmark this page πŸ˜€
my fav are :
MUFE # 40 rouge intense – spot on best orange lip color
followed by so many
Giorgio Armani # 401 I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this so so soooo much
Lancome Rouge in Love # 174 Crazy Tangerine
MAC So Chaud
MAC Lady Danger
MAC Morange

I am sure am missing out so many shades and will come again and add them here

Not a true orange but I love MAC’s So Chaud. I love wearing it in summer with retro sunglasses. It just works so well!
This Autumn I’ve been rocking a darkened rusty colour called “This Corrosion”. It looks so sophisticated!

Urban Decay Super-Saturated lip color in Punch Drunk! I own many orange lippies and this one is my automatic go-to. Rich and even has some teeny sparkles but isn’t frosty.

I love this one as well. Since I have blue undertones in my lips, this formula shows up as the true color instead of turning too red or brownish. I also believe “It Girl” from Sephora lipstick collection is a good dupe for this product.

Hi, the best oange ever is : ” OOH LA LA ” by KA’OIR .

It is perfect , creamy and strong , give it a try and you will be surprised.

Thanks and regards.

I haven’t been able to find an orange that compliments my skintone (NC45-NC50 in MAC terms) to a tee. I have MACs Lady Danger, which is more of a red/orange. I also purchased MACs Morange but it is so bright that I kind of feel clownish when I wear it, so I have yet to wear it outside of the house *sigh* I prefer blue based reds, so maybe orange is just a color that is a no go for my skintone.

I love this tooooo!!! The GA lip maestro formula is so amazing. I’ve collected a couple now, but 300 was the first one I bought and is still my favourite. So fresh and perfect in the summer, paired with some black Raybans and my sun-bleached hair πŸ™‚

I wear orangey-reds and even true oranges quite a bit actually. My all-time favourite is probably MAC So Chaud, and I’m currently loving Who’s That Chick from the RiRi Hearts MAC collection.

The best everrrrr was guerlains orange insolent from a kiss kiss lipstick range back then. This was like maybe 15 years ago. I dont know why they never re- launched something similar. Still waiting for them.it was a soft yellow orange based color, wonderful for summer or with smoky eyes. Bring it back!

Maybelline Electric Orange and Tangerine Dream! I haven’t found a HE orange that matches the ease of wear, beauty, and comfort of the Vivids line.

Orange is a difficult shade (for most, IMO), and with sooo many shades on the market that *are* flattering, I see no reason to even try. That said, I did actually own one orange lipstick, which I got in a discounted Kat von D trio (along with Homegirl & Lolita), but I can’t recall the name & have no idea what even happened to it. However, it was a true orange, and if the formula of the other shades is any indication, it does have a great formula.

I have a blog series dedicated to orange makeup, so I have tried a ton.

Faves are def MAC Morange (a classic), YSL Glossy Stain 8 (Orange De Chine), OCC Androgyne stained gloss, and Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera!

Oranges are very difficult for me and completely wash me out or make me look like I am ready for dialysis. I do far better with oranges with a hit of red or pink in them. But that’s cheating right because then it is essentially an orange coral or pink coral instead of an orange. With that in mind the best orange lipstick–the one that looks the most orange that I will actually wear out of the house from my stash–:

YSL Rouge Volupte #14.

The one I like best, but there is no pretending it isn’t coral: Tom Ford True Coral

I’m quite fond of Maybelline’s Vibrant Mandarin. Of course, since I’m cool toned, my skin tends to pull out the red undertones, making it look more like a very warm red in some lighting. πŸ™‚

Revlon Abstract Orange. It was an LE a couple summers ago so I hoarded. I also like Milani Orange-Gina and Cover Girl Temptation. I like the Cover Girl because it has golden shimmers in it. These go well with my skin and hair color and are more unusual than pinks and mauves. True reds are too bright on me.

For a true orange color, MAC Sounds Like Noise is amazing! Can be chalky thought but if I apply a little lip balm and an orange liner (17 MUFE) it really works perfectly

Urban Decay Bang! Also Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte in Jenna. For subtler orange-tinted lips, I also love Korean orange lip tints from Etude and Peripera πŸ˜€

Hard to choose just one, but if we’re going based on shade alone, I’d say MAC Morange or MAC Fashion Nomad. For a drugstore lipstick, I’d say Maybelline Vivids lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin or Orange Edge. Hard to choose just one!

Hmmm, cant really decide due to the different textures but I own MAC Morange, UD Bang, OCC Beta, OCC lip stain, MUFE aqua lip 40, and MAC Morange.

Makeup Forever Rouge Intense in #40 is everything! It’s perfectly neon orange with nary a hint of tangerine-ness.
OCC Beta
Relon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti (less opaque)

I’ve been looking for a burnt orange lip color for quite some time now and have come pretty close. Mac Chili is an orange-red that’s darker than your standard orange lippie. Bite’s matte pencil in Toast is a gorgeous burnt orange but isn’t quite dark enough for what I’m looking for. If anyone else has suggestions I’d love to hear them! Thanks!

MAC Sheer Mandarin is heaven!! It’s almost like an orange equivalent of nude, which should be awful but it’s divine and SO flattering on pale but warm skin tones. My lips make most corals and stuff like almost fuchsia, but Sheer Mandarin is like a natural pretty peach on me πŸ™‚ xx

I’ve never actually worn an orange lipstick. I just bought Maybelline Vivids Electric Orange to try out, though. I’m hoping that it’s flattering on me because I really like orange lipstick on others!

Orange is my absolute favorite color to wear in the summer! I’m a neutral undertone, but i think I lean ever so slightly warm, since I don’t like the way bright pinks look on me as much as bright oranges! I love Vegas Volt from MAC as I can make it a stain in the summer for the beach!

Sleek’s Papaya Punch is supposed to be a coral but the first time I tried it on, it seemed to be a screaming orange – and I love it. I recently got the new Sleek shade Tangerine Scream which is supposed to be a dupe for MAC’s Morange (which I don’t have) as well as Sleek’s pout paint/lip tar in Lava – but I haven’t tried them out yet.

I also like Catrice’s orangey nude Fox Nox, which I layer on top of Papaya Punch to tone the latter down a bit. Another shade that’s beautiful is 17’s Honey Blossom, which would be a perfect peachy-orange if it weren’t frosty. I usually pat it in a bit and it works. (These three brands are my favourite lipstick brands. The most important thing to me in lipsticks is the texture. I hate having that lipstick feeling like a thick waxy layer on my lips, or a strong smell. Unscented is best.)

Innisfree Lipstick, I don’t even know the name of that lipstick, I got it in South Korea, but it is a really bright orange which I couldn’t wear it daily, but I really like that color.

Morange – a dearly missed friend wore it all the time, and her father mentioned it in her eulogy, so I went out later that week and bought it. Every time I wear it, I’m reminded of her. πŸ™‚

Am using
MAKE UP FOR EVER aqua cream 10 orange -golden tangerine sheen. I know it’s for the eyes but I use it as a lip color and it’s been the most flattering orange lip color for my complexion

Mac Ablaze, YSL rouge volupte perle 110 orange incandescent but don’t last, Givenchy Candide Tangerine (but I feel a bit ashamed when I wear it ) and more appropriate for the day Mac Ravishing.
