MAC Morange (+ a comparison to the lipstick!)

Way back in May MAC announced they were releasing a new permanent nail line that was going to be available August 2nd (though it is available on the website now and I’ve seen it in some stores…). When I first heard this news it didn’t pique my interest much as MAC is definitely not known for their nail polishes. But then I saw they were releasing a nail polish shade in the same color as my favorite MAC lipstick; Morange. That is when the excitement began and the color definitely did not disappoint!

Morange is a bright orange cream with distinctive red undertones. The color is lovely and quite flattering for an orange. The formula wasn’t great. It was a bit streaky though using three coats did solve that problem.

I was a bit skeptical that MAC would be able to match the nail polish shade exactly to the lipstick. MAC Morange lipstick is an amplified lipstick so it is rather bright. But, I did a comparison of the two (you can see it below the jump) on just white paper and the colors are identical as far as I can tell.

MAC nail polishes are rather pricey at $16. Considering the formula issues I would say pass on these nail polishes unless there is a color you just really want. For a peak at the rest of the new permanent line click here. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this new line plus if you’re just dying to get your hands on a specific color!

Below the jump there is the comparison of Morange lipstick and nail polish along with a slew of other picture 🙂

  1. Beautiful colors!! I don’t buy MAC since it is rather expensive for me. Though I do love that orange polish!!

    • I don’t buy much MAC. But…I think I may have a dupe for this. Or at least something that’s really close. I’ll be posting about that soon 🙂

  2. Looking at the pictures, I think Rimmel Sunset Orange may be a dupe (or at least very close) to this color and it has a great formula. That being said, I completely understand the need to have the matching brand and color. 🙂
