MAC Lipstick: So Chaud, I Bought It Twice.

Every now and then I find a lipstick I can’t live without. Most the time, I like a lipstick, then I lose it, and as soon as it’s lost it’s gone from my mind too. I’ll go back to replenish my lipsticks and pick new colors. This summer, I bought So Chaud by MAC, this particular shade of orange is heavy on the red tones, but it’s not quite red, more causal and playful. I had seen orange lipstick around, and thought to give it a try. Runway lips are hard for me, black lipstick anyone? Not for me. Orange on the other hand could work, I look good in orange. It’s one of those colors that people overlook, we don’t see many orange clothes, yet it’s so pretty.

About a week after I bought So Chaud, it disappeared. Maybe it’s in some handbag, jacket, suitcase, maybe it’s in a shoe somewhere. I don’t know, it’s gone. It should have left my mind like all the other lipsticks lost. But no, I kept reaching for it like some kind of phantom hand, only it was a phantom lipstick. So finally, after about a month, of not having it, I picked up another tube. Maybe now, the first one will reappear. Isn’t that how it always works?

    Orange lipstick is always tough; it makes the teeth and skin yellow. But you pull it off marvelously!

    I have a lost MAC lipstick story. I’ve become addicted to Retro, which is red perfection for any skintone. It’s muted and natural and has no problematic tonal issues. I lost it, or so I thought I did. I was on my way to a concert and put on Chanel Lune Rousse, which has a lovely name and a teeth-staining problem. I realized that I could go to the show without Retro, so I rushed to Macy’s to buy two new tubes before I felt settled enough to continue on my way.

    Looking for a lost lipstick is a terrible way to spend an evening.

    Hey Jennine – I love this color too! My issue with lipstick is that my lips dry out though… I can only wear a few brands of gloss that work for everyday, alternatively I can splurge one night with a lipstick, but I will be paying the next couple of days with irritated lips… anyone have that same issue and knows a trick to bypass this so that I can wear my orange red more and with less pain?
