Colour Me In: Orange Lipsticks

'Colour Me In' is a series of posts in collaboration with Alice of ArsyParsy, Tezza of Myteeefine and Amanda ofThai-Tales!


Okay, so I'm not exactly sure if orange lips will be a hot trend or not for the upcoming Spring/Summer... but I've ALWAYS wondered how people pull off orange lipsticks SO well!

I see it on models and bloggers. I don't think I've passed any beauty sporting orange lipsticks in real life yet. But from photos, some beauties pull off orange lipsticks perfectly fine! I envy them!

For me, red lips are already so extreme.. Orange lipsticks just takes it to another level. However, in saying so.. I do actually own two orange lipsticks! I have this weird thing where I love collecting odd coloured lipsticks.. most likely because they're not easy to find and I think they'd come to use one day. Just one day.

So here are two orange lipsticks I own!

Australis Limited Edition 2 and 

Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Limited Edition 2, a year or two back. It has the perfect formula as the other shades from the Colour Inject range. Talk about creamy, smooth, pigmented and moisturising without much slip! But the colour is not ok. It's not an orange shade that I would ever wear out, I don't think so! It's not exactly 'orange' or coral, it's more like a carrot colour which kinda irks me, but I'd like to keep it for when I feel like some whack make-up (you know what I mean!). Will come handy!

Serge Louis Alvarez Lipstick in Something.. I'm just kidding! There's not a name for it so let's just name it Something! LOL.

I actually purchased this at IMATS for $10 (steal!) and it's the prettiest coral shade when applied, but the formula is absolutely stressful to work with. It's matte, but it's the driest thing I've applied to my lips, to be honest. I think it may be because it's old and discontinued. But anyways, I can feel my lips tugging when I try to apply this. Still a pretty shade though!

Yay or nay?

So tell me....

Do YOU wear orange/coral lipsticks?

What do you think of orange/coral lips? Only on runways, or nay?

I truly do think orange is a shade you should keep an eye on for the upcoming Spring and Summer, so make sure to drop by Tezza's post of orange nail art (ooh!), Alice's orange lippies and Amanda's orange lippies! WA! SO many lippies!


  1. I don't wear orange, never ever :P not even clothes.

    The second colour looks nice though!

    1. Now that you've mentioned it.. ME TOO! Wa! I think the only thing I have that is orange is a scarf.. besides that.. nothing! Yikes!

  2. OMG 'Something'' looks beautiful! Add a layer of lipgloss and it would be perfect <3 <3 <3

  3. You can see how dry "Something" looks with the swatch! What a shame, as that colour is very lovely.
    Not sure about the first colour though, it's so different to any other orange or coral lippies I've come across! Very carrot, like you said!
    Although it doesn't look terrible on you at all, I think it looks pretty nice!
    I personally love the orange look and have sported it a few times, so there are some of us who wear it in real life, I promise ;) haha! Not sure if people would say I pull it off or not though :P

    1. Yes! :( I think I may start mixing the first colour to a pink base or something! It looks so irky!

      You must show us a FOTD of you with the orange lippie!

  4. i like the coral one shame its drying!
