    Beautiful! Blood Orange is such a gorgeous shade on the lips. I actually don't think I own any orangey-reds so these recs were very helpful! I really want to get my hands on the cult classic Lady Danger, though the cheaper ones seem like great alternatives!

    "It's fucking red" is the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title in my bloglovin' lol Orangey reds look beautiful on you, Coco! I have trouble wearing this kind of shade sometimes, sometimes I like it but other times I think it looks awful on me haha

    Lady Danger <3 I'm a little fearful that this will be too warm for me, so I'm just mixing MAC Morange with Revlon True Red for the time being. You look so gorgeous in blood oranges, is there nothing you can't wear? πŸ˜‰ x

    They all look stunning! I love the finish of lady danger and the bite one, might have to add those 2 to my wish list! Thanks for doing this post, I've always struggled to find this colour as everything seems to look either too red or too orange on me!

    I've been contemplating on Lady Danger for a while, and I was so close on getting it but I showed my mom (oh god, I'm 21 but it's my mom you know) and she said it was too orange.

    To be honest, these all look the same to me. Haha! I guess they all differ in formula and quality. It's nice to know there are drugstore and high-end options for lipsticks, since I tend to go nuts over them.
    By the way, when I saw the title, I was so going to link you to that reference. Good thing I spotted your link to it πŸ˜›

    • TheBeautyMilk

      20th Jul 2014 - 5:31 pm

      Definitely! Like I mentioned in the first paragraph, the nuances are very subtle (darker, shinier, etc.) and I was disappointed to find that I owned so many similar lipsticks. Then again, blood orange implies an orange-red which in turn implies a warm toned red so there isn't much room for variation. Still, I'm happy I'm able to recommend this shade of lipstick to people with very different budgets.

    you know i actually only have the revlon lip crayon out of this whole lineup, and i LOVE a bright orange-red lipstick, so that means the rest of these are going on my shopping list for when i hit the states. i know you made a point about them all being basically the same shade but it's an amazing shade and i can see why you own five of them in different formulas.

    What a gorgeous roundup, Coco! I'm such a sucker for orange reds. Was about it say that I surprisingly have none of these, when I remembered that I own Purty Persimmon! Must wear it sometime soon. All of these look stunning on you! xo

    I've always thought that blood orange was a bit too bold for me so I never really gave it a go…but I think I must try at least one!
