Orange lipstick: that's Liza Herz on my right; we're wearing the same shade

I could not be more in love with orange lip colour right now. Look! Look how fresh it is on our Beautygeek friend Liza (LEEZA) Herz! She's still uncertain about whether she can really rock this shade (which is, yes, brighter than it seems in the photograph). But I think orange is just a colour that simply requires some eye-adjustment.

We've seen red lips for years; as bold as that look is, it's not unusual. Fuchsia is newer, but we've seen pink on lips before. Orange, however, hasn't been seen like this in decades -- even coral, its easier to wear sister, makes only rare appearances. So gutsy orange is unexpected and uncharted.

This is M.A.C Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Good to Go, $19. It lasts pretty well, given the name, even better over a lip-liner base. Smooth lips to start are a must. Try one of these smooth-lip steps to prep.

Who else is feeling the orange? I know some of you are, as much as I am. Feel free to include your orange-lip-love photo links in the comments! Would love to see your success.
