Orange-toned red lipsticks flatter warm-toned skin.

If your skin looks better in gold jewellery than silver, in yellow or orangey-red clothing than blues, and if you tend to tan under the sun without burning, warm red-orange lipsticks may be the right reds for you.

My NC25 to NC30 skin falls in the warm spectrum and these lipsticks flatter my skin colour overall.

However, be warned. Make sure your pearly whites are pearly white, otherwise go for neutral or more blue-tinged tones to flatter yellow teeth.

MAC Powerhouse Lipstick (Discontinued)

This is one of my earliest purchases from MAC. MAC Powerhouse Lipstick is a bright orange red with a tinge of pink compared to the rest. It has an awesome amplified formula that lasts ages on the lips.

MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

If you're a fan of the 1920's retro look, MAC Lady Danger Lipstick should be in your arsenal. It is a cult fave shade in the MAC range. It is a fiery orange red with a matte finish. MAC has released a matching Shadescent that smells of a gorgeous woody floriental. You should check it out!

NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Next is cult fave NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.It is an orange red that appears more matte and a lil more orange than MAC Lady Danger Lipstick. They are close dupes though.

MAC Von Teese Lipstick (LE)

Red lip enthusiast Dita Von Teese released her red lipstick MAC Von Teese Lipstick in a previous collection. It is a bright red that leans a little pink compared to the rest swatched. It comes in a matte formula. Love it.

MAC Port Red Lipstick (LE)

Now to the frosty reds, MAC Port Red Lipstick is a bright red with an red orange frost. Its an absolutely gorgeous colour and was unfortunately limited edition.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick (LE)

Rihanna previously collaborated with MAC to release her MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick. It is a limited edition shade that is another frosty red that leans more orange than MAC Port Red Lipstick above. Truly gorgeous colour.
