Yes I know I have a slight MAC addiction at the moment – I just can’t get enough of their new collections! One of my favourite products ever though has to be MAC lipsticks. They sell pretty much every colour you could ever want or need. But, I have to say I’ve never been a fan of orange, on the lips or anywhere else, I was actually pretty scared of it. It always came across as being hard to wear colour – you’d need the right shade for your completion otherwise it could look horrendous – does anyone relate to that or is it just my thinking? But since trying Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Neon Red Lipstick and MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Atomic, which are both orange toned reds, I’ve been wanting to take the plunge and go for a full on orange lip. MAC’s Morange is perfect for this, it’s an intense, bright orange with a gorgeous creamy opaque finish. Usually I’m not keen on my pale skin but I think this colour looks really striking against fair skin like mine!
I think this is such a gorgeous colour for summer, next up on my list is some orange lip glosses – let me know if you can recommend any! Also, I’m having real problems with my new lighting, problems in the sense that I first forgot to buy a stand, and now I have one the light doesn’t fit it! DOH! Anyway, as soon as it’s all up and running I’ll definitely be using this lipstick in some summer looks, keep your eyes peeled for these soon! xxx
As you may know, the other day I took advantage of Boots’ 3 for 2 offer and treated myself to a couple of Maybelline Kohl Liners and this Color Sensational lipstick in Neon Red.
This colour instantly jumped out at me as it was so vibrant and bright. I have a few red lipsticks but they are either more of a ‘true’ letter box red, or deeper burgundy reds. This is more of an orangy tomato red, with a fantastic intensity and shine.
I couldn’t find too much information online about these lipsticks, Maybelline describes them like this: ‘Exclusive vivid colours are brighter – Honey nectar formula nourishes lips’ And that’s about it! The Vivid range of Color Sensational Lipsticks includes loads of gorgeous bright colours, I’d really like to try Brazen Berry too, which is a bright purple 🙂
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this lipstick as I don’t like to get my hopes up, especially with a brand I have been disappointed with before. Surprisingly though I was very impressed! This lipstick was a dream to apply, it has a very smooth and creamy texture, like nothing I’ve tried before in fact. The texture was verging on a gloss, but without the stickiness. The colour applied true to how it appears in the bullet, and had fantastic pigmentation and staying power.
I usually shy away from orange hues, but I love this lipstick! It’s just the right shade of red-orange for me 😉
Have you tried Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks?
