I was initially thrown-off about this idea, too. I thought, that'll be like wearing cheddar cheese on my lips. But for the heck of it, I gave it a try.
It wasn't that bad. It wasn't bad at all. :)

Just like red lipsticks (or any lipstick for that matter), there are things you need to consider when purchasing the orange lipstick for you.
You want it bright? Dark? Coral-y? Almost red? Deep? Pale?
How about the finish? Matte? Creamy? Glossy? Lustre?
These are just some of the things to consider when you're looking for a lipstick in a particular shade, especially something that's out of the ordinary.
Now let me share with you the orange lipsticks that I found that works for me (or at least something that I enjoy wearing).

Remember, there's no such thing as a universal lipstick. You have to look for the lipstick that will work for you. And how do you find it? By trying on as many as you can :)
Please watch out for my individual reviews on these lipsticks. :)
