14 Orange Lipsticks That Are Cute, Not Clownish

Orange lipstick gets a bad rap, because it can be so bright and zingy. But, I argue: what about burnt orange, or terracotta, or even coral lipsticks? Those are subdued and beautiful, not bold and bright… But also, what’s wrong with bold and bright orange red lipstick, you know?

Sure, red lipstick is the classic, the iconic, the Marilyn-Monroe-Taylor-Swift descriptor, but orange lipstick (especially blood-orange) can be just as classy… or just a whole lotta frickin’ fun, because why should you only wear lipstick to seem “classy?”

In honor of orange lipstick and its rad-AF aesthetic, I’ve put together a list of my 14 favorite options. Smile wide – you’ll look fabulous in these shades.

Always On Longwear Matte Liquid Lipstick

always on liquid lipstick from smashbox in thrill seeker

Marissa reviewed Smashbox’s Always On Liquid Lipstick and fell in love with it, buying another shade and bringing them to Italy with her! So, of course, we had to recommend the lipstick for its bright and badass Thrill Seeker, a red-orange option that’s sure to turn heads. A blend of jojoba, apricot, and sunflower oils keep the formula hydrating rather than drying, and it lasts eight hours – perfect for late nights that turn into early mornings.

Major Beauty Headlines – Matte Suede Lipstick

Major Beauty Headlines - Matte Suede Lipstick

It was recently Mean Girls Day, aka the most important holiday of the year for Plastics everywhere. So, yes, this lipstick shade is beautiful, but we would be lying if we didn’t choose it for the name, “She’s Not From Here,” and its timeliness. Spherical ultra-fine pigments give this lipstick its even application, from glide to coverage; optical diffusers give it its blurring, matte finish.

Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick

HOURGLASS CONFESSION lipstick in vivid orange

Neon orange with a lacquer finish? Hourglass has you covered. The Confession lipstick – which is refillable, holla @ sustainability – has a satin finish that stays, so you don’t have to worry about smearing or cracking during the day. Paraben- and phthalate-free, plus vegan and cruelty-free, I Desire is a punch of pumpkin straight to the pucker.

Magnetic Lip Plush Paints Lip Color

Nope, NudeStix isn’t JUST nudes – they have fun colors, too, thank you very much. This lip color can also be worn on lids and cheeks, so if you’re looking for a fluorescent orange flush, this is the tint you want. It’s ridiculously soothing, combining aloe, chamomile, green tea, and rosewater extracts to give you color without irritation.

BUY NOW – $28


Everlasting Hyperlight Vegan Transfer-Proof Liquid Lipstick

Everlasting Hyperlight Vegan Transfer-Proof Liquid Lipstick in orange

We love a good liquid lipstick that dries down without drying out. KVD does a bomb job at this, using raspberry stem cells to coddle lips and give them the comfort they need to remain plush. Bonus: the transfer-proof lipstick stays on all day, but it’s a lightweight formula, so you won’t feel like you’re carrying around fake lips on your face.

BUY NOW – $22


Rouge Hermès – Matte lipstick

HERMES ROUGE matte lipstick in orange

Hermes claims their lipstick has a “second skin effect” – that’s how comfortable the velvet formula is. While a splurge, the lipstick is deeply orange, giving you a fiery finish, and deeply hydrating. Part of this is due to the dose of protective vitamin E complemented by sesame seed oil, while squalane is ultra moisturizing on chapped lips.

BUY NOW – $69


Liquid Velvet Supremé by Kuckian

kuckian velvet lipstick in wildfire

Many lipsticks claim to be long-lasting, but this terracotta option? It’s actually long-lasting. The secret: apply the formula – one thin layer only! – then let it sit for one-to-two minutes prior to smacking, eating, kissing, etc. It’ll last hours upon hours, and it won’t feel uncomfortable thanks to moisturizing jojoba oil and protective vitamin E. Goodbye cracking!

Paint-It Matte Lip Color

paint it matte lip color from about-face in red orange

Duh, Halsey’s about-face made it on here. Her colors are wild, and the flaming orange Canyon On Fire is no exception. The Paint It Matte Lip Colors are highly pigmented, so you just need one swipe to be fully covered. The formula is 100% vegan, but we really can’t boast about its ingredients, which is kind of a bummer given how incredibly beautiful her products are.

