Orange lipstick for medium skin

Can anyone recommend an orange lipstick that will go well with Asian medium skin? Now, I'm not talking about red with a tint of orange. I mean orange orange. So badly do I want to be able to pull off this color, but I don't really know which shades would work best with my skin color (I am an NC20 in MAC). As far as types go, I would prefer a matte or low-shimmer, low-shine type of lipstick. When it comes to lipstick, I'm not very fond of shine and gloss.


Thank you!

Take a peek at the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Color of the Year Creme Lipstick in Tangerine Tango.  So far, lots of positive reviews and a lot of the BT community found the color to be quite flattering on (including myself).





To have a more matte or stain look, blot gently with a paper towel. 


Other Suggestions:  Shiseido Perfect Rouge in OR418 - Day Lily

Illamasqua  Lipstick in Flare (bright Orange)

MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense in either 39 or 40.

Shu Uemura rouge unlimited in OR540 (for a more subtle; not as out there bold as some of the other colors suggested).


Hope that helps.


Hello nightknight!


I love the recommendations you have so far! Ran8 is correct, try some of the Pantone shades since they are SO flattering and pretty! Coming from someone who doesn't normally wear orange or tangerine shades.. I love it! I've actually branched out from my normal dark reds or light pink lipsticks and bought a few Sephora Collection lip shades as well:


Lip Attitude Glamour

Coral Coquette #3

Coral Coquette 03


This is a really nice light sheer sort of peachy-pink tone, slightly more on the peach side but still very pretty!


Rouge Cream Lipstick

Jealous 07

Jealous 07


It Girl 06

It Girl 06


Or even try a soft orangey gloss for just a light tangerine-orange color!


MUFE Lab Shine Lipgloss


Diamond Collection - D20



Star Collection - S24

I really like Golden Brandy, it's a Clinque lipstick. It's really pretty and super flattering!
