Think about the most underrated characters from your go-to movies. Now think about how much you love those characters, and how you’re vying for them to get the credit that they deserve. Orange is that character in the world of lipsticks — constantly overshadowed by the pinks and reds. But we’re here to change that.
Orange is such a versatile lip-colour. And contrary to popular belief, it can flatter different skin-tones as long as you choose the right shade. That’s why we’re rounding up 8 of our cult-favourite orange lipstick shades of all time, and telling you what makes them so special.
Orange is for everyone — that’s final. But picking a shade that you truly like is tricky. We’re making things easier for you — from siena to burn, here’s a line-up of the best orange lipstick shades for Indian skin.
MyGlamm K.PLAY Flavoured Lipstick - Orange Spin
Looking for a cruelty-free, budge-proof lipstick enriched with the benefits of skincare? This cream-textured lippie boasts a burnt-orange payoff, and contains Vitamin E to moisturise, rejuvenate, and strengthen the lips throughout the day. It endows you with a lustre no other fruit-flavoured tube can rival, and melts into your lips seamlessly.
This one belongs to the same range as the previous lippe; but it’s packed with the flavour of mangoes instead of oranges. It’s bright, vibrant, and adds an instant pop of colour to your look.
MyGlamm K.PLAY Flavoured Lipstick - Apple Crunch
Looking for a bold shade of red with orange-ish undertones? Apple Crunch is for you. It glides onto your lips streak-free in one swipe for a crease-free finish.
If you mix your brown, orange, and red lippies to create your very own unique shade like Kylie Jenner claims to do, we’re making the process easier for you. This one’s a spicy orange-red shade with brown-ish undertones — see? Everything you love in one tube.
Matte-based lipsticks can feel dry and sticky on the lips. Doesn’t it latch onto the lips like glue? But these formulas are redeemable — provided you buy the right one. And that’s why we’re introducing you to this non-sticky matte-textured lippie that will pair perfectly with your sundress. It’s a bergamot orange which dispatches colour to the lips instantly for a demi-matte finish. And…if that isn’t enough — the lippie is a special blend of mineral and plant-based waxes for a smooth and precise application, and contains special texturising agents for a luxurious, non-greasy texture!
MyGlamm LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick - Zoomer
This lip-colour is the lovechild of orange and red — you get the best of both worlds. It’s infused with Moringa Oil — so your lips are always hydrated, supple, and healthy. They're smudge-proof and transfer-proof, and carry the promise of an opaque, smooth, and crease-free application. Not only is this one from the brand's LIT range — Shraddha Kapoor’s favourite — they have been tested on Sidharth Malhotra! So you know they're really cruelty-free and vegan, because, hey, he's the biggest advocate for animals, and animal testing is a big no-no for the brand.
Which orange colour lipstick are you swiping right on?
What skin-tone suits orange lipstick?
Anyone can wear this colour — just look out for flattering undertones. If you have a lighter skin-tone, pick an orange with reddish undertones. This pick works for medium skin-tones too. For olive skin-tones, choose a tangerine or burnt-orange to neutralise the warmth. Those with darker skin-tones must avoid lighter shades of orange as they can wash you out. Try bright corals or vibrant orange-reds. And, again, the best orange lipstick is the one you wear most confidently.
Does orange lipstick make teeth look yellow?
This colour might make your teeth look yellow — this is because orange and yellow are complementary colours. They lie right next to each other on the colour-wheel. You can try layering a little bit of gloss — pink or red — to counter the tinge effectively.
Which lipstick shade is most attractive?
This is subjective. It depends on how you carry the colour – if you think red suits you better than nude or orange, that’s the colour for you.
