Good morning!! Oh man it's sunny today and I don't want to give a weather report every post, but I can't help it. We're still in the 'Nature is Confused' mode where one day it's cloudy and rainy, the next it's brilliant. I'm so affected by it, that when the sun comes out, it's like ZING! and I come alive. I thought this next lipstick would be a good color to review as summer's right around the corner.
Saw a gorgeous UK girl wearing this and had to ask, "What color is that?" She told me, I bought it, and here it is: MAC Morange. I am thinking that's an acronym for 'more orange'- and that, it is. Like Dept. of Trans. vest orange. I originally picked this up as a gift for a friend, thinking it would be a gorgeous persimmon red, but oh no. It's straight up orange.
Red background for a good red hue comparison to the lippie. It's an Amplified Creme which is my favorite finish by MAC. This performs the same, creamy, opaque, and a slight sheen. I'm going to pair Morgana's Violet Banana with this and another day, hot pink gloss- just to see the color morph with it.
Excuse the yellow tone, but here's the color on me.
It's a doozy! I think this would be pretty on super pale, dark haired women or toned down to a matte on a blonde. Dark skin could berry this up and work with it and I don't know if it's work safe- unless again, you're UDOT and want to match your traffic flag.
Would I order this again? Um, probably not. The gift situation was a fail, so I have it and will work with it. I would've preferred a more red color and while I'm ranting, I hate MAC's online swatches BTW, so inaccurate as a whole, and I think I could've been spared a bit of a wonky shade choice. The girl I based my pick from has magic skin as this looked completely different. Ces la vie, right? Also, I already have my holy grail orange, Morgana's 24k Pumpkin, which you can read about HERE. Would you buy this- did you?? I'd love to know! So this isn't in my personal collection, it's in my kit as a mixer or fun color, but I think I would've gotten 'O' instead for fun.
