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.

Sodamnworthit.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.

Love this hot pink fuchsia lipstick! It's very wearable unlike many of the other fuchsias I've encountered (girl about town, lickable, etc). Fuchsias tend to clash with my fair nc25 skin because of the strong blue undertones. I don't know what it is about Show Orchid, but it's really gorgeous and pictures online really can't justify how amazing it looks in person. All I need to do is find a nice lipliner to wear it with (I've heard that a bright red lipliner goes good with fuchsia lipsticks). It's a nice color I think everyone should own. Bright, vibrant, doesn't make me look older... (a lot of bold lipsticks make me look older than my age).

Just like the other reviewers said, this lipstick is intimidating when you see it in the package. It looks like a bright fuscia, scarey bright. I opened the tube and I was like "uhh no". But, I said let me try it, who's going to see. Absolutely beautiful. Yes, it's bright, but in a gorgeous way. It brightens up your face. I wore it to work this morning with a grey smokey eye, and it looks so good! Also, used it with Joyer lip conditioner underneath which makes it look a little more glossy. Anyone who likes the Kim K dramatic bright lip, should give it a try!
