MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick

MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright true orange matte.” It’s a brightened warm-toned orange with a smidgen of red in the undertone and a satiny finish (it doesn’t read entirely matte). That lack of red is actually what makes it stand out against a lot of other orange shades (like MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange, which both appear darker and redder). OCC Banjee is lighter, yellower. I was surprised to find that none of the orange lipsticks in the gallery came close.
