MAC All About Orange Collection - MAC Lipstick Swatches
|MAC All About Orange - L Razzledazzler, Sweet & Sour, Tangerine Dream R|
MAC recently released a new collection for summer, “All About Orange” - this MAC collection contains seven lipsticks, three lipglasses, three blushes, three nail polishes and one eyeshadow quad. I was so excited for this collection since I wear a variety of orange and coral hues in my daily makeup routine, be it a pretty peachy pink blush, a pop of bright eye shadow or a striking orange creme lipstick. Orange complements my yellow skin tone beautifully, and looks great with or without a tan, (even on many other complexions). This All About Orange lipstick collection does contain some true orange colors as well some pinker leaning colors, in a variety of finishes. The lipsticks retail at $15 a piece and you can find them in store at Macy’s or stand alone counters; this collection is also available on Mac’s website as well as Nordstroms. The three MAC lipsticks I picked up were: Razzledazzler (Lustre finish), Sweet & Sour (Cremesheen finish) and Tangerine Dream (Lustre finish).
I will include both face and lip swatches (paired with a smokey grey look inspired by the MAC All About Orange quad) and provide small reviews on each of these lipsticks. I would recommend checking out this collection and trying on some pretty oranges, as they are on trend and can look chic and flattering on everyone!

|The classic MAC packaging; I was a little disappointing they didn’t debut a special packaging for this collection (just think of all the possibilities)|

1. MAC Razzledazzler - A Lustre creme finish, but quite pigmented, feels very comfortable and moisturizing on lips. Coral is a soft orange coral leaning pink. Razzledazzler is a very wearable color and it is the one that I reach for most, flatters my light/medium skin tone beautifully!
2. MAC Sweet & Sour - A Cremesheen finish, so it is a more pigmented and thicker formula than the Lustre finish. The color is similar to Razzledazzler but much lighter, and white based. Could be worn as a pretty nude with orangey pink notes. I wear it with a darker lip liner as it is slightly too light for my skin tone, but this color looked beautiful on my sister who has a lighter skin tone (so she kept this one!).
Miranda’s Notes: If you still haven’t found that perfect lipstick for the smokey eye look, MAC Sweet and Sour should be the winning pick. I absolutely love this shade and feel very glam when wearing it.
3. MAC Tangerine Dream - A Lustre finish, less pigmented than Razzledazzler but still very moisturizing and lightweight formula. The color is definitely unique, as it is a yellow based orange; the color can be layered an intensified. I was most excited for this color as it is very unique and it does look great on a medium yellow based skin tone, but I find it difficult to wear due to its yellow tint.
