Twig lipstick is a creamy, semi-sheer pink with brownie-pink. It’s almost like a really deep, flesh-toned color.

Stay In Touch lipstick is a creamy, soft-sheen yellow-based brown that goes on fairly opaque, but it is wearable even for those wary of brown.

Spirit lipstick is a semi-sheer beige-based brown with just a touch of pink in it.

Temptalia Asks You

When did you first get into makeup? When did you become full fledged beauty junkie?

Temptalia's Answer.

Just after I turned 18, actually! I pretty much fell in love thereafter, so I was probably just around the same age when I became an addict!

4 Must-Have MAC Orange Lipsticks

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series

A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Morange lipstick is a ridiculously creamy, opaque bright orange shade. This is not for the faint of heart! This is a lipstick one must wear with the utmost confidence.

Meltdown lipstick is a shimmery orange with just a little bit of coral in it. It’s surprisingly wearable, particularly for those with warm, deep skin tones.

So Chaud lipstick is a orangey-reddish shade. It’s not quite a red, but it’s not necessarily bright orange either. Very pigmented, very hot (harhar!).

Charismatic lipstick is a sheer, brownish orange shade with subtle gold shimmer laced through it.

What are your favorite orange lipsticks?
