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!
