Best long wearing orange/red lipstick?

Looking for a lipstick to meet my following desires:

-Orange/red color (warm undertone skin)

-Long wearing (this is a must!)

-Doesn't have a "gritty" feel after a couple of hours

-No glitter, sheen, or hint of sparkle


Hope someone can save the day!

NARS Heat Wave meets all of te above criteria -- it's a matte shade (no sparkles), so it's longer wearing. It's a very orange red, too -- it's my favorite. It can be slightly dry, so make sure that your lips are hydrated beforehand (but not glossy, or else it won't stay on).


If you don't mind spending a bit more ($6 more), Armani Rouge d'Armani in 401 is similarly red-orange and the formula is designed to be long-wearing...this stuff doesn't come off. It's my favorite to use when I know I won't be able to reapply. Temptalia reviewed this specific shade, but I can't link the can easily find it on google, though!

You should definitely check out the YSL stains or the YSL coral extreme. The stains are like lipsticks but stay on alot longer and have gorgeous colors!!! Hope this helps!


Hi Spyski-


I also wanted to add to that already great suggestion that you have. Also, Kat Von D makes a great red/orange shade called Stiletto. It's a really pretty shade that has TONS of pigment and it also has a satin finish.

Try Stila's Color Balm in Valentina, it's a poppy orange color:

Stila - Color Balm Lipstick


It's super smooth in wear and application like a lip balm, but gives the rich color and look of lipstick.


If you wanted something more on the sheer side, but can be buildable, try Tarte's lip stain in Spirited:


Tarte - LipSurgence™ Lip Tint


It's long wearing, comes in an easy to apply "crayon" like form, and allows you to wear the bold color in a much more subtle/"day time friendly" way.
