Fallen leaf: The best orange lipsticks for autumn

There’s no need to be scared of an orange lip.

Gone are the days of associating orange lipstick with spaghetti stains – it’s a sophisticated colour, the softer sister of red.

Where red lipsticks look bold, orange can look a touch more skin tonal, and therefore more flattering.

As we move into autumn, it’s time to switch up makeup looks and reflect the mood and environment around us.

Crisp, browned and fiery leaves are beginning to fill the streets, so let’s ripen and richen – ‘autumnify’, if you will – our lipstick tones.

Enter: orange. From warm chestnuts to clementine reds, these are our top picks.

Dior Rouge Forever in Forever Striking

Get it for £35.

A limited edition punchy orange that won’t budge at all.

This completely transfer-proof range lasts and lasts and lasts – no need to worry about eating your lipstick away over lunch.

Glossier Generation G in Leo

Get it for £14.

Though deep brown in the bullet, this is so sheer when applied it becomes a warm, burnt chestnut – perfect for the hesitant orange wearer.

Nars Air Matte Lip Colour in Morocco

Get it for £25.

A neutral take on orange, this shade is an introduction to orange lips, mimicking the leaves outside.

This formula is great for a blotted lip look too.

MAC Love Me Liquid Lipcolour in My Lips Are Insured

Get it for £22.

Glossy, yet somehow not messy.

This impressive formula from MAC conditions lips while delivering punchy pigment.

An orange-red, it’s a seasonal switch up from pillar-box red, and it leaves a stain behind.

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Saw-C

Get it for £16.

Be quick, as this is being discontinued.

It’s a shame really, as the line had four good and varied orange lipstick shades, but it’s on the way out like the summer.

Saw-C is the most vibrant of options here, so if you like a statement lip, look no further.

E.l.f. SRSLY Satin Lipstick in Persimmon 

Get it for £4.

Not sure if the trend is for you? Try this budget option that’s a safe red-leaning orange.

The satin finish means it can be easily toned down to a whisper of colour.

KimChi Sweet Candy Kisses in Peach Rings

Get it for £14.

Unapologetically orange, this will get heads turning – and compliments rolling in.
