This is my "YES Spring Has Ariived" announcement go to lippy. I have it prepped and ready on my vanity when the very final snowflake of winter was ,elted and the tulips I planted on my Yaya yard begin to bloom.
Totally love this color. It is very opaque and just wears fab! Looks great against my dark skin and isn't drying on the lips. Totally recommend it. Check out me talking about purchasing this lipstick on my channel :)
I really absolutely love this color. It's a super bright fuchsia, really strong out of the bullet, though it can be easily applied sheerly for those less bold. I'm NW20, though I feel pretty certain this is a color that would work well on anyone!
The texture is nice -- no dryness -- and it lasts well enough, probably 4 or 5 hours (without eating) before I feel like I need a touchup. It doesn't last through food or drink, but in my experience that's a lot to ask. Maybe I eat anti-lipstick foods, I don't know.
My new favorite thing to do with it is to layer it with Media, or any dark color, to get a slick, shiny dark plum (so perfect for fall!).
Switched from Impassioned (which is more corally) to this as my go-to bright-bright fuschia. It's in your face, but so flattering! Amazing with a subtle matte eye or a lightly shimmery nude eye.
Show Orchid is definitely a cool-toned fuchsia pink lipstick with this gorgeous blue sheen. Itís incredibly bright, I think maybe the brightest hot pink lipstick I own. I love the finish (another amplified creme) and on my lips it applies smoothly and 100% opaque. The pigmentation is incredibly, surprisingly for such a cool-toned lipstick, it really suits medium-tan skintones. Itís long-lasting too, it lasts me through eating and drinking (great for nights out!) and fades to a stain on my lips that is still visible the next day.
I am so happy that I managed to snag this before pro products were available for everyone via the website. I first saw Show Orchid when Kelly Osbourne was wearing it in a photo shoot and I fell in love with it. I'm as pale as Kelly and I've got black hair so I knew it was going to look amazing, and it really does! The formula is really nice, it doesn't bleed so I don't have to use a liner ad it keeps my lips hydrated! Wouldn't hesitate to repurchase this one bit.
Oh how I love this colour for my NC42/C6 skin in the summer time/for night time, evening looks.
My signature look has been referred to as "black hair, black dress/outfit...and PINK lips" thanks to snow orchid lipstick. What i love about this lipstick is that it doesn't bleed on me so I never have to worry about applying lipliner with it.
It's a gorgeous colour and I receive compliments every time I wear it!
Definitely will repurchase. I've had it for a year now and it feels brand new with each wear (I'm not an avid follower of make-up expirey dates) but I don't share my make up products so if it's just me using.
For some time, I'd been looking for a bright bluish pink lipstick that would work with my fair skin and dark hair. I tried one fuchsia after another to no avail: each one made my skin look transparent. Then I tried Show Orchid and was it ever worth the trip to the MAC Pro store to get it!
In the tube it might seem ever so slightly neon but on the lips it has versatility and attitude, a vivacious pink with just enough blue to make one's teeth look whiter :) Try it!
I have been wanting this lip color for soo long. it wasn't available when I wanted it so an artist recommended Girl About Town. It was...Fuschia, it seemed kind of a berry color on my skin because it's light/medium and slightly reddish in pics. I ordered the Show Orchid just hoping it were better. I moisturized my lips, put on concealer and put on the lipstick. The color was BEAUTIFUL a HOT PINK and it doesn't have that red or berry tone like Girl About Town does. It's sooo much more pretty. I'm usually all for pastel or mid-tone pink (Saint Germain, Pink Nouveau) but this shade just made me fall in love with it's surprisingly vivid color. I thought the lighter shades were the only ones that were bright. Show Orchid definitely proved me wrong
Everybody raves about Show Orchid and in swatches it looked just about the most perfect colour for me ever and I knew I'd love it, so I lusted after it for ages. Since buying it I've never worn it out :( It feel dry and drags as it applies and the frost accentuates every little poor dried out line in my lips, making me look like I have the lips of someone double my age. It doesn't even seem to be that frosty a colour, but the dryness and dragging of the lipstick make it appear frosty, strange and out dated. It's a nice colour, but a tad over rated and it most definitely needs to go over well prepped and moisturised lips.
