MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a traffic-stopping opaque neon orange.  The name really says it all — it’s bright, in-your-face, and exactly orange.  It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!  It has such a smooth texture with incredibly rich, opaque color.  The finish is creamy, but it has a little bit of a sheen that lights it up.   It really has an amazing feel, and it is one of MAC’s best lipsticks in terms of quality–even if the color may be a little hard to wear!

Is this the right orange for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    I like it! May need to be toned down a little for wear, but whatever, I want!

  2. Kitty

    Wow. That s a very bright colour ! I wouldn t wear it, but it looks good on you

  3. Sweeda88

    I can pull of Vegas Volt easily (which is basically orange), so do you think this would work on me?

  4. Macaddict

    It’s one of my fave colors from MAC! It’s like a primary orange color. It suits me well.

  5. Whoa, thats amazing! Could you maybe do a comparison of this and Morange? :)

  6. This is gorgeous! How close would you say it is to M’Orange?

  7. Annalogik

    This one looks gorgeous! I swatch this lipstick almost every time I end up at mac’s counter. One day I’ll be brave enough to wear this…I swear!

  8. Tiffany

    Love!!! Not surprising, given my fierce love of Morange.

  9. Roxanne

    *Someone* has been tanning, LOL. Gorgeous color. I think anyone can pull off bright colors actually.

  10. Sari

    I need this now !!

  11. Lyndsay

    WOW thats bright! I’m not turned off by the color, but I’m also not compelled to run out to get it… hmm, *if* I were to own this kind of color, I think I would tone it down by dabbing it onto the lips (kind of like a stain) and/or using a nude lipstick over the top. I have a drugstore lipstick that is a BEAUTIFUL orange, and I tend to do that with it. Not all the time, but when I don’t want to be going into a store and be like “BAM! I’ve arrived!” lol

  12. Jennifer

    i like it too, but i dont think it would look good on me :(

  13. Laia

    That’s such a daring colour! I think I’d wear it… *puts it on the list of to-buy lipsticks* :)

  14. nabela

    what finish is it? amplified?

  15. Meredith

    I would look like a total freak in this color. LMAO. : )

  16. Maria

    This is stunning on you.

    I’m cool-toned, around an NW35, but always find orange lipsticks look so beautiful in the tube. Of this and Morange, which do you think would look less silly on me? (I’m not sure how much longer I can talk myself out of an unabashedly orange lipstick! ;))

  17. Lisa C.

    My crossing guard belt in 6th grade was exactly that shade of orange. Maybe your lips are advocating safe sex?

  18. Evelyn

    *ow my eyes!* lol that is the most blindingly bright orange I have ever seen!

  19. Christina

    i kind of want it….

  20. Lowie

    I LOVE IT! I’m totally obsessed with orange lip colors lately, especially on the extra pale (like myself.) I just purchased yesterday Vegas Volt an amplified color that looks totally adorable done with a winged black eyeliner a cute summer dress and a denim jacket! SO summery the perfect BBQ look.

  21. “It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!” Bwa hah hah! Love that! BTW do you think your man is going to do another one of his manly-man reviews again? Loved reading them :)

    I also love this lipstick. I own it and I have NO IDEA what I’m doing with it! LOL! But I love it! :)

  22. Hilana

    Stunning colour. You look like a flamenco dancer. Awesomely beautiful.

  23. inaya

  25. inaya

  26. Tamara

    This color is so gorgeous! I like it

  27. Loquita

    WOW!!! I love this!!! Orange is one of the best colors for me, so I will def. be checking this out. It looks fantastic on you, Christine, btw. :)

  28. Sydney

    I love this. I will definately have to tone it down, but I must have it!

  29. Yvonne

    If you are cool toned, this is fabulous. I am racially mixed with brown hair and eyes and it looks great. I was actually leery of wearing it. Just top it with Mac clear lip glass.

  30. Elysia

    Not sure which to get, neon orange, morange, or Good to Go. Which is your fav?

  31. Aly

    First of all, I love your website and you always give the best reviews(: You really know your stuff! What kind of look would you do for such a bright color? Obviously not something crazy on the eyes.. Maybe you could do an eye tutorial for super bright lipsticks? If you haven’t already.. I have no idea lol..

    • I would do something gold or neutral :)

      • Aly

        Thanks(: Sorry I didn’t even see the question “what would you pair with Mac neon orange?” or something right under this link in the search.. Hope I didn’t bother you too much! (: I know how you have tons of questions to answer.

  32. Zella

    WHERE DO I BUY IT PLEASE? Been looking for this color!!!

    • Aly

      It’s a pro color(: or you could probably look for it on eBay but they over price stuff so much on there..

  33. ANNE

    I looooooove this colour and have just been told by the pro store in London that it is being discontinued :-( Has anyone else heard anything similar at all?

  34. SkatCat

    Will definitely be buying in in the Cindy Sherman collection. I don’t own anything orange and I am loving how this lipstick suits all colors of women. It looks amazing on you Christine!!!
    PS: Have you ever done a review for Jungle Juice lipstick? I never heard of it until recently and can’t find anything on it.

  35. cecilia thomas

  36. Emily

    Was this the same lipstick that Sky Ferreira was putting on in the Adidas all originals commercial?

  37. danica
