I am so curious about wearing an orange lipstick when MAC released their Hayley collection which consists of an orange colored lippie a.k.a. Sounds Like Noise. I was really hesitant to get it because first, I know I will not wear it often enough and 2nd, I'm not sure if I'll look good or funny wearing it. haha. So I looked over at Google if Wet n Wild has an orange lipstick and boom! 24 Carrot Gold showed up. As usual, I can't resist the temptation so I texted The Primp Pad if they still have one (glad that they still have one!) and I ordered it together with Pinkerbell (will do a separate post for it).
Here it is:
24 Carrot Gold has a creamy semi-matte formula in a medium orange shade. You'll easily get an opaque color with just 2 swipes on your lips. It is pigmented like Just Peachy and lasts quite long on my lip (of course, without eating or else, I'll have to re-apply). I really went out of my boundary with this color but I must say, I'm glad I did! It wasn't as scary as you may think (scared that some might think you've got spaghetti sauce on your mouth kind of thing haha). It's a pretty color though and for me, very wearable and I'm thankful it's not as in "orange fruit" orange color because I will be able to use it and not feel awkward. :D
It settled into the lines on my lips because I didn't moisturized it with lipbalm prior applying. Yeah, I was that excited to use it. lolz. Please don't do what I did. :)
And here's my selfie shots wearing
Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold.
Affordable at Php148.00 only at The Primp Pad.
Creamy, opaque and very pigmented.
Lasts for quite a long time w/o eating of course.
Not drying and did not feathered out.
I did not get any allergic reactions (like lip flaking and itchiness)
THE PACKAGING feels realy cheap. (hey, what do you expect^_^)
Not available here in our local counters.
I think, I satisfied my curiosity already about orange lipsticks and if it will be wearable or look alright with me (I hope I didn't looked awful haha).
How about you? Have you tried an wearing an orange lipstick?
