Orange Lipstick FOTD

Fall is in the air and my fascination with orange and orange red lipsticks is at an all time high.  Now that I've completely lost what little of a summer tan I got, I'm pale as a...well you can see...lol.

Feeling a little inspired today, I decided to stray from my regular smokey bronze eye and nude lip.  I tried a modern take on a retro style and did a neutral cat eye and bright orangey red lip....and the best part about it is I got this lipstick at the Dollar Store...for...drumroll... $1.25:)  This is the second lipstick I've bought from a dollar store, and I have to say I am quite pleased with this ones performance.  It is #15 from the brand Profusion.  The formula is creamy and matte and the pigmentation is quite good.  The lasting power is around the same as most lipsticks 2-4 hours with eating and drinking.

I'd been eyeing up Mac Morange, Vegas Volt, and Neon Orange, and was hoping I could find a dupe for one of them.  Judging by online swatches this one most resembles Neon Orange, but with much more of a red tone, which I think makes it a bit more wearable.  Let me know what you think XOXO Charis:)
