Sonya Rykiel Ad-inspiration- Orange Lips
Joining Hall of Famers such as Bobbi Brown's Orange and MAC's Morange and CB96 lipsticks are 3 more citrus stunners that are sure to please!
Swatches from L to R: YSL Rouge Pure Shine Lipstick #94Blood Orange,
YSL Rouge Pur Pure Lipstick #21 Indian Orange, Chanel Allure Lipstick Genial
YSL #94Blood Orange
YSL's Blood Orange #94 is fresh from the current Solaris Collection. The coverage is sheer with shimmer but the deep orange pigmentation lives up to its name.
Normally I'm put off by shimmer, however the sheer shine coverage conquers this lippie!
YSL #21 Indian Orange
Indian Orange has been in YSL's line up for sometime now but as the Summer 2010 calls for the brightest lipstick shades and seeing as Indian Orange has been sold out in the NYC Sephora's for some time- this is lipstick is definitely the underdog that is now casting a light on all the newbies!
Indian Orange packs a more "true orange" color that its brand sister Blood Orange. The payoff is long lasting with brighter with layers. Quite vibrant like the Rykiel Advert.
Genial is the breakout star among the sheerest of the sheers. This apricot-twist to the orange lip game is playful and punchy. While YSL's Indian Orange would probably be reserved for a day at the office, and YSL's Blood Orange would kick off an evening girls -night-out look. Genial would be my playful weekend Brooklyn or DUMBO Flea lippie with my vintage Valentino day dress.

A couple years ago I stumbled upon Anna Sui's beauty line at Victoria's Secret. The VS at Fashion Valley was having their Semi-annual and I got my hands on some pretty presh lipsticks for the price of mall pretzel. The Anna Sui Gloss Lipsticks in Orange and Burgandy were my fave. I also followed up and bought the rose scented Face Powder off of Ebay for little to nothing too.
Since then, the line was exclusive only to Asia ( other than visiting the Anna Sui boutiques) but now we in states are in luck!
With the launch of Urban Outfitters beauty site, you can order Anna Sui cosmetics!
There is a pleathora of lipsticks, glosses, eyeliners and accessories ( black boudoir molded mirror anyone?) available online.
