I recently did a back to MAC at the Pro store and I picked up Show Orchid lipstick.
I'm not sure what I was thinking as I don't normally go for pinks let alone near neon pinks. However, there was something about this lipstick that I just couldn't resist. I swatched lots of others but I decided this was the one I should go for.
Show Orchid is such a statement colour! It's so strong and it covers very well. The finish is amplified so it means lots of pigmentation. It's a complex colour with hints of pink, magenta, blue and purple. See the swatch blow.
It wears really nicely and it lasts a long time on my lips. I has that lovely MAC lipstick scent to it.
You can make it look a bit toned down by just dotting it or by smudging it with your fingers.
I love using it full on with relaxed eye looks or just on its own with only mascara on my eyes.
I know I'm a peachy/ orange lipstick kind of girl but Show Orchid is now up there with my top 10 lipsticks! That's how much I like it.