BUY NOW – $16


Velvet Lip Cream

saint cosmetics velvet lip cream in red orange las vegas

Saint Cosmetics gets it right, gets it glossy, gets it good. Their Velvet Lip Cream feels like… well, velvet, sitting comfortably on and hydrating your lips with its long-lasting formula. How does one make a lipstick so ideal? With good ingredients, like castor oil to fight dry lips and vitamin-E-potent sunflower seed oil. And why not throw in some nourishing olive oil and candelilla and carnauba waxes as the cherry on top? 

BUY NOW – $28


LE MONSTER MATTE LIP CRAYON

haus labs lipstick crayon in fire me orange

Leave it to Gaga to create a lip crayon that is precise, pigmented, and just… pretty, overall. “Fire Me” is the name of this orange, which we’re kind of obsessed with, tbh. The crayon is full-coverage, so you won’t have to worry about your natural lip color peeking through, and the formula is vegan and cruelty-free.

Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick

Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick from merit in soft orange red

MERIT looked at almost every other lipstick out there (can’t say every, because there are so many good ones on this list!) and said: “anything you can do, I can do better.” For example: stuffing in a ton of good ingredients to keep lips happy and healthy in a beautiful, deep terracotta lipstick. Sunflower seed oil and squalane lock in hydration, while papaya extract soothes and raspberry oil moisturizes. 

BUY NOW – $26


Eclipse Cheek & Lip Stick

Eclipse Cheek & Lip Stick in terracotta

Total eclipse of the… cheek and lips, which we l-o-v-e here at QUILL. This 2-in-1 tint is a balm that delivers color without drying. r.e.m. boasts its “second skin” finish, thanks to a lightweight formula that includes jojoba seed oil to hydrate and grapefruit extracts to keep your complexion clear. It also has kaolin for oil control, cocoa seed butter to nourish, ginseng root extract for evening out skin tone, and safflower seed oil to prevent flaking. In other words: don’t buy this assuming it’s non comedogenic!

Lip Soufflé Matte Cream Lipstick

Lip Soufflé Matte Cream Lipstick IN TERRACOTTA

Isn’t it ~rare~ to find a terracotta shade this beautiful in a lipstick? (Sorry, hate myself for it too, bye.) But it’s not the terracotta color that makes this lipstick the amazing product it is – though it certainly helps! – it’s the ingredients. A botanical blend of lotus, gardenia, and white waterlily come together with vitamin E to repair, revitalize, and form a barrier between your lips and free radicals – giving you a totally protected pout.

BUY NOW – $20


Liquid Lipstick (Ginger)

Would it be a complete list without Fluide? Nah, so here they are. Their Liquid Lipstick comes in orange-red Ginger, a neon shade that pops on every skin tone. If you’re looking to go big, Fluide is the brand to choose; not only do their shades stand out, but their liquid lipstick is never goopy or sticky or gluey. Graduate from Superneutrals to Ginger – it’s not that scary, promise.

Here’s How To Rock Monochromatic Makeup Looks

Monochromatic makeup looks can be hard to pull off, which is exactly why I’ve always been too intimidated to try it out. What happens if I look like a clown? Or my skin is just… ick in multiple shades of the same color? So, instead, I’ve done exactly what they say NOT to do: wear dramatic eyes with red lipstick. 

Sue me. Green is scary.

But as a beauty editor, it’s important to learn about the things that make you want to hide. So today, I’m explaining how to wear monochromatic makeup and not look absolutely ridiculous, no matter your color choice. And spoiler: it’s a LOT easier than you (cough, I) think!

arrow

How Monochromatic Makeup Became Popular

Monochromatic makeup became popular in 2021. Makeup artists have been doing monochromatic makeup looks for longer than 2021, sure, but when you have celebs like Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Priyanka Chopra doing something, trends tend to explode. And ‘twas the case in 2021, though with more bronze and gold looks than out-there, loud-and-proud color matching.

It’s super simplistic – you put one color on your face, and you have makeup sections across the board (aka your face) that complement one another. There’s no deciding whether your gold lip gloss goes with your blue eyeshadow when one color just works together. So, it can be a no-brainer when deciding on what to do or how to dress up.


