When I Wandered into the MAC Concession

Scroll down to content

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
