The Edit | Orange You Glad To See Me?

if there's one colour i love when it comes to beauty bits, it's got to be a bit of orange. any shade, any variation and chances are i'll be completely drawn to it, so it's safe to say i'm a huge fan of all the coral that seems to be around at the minute. i've picked out my favourite orange pieces from my collection - lips, cheeks and nails - to share with you all! 

i've gone for four lip products which are they ones i find myself reaching for most often in my collection. first we have Pillow Talk from the Famous by Sue Moxley brand; a warm peach tone with pink hues to it. next, there's Juicy Papaya from Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter range; a bit more of a sheer shade that adds just the right amount of pigmentation to the lips. Mexican Wave from Louise Gray for Topshop is a bright, vibrant and almost neon orange, making it perfect for the summer months. if you're more of a gloss kinda gal, then i would recommend Barry M Lipgloss in 11 for a quick, subtle splash of colour! 

i know these both look fairly pink in the photos, but they are both gorgeous coral shades with pink tones and hues to them (my skin has warm undertones, so these kinds of colours give me a natural looking glow). these two products are actually very similar with Sleeks Rose Gold on the left and Benefits Bella Bamba on the right. Rose Gold has more of a shimmer to it, whilst Bella Bamba is more on the verge of a matte shade with glimpses of shimmer in. unfortunately i completely forgot to swatch these, but don't be scared of how pigmented they look in their palettes - a light dusting across the cheeks leaves a natural, healthy flushed look.

these have been my two go-to shades this summer and am getting through them far too quickly! Barry M's Gelly Nail Paint in Papaya is a rich, peach shade - the perfect peach polish. Dolce & Gabbana's Camelia is a much more vibrant pinky/coral shade, and hasn't much left my nails since i've had it! 

aswell as the products featured here, I have a huge amount of other orange favourites including L'Oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash in Princess, Benefit Cha Cha Tint and Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Stain in Nothing But Nude. 

i would absolutely love any recommendations from you girls on orangey products that you're loving, too! just drop me a comment below!

  1. Can never go wrong with a bit of orange, my favourite. I love the d&g nail polish! I got the 3 minis of benefit tints which has cha cha in it, it's the perfect orangey colour! X
