TGIT!! The weekend starts today in sunny Lagos as there is a bank holiday today and tomorrow. There will be lots of wild partying and binge drinking out in the streets tonight. If you don’t live here, don’t be jel, your weekend is only a day away 🙂
I recently purchased the infamous Morange lipstick by MAC and I love it. My first foray into the world of orange lips was MAC’s Vegas Volt which I quite like but there was just something missing. I was looking for an orange lipstick that packs a punch and then I found Morange. If you don’t like to be the centre of attention, then I advice you stay away from this bad boy.
Morange is a bright, in-your-face orange lipstick that’s not for the faint hearted. When I first got it, i’ll be honest, I hated it. It seemed loud and garish. However, I gave it another go, making sure to really blend it into my lips and hey presto, new favourite lipstick.
It is an amplified finish so it is creamy and very easy to apply. It is also very opaque unlike Vegas Volt, so two swipes will have your lips popping. In terms of staying power, it behaves like a matte lipstick as this remained vibrant for a good six hours.
Though it is really bright, I can say to you on good authority that it will complement all skin tones. Warm, neutral or cool toned, this lipstick will suit you as I have seen on a variety of ladies. Like I mentioned earlier, the only stumbling block would be if bright lips are not really your thing. If you are going to take the plunge though, Morange is a good place to start.

Since it is such a bright lipstick, I paired it with muted eyes so as not to scare the general public off, haha.

So what do you guys think? Will you be getting Morange if you haven’t already?
Peace and Love,
