Hello! Tangerine, orange, coral – shades I literally can’t get enough of right now. It all started when the wonderful Michael Kors mandarin bags (like this one, swoon) came into work and I became rather obsessed with them. Then I bought MAC Lady Danger and, well, my makeup bag has been full of all things orange since.
As just mentioned, MAC Lady Danger is the lipstick that kicked it all off and has been my most worn lipstick of the past month or so. It’s such a gorgeous red-orange and I think it’s so flattering on, as it’s quite an intense shade but would suit a range of skintones. Next are two shades from Topshop: Topshop Oh La La lipstick is a lighter, more peachy coral shade and Topshop Hedonist Lipstick is a true, bold bright orange. I adore the Topshop makeup range and these lipsticks last so well and are amazing for the price. Finally, I know it’s limited edition but Boots still have it online, so I had to include Chanel La Favourite. It’s a velvet finish lipstick and although I use it sparingly so it lasts, it does feel wonderful on the lips whenever I slick it on!
I seem to be collecting blushes recently, but the two I always come back to to get my orange fix are Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso coral (which is what it says on the tin) and Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef (a brighter orange-coral tone). Both have great formulas and last well on the cheeks, which is great as I have a hard time keeping blush on my cheeks as it tends to fade quickly.
Finally, there’s nothing like a summery pop of colour on your nails, especially with a tan (which I never have, but do appreciate on other people!) so I do love these three shades. I picked up Models Own Coral Reef in their recent sale and it’s a great slightly pinky-coral shade and, as with all Models Own polishes, is a great formula! Ciate Hopscotch (half price too!) is a lovely bright orange shade and Nails Inc Draycott Place is more of a intense mandarin, both of which are gorgeous on the nails!
So they’re all of the makeup products that have been fulfilling my mandarin needs over the past month. Some day I’ll get my mitts on that Michael Kors bag too and be happy ever after…
