How a "Tita" Shade Became a Bestseller
Chili was one of my first two lipsticks from MAC Cosmetics, the other one being Marrakech, another matte that has since been discontinued. Described as a "brownish orange red," Chili is universally flattering.

Unfortunately, it wasn't a very popular shade among young women. Thanks to Korean superstar Suzy, it is now.

The lovely Suzy was rumored to wear MAC Chili two years ago and it was sold out everywhere in Korea. Actually, Chili was sold out even in other Asian countries.
According to her makeup artist, Suzy actually wore a combination of MAC Diva and Shu Uemura Modern Red.
Two years later, everybody is still obsessed with MAC Chili.
But instead of wearing it full on, young women are wearing Chili the Korean way--diffused at the edges with fuller color in the middle.
We're just happy that Chili isn't just for "titas," thanks to the beautiful Suzy.
Chili has been described as perfect for autumn because the color reminds you of autumn leaves.
The Anna Edit
Saab Magalona-Bacarro has never wavered in her love for Chili. She loves it and considers it one of her favorites.
So what are your favorite orange-toned lipsticks? We'd love to hear from you.
