Okay, I was on youtube looking at under eye corrector reviews. Some lady rec'd using a orange lipstick to use as a corrector. So, I went out and purchased Siren and it turned out to be a fail lol. But, using Siren as it's primary purpose, a lipstick and it is a perfect shade for me. This shade is bright orange on me and works well with my skin tone (medium olive ~ NC42 MAC ~ 6.0 UD). I prefer bright pinks and oranges instead of reds for a bold lip because most reds look horrible on me because they are either too brown, plum or blue based and clash w/ my tones. Siren looks hot with bronzed skin, simple liquid black liner and a peach hued blush. Perfect for summer. The formula is creamy and the staying power is decent (few hours).
I love this! The color scared me at first but I think this bright orange is perfect for summer. I like the creamy texture and longevity. if you want to get it look at your local big lots because I found it there for two dollars:)
Picked this out after spending half an hour tearing my bedroom apart looking for my MAC Vegas Volt. (It'll turn up eventually ... I just know it will!) I can't do "true reds" without looking overdone, and many corals end up looking ruddy, so I'm picky as hell when it comes to anything in the bold and bright category. Since I live (way too conveniently) close to an Ulta, I just googled to see if a dupe exists and this is what came up. Like Vegas Volt, Siren probably looks a little bit different on everyone. I have fair skin but my lips are very pigmented, so I almost always need more than one or two swipes ... but the saturation is fantastic. It looks almost identical to Vegas Volt on me. I guess if you stare at it long enough (and I mean a long time) it's maybe a degree pinker, but it's just as vivid and would probably photograph the same.
After seeing JLo's new video, 'Goin In' I saw her wearing a nice coral lip I just had to find something similar. To me coral can sometimes look more pink and sometimes more orangey, so I was trying to find something more on the orangey side. As I think Revlon has the best lipstick shades, I hit the drugstore and found Siren. It's creamy, goes on nice and smooth, and definitely gives a nice pop of colour! To recreate the look I applied a clear gloss first and then applied the lipstick to give it a more muted tone. But if I'm going out, I would definitely skip the gloss and use the bold orange colour and pair it with a nice, subtle bronzed eye (as JLo has in the video). I would definitely repurchase this!
I have really mixed feeling about this lipstick. I like bright, vibrant, kind of out-there lip colors, which is why I bought this orange lipstick. I love it for the color- which looks like a bright orange on me, though I've heard others say it looks for them more like a muted red- but that's about it. It's a creme finish, which I've never actually dealt with before. I don't like the finish at all- it's not bad, but if I wanted to wear something that made my lips look like I'd just applied a whole tube of lip balm... I'd just apply a whole tube of lip balm. I have to exfoliate my lips directly before I put this on, because it settles into cracks like crazy. Granted, I already exfoliate with a sugar/olive oil scrub every three or four days, which normally works just fine, even for some of my extremely matte lipsticks and my lip stains. This, however, requires completely smooth lips. On top of that, I have to apply once, blot, apply some sort balm/gloss (I just use a super-thin layer of the thickest clear gloss I have) and then apply it super thickly again just to get opaque coverage, but this is a very thinly pigmented lip color (not sheer, exactly- it just applies thinly).
I love the color, though, which is why I go through the work of putting it on in a way that ensures it doesn't look horrible and streaky. It definitely isn't a great lipstick by any measure, but it's exactly the color I was looking for and until I can find another perfect pumpkin-y red orange, I'll just have to stick with this.
I was a little hesitant about the orange lip trend because I just imagined how horrible it would look if it was done wrong (which is easy to do). but when it is done right, it is so gorgeous and surprisingly natural.
I have pale, slightly golden Asian skin and so I thought it would clash terribly, and it did when I put it on straight from the tube without doing anything else to it. but when I blotted it...wow. just wow. so pretty.
so if this color is too harsh for you, just try blotting it a little. the bright fluorescent-ness of it will wear away leaving a light, natural color that looks simply divine
Snagged this for $5, I feel lucky that orange lips work on me! It looks kind of like muted red which is what I like. You would think since my skin has warm (which is red/pink so we're clear) undertones it would look weird but it doesn't. The only dislike I have with it is that it's not exactly moisturizing.
What was I thinking? I really wanted to like this color since orange is the rage this season and the color should compliment my NC45 complexion. A lot dark skinned ladies on YouTube recommend this color. The problem is that my upper lip is light brown but my bottom lip is pink, which made the color looked much brighter than I wanted.
If you're a DDD and trying to find a orange or coral look I suggest MAC's Meltdown (orange/ light golden bronze) and L'Oreal's limited edition Sparkling Coral (106- golden coral). BE's Buxom lip gloss in Candi is also a beautiful coral shade. While these colors aren't as orange as Siren, a pumpkin or orange lip liner should intensify the look.
first off, i loveeee corals and oranges. so, this is beautiful and perfect in my opinion. the formulation i say is better than a lot of higher end lipsticks that i own surprisingly. this was my first revlon lipstick from this line and i was so impressed by how smooth it slid on! wow! i also got this 75% off at cvs, so it waas about 3 or 4 dollars. HOLLA. cant beat that! my mac lipstick in toxic tale is my favorite corally red orange, but for the price, i would buy 5 of these anyday!
I got this before I bought my highly coveted M'orange by MAC. I love a great orange lip, but Siren really disappoints. Even with a lip conditioner or primer but on beforehand, it applies streaky as hell and has awful color payoff. Even for a drugstore brand, this is pretty disappointing. I tried concealer and foundation on my lips before applying, used a liner and a lip brush and STILL it just looks weird. I wanted to like this, but I'll stick to MAC shades from now on.
