8 Happy ORANGE Products For Spring

Orange is the color of Gluttony- one of the 7 deadly sins. The only sin I don't commit. Really.
Frank Sinatra thought it's the happiest color. He's right. I'd rather stare at orange juice than take Prozac; or lie on a shrink's couch talking about feelings.
I think it's the color of my school farewell party, because I wore orange silk pants & an orange spaghetti top (with a black coat & black slip-ons, of course!) But still, orange pants! I felt so hip & happening. I look at the photos now & think: "What the fudge were you thinking, you silly pumpkin?!!"

Since ORANGE is one of the 'IT' colors of the season, I picked out some orange make-up products you might like too:
  1. Lipstick ~ INGLOT #278. A true orange lipstick.Will do a look with this sometime.
  2. Nail Polish ~ Bourjois So Laque Tangerine Fatal (Swatched here)
  3. Eyeshadows ~ Sleek Paraguaya Palette. Swatched here. LOTD here
  4. Blush ~ Sleek Pan Tao (Swatched here)
  5. Bronzer ~ MAC Refined Golden from To The Beach Collection. Because it's packed in orange & because a touch of bronzer compliments orange blush. 
  6. Lip Balm ~ Maybelline Lip Smooth Color & Care Mandarin. If orange lipstick is too daring for you, an orange tint lip balm is a juicy alternative.
  7. Blush ~ Majolica Majorca Puff De Cheek in Apricot Macaron (Swatched here)
  8. Blush ~ MAC Peaches (Swatched here). Scared of orange? Go peach.
HAPPY Spring, beauties!

Any Orange products you love?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
