MAC launches it’s All About Orange collection on June 6th. And as an orange-lover (cosmetically speaking), I know all too well the appeal of this shocking shade. Distilled down: It’s all about defiant energy.
Orange requires a confidence that can’t be faked. Because when you wear it — and I’m talking lipstick specifically — get ready to turn heads and possibly raise eyebrows. Orange is not classic like red, not girly like pink, not vampy like maroon, not mod like nude – orange is bright and sunny yes, but at the same time a little dangerous.
To me, the woman who paints her lips true orange isn’t simply nonconventional, she’s anti-convention. She’s not afraid of attention or a bit of controversy. She’s got guts.
She’s my kind of girl.
So in honor of the shade itself and the new line debuting in a little over a week, here are my TOP 3 FAVORITE ORANGE LIPSTICKS (no surprise, 2 of which are MAC)…
Now, if you want to cautiously dip your toe into the sea of orange before diving right in, you’ve got options too. I recommend a “gateway gel” of sorts, as it’s a sheer tint of vibrant color that will get you warm and cozy before you take the full plunge. Try Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper in Orange Attitude.
