I've Got An Orange Crush On Spring Lips

When it comes to makeup, are you getting tired of the same ol' same ol'? Feel like you're reusing the same look over and over? Me too! How do we solve that? The easiest game changer is lipstick (duh!). With spring officially here, I'm itching for new colors to spice things up. Usually, I tend to go for bright magentas and pinks because they're easier to work with and more natural.

I want to wear more orange. I currently have two lipsticks of the orange/tangerine family, but I just never fell in love with them. I tried and tried, but it felt more like I was forcing the shade to work, convincing myself that I loved it, and trying to believe what the makeup counter ladies told me. Overall, I should have invested more time in research in finding the perfect shade. Otherwise, I wouldn't have this longing for my long lost best friend or in this instance, the perfect shade of tangerine.

So, here goes my search! Thanks to Allure Magazine, I have some lipstick suggestions to guide my way on this quest. Check out shades and beauty inspiration below:

1. Senna Sheer Face Color in Terracotta 2. NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick 3. Yves Saint Laurent Crème de Blush in 4 4. Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow in Fira 5. Clarins Rouge Eclat in Juicy Clementine

  1. Loving the orange cosmetics - especially lipstick, they're actually quite flattering which you wouldn't assume.
