summer beauty: MAC All About Orange

it's hard to think that there was a time in my life i wouldn't even consider wearing orange in any way, shape, or form. i guess the color, like red, just scared me.  what a baby...

that, of course, has changed. i've grown up and {thankfully} learned to take more risks.

orange {and red} is no longer off limits to me. in fact, it's found a very special place in my beauty-loving heart. i have everything from handbags and accessories to nail polish and glosses in various oranges; like any bold shade, it's all about finding the one that works best for you. i'm attracted to them  all, brights to pastels, and am even more thrilled with MAC's latest collection, All About Orange!

Orange. its vibrant energy and modern edge ignites fashion and beauty big time in Korea, Asia and the world. it's one of the new global super shades that pops with sizzle and cool sophistication. M•A•C loves a colour with international impact and has translated the trend into a makeup collection for face, lips and nails. from nail lacquer in 'Sweet Pop' to sizzling 'Tangerine Dream' lipstick ~ it’s an homage to orange.

let's take a look at this new collection...
