Orange Crush

We have a serious aversion to anything orange flavored. The thought of drinking an Orange Crush soda is almost as disgusting as licking the bottom of our shoe. (Orange Creamsicles and Bayer Children’s Chewable Aspirin are equally detestable.)

However, this month, we’re crushing on orange big time.

Our new favorite bring-on-the-Spring cheek shade is orange—and it looks oh-so-fab. While slightly scary in the pan, these shades of orange look nothing of the sort on our cheeks:


Three Custom Color Lip & Cheek Stain in Poppy: Super sheer color that can be layered for more coverage.

Cargo Blush in Rome: Add to apples for a quick pop of color that screams “fresh.” Be sure to tap excess product off brush before applying.

Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy: A water based push-up gel stick that’s perfect for travel.

All of these bring easy, natural warmth to our springtime look without much effort. Just don’t make us drink them.

  • I am addicted to Tarte Cheek Stain and am intrigued by this shade!

    Do you have any pictures of it on? I’d love to see what it looks like.

  • Wow, I wear Tipsy cheek stain on a regular basis, and unless it was completely reformulated, it is not at all orange! It’s a very pretty, wearable coral-pink with a tiny bit of shimmer.

  • Sounds pretty! Got any pics?
    my mom hates orange stuff too as she had have this orange flavoured medicine for like a year bleurgh!

  • Hi Amanda, you’re right! These colors look crazy-orange in the containers, but when you put them on, they’re gorgeous. I love how Tipsy has the shimmer in it!

    Laurie and Soph, I’m currently on a business trip and don’t have my camera with me, but I’ll post a picture soon so you can see the comparison…

  • I have the same aversion to orange! Grape flavor doesn’t go well either! I can’t wait to see you in that Orange though!

  • Could this Cargo blush be similar to discounted Pout’s Totty that Blogdorf Goodman raved about?

  • Love the crazy orange.
