Apparently it's in this season. Well there's no apparently about it, it is in!

It was all over models in the New York Fashion Week.

Here's what www.style.com have to say:

Mandarin-painted lips are enjoying a bit of a second coming at New York fashion week. After electrifying the Fall 2009 season at shows like Rag & Bone, Karen Walker, Charles Anastase, and Kinder Aggugini, the eye-popping pout color has reappeared in a high-gloss incarnation at Jill Stuart, in neon at Ohne Titel, and at Marc by Marc Jacobs, where it made a very matte, very magnetic showing. To start things off, makeup artist Dick Page built a rosy cheek using alternating shades of Shiseido’s Luminizing Satin Face Colors, which include two highlighters and four different pinkish hues, before slightly “sketching” models’ lash lines with its Smoothing Eye Liner Pencil in Black and blending in a dollop of its Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment on top for a glossy finish that “makes the entire look come alive.” Then came the lip, a vivid thing that included Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Day Lily layered with a bright orange pigment that Page is reportedly “working on."

I'm not sure why but I feel drawn to buy an Orange lipstick! Not to sound big headed or vain but I feel I could rock it. This is coming from someone who wears bright blue lipgloss.

I don't think I would go for the matte option, I want something slightly shiny but flat in colour. I don't want bright colour and shimmer!

So of course, first port of call was M.A.C and the ever faithful Temptalia, which all photos are courtesy of.

I present you with M.A.C's Morange:





M.A.C describe this as a loudmouth orange. It's definitely bright and slightly retina burning, don't you think? But I'm ever so tempted to buy it just to see.

I know a lot of people wouldn't have the confidence to wear this but what do you think? I think it would look fab with flawless matte skin and loads of lashes!
