When I was in London, I finally got to Back 2 MAC some of my decluttered products. We do get MAC here, but Holland is not connected to the Back 2 MAC programme. But the UK is! So I hung on to my products for nearly a year and decided to get a free lipstick. Since I had a year to decide what I wanted to get, I was quick to decide. I decided to get an Amplified lipstick in the shade Morange.
MAC lipsticks have some of the most iconic packaging in the beauty industry. The bullet (or tampon ) shaped lipstick is black and comes in an individual box when you buy it. The only downside to this packaging is when you have a few of these: it becomes incredibly difficult to tell them apart. That is why I organize mine by color family in my collection and store them upside down so I can see the shade names on the bottom of the lipstick.
As you can see in the swatch, the lipstick has a bit of a sheen to it, but the color payoff is super intense. The texture is creamy and this glides on so easily. However, as with many lipsticks that you use for the first time, there is a bit of toughness to the lipstick at first as if there is a layer that needs to wear off first. That is why the swatch is so wonky. However, once that wears off, this lipstick glides on very easily.
This shade is pretty unique. Not everyone can pull off a bright orange shade like this but it does make a statement when worn with proper outfit. Speaking of skin tone, it is a statement shade and personally I feel that all skin tone ladies can flaunt this if you want to wear an orange lipstick.
1. Perfect orange for those who like bold bright orange shade lipstick. 2. Colours of lipsticks may give a little different look on different skin tones, so unless you are really ready to experiment, always swatch the tester of a lipstick on your skin before purchasing it.
Tangerine Dream is one of my favorite new lipsticks. I think it works on me because I have very pigmented lips (very rosy red, almost plum) so the yellow works out and makes it more pure orange. It can, however, highlight the yellow in your teeth. :-/
I braved the tropical storm in Tampa yesterday to get first dibs on a couple of these lipsticks. Sushi Kiss was sold out at Nordstrom and the Mac store!! Ended up buying Tart and Trendy. Mac never has enough stock of their bright pretty lipsticks,they sell out too fast!
I realized this years ago when I tried a classic orange lipstick. I took some photos and majorly freaked. Why were my teeth so yellow in every image I thought back to my studio art classes in college and realized it made sense. The yellow undertones of the orange reflected off of my teeth, causing my smile to have a yellow tinge.
It feels like new beauty products are released every day, especially when you think about the ever-expanding selection of celebrity makeup lines. As fun as it is to test out lipsticks, a lot of us end up sticking with our tried and true favorites. MAC has been coming through with high-quality makeup for decades. The brand has built up such a loyal following, that there's one lipstick shade that sold 2.4 million times last year alone, according to Allure.
The MAC Chili lipstick is a warm brick red shade that will instantly elevate any look. This lipstick has a soft, creamy formula that feels comfortable on your lips. It has a shine-free, matte finish that doesn't dry out your lips. And, this shade seems to be universally flattering, looking beautiful on many different skin tones.
\"I have a medium tan skin color. I'm half black, half Asian. Chili looks great against my skin. The lipstick stays on even through eating and drinking. It reapplies well if I need to add another layer later. It's a good product overall,\" a MAC customer said.
Someone else shared, \"Chili was recommended to me by the store worker in mac Glasgow, as I have fiery copper hair and it goes perfect with my hair and skin tone not too light not too dark , it also is very moisturising as I find matte lipsticks to be dry on my lips this one isn't,also lasts a good 10 hours.\"
A fan of the shade said, \"I'm late to the red lipstick game in my 20's-again, but better late than never! Chili is my favorite lip color!! Probably like a lot of people out there, I was too apprehensive about wearing red lipstick thinking it wouldn't look good on my skintone... It is actually not super bright, but just red/brown/orange enough. It's very flattering with my skin tone and I can't believe it took me this long to try it. Highly recommend it to anybody who is thinking this won't look good on them. It will!! I put it on and it makes me feel instantly more put together. Love this!!\"
Whether you're a complete makeup newbie buying their first lipstick or looking to expand your collection with a few more key shades, the most popular MAC lipsticks are a great place to start. The iconic brand's extensive color range can be overwhelming, so it's nice to have a smaller starting point of the best-loved shades to inspire your next purchase (or two).
Loved by the Kardashian-Jenners, the most popular MAC lipstick shade is of course their iconic pinky-peach nude Velvet Teddy. Every lipstick fan will have sworn this deep but ever-so-slightly rosy beige as their staple at some point in time. And it comes with a flattering no-shine matte finish.
This MAC lipstick shade is great for a staple everyday color as the deep neutral goes well with all skin tones and most makeup looks. We would suggest pairing with our favorite Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation for a signature glowy look. 59ce067264
