so chaud

Wearing my second favorite lipstick, MAC's "So Chaud" (chaud is French for "hot"). It's a matte, tomato-y orange. This color may look red, but compare it to "Ruby Woo" and you'll see the difference. "So Chaud" is much warmer, brighter, and more orange. I love to wear this color for the season because it goes so much cuter with my spring pastels and summer looks. If you want to partake in the coral/orange lip trend this season, "So Chaud" will be perfect for you, especially if you have tanned/yellow-toned skin. With a hint of red warmness in the color, it's fitting to wear without looking neon or washed out. It looks a bit glossy in the picture because I put it over my Rose salve. Without any balm, it's completely matte and smooth. With MAC matte lipsticks, the color always stays on and looks fresh throughout the day. I only have to touch up once. And I swear they put a cookie smell to their lipsticks! I think I love re-applying just to take a whiff of cookies. 

If you have fair skin or would rather try a lighter, subtle orange/coral, I highly suggest Bobbi Brown's "Guava" (Temptalia has a great photo swatch of it here). They have beautiful corals; I wish they worked for me, but they're more peachy pink, which is super cute, but washes me out. 

I took a picture near the window and natural light for you to see the color better. Then I noticed my brother walked in. I think he has a secret agenda. Look at his ready pose.


  1. wow are those brands on your sideline your sponsors??? wow how did you get so many? i am trying to collaborate with boticca.com and its really hard to do.
    by the way can u do me an immense favor? i have the chance to collaborate with boticca.com a jewellery brand but to do that i need to send them traffic by my blog, and this can happen only if people click on the boticca.com link i provide in my newest post, just click nothing more. it would mean the world to me if you just clicked on the link, it would be so helpful since i don't have hundreds of fans to help me out.
    how did you get so many sponsors? did you contact them or did they contact you?
    help me out??? all you need is to click on the link i provide you nothing more.
    maybe leave a comment on my post if u want.
