While Vamp-colored lipsticks are traditionally the shade we see this time of year, one of the splendors of having skin richly steeped in melanin is the ability to pull off any lip shade any time of year, without exception.

The ladies featured below wear orange and red so well that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to display how beautifully the colors compliments the various shades of brown skin. Melanin on fleek, indeed!
