This week is flying by for me. I’ve been busy busy and I am just realizing that I NEVER told you guys that I reached a milestone early this month… It was my BLOGIVERSARY! I have been blogging for FOUR years! Holy shitt!! That’s it you guys! This is my longest running hobby in my entire life xD
Today I want to share with you my orange lipstick collection because as you all know, I have been obsesseeeeed with orange lippies for a while now. Since around October last year to be exact. It’s a small collection mind you, I have about seven but I honestly would love to have a few more, so I’ve been looking around to see what other brands might have.
I do talk about these on my new video and I do show them on my lips:
I will be sharing the lipsticks in the same order as I did in my video, and I will try to include things that I might have missed. Let’s gooo!!
Wet n Wild
Velvet Matte Lip Color in Turnt Orange
Price: $3.49 USD / / Size: 0.13oz
Cruelty-free? No, they sell in China
This lippie is probably the lightest out of them all. It’s not as pigmented in one swipe, but you can build it up and it still looks nice and subtle. Great for everyday makeup looks in the summer. The unfortunate thing about these crayons is that they’re very likely to break apart inside, which this one did. These are not WnW’s best lippies, but they’re pretty good for a drugstore lip crayon.
Moisturizing Lipstick in Orange Dream
Price: $3.00 – $4.00 USD / / Size: 0.11oz
Cruelty-free? YES! Also has some Vegan products!
This lipstick is much more bolder and pigmented than the previous one and it’s around the same price. At Ulta you can find them for $3 but the price may vary depending on the store. This lipstick feels so damn moisturizing, it applies smoothly and feels nice and light on the lips. It will transfer because it’s creamy but the quality of this lipstick is too good to pass up. I love that e.l.f. has been stepping up their game. I remember when I used to use their makeup when I was younger and it’s not nearly as good as this, even though it’s always been good for its price.
Soft Matte Lip Cream in Morocco
Price: $6.50 USD (?) – Currently: $4.55 on Ulta / / Size: oz
Cruelty-free? YES! Also has some Vegan products.
I feel like this one is a toned-down version of the e.l.f. lipstick, but it’s still a gorgeous shade. I do have to apply a few coats to get it to look opaque, because one swipe can look a bit sheer, depending on the shade. This one does dry down to a matte finish but it’s comfortable, and not at all bothersome.
These SMLC’s are some of my absolutely favorite of ANY lipsticks, they will ALWAYS be in my Top 5 or 10! 🙂 They’re that good! I think one thing that NYX has going for them is their lipsticks. These were my introduction to the brand and they were amazing then and now!
Jeffree Star Cosmetics
Velour Liquid Lipstick in Flamethrower
Price: $18.00 USD / / Size: 0.19oz
Cruelty-free? Yes! And Vegan!
I got this in my Mystery Box and I was stoked to have gotten it, specially because it was orange. Anyway, this lipstick is so fucking good, and vibrant and lovely! I know not many of you like Jeffree but I cannot deny the fact that his makeup is so damn good! The formula is amazing! It dried down kind of quick, it has little to no transfer (unless you eat oily foods), and the longevity is amazing as well.
One swipe will do the job, I think it’s so awesome. The applicator is pretty nice too, it’s curved so it kind of hugs your lips and I find it easy to apply the lipstick onto my lips. You will need a good makeup remover to take this lipstick off, be warned.
Ultra Matte Lip in What’s the Stitch
Price: $7.00 USD – Was: $6.50 / / Size: 0.11oz
This lipstick is bold, beautiful, and pigmented. It did take a bit longer to dry down compared to the JSC one but it still feels comfortable, even though I can feel it on my lips. (It’s nothing bothersome, in my opinion). It doesn’t dry out my lips which is always a plus for these matte lippies. ColourPop is known for their lippies and their pressed powder pigments/palettes, I am super happy that they’ve kept their prices relatively low because people like me who want high quality makeup can afford it. (Though this lippie got its priced raise by 50 cents!)
Dose of Colors
Liquid Matte Lipstick in Coral Crush
Price: $18.00 USD / / Size: 0.16oz
Cruelty-free? Yes! Also has some Vegan products (or all?)
I received this in my May Boxycharm, and I loved it since the first time I tried it! Super comfortable, lightweight, dries down fairly quickly. The only thing about this lippie is that it’s not completely orange, it pulls more pink (coral) but it’s still a gorgeous shade to wear during the summer. I do love that it has a neon vibe to it, so more reason to use it this season. The applicator is the same as the JSC one, it hugs the curves of the lips and in my opinion, easy application. You do get amazing color payoff in one swipe.
I do think that this one is a bit closer to the NYX one, even though this pulls more pink, but I like that they’re in the same family more or less, so unless you swatch them side by side, you won’t see those strong pink undertones.
Matte Velvetine Lipstick in Pumpkin
Price: $20.00 USD / / Size: 0.088oz
Cruelty-free? Yes, but there has been lots of controversy around this brand, so be warned.
This lippie is the darkest out of them all, but I still wanted to include this one in this list because when I was searching for “orange toned” lipsticks, I got this one in the results. When I first applied it I was a bit disappointed because it wasn’t the bright orange I was looking for, but still an amazing addition to my collection because even though it’s not a true orange (more of a brick toned shade), it has some brown undertones which would be absolutely gorgeous for Autumn. AND, it would still give me those warm undertones if I want them next season.
Anyway, this lipstick dried down pretty fast, it’s comfortable, lightweight, and it doesn’t feel like the kind of lipstick that would transfer. I actually swipe my fingers over my lips and NOTHING came off. Not even when I was drinking water did I see some transfer. It wasn’t until after I ate that I noticed it started to fade from the inside of my lips, but it didn’t require re-application. Also, let it be known that as good as this lipstick is, it has less product than others around the same price range.
So that’s it you guys! My small orange lipstick collection.
I’d love to know what you guys think of these or the color orange.
Would you rock it or pass?
Thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing rest of your week!
