An Orange Lip

Making a small change to your beauty routine can have a big impact on your appearance. Whether its embracing new nail trends or trying a different shade of lipstick, you can update your look for under $30 – sometimes for less than $10. Some seasons the difference is less dramatic, but this spring, it’s all about an orange lip.


This look is not for the faint of heart, but I found it surprisingly flattering. After dipping my toe in the bright lip pond about a month ago, I was still apprehensive about trying this trend, but was much more up to the challenge. I asked the husband’s opinion at Sephora, since I knew he would tell me nicely if it didn’t work. Instead of saying he didn’t like it, he actually suggested I go darker in my application. (Who knew?) Since then, I’ve been sporting the shade around town, and while I do still feel self-conscious at times, I really like the look. (I’m still learning this whole selfie business, so I apologize the image is pretty blurry, but I think you get the general idea.)

I splurged on NARS satin lip pencil in Timanfaya to try the trend. The texture is smooth. It covers really well, and the color lasts through several diet cokes. Needless to say, I’m already saving my pennies to buy a few more of their colors. If you’re not sure you want to spend as much on an orange lipstick, fear not. There are plenty of other options out there. Though, I am really happy with this one. Will your pouts be orange this season? Or, will you be sitting this trend out?
