Forget about black, orange is the new red…especially when it comes to lipstick. Citrus-tinged reds deliver an equally powerful punch as classic blue-based scarlets, but with a kicky modern tang that elicits instant “I want some!” envy. One of my faves is Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in It Girl, $15.50. It delivers intense, long-lasting pigment that doesn’t dehydrate lips. Using the patented application technique of swiping on a base layer, followed by lightly blotting with a tissue, and applying another ‘top coat’ layer, I find it stays put all day. Have you found an orange-red lip colour you can’t live without? Tell me, please! I’m always looking to add to my collection.
