When I was browsing the MAC website the other day (not something I do often, but I just felt like it that day!) I came across the new Mac Fall Colour: Wild Colour collection. I’m quite a fan of bright colours, and when I spotted the Show Orchid lipstick, I instantly knew I had to buy it! I’ve been put off buying MAC lipsticks in the past – mainly due to the £13.50 price tag – but absolutely couldn’t resist buying this one. Want to see why?
Isn’t it the most amazing pink you’ve ever seen?! It’s my perfect pink, and even had the most subtle shimmer through it too. I ordered it online (a bit of a risk, I know!) but when it arrived it was just as gorgeous as I hoped it would be.
I thought the name was so pretty, and a perfect representation of the lipstick colour. It is one of the Amplified Creme lipsticks; a finish that I always thought I would love. How does it look on the lips?
In my opinion, it looks just as good on the lips as it does in the tube! Do you also agree that it makes your teeth look a little whiter? That is weirdly something that I picked up on straight away!
Believe it or not, this is the first MAC lipstick I have ever bought! I have tried one before – my sister bought the original Viva Glam Gaga one when we were in NYC – but this the very first one I have purchased.
The application of the lipstick was wonderful – as it is slightly creamy, it glided on to the lips with no issues whatsoever. I actually found that I didn’t need a lipliner as the precise tip traced around the shape of my lips perfectly. I would probably wear one on a night out or for prolonged wear though. It is an all-round fantastic lipstick, and worth the price in my opinion. I’ve never seen another shade like it! It’s also limited edition, so if you love it – grab one now!
