MAC | Show Orchid

FINALLY! Just ... finally! Today I'm going to be talking about the lipstick that I've lusted after for the longest time. Many a time I would convince myself I didn't need it and then go buck to lusting after it. My dear friends, it is MAC Cosmetics lipstick in Show Orchid and she is perfection. It's a MAC Pro product which made it rather difficult for me to find, but I've finally got my hands on it! It's this gorgeous fuchsia-berry-hot pink (it's got a lot going on) shade. It's one of those shades that can do no wrong in any season. It's bright enough for the spring/summer but berry enough to pull off in the fall/winter months, as well! The finish is Amplified Creme which means it's practically the smoothest and most pigmented type of formula you'll ever come across from MAC. It glides onto the lips like a dream (and I say this is a girl with dry lips!). I also love that it stays on my lips even after I've drunken a grande Starbucks coffee. I'm guilty of being that girl who just knows which cup is hers because most of her lipstick has transferred onto the cover. But this one doesn't budge and I love it! MAC lipsticks all retail for $15, which may seem a bit pricey but this color is so worth it!
