An Orange Obsession


I'm a big fan of orange; being a pale girl I always thought it suits me, and especially with make-up it really brightens my complexion and gives it a bit of colour! This became especially obvious to me on my latest shopping spree where I ended up leaving with all orange items.

First up is a beautiful crochet sun dress from Next. I don't ever usually shop in Next but I went in with my Mum to look for her, and the colour and style of this really caught my eye. Apparently it's not the most flattering item on me, but I absolutely love the colour and when it gets a little warmer I know this will be my go-to dress.

We then hit the Selfridges Beauty Hall, and whilst it wasn't intentional, I ended up walking away with a couple of orange beauty bits. I scoured the MAC stand for a while and finally Morange popped into my head after being undecided on it for quite a while. I've worn it already and it's such a gorgeous true orange, with the fantastic formula and pigmentation we all know from MAC.

I also decided on a new NARS blush after being so impressed with my last purchase, I've worn it so much since. I did pick out a one which had sadly been discontinued (although still on display?!) which was a little more red toned, but I picked out the most similar, Liberte, which I've actually seen on a few blogs and really loved the look of. If used delicately this gives the most beautiful sheen of colour on the cheeks, and it's a great one for all skin tones too.

What do you think of my buys? Are you a fan of orange?

  5. I absolutely love orange! Especially when it comes to springtime, it just suits the season so perfectly. Shame that that NARS discontinued that blush shade because it looks gorgeous :)

  10. i LOVE orange as well! i hardly ever wear it in clothing (i think i own maybe two orange tops and that's about it) but it looks amazing on the lips and cheeks and wearing orange blush always puts me in a good mood. i've had my eye on NARS gina and gilda for a while so i think i'll have to pick up one of them next, but liberte looks lovely too! and of course morange, i don't have my it myself but i feel like it's only a matter of time before i pick it up.
