Orange isn’t the new black, but it’s definitely the new lip to sport this spring season. Usually it’s the red lipstick women can’t live without, but if the spring runways are any indication, orange lipstick is poised to be the hottest, go-to hue on every “it” girl’s pout. Whether worn in electric, attention-grabbing traffic cone orange for a fluorescent neon pop or muted and matte or even glossy with coral and poppy undertones, you can get a taste of the tropics with this citrus shade on your lips. It’s already been spotted at a slew of shows, including DSquared2 where Charlotte Tilbury used the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in What a Blast! to amplify defined lips for just the right intensity that suits all skin tones. If pink is too sweet and red is too pretty, then orange feels just right without being saccharine, according to Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman and her rendition of the ultimate tangerine at Rag & Bone.
Call it tangerine, peach, coral, apricot or salmon — your mouth will say it all in this full-throttle color that delivers in spades.
