The Best Orange Lipstick For Women Of Color

sheeq cosmetics just out orange lipstick

Umm…in case you didn’t notice, I am totes obsessed with lipsticks (and maybe this green eyeliner too). I have hundreds of lipsticks in an array of vibrant colors. I am not your boring nude lipstick wearing beauty blogger #ShadeNoShade. Partly because I am now also obsessed with the black and white trend, so adding a pop of color to my look each day is a necessity.

The orange lipstick trend has been on my list to try since last fall and it’s officially becoming my new favorite hue. Who know it could look so amazing on a brown girl?

SHEEQ Cosmetics sent over a few brushes for me to try (I actually kinda begged for them, I’d heard great things and I felt left out), and the owner, Melissa Hibbert, included a few lipsticks to my surprise.

She is called “Just Out” for obvious reasons. Doesn’t it look like I’m just out and about, or just out here looking amazing, or just out in these freaking streets being awesome? That’s exactly how I felt when I wore it last week.

Tons of compliments flooded my way, and of course I gladly accepted. My face felt and looked very bright and vibrant. I know I keep using those two words, but that’s really how I felt. This hue was a little shocking to see at first. It’s REALLY bright. But, five seconds into my stare, I fell in love with this hue. What’s even better is that it’s a matte cream lipstick. So it’s a perfect formula for me. I love a good matte but in reality that means you are not eating a cheeseburger anytime soon.

One application lasted about four hours, which is decent for a lipstick. I get a little worried when my lipstick won’t come off! I mean, what’s in it that makes it last so long?

I’m not quite as brave to true a blue, but it’s next on my list. What new hues have you been inserting into your beauty bags?

Here’s a few more orange lipsticks that you could rock this Spring!

Disclosure: I received samples from SHEEQ Cosmetics for editorial consideration.

    This looks exactly like wet n’ wild’s purty persimmon which is a close dupe to mac’s lady danger, and YAS HONEY it looks fab on us dark skinned gals!! I’m all about orange this spring, I want to try that new KAT VOD D liquid lipstick in orange, and since it’s my birthday in a few days ( I tell me myself this to justify my insane purchasing lately) I may pick it up.

    I have been orange lipstick obsessed since the ’90′s when I discovered an orange lipstick by Flori Robert’s (Jazz Orange I think). From then on out, it was nothing but orange lipstick for me, as it worked for me & my complexion. I tried other colors that looked equally as good; it was something about that orange though. I will definitely have to give SHEEQ Cosmetics a try. By the way, the Just Out looks fab on you!

  7. I love a bright lip. It just completes a look or if you don’t feel like wearing a lot of makeup, a bright lip just brightens your day. I’m currently wearing Beauty Bite Blood Orange Matte Cream Stick. It’s great that it’s one of the picks on your list. It’s been a few hours and its great!
