I recently took you through my collection of fuchsia lipsticks, now it's time for my other lip-color obsession: orange.
Yes, you can be fair and wear orange, I absolutely love this color, it's very flattering, it brightens the face, and some of them actually make teeth look whiter like a blue based red would do. (Oh! Reds! That's something for later.)
You'll notice that I use the name "orange" a bit loosely: Nars Niagara is leaning more to coral than to true orange but well, at least it serves for comparison purposes.
If you find orange hard to wear, a touch of litchee colored lipgloss on top will make it more wearable, that's how I started wearing Mac Morange a year ago:

I ended up ditching the gloss and wearing the lipstick alone and I still do. These days I tend to wear the Givenchy one more, as well as the Guerlain, but that deserves a full separate post :)
Do you wear orange on the lips? What are your favorites?
