On King’s Day I said that I should have bought an orange lipstick (orange is the national color of The Netherlands, so on every national holiday you’re expected to wear orange). At the time I was only joking, simply because I didn’t have anything to wear on King’s Night (and even though it is the national color, many Dutchies still don’t even have an orange t-shirt). But later on I thought maybe I should really buy an orange lipstick? I can rock orange lips!

Mac Morange

I purchased Morange by MAC, and I can’t get over how gorgeous this shade is!

I opted for a bright orange shade since bright colored lipsticks always look great on people with a pale skin, and I’m practically a ghost so it simply couldn’t go wrong.

Morange is an amplified creme lipstick. These are creamy, glossy and pigmented. Compared to matte MAC lipsticks that can last up to 6 hours, these aren’t that long wearing. But the wear-time is a good 2 hours (if you don’t eat or drink in the meantime).

Morange also makes my teeth look whiter! That’s the first thing I immediately noticed when I tried it on in the store.

Some say that amplified creme lipsticks tend to feather, but mine stayed on and didn’t bleed even without a lip liner. I must say that I’m very careful not to smudge my lipstick. I even have a straw in my carry on water bottle.

Not only did my MAC collection grow thanks to this purchase, but I also got a few compliments while wearing this lipstick.

So, are you a fan of orange lipsticks?
