The colour is a bright orange with some red undertones, and when I say bright...I mean bright. MAC calls it a 'mid-tone' orange, but I don't know what they're smoking- it's bright. The shade is definitely on the warmer side- I love wearing it with a tan. There is no shimmer at all. It's a Satin finish, and it surprisingly wears for a long time. I wore this for about 8 hours, and I only touched up once because I wanted it to top up the brightness. It fades really nicely, especially if you really work it into your lips and blot blot blot! I will say this however: this is not the most moisturizing lipstick in the world. I find it a little drying, especially when I'm wearing it for a long time. Make sure to wear a lip balm underneath!
