Spring Color Trend Report: Rock some Orange Lips!

Let me start off by saying that I have never in my life owned and orange lipstick. That is saying a lot considering the size of my makeup collection and my many years of cosmetics love!

As I have continued to evolve with fashion trends and the simple act of discovering what looks good on me, I am turning more and more to the orange "family": corals and peaches. It all started with peachy-pink lip glosses: Mac Prrr lipglass and elf's mineral lip gloss in Fierce and blushes :Milani Luminous blush. Then I discovered that true peach worked for me too: products like LORAC's Plush luxe baked blush and Scott Barnes's Provocative Lip Slick. Next up, enter the Corals: Milani's baked blush in Corallina. So, as you can imagine, the next logical step is to gradually transition into orange. My gateway orange lippie: Revlon Lipbutter in Tutti Frutti.

Not only are these fun peachy/coral/orange shades complimentary to my fair skin tone and blue eyes, but also they are just darn fun to wear! Be it on your lips or the color of a cute bag or sandals, orange is the color for Spring/Summer 2012!

Recently while I was flipping through the pages of the most recent J Crew Spring catalog, I couldn't help but notice the bright orange lipstick on at least half of the models in the catalog. What a beautiful and fresh look! That is when I realized that I am not the only one loving orange lately. While orange lips have graced the runways for the past few years, I really hadn't see orange lips in "real life"...until now. The pages of JCrew mark orange's introduction into the mainstream. The models looked so fresh and natural with their orange lipstick and classic clothes.

Ready to try this trend? Bari Cosmetic's "Love my Lips" line has a fabulous orange lipstick that you can try: #492 Orange Sorbet. For trendy makeup, sometimes a value cosmetics line is the best way to try it out without a huge financial commitment. "Love My Lips" lipsticks retail for $1.09 at Walmart and on the Bari website. This shade is part of the permanent collection.

Will you be trying orange lips this Spring or Summer? What trend are you most excited about?
