I know, ANOTHER Maybelline lipstick post... But in the words of Depeche Mode "I just can't get enough!" - If you know me, you'll know I've been dying to get my hands on an orange lippy ever since I saw MAC's collection for summer. But with them never in stock when I go, and my disliking for ordering online - unless I've tried it on - I'd given up, until finally going in Boots the other day and snagging this last little beauty...

I've always loved an orange lippy, especially when I saw them in MAC, but I was never sure if I could pull one off, or if I would be daring enough to! But after 'umming' and 'aaahhhing' and obviously loads of snapchatting pics of me in it to my nearest and dearest (even my dad got an opinion!) I decided I liked it and it was a must...

I love this orange.. It brings out the tan I've manages to just grasp over those hotter days and is versatile in a way you can make it a very vivid and bright for a night out or dab it down for a subtle and peachy colour during the day. The pigmentation is spot on: one swipe over my lips and it's full coverage. It is also very smooth and creamy, so if I forget to apply lip balm prior to application - which you know me, I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached -  it doesn't dry my lips, basically just like the coral shade I reviewed. It has a nice sweet scent, a bit like a lip balm, but not too overwhelming. Of course, I was impressed by the lasting power:  it gives a nice stain to the lips making the colour still visible after many hours of wear - even after a meal or a drink - so there is not need to constantly reapply it.

I was going to do a pro's and con's bit, but I've not really found any con's with this as of yet! I'm pretty happy with it all round: Gorge packaging, that looks more high end than it is. Lasting power. Vivid like a MAC, for half he price. Gorgeous pigmentation. Versatile.... Overall pretty much a perfect lippy for me... Well perhaps matching it outfits.. I went for monochrome, but I'm thinking a grey playsuit to style it with? (Any ideas?)

I really recommend this lippy if you are looking for a fun bright and different lip colour for the summer- or what's left of it! It's unlike any other lip colour I've ever seen... I've finally got my tango lips!

I'd love to know if you've tried this or any like it you could recommend to me...
