It seems as though MAC Cosmetics releases a new collection every couple of weeks. It is almost impossible to keep up and any MAC fanatic could easily spend a fortune on all the limited edition releases. I personally love MAC lipstick and usually just opt for their standard range of shades. However this season one collection truly spoke to me, the All About Orange Collection.
MAC All About Orange Collection was created and inspired by the über popular and very current shade, orange. The collection features shadows, lipsticks, glosses, blushes and polishes ranging from true orange, to coral orange, to pink corals. I shied away from the true oranges and picked up two varying shades with pink tones for easier wear, Sushi Kiss and Sweet & Sour. I also finally came around to picking up Coral Bliss rounding up a lovely collection orange-tinged hues. (review soon)
Sweet & Sour is a pale peachy-pink with a creme finish. For a MAC Cremesheen its very pigmented with more of a satin finish. Sweet & Sour appears much lighter on my lips than when viewed in the tube. This is definitely a favorite of the collection for me. It’s similar to one of my favorite YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, #30 Faubourg Peach, and just as pigmented. For a more natural look you might want to apply this one over a balm.
Sushi Kiss is a stand-out shade that is an incredibly pigmented medium-tone peach-coral. This one gave me a bit of a clown face, and I have featured it in all its glory. While I love the shade and that name, I personally think it’s a bit much straight from the tube. I opt to wear it either over balm to soften it or along with a gloss. Sushi kiss has a satin finish.(above) wearing Sweet & Sour (above) wearing Sushi Kiss some comparison swatches
I picked up these two items from a restock on maccosmetics.com. I am sure that by now they might be hard to find.
