Lips

When I Wandered into the MAC Concession

All MAC stores and MAC concession stands are always busy and I’m quite impatient.  I’ve only ever had one MAC consultation which was pre-booked. I decided to swatch a bunch of (orange) lipsticks myself and then think about ordering online, unless, Illamasqua has more suitable ones (I’ve not yet shopped there but I really want to!)

 

I was on my continuing mission to find the perfect orange.  It must be orange, not orangey-red.

 

Unfortunately, I got a little distracted with the following nudes and pinks:

  • Spirit (satin)
  • Crème in your coffee (cremesheen) what a delicious name!
  • Patisserie (lustre)
  • Jubilee (lustre)
  • Midimauve (lustre) I love the name and purples tend to work well on my dark lips.  They can come up pink which is great!

How am I supposed to choose?

Then I found:

Bronze shimmer (frost) which was darker in real life. I just have a thing for sparkle!

Finally focusing on the oranges:

  •  So Chaude (matte) although this was a bit red.
  • Lady danger (matte) also a bit red but what a great name!
  • Korean Candy sheen supreme
  • Morange (amplified)
  • What a blast lip pencil

Korean Candy over Morange looked great.  They are both on my shortlist.

 

Finally I had to add Asian Flower sheen supreme

It’s irresistibly pretty!

 

Oops.  Then I spotted Saigon Summer on the website! I wonder if it might look too coral on me.

I must stay focused!

  1. You’d love Ablaze… That is a fabulous orange colour. I did a post on it a while back but I don’t think they sell it in the permanent range which makes me sad. It’s gorgeous! Xx
