Trend forecasts for Spring 2011 – Matte Orange Lips

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 17 - 2010

If there’s one ‘trend’ I could do without.  Matte orange lips pretty much sums it up.

Big hair and bright, orange lips were the order of the day for Marc by Marc Jacobs’ fun, colorful collection for Spring 2011.

Really… no, really.  Thanks.

Not only the hardest formula for us gals to wear whilst going about our daily whatevers… but let’s do it in orange too shall we?

What I wanna know is this…

Does it really matter? I’m not sure I pay much attention to seasonal trends… I just wear whatever the hell I want.  I guess I’d appreciate it if companies don’t go ALL OUT on the orange for their Spring collections, but meh… whatever, guess it’ll save me money right?

Do you follow so-called trends or even take much inspiration from them?

    Oh dear, I have to admit, I would never wear an orange as strong as that applied as thickly as that but I’ve found a pale orange matte lipstick that looks pretty good! It’s far more subtle, in fact before I’ve done the finger-blend post-application it is a bit scary looking. Post blend however.. I have to say I love it! I don’t blindly follow trends but I do like trying things out if they appeal to me and if they work with my colouring and so on, why not? I hope that doesn’t qualify me as a fashion dozey ;-)

    I don’t follow any of the seasonal trends, every year it seems to be corals and pastels anyway. & on the odd occasion they bring out something like this which I don’t think we will ever catch on to. Catwalk yes, everyday, no.

    I’m a bit of a tragic for orange and coral make-up anyway, so I’m probably a bit on the outside curve when it comes to liking this one.

    I don’t know about the super matte finish though. Satin, sure. Gloss, of course. Mega matte in a difficult colour? Pass!

    I disagree, it’s an easy formula to wear as matte lipstick are generally very long lasting (e.g. Illamasqua lipstick or MAC Matte finishes)

    I could not give a monkey about trends, whether it’s makeup or fashion which is probably why I look frumpy all the time. I am a big big big big big big fan of orange lips and this photo is absolutely gorgeous, amazing colour. Not a chance in this world I could wear mega matte orange lips though. Orange lips should be juicy and you should want to kiss them :)

    That looks clownish…I find it strange when they release a seasonal trend lipstick such as this and declare it on everybody…I would understand if it was a palette of select colors for spring so that you could select what suits you according to your skintone. I don’t believe in declaring 1 2 or 3 shades at the IT shades for the season…

    I wear what looks good on me, and what I feel like wearing, whatever makes me bloom for that time of the year will have to do :)

    I never follow the ‘trends’ and just go with whatever I am feeling for the day. May be smokey eyes one day and mascara & lipgloss the other! x

  9. I would never wear a lip like that, but I think it’ll be dulled down a bit for us consumers… time to whip out our coral and peach lippies for spring (though, when is that not in style?).

    Got to be honest, I don’t follow the trends at all, I just try to wear makeup that enhances my ‘natural beauty’ (yeah, natural like leatherette!). I’m in my 40s now and I just think I can end up looking like Mutton if I’m not careful.

    That said, I can still rock a smokey eye with the best of them!

    I’m not sure about orange, I expect it would look as if I had been kissing sand.

    BUT I do think I could find a decent shade of orange but by the time I’ve done that, the trend would be over and matte lips as a rule are something I never do.

    I think it’d depend on the trend…A lot of what comes down the runway isn’t directly translatable to everybody’s real life, but it can still be inspiring. The way I see it, trends come from this inspiration…so maybe some of us WILL be wearing orange lipstick come spring, though hopefully it will be a formula and shade that suits us!
    Actually I thought this orange lip trend was supposed to have already happened this past summer, so maybe we are in for another round….

    Matte lips? Yes. Definitely.

    I love matte lips. Revlon’s matte lipsticks are very nice, and easy to wear. I especially like their bright red shade, it looks awsome.
    I never follow trends, I wear whatever I like. However, I do like orange lipstick, even in this color. It actually looks really good on me. My skintone goes very well with orange.

    I think such trends only look good on the catwalk. On normal folk? Very clowny!

    The only people I know who follow trends are people who create them or work in fashion. Seriously. That’s it. I guess we might adjust our makeup a bit based on what the ranges are selling but I feel bad for anyone that sees that, say, blue eyeshadow is in and then goes out and buys it without a second thought. It’s money down the drain because trends, by nature, don’t last!

    I actually think orange lipstick is really neat to wear with no other makeup to the beach when I’m really tan. I tone it down a little and make it a more subtle orange, and I like to pair it with my huge Dior sunglasses :D

    O_O dreadful. Nothing more to say.
    I always HATED orange/coral lips. But the colour in this pic goes beyond the hate!

    I love how it looks on the model, but in reality it’s gonna look like crap on most of us… what I learned this summer, experiencing with more orange lipsticks, it’s that if it doesn’t have any pink undertones, it’s just as bad and cringe-worthy as a concealer-ish nude!!!
