This is a beautiful warm orange. That's the only way to describe. I'm usually not into bright colors, but trying to step out of the box. It's frosty, so if you don't like that, don't pick this one up. Also settles into lines, so make sure lips are very moisturized or add gloss. I always put no to buy again because I have so many lippies, I'll never run out.

Orange-Gina 24 is a beautiful true orange with gold shimmer, unusual to find these days. Very flattering to warm skintones in the summer and autumn months. Especially flattering to Latin beauties.

i love this lipstick! i've been on the hunt for the perfect orange drugstore lipstick, so i've had my eye on this one for ages. it did not disappoint! this is a TRUE orange, and i love it! i am pretty pale, yet i still have warm undertones, so lots of brighter colors look, well, clownish on me. however this lipstick has gorgeous golden shimmer and warm undertones to it, making it perfect for me. i'll definitely use this for a lip-focused look, as it demands the attention haha. i love the shape of the lipstick, it has edges instead of just being rounded. it doesn't affect application or anything, it just gives it some character, imo. one thing i didn't love was the smell. it's really really synthetic, and kind of perfume-y. however, it goes away after application, so as long as you aren't sitting around sniffing the tube, you should be fine! also the packaging is pretty clunky and not very appealing, however it is sturdy so i'm okay with it. overall i give this a 4.5.

Oh wow this is so beautiful. Yes, it is bold but in a totally glam way. I wore it with a more natural nude looking face and I got more compliments then you could imagine. Love it!

I am absolutely loving this colour. I picked it up on a whim, and was not prepared for how beautiful it is. It's a very rich orange colour with a golden shimmer to it. If orange is ever "classy" and not "clowny," I think this is it. It's a fairly bold colour, so be prepared to put your face through the typical preparations required to take on an orange lip. I'm fairly pale (Around NC15), and if I was going to be brutally honest, this colour might be a little too much with my complexion, but I love it so much that I determinedly keep on wearing it, clownface-be-damned.
This lipstick has a bit of a scent to it, kind of an orange creamsicle smell. It's light, but also feels very fake, and I'd really rather it wasn't present. The formula is not quite as smooth as I'd like it -- it feels a bit drying, and drags on my lips a bit during application, and I typically exfoliate and moisturize before applying lipstick. On the positive side, it has a good wear time. The colour stays strong, although it's not particularly food resistant (Testing has shown that it will wear off quickly if one consumes a monstrous roast turkey sandwich).
Like all of Milani's lipsticks, this lipstick is an odd shape -- instead of being round, the stick is a multi-faceted, hexagonal shape, with a much narrower angled side for application than usual. Quirky, but doesn't affect application any. The rectangular packaging is more typical, but nice: a mature-looking brushed gold. The packaging has also survived the "Purse Test" (In which I throw the lipstick in my massive, cluttered purse, and the cap doesn't pop off).
Summary: Although not the best formula out there, this unique shade is fabulous. It's normally priced at $5.00 (CAD$), and I got it on sale for $2.50. Well worth the cost, I'll be picking this shade up again when I run out.

I'm not someone who even likes orange on me, but after seeing Temptalia's review of this lipstick, I decided to give it a try. It is very pigmented and is longwearing. I personally like it with a coral lipgloss on top. I'm not too crazy about the shimmer/frost factor, but this is still a great lipstick if you are looking to buy an orange lipstick for a reasonable price.

I have finally found the perfect orange lipstick!
Yesterday, I went to Walmart looking for a perfect shade of orange lipstick (for those warmer months). I was successful in my search. This shade looked glorious on my caramel skin tone.
This is my first orange lipstick (I usually stick to bronze, brown, dark pink tones) and I simply adore it. I know this product will become a staple!
A few cons: The lipstick has a tendency to clump so, make sure you lips are well moisturized. Also, the lipstick smells like perfume. I saw another reviewer say that it smells like Amarige perfume. But, the scent tends to go away after about 30 minutes.
Overall, I do like this lipstick!

This is such a gorgeous, warm orange colour. Unlike Milani's Mandarin (which I also ADORE), this is less bright and more warm, and also very shimmery. I'd say it's a very close match to Shiseido's Perfect Rouge in Day Lily. It is definitely a bold colour, as most orange lipsticks are, but it's still pretty safe compared to the other oranges out there. It is a beautiful, light orange and I would definitely buy this again!

I went to CVS to check out the makeup and found I wanted a coral colored lipstick. I was inspired by the Mary Kay website where they had a beautiful cafe-au-lait skinned model with full coral colored lips. Anyway, I was originally to post about Mango Mambo, but since I don't have enough reviews to create my own item, I must go on here and review another color I tried. This is a light colored coral that has a lot of shimmer to it. It's a beautiful color that actually a little more subtle than it looks in the tube. However, I found that it was quite clumpy when I applied it. And then when I wiped it off with my finger from my lips, I noticed that it would kind of ball up on my fingertips. Kind of ick. Must have something to do with shimmer...who knows. It was a little too light for my complexion (warm-toned medium tan Asian who also looks good in berries and wines) and I wasn't interested in a shimmer (think 80s makeup look with the bright lipstick). I'm sure for lighter skin colors this would look great. By the way, Milani's lipstick smell like Amarige perfume.

This color, not for the timid. A good going-out-at-night shade or on a hot summer day. Best when worn with the rest of your makeup muted. The tube itself is a bit boxy and big, but that's a small price to pay for small price you'll pay since Milani is so blessedly cheap.

Gorgeous! This lippie looks intimidating in the tube -- bright copper-penny orange shimmer -- but goes on much subtler. This is the color I wanted Stila Fiona to be -- and its cheap to boot. Wish I'd found it first, lol, but its mine now!
Lovely Egyptian-gold case. Very glam.

As a dark-skinned African-American woman, I tend to shy away from colors like oranges because they have often been too garish. But this is a nice shimmery orange that does not make me look like a clown. This is my first experience with the Milani line and I am very impressed -- a nifty line for women of color with a low price point.
