FOTD ft MAC Morange (Review)

Hi Peeps,

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.

Swatches and FOTD

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

To end this post, here’s a photo from my Instagram (Yewizzy) showing my full outfit of the day

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

Peace and Love,

    I always shoot for a corally orange nothing to bright. or I would do the orange lightly with tons of lipgloss to mask it.

    • October 27, 2012 / 9:34 pm

      Yeah, coral is a more subtle and everyday wearable way to rock an orange lip..

    Yewie you know bcuz of you I've gone lipstick crazy since you did the 5 shades series. Oh well you didn't do orange then but I went ahead and got 1, MAC So Chaud and I must tell you that it's an amazing lipstick too. Since I'm on a lipstick craze, I'll go get Morange :D. I got the So Chaud cuz I was looking for a matte orange lipstick. The morange looks absolutely stunning on you. P.S when I come back you are teaching me how to do mad eye makeup!

    Hi Yewande!

    You look great in these pics.
    MAC Morange is one of my all-time fav lipsticks. The annoying thing, is that I am doing a #30lipsticksin30days challenge and I cannot find this lippy anywhere!
    This bad boy must have escaped me somehow…
    There's me saying – 'I will find you Morange; I will find you before the challenge date is up!'lol

    Great post – it really suits you hun 😉

    I have been partying hard with Tangerine this year and this looks like an exact Tangerine Tango shade. Wonder why I never bought it cos I love the colour (bold, bright and garish be damned, lol). Nice post and it sure looks good on you.

    First time coming across your blog…gotta say this lippie was made for you. You look amazing in this color doll!

    I've had my eye on it, have yet to try it on b/c I'm orange phobic lippie wise, although not afraid of bold colors at all. I don't think I can quite wear this like you do! Ahmazing
