I have an absolute unwavering love for this MAC’s Morange lipstick!! Morange is a beautiful neon orange lipstick. Somehow it is very wearable on me though. At first sight I thought there is no way I can pull off this lipstick! Somehow it just works for me. Morange is a matte lipstick with a really good formula. Morange is a one of MAC’s amplified formula lipsticks . Wear time is really good and after the lipstick has faded if I do not reapply I still have a really nice stained effect on my lips. I can make it to about 1 pm before I have to reapply and that’s with drinking my coffee and snacking! That is great in my book. You can pick up Morange on the MAC website or at any MAC counter.

If you are like me and adore M.A.C’s back to MAC program AND have way too many lipsticks then you will need to get yourself a lipstick palette. The palette I am going to show you today is my first lipstick palette. It has served me well. It holds 12 lipsticks. I need to either make another palette or change to a bigger palette. I am considering trying out the Japonesque 35 well pro lipstick palette for $32.00.I have not purchased it yet because of the cost but I really like the look of it and I need the space.

O.K. onto my current lipstick palette. It is actually a bead organizer and was purchased on Amazon.com for only $4.39.You can get it here

This is my palette as it looks now.

Basically what you want to do is grab one of the empty round jars and remove the lid.Grab your lipstick and roll it all the way up…Find some kind of long skinny utensil to get all the lipstick from the tube and place all of this on a paper towel for easy clean up. Here is my set up. The lipstick I depotted here was Makeup Forever’s 506. #506 is a Matte intense red. The shade has been discontinued unfortunately.

I think this is pretty self explanatory but just in case somebody does not know I will explain. Roll up the lipstick and use your toolto cut off the top and place it in your bead container. Then use the tool to scoop out the inside of the tube. There is a LOT hidden inside the tube. Place that inside your bead container as well. Put the clear lid on and remove the sticker from your lipstick and place that on the bottom of your bead container. You now have one labeled depotted lipstick. YAY! Some people like to place the lipstick in a large spoon and melt it or place it in a microwave safe container and melt it that way. I do not. I find that it changes the consistency of my lipstick whenI do that as well as you run the risk of melting the bead container like the one in my picture below.Here are pictures of my depotting of the Makeup Forever 506 and my completed lipstick palette. Enjoy…

I hate to say I am a lipstick snob….but I sort of am. Now I am not proud of this. I know that I don’t need to spend $15+ on a lipstick for it to be a good lipstick. I guess there is just something magical about opening my purse and pulling out a beautiful tube of MAC lipstick and perfectly applying it at my desk that I just love. I’m hooked on MAC lipsticks. However, this review has nothing to do with that. A couple of months ago I spotted this gorgeous blue based fuchsia pink lipstick and thought wow that’s an amazing color. Could it really be as good as my more expensive lippies? Well I have put it off for a couple of months but this morning the color was calling to me as I opened my lipstick and gloss drawer. So let’s get to the review shall we.

I applied this lipstick to bare lips at 9 am this morning. I am not one to use lip liner except on rare occasions. When I do I always reach for chanel  lip liner. They make the best in my opinion. Anyway it applied smoothly. It did not tug at my lips at all. It goes on with a glossy finish and has small silver glitter that is not too overpowering luckily. The color is as it looks in the tube amazing! It is slightly deeper then I usually wear but still a very nice wearable shade for me. I LOVE bright look at me lips.

Around noon I looked in the mirror and it had worn to a faint stain and needed reapplying. It had only very slightly bled into my fine lines. Nothing to drastic or anything. I re-applied and that lasted with the same end results for about another 4 hours before I again had to reapply it. If you look at the color of this lipstick in the pictures at the bottom of this post and then head over to my MAC Embrace Me Lipstick Review you will see that the colors look very similar. Eucalyptus being slightly deeper with a creamier texture and glossy while Embrace Me is more matte  but still very close. So if you missed out on MAC’S limited edition Embrace Me you may want to pick this up instead. For the price there is no reason not to.

My overall opinion of this lipstick is that it is a really fun color and has a nice finish. I noticed no smell at all. The wear time is a little short compared to my higher end lipsticks but for the savings I suppose that applying a couple extra times a day is tolerable. I really love how the lipstick has a nice sharp point to it. I love that and always have preferred a sharp point to my lipsticks. If you are not bothered by reapplying every 4 hours or so then I would recommend giving this a try. The formula is really quit good. For the price and feel of this lipstick it is definitely a good deal. You can pick this up from NYX for only $4!!! Get it here.
Onto the pics now.
