A newly released MAC collection will have any make-up lover’s heart racing but a collection which includes seven, yes seven, brand new shades of lipstick will just about give us a cardiac arrest. The much anticipated All About Orange range has finally launched and I’ve bagged myself a few beauties. Inspired by the colour which is sweeping Korea, Asia and soon to be the rest of the world, this collection includes a gorgeous mix of powder blushes, nail polishes, lipsticks, glosses, an eye-shadow quad and as the name suggests, is all about the colour orange!
Being the lipstick lover that I am I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new shades so picked up several of them. I also grabbed a blush too but I’m going to review everything in individual posts so it doesn’t get too long. First to catch my eye was Sweet & Sour, a creme sheen formula lipstick with a simply divine unique colour. As you can see this isn’t a bright, ‘in your face’ orange so is definitely one to try if you’re a bit colour shy. The shade is described as a ‘soft peach cream’ which fits the bill perfectly. It does have orange undertones but it definitely airs more on the side of peachy/light coral.
As the formula is a cremesheen, the lipstick isn’t too pigmented. Therefore, you can give lips a quick slick for a more sheer effect or build up the color with lots of layers for something a little more bold. I went for it and applied a generous amount. It lasts around two to three hours as it’s quite a glossy finish so top ups will be required throughout the day. My lips looked fresh and my whole face was brightened by the colour - as was my mood! Orange just reminds me of my bright sunny summer days (nothing like the weather today!)
I am in love with this lippy as I don’t have anything else like it in my lipstick collection. I’m more of a pinks, purples and reds kind of girl so having some orange on my lips is a nice change. I can’t wait to try out the rest of the collection so watch out for the rest of my reviews which will be coming soon. Unfortunately, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Sweet & Sour is already sold out on MAC’s website. That’s just made you want it that little bit more hasn’t it? Don’t fret - you may be able to pick it up in the shops but I would be quick as this is a limited edition collection and they don’t half sell out fast. Eek! Maybe I should go and buy some more?
