7 Days of Lipstick: Show Orchid (Day 2)

We’re on Day 2 of my new week-long feature – 7 Days of Lipstick! Yesterday was the turn of a coral shade, and when I woke up this morning I really wanted to wear a super bright shade. And what better lipstick to pick than MAC’s Show Orchid!

This is without a doubt one of my favourite lipsticks of all time – I just rarely get to wear it as it’s so bright! But today I threw caution to the wind and embraced the full-on pink shade.

I do apologise for my face in this photo – I look a little odd!

I had previously thought that I would feel super self-conscious wearing this lipstick in the day time, but after my initial apprehension I had a walk down to the supermarket wearing a fresh new coat. I found that I did get a few looks but they looked like they were admiring the shade rather than thinking I looked odd!

The only thing about wearing a bright shade in the day time is having to re-apply after pretty much everything you eat or drink – it’s very obvious when it wears off slightly. I didn’t mind too much though; I enjoyed seeing the fresh new burst of colour when I re-applied!

I can safely say that this remains one of my favourite lipstick shades in the world – I actually just want to wear it more often! It’s such a shame that it was a limited edition, it’s so beautiful.

Can you guess what tomorrow’s lipstick will be? Feel free to leave your guesses in the comments!

Stay Creative,

    CHYAZ! I don’t know if they carry N.Y.C. (New York Color) makeup in your drugstores, but if they do could you please pick up the City Duet 2 in 1 lipstick in “The Hot Pinks” ? I love the way show orchid looks, but unfortunately I dont have it and cant see for myself, but I wanted to know if that N.Y.C. lipstick could be a copycat color. It seems to have the same bright pink shade with blue/purple undertones/shimmers. Thanks so much for sharing all of your beauty tips with us love you!
