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.
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!
