MAC PRO Lip Palette – 6 Editorial Oranges: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

In Fall of 2012, MAC PRO released five brand new Lip Palettes containing six lipsticks each, all of which are part of the permanent line of lipsticks. In this post, I will be reviewing the 6 Editorial Oranges Lip Palette. This palette is a great mixture of bold, warm colors as well as softer, more shimmery hues… Editorial Oranges will be hot for Spring and Summer!

These palettes were certainly designed with the professional makeup artist in mind… They save space in a kit or makeup bag and are convenient to use on set. You don’t have to dig around in your lipstick bag or search through tons of lipsticks in your palette to find the color you’re looking for… Each palette is arranged by color family, so you can just grab one if you need a red lip or another for a neutral brown look. These lipsticks can be used alone or mixed on a palette to create something new and unique.

As an every day consumer, you may or may not be head over heels in love with these… It’s nice to be able to grab one little palette of lipsticks and have all your pinks or reds or oranges right in front of you. The only real inconvenience I can see is that you have to apply these with a brush, but that’s usually a better, more controllable way to apply lipstick anyway! MAC makes great lip brushes that are easy to travel with, so you can toss one into you bag along with your PRO Lip Palette… You can choose between the 316 Lip Brush with a normal, removable cap, or the 318 Retractable Lip Brush that has an open end, but retracts and expands when you push or pull on it (so you can’t lose the cap, but it stays covered in your bag).

MAC Lipsticks typically wear for 4-6 hours… Longer with Prep + Prime Lip and a liner of some sort. They apply smoothly and have good color payoff. MAC Lipsticks have a faint vanilla scent and no taste.

Sandy B (Frost):   Sandy B is a “light shell pink” with a Frost finish… It’s a light-medium, warm toned coral-pink with a golden frost. Color payoff is nice, but the coverage is not opaque. Since it is a frost, it takes a little bit of blending to make it look completely even.

So Chaud (Matte):   So Chaud is an “intense reddish-orange” with a Matte finish. This lipstick is a very warm toned, true red-orange with a hint of fiery coral. Although this is a matte, is has a natural sheen that fades to a true matte as time goes by. So Chaud gives 100% opaque, even coverage with very little product and feels creamy.

Look At Her (Sheen Supreme):   Look At Her is a “metallic copper” with a Sheen Supreme finish… It is the only Sheen Supreme in these palettes. It’s a mid tone, warm, coppery tan with a golden, shimmery sheen. It only has about 70% opacity but still has good color payoff. This is typical with Sheen Supremes because they’re super creamy and moisturizing. The texture is very soft and feels nourishing on the lips… Probably because Sheen Supremes contain shea butter!
