For the second year in a row Chinese actress Fan BingBing rocked a bold, matte, nearly neon,orange lip at Cannes Film Festival.

Orange is her favourite colour and this year, with the help of L’Oréal’s Official Cannes Makeup Artists Karim Rahman and Billy B, Fan chose L’Oréal’s Color Riche Orange (303) to play off of her embroidered Christopher Bu strapless gown.

Fan is not alone in her penchant for orange.

MAC’s Morange is currently the number 1 bestselling lipstick in China (thanks to Fan Bingbing), the orange lip featured in JCrew’s catalogue was such a hit they developed a signature hue with Poppy King last year, and even Bobbi Brow, the queen of the nude lip, has launched a collection called Neons and Nudes of which Atomic Orange is a bestseller.

The tangerine lip is definitely shaping up to be a younger, more edgy take on the red lip and was prevalent on the spring runways with designers Jason Wu, Erin Fetherston, Thakoon and Nanette Lapore all showing bold neon shades.
