MAC All About Orange Summer 2013 (Limited Edition): Out Today

Don't you just love this advert? Yepp, it's all about orange this summer & MAC is catching on with the trend. I think that this collection will be perfect for adding a subtle hint of orange in your everyday wear, just in time for summer, if you're not too comfortable with going full blast with the bright orange trend.

"Orange. Its vibrant energy and modern edge ignites fashion and beauty big time in Korea, the rest of Asia and the world. It's one of the new global super shades that pops with sizzle and cool sophistication. M∙A∙C translates the trend with international impact into a colour collection for face, lips and nails." - MAC US

7 lipsticks (US$15 for 3g)

Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M.A.C famous.

Tarte & Trendy - bright neutral orange cream (lustre)
Neon Orange - bright orange (amplified cream)
Flamingo - light milky bright coral (lustre)
Sushi Kiss - Mid-tone coral cream (satin)
Sweet & Sour - soft peach cream (cremesheen)
Tangerine Dream - warm orange cream (lustre)
Razzlerdazzler - light cream peach (lustre)

3 Cremesheen Glass (US$20 for 2.7ml)

A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M.A.C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Applies with a doe-foot applicator. Use as a top layer to its namesake lipstick or on its own.

Double Happiness - frosted light nude
Imperial Light - frosted light peach
Rising Sun - frosted bright orange

3 Powder Blush (US$21 for 6g)

Colour for the cheeks and face. Various formulas. Different looks.

Royal Sunset - soft cool peach (satin)
Honey Jasmine - soft warm coral (satin)
Immortal Flower - bright peach (satin)

5 Nail Lacquer (US$16 for 10ml)

Revolutionary new high gloss formula. Three long-wearing finishes - cream, sheer, and frosted. Visibly different. Provides no-streak/no-chip finish. Contains conditioners and UV protection. Go hi-lacquer!

Morange - bright cream orange (cream)
Fiestaware - mid tone orange coral (cream)
Sweet Pop - peach cream (cream)
Ke Ai - soft pink frost (frost)

Rainy Season Eye shadow Quad (US$40 for 5.6g)

The highly pigmented powder formula applies evenly, blends and builds beautifully.

Artic Grey - frosted mid-tone grey (lustre)
Courtly Grey - matte cool grey (matte)
Typographic - asphalt black (matte)
Rainy Season - light warm grey frost (satin)

My verdict

Although not strictly just orange - as it has variations of pinks and corals - I still think that this collection is perfect for summer. I'm most excited to try:
Lipstick: Sushi Kiss
Cremesheen Glass: Double Happiness
Powder Blush: Honey Jasmine
Nail Lacquer: Ke Ai

Yes, as you can see, I prefer softer shades :D

For the eyeshadow quad, I'm a little disappointed as it seems like the 'odd one out' of the collection since there's not a bit of orange! I thought that they may've included either bright orange or coral eyeshadow shades and the eyeshadow 'rainy season' quad isn't very summery :( BUT, I guess it can either be a base or accompany any brighter eyeshadow shades you already have (:

Coming to stores on: June 6th (TODAY!)
