MAC | Watch me simmer

Ever since the release of the MAC shop cook collection I've had my eye on this shade, and it's since been added to the core collection so it must be doing something right!
It's described as 'A Bright Pink Orange' though I find it does tend to differ slightly depending on the light. Swatched it looks very orange, in the bullet seems almost red, while on the lips it seems much pinker.
It's my first Amplified finish and I have to say I'm impressed. It's very pigmented, really creamy and I found the staying power to be pretty good too.
Though it might seem quite full on, I’ve found myself reaching for it a lot recently as it adds a pop of colour to a simple outfit and really brightens me up. It's the perfect summer shade and I'm sure it would look gorgeous with a tan.

What do you think lovelies? :)