How to Wear Monochromatic Makeup

Pulling off monochromatic makeup is super easy when it comes to neutrals – swipe on some bronzer, or some gold, or some beige/brown, and you have a tan complexion, which is in for spring of 2022. It’s also great when wearing crazy patterns, since you don’t want your face to battle with a statement outfit. Not only are you staying neutral, but you’re pulling off another trend at the same time – can you say in?

But if you’re feeling bold, it’s possible to go a little wild with your makeup. For example, try wearing a blue-tinted lip gloss with blue eyeshadow and blue eyeliner. Or, create a smokey eye using purple tones, then swipe on a lilac highlighter. Pink can be neutral, but why be that when you can go neon? And if you want to feel #Fierce, try matching your makeup to your outfit, like Rihanna.

One way to make pulling off monochromatic makeup easy: finding multi-use products. That way, you have one color that goes on everywhere, so there’s no mixing and matching colors and hoping that the orange tint in your bronzer doesn’t clash with the blue tint in your lipstick.


Monochromatic Makeup Products

Universal Gloss

MONOCHROMATIC MAKEUP product fluide universal gloss in marz

I own Fluide’s Universal Gloss, and I’m obsessed with it. I pop it on my cheeks, my lips, and my lids, and I have a rosy flush that gives me life – even on days I’ve woken up at 5 am to work. I have it in Roxy (thank you Laura!), but I also love the fiery color that is Marz, because who says you can’t wear deep red on your lids? Fight the rules, Fluide, it’s what you do best.

It’s packed with hydrating jojoba oil, vitamin-filled sunflower seed oil to retain moisture, and green tea to protect against free radicals.

SO SOFT MULTI FACEPLAY BRONZE + SCULPT

em cosmetics pangea bronzer and sculpt deep brown stick

I love Pangea for many reasons, but mostly because it makes the choices for the Bronze + Sculpt stick so inclusive. There isn’t just a light tan – there’s a deep, “decadent cacao with neutral to slightly cool undertones” so every skin tone has a chance to deepen, not just those with porcelain skin. It’s filled with squalane and vitamin E to hydrate and protect, with a creamy texture that glides right on.

GOLD GLOW STICK // FACE + BODY

noto botanics glow gold highlighter

Glow, baby, glow. While I of course love the gold in this – and it’s GOLD, not just a subtle glow of gold – my favorite part is the ingredients, which are there to totally nourish the skin anywhere you apply it. Say hello to fatty-acid- and antioxidant-filled olive oil, the antimicrobial coconut, hydrating jojoba and rosehip seed oils, healing vitamin E, and anti-inflammatory neem seed oil… among a bunch of other ingredients that will love up on your skin.

Metamorphic Highlighter (The Chimera)

RITUEL DE FILLE green highlighter for monochromatic makeup looks

Don’t be afraid of green! I know concealer is green to hide redness, but green should be celebrated for what it is, not just what it can hide. Rituel de Fille’s Metamorphic Highlighter is perfect for eyelids, thanks to the strong pigment; lips, because lime is a nice tint on top of neutral puckers; and cheeks, which will light up like never before with a fun color mixed with glitter.

BUY NOW – $32


Holographic Stick

milk holographic stick in lavender

I’m obsessed with anything holographic, so I had to include both of Milk’s tones. The first is more neutral – still holographic, but it goes on beige, so it’s not as out there unless you catch the light. The lavender, on the other hand? Wear it if you want everyone to know you’re wearing highlighter without light, because, yeah, everyone is going to notice.

BUY NOW – $21


Face Highlighter Palette Kit

foil highlighter for full face in nude pink for monochromatic makeup look

This highlighter looks like foil, but it’s simply super glittery, giving you a glow that can’t be beat. I wanted to include one that wasn’t a stick or cream, because I want to prove that you can still have a monochromatic look without a heavy hand. The nude pink comes through with a non-oily shine, and it’s buildable – something a few other options here are missing. Sheer or statement, it’s up to you.

Biodegradable Holographic Body Glitter Gel

Unicorn Snot has made it, obvs. So you don’t want color, you just want glitter? A goddamn unicorn sneezed, and the result is meant for your entire face (and body). I personally love Unicorn Snot because it’s the most glitter-y of the bunch, and the gel will ensure that it stays on all day. Plus, the glitter is vegan, cruelty-free, and biodegradable, so you can feel totally ethical.

