Top 5 Orange-Red Lipsticks for Summer! ♡

So all weekend, I’ve had a MAJOR orange-red moment. In fact, I’m currently typing this from freshly painted essie clambake nails.

It practically SCREAMS summer.

It also just happens to be so incredibly flattering! I find it makes my lips look bigger, eyes bluer & just so pretty on all skin tones. You can also easily dress it up or down.

In fact, on Saturday, Erik & I grabbed a quick brunch in the neighborhood. I had very little clothes at his place so it was slim pickings, let me tell you. I topped the haphazard outfit with a fiery lip and my rx ray-ban’s & it totally tied together whatever tf I was wearing.

With such a bold warm lip, keep everything else simple. A little golden highlighter on top of the cheekbones, inner-rim eyeliner, brushed brows, & a coat of mascara & you are good to go.

Even better that it’s a less than five minute makeup routine, right?

Welllllll since I was rocking this all weekend long, I figured I’d round up the 5 best. 🙂

ONE }: Wet ‘N’ Wild MegaLast Lipstick in #907 – Purty Persimmon 

{ buy here }

OKAY. SO. Post for another day, but I LOVE Wet ‘N’ Wild’s lipsticks. The quality is VERY high… & the price? A very fine $1.99. It is highly pigmented with a semi-matte finish with awesomestaying power. This is the one I am wearing in the image above!
Price: $1.99 || Semi-Matte Finish

TWO }: Alexis Ren x ColourPop in Little Weapon

{ buy here }

This is one of my favourite lip-products I own. For one, I love Alexis Ren & her collab with Colourpop is one of my FAVOURITES and I have every piece. This is a BRIGHT orange red liquid lipstick with a matte finish & FULL staying power. I wore this to a Lazy Bear date night {aka 9 courses with 9 wines} & it didn’t budge one bit.
Price: $6 || Matte Finish 

THREE }: TopShop Lips in Rio Rio

{ buy here }

This bright lippie is a favourite from one of my favourite muses, Alexa Chung – read what’s in her makeup bag here! The texture is creamy with a matte finish & known for being universally flattering for all skintones. Price: $10 || Matte Finish

FOUR }: Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melon

{ buy here }

This one has a lovely pink tone to it. This unique formula is a mix between a liquid lipstick + a stain + a glossy finish. I love the felt applicator which makes it easy to hug every curve of the lip. It’s lightweight {perf for summer} & stays on forever. Pair with a white bikini, inflatable swan, and a spiked La Croix.
Price: $21 || Glossy Finish

FIVE }: Benefit Cha Cha Tint for Lips & Cheeks

{ buy here }

Benefit is famous for their stains & this one is one of my favourites! In fact, I didn’t expect to like it, but I got my makeup done {for my first c@s photoshoot !!} & was a convert ever since. I love the monotone look with this on both lips and cheeks. You can build it up for a brighter look or use one coat for the office. I’m obsessed with this stuff.
Price: $30 || Stain Finish

+++ BONUS }: Lipliner: Rimmel Exaggerate in Call Me Crazy

{ buy here }

This is my go-to orange red lip liner! I find when you pair it with all of these colours, it adds an insta “Kylie Lip Kit” feel. Not to mention, it’s super inexpensive. I love to put lip liner on both before {extra staying power} AND after {contours with shape & dimension} lipstick. Also LOVE automatic pencils vs manual sharpening ones, esp for travel.
Price: $6.99 || Matte Finish

How about you – digging this colour as much as I am? If so, lmk others I should add to my list! xx Shannon

  • that Monday feeling... even tho I spent all day yesterday thinking it was Monday? Hopefully it’s not the theme of this {extremely cray} week! 🌟 #mondayvibes #pineappleexpress #slsootd
  • another Sunday, another puzzle 🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️ #momentswithsunday
  • Did anyone else have a full week of Mondays or was it just me?! Either way, I’m cheersing HARD to the weekend 🔆  #tgiff
  • After trying all of the natural @skylar fragrances, I settled with CAPRI - sparkling, sweet citrus ✨🏝🍋🌟 it was a scent that made me instantly happy and transported me to the Mediterranean, beachside, in a belted swimsuit, cat eye sunnies, & a huge hat with a limoncello spritz in hand. 🥂 Instant good vibes and I love how it fades to an irresistibly sweet finish on me. I’ve been layering it with Isle from the sampler pack below and some coconut-vanilla body lotions! I love that they are non-toxic, cruelty fre, & hypoallergenic. Use the code SCENTS10 for 10% off {& be sure to get the sampler pack so you can try them all - the cost of the $20 pack will be applied to the full size}! 🍋 🌟 #ad #skylarbody #ambskyfull #ambcollab #madeinla
  • my lil urban jungle cat 💖 Last night, @erikschuchard brought home a TON of plants: we now have succulents galore, some small trees, cacti, ferns, & my fave: palms & lots of them 🌴 now I have to find some chic planters and have no idea where to begin. Any ideas?! #blackcatsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #cornerofmyhome
  • Tennis, anyone? 🎾 skipped the gym today and hit the tennis courts with @erikschuchard instead! ✨ #lovelove #mysf #slsfit
  • Good scents come naturally and I’m loving @skylar lately. 🍃 It’s a non-toxic, hand crafted perfume from LA. I love that they are all natural and cruelty free not to mention hypoallergenic & both paraben / phthalate free.
Let’s talk the scents - can you guess which full sized one I chose?:
CAPRI: sparkly citrus with notes of musk, dewy rose, & neroli
ARROW: seductive night jasmine with warm vanilla, & patchouli
CORAL: flirty & fruity with grapefruit with apple blossom
ISLE: clean and refreshing with bergamot, sandalwood, & cardamom
MEADOW: elegant and feminine with tuberose & orange blossom.
they are so pretty on their own but they layer very well together. I personally am loving mixing Arrow with Meadow and Capri with Isle.
What’s really rad is that you can try all of their 5 scents in the comfort of your home before you commit to a full size! This set is $20 but when you decide which one you want, that $20 goes into the full sized perfume. ~*but wait there’s more*~ you can use the promo code SCENTS10 for a 10% discount!
OK SO- which are you?: spicy, fruity, clean, floral, or sparkly?! ✨
