MAC All About Orange Collection Swatches/Review


Purchased by me.

Orange lipsticks are another (besides purple) favorite color of mine to wear, so when I heard about this collection, I prayed that I wouldn’t want them all. Well, I did, but I used a little self-control and hauled only 4 out of the 7 lipsticks and 1 out of the 3 blushes. No nail polishes, though. I have enough of those, right?! 😉

Okay, so here’s what I hauled. These are ALL Limited Edition, so if you can still find them at your local Macy’s/Nordstrom/Dillards/Belk, grab them. The last I checked, 2 – 3 days ago, 7 were left of Tangerine Dream, a yellow-orange. So, don’t think on them!

Razzledazzler (Repromote) – Lustre
Flamingo (Repromote) – Lustre
Sweet & Sour – Cremesheen
Sushi Kiss – Satin

Royal Sunset – Powder Blush in Satin



All photos below have me wearing Royal Sunset, the blush. Here’s a quick look at it!



And, a quick arm swatch of the lipsticks!


I made sure to grab Razzledazzler and Flamingo, the two repromotes, because they are gorgeous and I have been really wanting them, and I was thrilled to not have to pay over $30 for them.

Razzledazzler is a lustre finish with a peach tinge to it. It’s super pretty and subtle!



Then, there’s Flamingo, a milky coral. I had to have this. I have been looking at this one for a LONG time. I have been lusting over the Iris Apfel collection, and I kind of wish I had grabbed Scarlet Ibis when it was repromoted just a few weeks ago, but oh well. Glad I got my hands on the gorgeous, elusive Flamingo!



Sweet & Sour was one that was tricky to me. I didn’t try it on and neither did I see preview swatches for it. I took a chance on this one. It’s a light cremesheen (probably my favorite formula by MAC) peach. I am SO glad I grabbed it! SO pretty!



Last but not least was the MOST coveted of the colors from this collection, Sushi Kiss. I was really wanting this one, and glad I got my mitts on it! Beautiful pastel orange!! Yum. It is a satin finish, so you know it glided right on to my lips. Beautifully pigmented!



So, there you have it. The beauties of the All About Orange Collection. Note that there are 3 more colors. Neon Orange (a permanent shade), Tangerine Dream (a yellow-orange Lustre), and Tart & Trendy (a neutral orange cream in Lustre finish).  I didn’t pick those up because I had ordered MAC Sounds Like Noise in April, and have PLENTY of bright orange lipsticks in my collection! I really was in need of pastel oranges and sorbet coral colors!

What do you think of these? Did you haul any of these?

Purchased by me. All opinions are honest and my own.
