Expressive, exotic Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and warmth
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.
Estée Lauder ‘Pure Color’ Vivid Shine Lipstick in Mirrored Orchid [$26] This lipstick is SO lovely…it doesn’t FEEL like lipstick. It’s comfortable to wear and the color is AMAZING. Thanks to colored pearls that combine to neutralize the lip tone, it makes all shades look great on every skin tone.
Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis a Lèvres Glossy Stain in Porpre Preview [$34] THIS is my SPIRIT ANIMAL. I am in love with this glossy stain and I have 6 shades to prove it. This particular one is spot on in the orchid department and it lasts FOREVAHHHH. It combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain. Just fabulous..
Maybelline Color Elixir Gloss in Dashing Orchid [$6.99] You may have seen my review about these new innovative glosses a few weeks back. They are hands down, the BEST drugstore gloss I have used in a LONG time. Very comfortable to wear, super duper shine and long wearing to boot. The Orchid shade is absolutely gorgeous….CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipstick in Divine (330) [$5.99] If you are looking for a lipstick with STAYING POWER this is the one for you – BONUS it’s less than $6! Lip Perfection does an amazing job of delivering amazing color that is comfortable AND lasting. Divine is an extraordinary shade that I have seen in action many times on various skintones.
