Orange lipstick for brown girls

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, not following This Brown Queen or any other beauty blog, you’d know that orange lipstick is in right now. I’ll be honest, because I keep it real around these parts, when I first started seeing this trend I wasn’t here for it. I was all like “orange though? booo.” Because let’s face it. Orange isn’t exactly a standard color and I wasn’t sure how it would play out on this brown girl.  So I did some digging and I’ve come up with a few different options of orange for the bold diva to the lowkey chic.

orange lipstick picks

Black Radiance Amber Rose:  Every time I say this name I want to say Muva! Because…muva rose bud of course ;). This lip gloss has a orange tint and gives just a subtle touch of color to the lips. If you’re an orange lip newbie definitely try this first to get comfortable with the color.

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Tease: Just one step up from the gloss, this packs more color without being too overpowering. It’s orange enough to stand out but subtle enough to be casual. I’ve worn this to the office a few times because I’m cool like that lol.

Wet N Wild Carrot Gold: Whew that’s bright! I’m a huge fan of the Wet N Wild Megalast line so I was happy to see they had an orange option as well. This bright and fun orange looks great against lighter or medium shades of brown.

MAC Lady Danger:  At first glance this looks kinda red…ish, but I assure you against brown skin this pull a fierce coral orange. Brown girls with darker skin tones will appreciate this as well as my orange lippie pros!

Have you rocked orange lipstick yet? Tell me what are your favorites!


Stay blessed beautiful!

      What orange eyeshadows do you like? I have yet to find one that’s really intense which is what I’m looking for in an orange shadow.

    I have that gloss (I think it’s in my give away bag) and that wet n wild lipstick. I have not successfully rocked orange lips yet but I’m pretty sure I will. Milani’s new Coral lipgloss on pigmented lips comes off as a subtle orange. Perfect shade for brown girls.

      Girl me either! Besides the Revlon lacquer balm the brighter shades make me nervous lol. I’m determined to get it right though. I love Milani! I need to see about that gloss today! Thanx! 🙂

        In my mind I’m going to review them (milani gloss) I picked up 4 but in real life I haven’t found the time to take, edit, and post the pictures. I highly recommend them though. I will say moisturize your lips first. I haven’t picked up any of those lacquers but I will try that orange one.
