The Orange lipstick trend seems to getting more popular these days. Cosmetic companies are coming out with more vivid, eye-catching shades of lipstick than ever before. In the past, women considered lip color shades like dark brown or deep plum as very risky and racy colors to wear.

Orange Lips Make A Bold StatementWhen I saw the bright orange shade of this lipstick, I was floored. That may be one of the reasons why this bright shade of  lipstick continues to gain popularity at the cosmetics counter. Looking at the shock value of orange lips, this color is likely a favorite for women who want to stand out in a crowd.

Is a bright, in-your-face lipstick color like this wearable for everyone? I would say no. If you have a conservative job working in a bank or you want to maintain an aura of serious professionalism, bright orange lips may be hard to pull off. On the other hand, if you want to be noticed by members of the opposite sex, nothing says it louder than hot-orange lips. Wearing bright orange lipstick is not for the shy, wall-flower type girl.

Women have been using cosmetics for thousands of years to make themselves more alluring to the opposite sex. If red lips signal to a man that a woman is "hot' and sexy, what message will a man get when he sees bright orange lips on a woman?

Every color that a human sees causes some type of an emotional response. The color orange represents happiness, positive thinking, energy, and enthusiasm. Not bad for a lip color. Whatever a man may think about orange lips, he will have to admit that this girl is not afraid to be different.

Maybe that's why orange lipstick trends are on the rise. After all,  basic colors that have been around for years, a bright orange lip shade is something fun and different. Women love experimenting with cosmetics. As the lipstick color shades available grow larger and larger, make-up addicts will have more lip colors to experiment with.


At first, I was hesitant to wear a real orange lipstick

Coralberry by Revlon is perfect

Revlon Coralberry LipstickCredit: Courtesy of Amazon.comI love makeup; especially lipstick. I remember my Grandmother had a shade called California Orange that was so bright and neon, only the few and lucky would look pretty wearing it. The color was what I considered a "blonde" shade. With my brunette hair and brown eyes, the only shades in this range that I thought looked good were light, frosted peach shades.

Then I tried Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Coralberry 694. Nice! This is one color that looks great on a brunette with medium skin tones. It isn't too neon and it isn't too milky. It brightens my face and makes me look beachy and summery. If you are looking for a shade that you can wear out in public without being embarrassed, it's a pretty and wearable option.

My only wish is that this color had some shimmer to it. It is a cream formula. However, I just put some lipgloss over it and it looks perfect for spring and summer.
