Orange has been popping up everywhere lately, and it isn't because Halloween is around the corner. That's right, the color usually associated with the fall season has made a major dent in spring and summer fashion this year! The hottest color right now is wearing a bold orange lip! I find the whole orange lipstick trend to be very interesting. Current fashion is heavily influenced by trends from the late 80's and early 90's right now, so I guess it makes sense that the bold look would make a comeback. I remember this color being really trendy when I was a child. It seemed as if all of the women in r&b videos were wearing it...especially women with darker skin tones. I thought it was so beautiful! My mom also wore various shades of orange lipstick back then as well. A few months ago, I decided to give orange lipstick a try. I went to my local Walmart and purchased Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in the color "Siren" 677. It was around $5 to $7 (which isn't bad at all).

It is a true hot/ bold orange color! I love this color! I think it pops against my skin so nicely! Also, it would be great to wear in the fall as well! As far as the texture is concerned, the lipstick is smooth and creamy, so you don't need to wear gloss with it. The only negative thing I can say is that it kept getting on my teeth. However, I think that was more so because I have braces and they tend to stick out and rub against my lips. Otherwise, I like the lipstick. You can build it to your desired level of pigment. So if you are not ready to go realllllly bold just yet, start with one layer of it. It will look a little redish that way. However, if you want a bright/hot orange look...just layer it up! I think this lipstick is definitely a keeper. It won't be an everyday staple of mine, but I will wear it whenever I want to make a statement!

But for now, I will leave you guys with a walk down orange lipstick memory lane. Toodles!
