More Orange?

Today I have a review of a MAC lipstick which my sister gave me as she works in the Beauty/Hair Industry. It is in the shade Morange which has an Amplified Cream finish.

The packaging is the classic MAC bullet shaped black tube which is lightweight whilst still very sleek. The only downfall of the packaging is that the top of the lipstick is rounded, so you can't store them upside down with the name showing. 

The colour itself is a super bold red-orange shade. It is definitely a more wearable shade of orange because of the good amount of red tones in it. As the colour of the year for 2012 was Tangerine Tango, orange definitely became a popular shade and I think it will be still quite trendy for this year. Although Summer is almost over I thought I would sneak this post in. I've been brave enough to wear it a couple of times and I love the bold lip it gives! You can wear it to it's full potential with opaque colour payoff or it can be tapped onto the lips and blended out for a more subtle coral lip.

The Amplified Cream formula is super creamy and packs a real punch in terms of colour payoff! It applies rather smoothly to the lips straight from the bullet but a lip brush will provide extra precision. It has a semi-matte finish to it and no shimmer at all. The colour lasts  a really long time on the lips and leaves a slight stain after wear. The colour doesn't bleed outside of the lips, even without a lip liner! The one thing I don't love about the formula is that it makes dry lips very noticable so make sure they are exfoliated and moisturised properly beforehand! Also the lipstick doesn't dry out the lips nor does it moisturise them.

Overall I really like Morange for the bold pop of colour it provides! For a more wearable shade I really enjoy wearing it sheered out topped with a lip balm or gloss. 


  1. I love Morange too - it's such a great orange! Another of my favourites is Vegas Volt.
