If I had to choose just one makeup brand to spend the rest of my life with it would probably be MAC. Sometimes they drive me crazy with all their limited edition collections and such but I just love their lipsticks! MAC is known for coming up with trendy colors and innovative formulas that my lips just can’t get enough of.
My latest MAC muse is the ever so popular Show Orchid lipstick. It’s a bright hot fuchsia-pink with a subtle hint of shimmer and a creamy amplified finish. Being the lipstick junkie I am, I have a handful of similar colors in my stash but slight shimmer really sets Show Orchid apart from the rest. It gives the color a beautiful iridescent shift when the light hits it. I love it!
Sometimes MAC’s pink lipsticks can be a little fussy but Show Orchid is surprisingly easy to wear. It’s vibrant but not too bright and the formula is truly a treat. Show Orchid glides across the lips with a lightweight creamy texture and intense pigmentation. It applies smoothly and evenly without emphasizing flakes or settling into lip lines much.
Show Orchid wears quite comfortably for around 4-6 hours before fading into a nice hot pink stain that lingers on for a few hours. I may be a little biased since I LOVE pink lipsticks but I really think Show Orchid is a MAC must have! Sure, MAC pushes out a lot of bright pink lipsticks (especially limited edition) but Show Orchid has easily become a favorite of mine. It’s so cute!
