I am wearing MAC Vegas Volt and it is a stunning coral orange.
I love that this color is super opaque and has a coral undertone so its much more wearable than many of the bright oranges that are also being worn on the runways. To prove it to you here are a couple of the most recent makeup looks from the runways of fashion week.
Orange can go from almost red to practically traffic control. Personally, the hunter orange is a little tricky to pull off because it really dominates the face. I would select one with a more coral undertone. I did the research for you and I'm here to battle between my two favorites. Both are wearable and accessible so if you want to chase after this trend, do it with either of these:
MAC Vegas Volt Vs. Sephora Lip Attitude Glamour G03

|Sephora Lip Attitude in Glamour G03|
|Left Vegas Volt, Right Glamour 03|
Round 1: Finish
Vegas Volt is an Amplified lipstick which means it has a rich creamy opaque texture. Its all about the color with this lipstick. Glamour 03 on the other hand is a much sheerer tone. I had to apply a couple of coats in order to get the color pay off I was looking for.
Round 2: Wearability
Vegas Volt shouts from the roof tops "I am orange!"
Glamour 03 gossips about being orange with her friends.
Either way, people will know your wearing it.
Round 3: Price
Vegas Volt retails for $14.50 and is 0.1 us oz. You can purchase it online by clicking this link http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/168/310/Lipstick/index.tmpl
Glamour 03 retails for $12.00 but I can't find how much product it comes with. By judging it with my eyes, I would guess it has slightly more than Vegas Volt. You can purchase it online here http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P203600&categoryId=S6100&shouldPaginate=true#moreInfo
Bonus Round: Kelsey's Favorite

Until next time,
