Perfect summer shade for darker skin

I am on the hunt to find the perfect orange for quite sometime now. Either its too pale, too flashy or too red, it just doesn't work until I noticed a nice orange lipstick at SEPHORA from their in house collection. At first, I was skeptical because it looked very bright. I decided to get it and figure it out at home. Then magic happened, it just might be THE color I was looking for! No ok, well it's not a pure orange more like a reddish orange but it works for me!

SEPHORA COLLECTION SHADE #M23

PROS: 

  • the lipstick is matte but non drying 
  • very reasonable price (16$ CAD)
  • wear it with a lighter brown pencil to help the color stay longer 

CONS: 

  • Because it is not dry on the lips it moves around a lot so you will need to reapply often 
  • I have a hard time with the smell. I cant put my finger on it but its quite strong
  • Orange is non forgiving and shows every detail of your lips so make sure you exfoliate before
