All About Orange Collection from Mac

Last Thursday Mac released their All About Orange collection into stores and at 10am on the dot I was waiting patiently outside my local branch of House of Fraser to get my hands on a couple of pieces. For the first time ever in my Mac shopping years I found myself a lone shopper at the counter rather than grappling to swatch lipsticks and eyeshadows - the perfect opportunity to try something new.

I'm going through a blush obsession of late (in the past month I've gone from owning 1 to 6) and decided this was the perfect opportunity to add orange to my collection. Following a chat with one of their sales assistants (or should I call them make up artists?) we decided to try Honey Jasmine. As the darker of the shades it's probably the least likely I would've chosen myself but this is where listening to the professionals comes in. She sat me in the chair, swept some across my cheeks and my face instantly looked alive. Honey Jasmine was definitely coming home with me.

A lipstick purchase was not on the list but once I'd admired Neon Orange on the assistants and tried it myself it too had to be added to my collection. Yes it's bright, yes it's orange but as I've said before as a predominantly black dress wearing office worker a splash of colour on the lips makes all the difference.

Unfortunately both these items are sold out online and across many stores but did you managed to make any purchases from the collection?

Here I am, all about orange and off to a Trevor Sorbie launch later that evening - and I promise the matching necklace was a fluke, not intentional!

  1. That colour looks so gorgeous on you! I wish that I could pull off an orange but I just can't :/


  2. that colour really suits you. I don't own much orange, but have two orange hued lipsticks (if that makes sense), an orangey pink from CK and a pretty peachy colour from Nars. It's such a good colour for summer.


  3. it looks lovely on you!!! I’m so in love with this collection!! I didn’t buy neon orange but other 3 shades! honey jasmine is amazing!! such a wearable orange blush :)
    Great haul honey! new follower ^_^ xxx

  4. I agree the orange lipstick looks fab on you! I have been after an orange lipstick for a while and have been waiting for them to re-stock the Hayley Williams one. Might have to give Tangerine Dream a go.

  5. The lipstick shade looks gorgeous on you! I love the look of the blusher, too. xo

  10. I've been loving blushes recently too! I went from using NARS Orgasm every single day to trying a bunch of different colors. I managed to pick up Royal Sunset from this collection and I love it!
