Orange crush


Brighter weather mens brighter colours. I'm never going to be a bright clothes kind of girl (*black/navy uniform all year*) but I love bright lipsticks & accessories for spring. My one big love apart from red lipstick has always been orange/coral lipsticks. My mum's best friend is tan with brown eyes & blonde hair - orange has always been her signature lipstick colour. I've found four orange lipsticks too suit all budgets & skin tones. I adore all of them!

This lipstick is a great foray into the world of orange lipsticks. This is a more pink toned coral and like all Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, it's a great texture. It's really easy to wear - from work to a few drinks in the sun, Coachella Coral is a great colour for all skin tones. 

This is one of my all time favourite lipsticks and it's certainly not for the faint hearted. A true orange, this is my ultimate holiday lipstick. I love nothing more than a tan, a cocktail in my hand and this lippy. This is the perfect shade for darker skin tones. 

A recent discovery, Hype is an orange with red undertones. As this is a matte lipstick, I find it takes a few more coats to male the colour really strong but it means you can wear less during the day & build it up for night. I think this lipstick definitely needs a lipliner to help it last. However, this is a great & very flattering colour for all skin tones. 

Another new discovery, this red/orange shade is similar to Morange. A creamy texture, this formula is easy to apply and is great for paler skin tones for that English rose look. I can't wait to rock this all summer long.
