With the festive season nearly upon us, you might feel tempted to brighten up your winter wardrobe with a festive plum, cherry, or berry red lipstick – but hold your horses, because this season’s lipstick trend couldn’t be further removed from the traditional winter colour palette.
This November, fashion moguls have turned a blind eye to the dark nights and chill winds by opting instead for a bright, summery and wholly unconventional make-up look.
Celeb trend-setters, including the likes of Solange Knowles and spunky pop singer Ke$ha, have been spotted playing with tangerines, apricots, tomatoes and carrots – and we’re not talking about some bizarre food-fight.
We’re talking bright orange lipstick.
Here we talk you through some cheap ways to get the tangerine dream, without looking like a trick or treater gone wrong…
Korres Mango Butter Lipstick
If you want a rich, intense colour with a high-shine wet look, Korres is for you. It also comes with an SPF factor of 10, promising well-moisturised and protected lips. Choose from:
- Orange brown
- Orange red.
Expert tip: rich orange shades like these best compliment those with darker, olive-coloured skin.

No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick
Chill winds equals chapped lips and the best way to protect that pout is to use a moisturising lipstick. No7 Moisture Drench is hypo-allegenic, fragrance free and even SPF 15 (should we be lucky enough to need it). This lipstick also comes in a range of exciting orange shades, including:
- 16 Coral whisper – a tropicana yellow
- 20 Grape – a deep terracotta orange
- 26 Posy – orange blushed with pink.
Expert tip: orange lipstick is fantastic for adding instant brightness to a pale face, but it should be teamed with nude eye-shadow to avoid a colour overload.
