MAC Show Orchid - Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Show Orchid is a bright fuchsia pink lipstick with muted purple shimmer. Its in amplified creme finish which your lips will love. Though I find this one a little weird because its not as opaque as the usual amplified creme lipsticks I've gotten from MAC. This is a little sheer, but definitely buildable. In a single swipe, it can make you look like you're just wearing a bold lip stain. I had to swipe it 2-3 times to get the full opaque coverage that I want. The longevity is phenomenal! Even the morning after I swatched it, with the effort of removing it with baby wipes, the stain was still there.

PROS: Long wearing, creamy texture, fun and bold color that will suit most skin tones, a permanent shade
CONS: A little sheer (but buildable), has a drugstore dupe

 I will repurchase when I don't find something better.
