When the collection first came out, I lingered at a Bobbi Brown counter or two and looked over the neutral shadow palette, but passed - I felt like the colors weren't really distinguishable from one another. I easily passed on the blushes, too, but it took a little more effort to walk away from the sheer lip glosses and the lipsticks. They are so pretty! I especially wanted the orange one. But $23 is a lot of money for a lipstick that I, if I was being honest with myself, would probably only wear once. Maybe twice. So I walked away from the counter, wallet happily still full, but hands empty.
And then I saw that MAC had Neon Orange on its "bye-bye" list (or whatever it's called), so I figured, ah, what the hell. I ordered it when I did my blush haul (also because Tracy made me), and when it got here, I opened it and went, "Holy smokes, that is orange." And I put the cap back on, set it all down carefully, and walked away.

But of course, curiosity got the best of me and I eventually put the damn thing on. I wanted to know if it would pull red on me (as I've seen on some bloggers), or actually be orange. Verdict? It's orange.

What about you? How do you feel about the orange lipstick trend?
