I only own red lipstick/lip colours but going to a wedding soon and a coral or orangey red would look so much better with my outfit. Anyone recommend something? Preferably not too expensive as I won't use it much. Help oh wise ones!

Bobbie Brown Artstick in sunset orange or hot orange are both lovely and long lasting, not too drying.

Nars Heatwave, Nars Lana, MAC Lady Danger as suggested above, Tom Ford Christiano or Guerlain Jenna are all lovely orange-reds.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I know there's an argument that you get what you pay for but when it's just occasional will check out the No7 one I think! Some of my favourites are Revlon and Rimmel compared to more expensive brands. I find Mac drying. Guess a trip to somewhere like boots or superdrug is a good idea...

I second this. Don't normally wear orange but this is lovely - wore it all the time last year especially on my hols!

Yes, I believe I have this one too!

That Boots Gay Geranium is an old classic. I think they tried to discontinue it and got lots of letters asking them not to!

This one by Kiko is lovely and only £6.90

Oh gawd I have this too! I appear to like coral, a lot.

I have a lovely one from Boots 17 I think called Coral kiss but it is a bit shimmery and they may not do it now anyway.

Bourjois peach at the beach is gorgeous and my favourite coral. It's really hydrating and glossy too and cheap.

Thanks everyone!!

Rimmel in Love with Ginger is at the orangey end of the spectrum. I have a lovely Maybelline matte one that's bright coral but very flattering. I'll look out the shade name for you when I get home.

Bourjois lip crayon Orange Punch - the packaging looks terrible/overly bright but it's a gorgeous coral on
