5 Orange Lip Glosses to try

There’s nothing I love more than juicy juicy oranges for the lips. It looks great with a tan, especially with a little sparkle.

NYX Round Gloss in Apricot – I like these glosses a lot but they packaging is shiteous. Of the 12 NYX glosses I have HALF of them are damaged (the cap in the tube which stops too much product coming out comes loose). The gloss itself is nice though:

Majex by Majolica Majorca makes some pretty lip glosses (although not madly remarkable). This is a nice true orange with lots of shimmer:

Armani Lip Shimmers are very pretty, and this hot orange reminds me of a flaming grill. It can also be worn sheer so its more of a calypso colour (calypso! What are you talking about woman!):

I fell out of love with Shu Uemura a while ago. Nothing they have made since the passing of Mr Uemura (RIP) has captured me. My local counter is also rubbish and they are still touting products from last Autumn instead of the new stuff. Nevertheless, this is a shiny, pretty sparkly shade:

Nars Sweet Dreams is a gloss I didn’t realise I owned until today! A fairly creamy, rich orange shade which is quite elegant.

Note my pained smile. This is the smile I give the Mother In Law:

I kid, I kid!

(I’m not kidding)

My favourite is the Armani Lip Shimmer, its super pretty.

    Hey Leena

    Thats what I thought – could it have the wrong sticker on it? Because Sunset Strip is definately the orange ‘donatella!’ one isn’t it but I double checked and the label says Sweet Dreams! Tut!
