I did it! I finally picked up that MAC Lipstick that I’ve been penning lustful odes to for weeks, Neon Orange. A thick opaque colour that finishes things off with a reddy orange tinge – though more to the orange side of proceedings. What d’ya think? I’ve been attempting to pull it off comboed up with a sheer base, bit of bronzer and my ‘Bans – you know how I feel about shades and bold lippies. And there are no complaints on the formula; it’s an amplified finish so lacquers on loud and proud and stays put until you remove it or go to town on something greasy (tried and tested baby).

The only glitch? It’s a MAC Pro product so is only tangible and take home-able at the MAC stores in Covent Garden and Carnaby Street and not available online but you can call up the MAC Pro line and order by telephone. As that’s a bit of a ballache I’ve got a dupe for you – The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in 105*. Slightly more orangey in tone (I like) and sheerer. And if that fails grab MAC Lipstick in  Morange - the original orange laced red. You can’t go wrong with it.

    Lovely – hardly as scary as the name “Neon orange” suggests! May I say very chic with the minimal black top too :)

    How do you like this compared with the Hourglass Riviera?

    Gorgeous shade, very chic! Don’t think it would suit my colors though, but I will be searching MACs counters for an organgey shade that suits me :o )

    I am so happy there is a MAC store in Covent Garden now, I mainly top up my MAC collection when I come down to London, and usually stop at concessions but this is ideal! Can’t wait to browse next time I’m around!

    I love how wearable this looks, after being scared of trying it out I think I might brave it. Fancy a nice splash of colour.

    This looks so gorgeous on you! I think its more subtle on you than morange but still pretty intense

    Love this! Morange is one of my all-time favorites and I have been thinking about Neon Orange for a while. There is a MAC Pro store near me in Miami Beach, so next time I’m over there I may have another look,

    It’s lovely how bright orange-based reds look deep enough a shade with your skintone. It’s the kind of shade I’d love to wear but on me (NARS Barcelona, Laura Mercier Hazelnut Beige) something like MAC Morange looks a bit more pastel than red. I’m actually wondering if I should dare to get Hourglass’ liquid lipstick in Muse (because it’s SO gorgeous) or go safe with Icon. Hmm.

    Looks great. Still a little nervous about choosing an orange based lipstick! Maybe I’ll start with the Body Shop one.

    I’ve never tried makeup products by The Body Shop before but I’m starting to hear a lot more about them and I’m definitely interested in giving them a go.

    Very pretty, this really suits you :) I didn’t realise that there were certain ranges unavailable. I was only in Mac Covent Garden on Bank Holiday Monday, I should of treated myself to something a bit special.
