Last, but not least, here’s my collection of lips colors that lean more orange and nude. I’ve included the few terracotta and coral shades I own in this category.
I don’t like concealer or “blank out your lips” nude colors so I only have two (e.l.f. Natural Nymph and Wet n Wild Bare It All). The “nudes” I have are mostly very sheer shades that add shine but not a lot of color.
The oranges, however, are quickly becoming my favorite category of lip products. I don’t have many and the ones I do have tend to be on the sheerer side. I’ve tried a few but I really can’t pull off bright, opaque, orange lips. I prefer an understated, natural orange tint (if there’s such a thing).
Nicka K Orange Tint is a very versatile true orange (think Crayola crayon Orange) that you can wear full blast or blotted for a more subtle, orange stain. The only thing I don’t care for is the scent which is strongly fruity/floral but, hey, it’s 99 cents. And Palladio Orange and Revlon Tutti Frutti are great options if you’re looking for affordable sheer, glossy oranges.