These 10 Gold Makeup Pieces Will Make You Glow

I love a good smokey eye. I was all about the black, grey, and stark white. It was my shit. Add in a dark contour and deep red lipstick, and I was good to go everywhere, every day. None of that bronze, brown, and gold makeup. It was all about being dark and mysterious.

Until I was told my makeup looked way too blue and dark and contrasted with my pale skin. Was I offended? Absolutely. But did I know it was time for a change? Yup.

So I switched to neutral, tinted gold makeup instead to make a point – my smokey eyes were fine.

But bronzes, deep browns, nudes, with flashes of glittery gold – those have became the staples in my makeup drawers. With my vampire-light skin, it flatters me better than the jet blacks and blue-greys I wore regularly.

And yes, the key to it all: that gold. That metallic, shimmery gold has changed the makeup-game like no other, bringing out my hazel eyes and subtly highlighting the few bronze spots I have from summers. I have never looked better.

If you’re looking for a change from your standard smokey eye and bright red blush – for example, at 2 pm on a Monday – gold makeup might be the way to go. These are my favorite pieces!

Oh, honey! Yes, gold usually shimmers, which is why this palette has four glittery options. But it also comes with five matte shades to give you solid bases, a little subtlety, or simply some fun without worrying about flaking. The shades go on silky, then dry into a powder, but the high-pigmented color will stay put all day.

Universal Liner

Why was there ever the term “guy-liner?” Why wasn’t it just… eyeliner? I digress. Fluide disagrees with gender stereotypes and calls this their Universal Liner, coming in eight sparkly colors. For a gold glint, we recommend scooping up Pyrite. The brush is fine, so you can apply the lines as precisely as you’d like. Geometric shapes are encouraged!

GLOSSIER gold lip gloss

I hate when you use a lip gloss and it’s goopy. Or, it dries out after 0.5 seconds, and suddenly you have a weird, crusty shine.

Blue Makeup Is Actually The Best – Just Check Out These Products

Blue makeup has been shunned.

Blue eyeshadow? Childish.

Blue lipstick? Wild.

Blue anything? Nah.

So, I’m here to say this: eff that, I loooove blue makeup.

It’s not because it flatters my hazel eyes, it’s not because I’m a Sagittarius who’s wild. It might be because blue is my favorite color, but that’s not the point. It’s because it’s fun. It’s because it’s unexpected. It’s a pop of color that everyone could benefit from, something to complement – or change for – their nudes and blacks.

Don’t know where to start? Trying to avoid that pastel blue that has been banned in adulthood? I’ve got you covered.

arrow

Eyeshadow

You can go with light eyeshadows, but try to avoid that light, matte, pastel blue eyeshadow you wore for dance performances. For light blue, make sure there’s shimmer to keep it more grown-up. Or, lean toward deep blue. If you’re wearing blue eyeshadow – arguably the most visible and striking part of your look – you want to make a bold statement.


Eyeliner

We love using blue eyeliner in graphic designs, but we also love using it as a pop of color around the eyes. Work it into your water line as a subtle hint of color, or line your top lid for a bright, can’t-miss-it look. If subtlety is more your thing, you can work it into the inside of your eye, whether you wear other makeup or simply let the hint be enough.


Highlighter

It sounds odd, I know. But when the light hits highlighter, your face glows, right? A hint of blue adds a fun, exciting twist to the usual. If you really want to capture attention, consider a gel with hints of blue, or even go full-on holographic. No one can stop you from making your mark at the party, you know?


Lipstick & Lip Gloss

Go big or go home, right? If you’re really feeling like being bold, lipstick is the way to go. MAC has you covered, as does Byredo, with their vibrant blue lipsticks. Lip gloss is a more subtle way to go about blue, but it’ll still give your lips a tint that takes on the color (we love Fluide’s). Pucker up, because blue is now the It Shade.

A post shared by Bella Kay (@bella.kay_photos)

It’s an odd color to most, despite being in nearly every makeup brand’s online store. Some think it’s too bright, while others don’t think it’s flattering. Regardless, it’s sold everywhere, which means people are secretly buying it.

I’m telling you, if you need to hear it: be brave and wear the orange! I promise it’s not scary, and it’s actually beautiful on every skin tone. Don’t believe me? I’ve invested in each of the following, and I guarantee they’re worth it. And if they’re not, you’re free to send me an angry email if you disagree.
