Top to bottom; Nars, MAC, Rimmel
Being a blonde I find it hard to wear bold red or orange shades, although with just mascara and some serious bronzing I think I can just about pull it off. For longevity and a gorgeous colour that lasts all day with just one touch up the Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Iberico is the orange you go for. This shade was part of the digital collection, but I wanted to include it because if you are looking for a bold matte lip that isn’t going to leave your lips dry then the Velvet Matte lip pencils are the best out there!
The more accessible MAC Morange is quite possibly one of the most well known lipsticks in the orange family. The amplified finish ensures the colour is very vibrant, this has a creamy looking finish which for the summer time I actually quite like, perfect also when blotted down to a more subtle look. Not quite as long lasting as the Nars pencil but expected due to the finish, overall a beautiful shade that orange lip lovers need.
A dupe for Morange is Rimmel’s In Love With Ginger very similar is shade and finish, except with MAC you are greeted with a vanilla scent, and we all know what the Rimmel lipsticks are like! I would say that this shade is infact even more vibrant that Morange, so one for the real bold lovers I think.
