Smashbox Be Legendary in Mandarin on Medium skin?

    

 

Would this electric coral clash with a medium skin tone? 

I'm loving the orange trend right now but I definitely don't think I could pull off an upfront orange color. This would be a nice compromise but I'm still now sure if it would work. Has anyone with medium skin purchased and loved this?

This shade is beautiful! I saw it in store earlier today and tried it on. I, myself, have medium skin. I don't think the color swatch here is quite as accurate as it really is. I would say the color leans more towards an orange with plenty of red undertones. It's certainly a gorgeous shade, if I do say so myself. I haven't bought it yet, but it does look lovely on me. I asked a question similar to this the other night. I heard that Sephora + Pantone Universe lipstick is a flattering orange for most skintones.

I was googling swatches of it last night and loved the color even more, though the ones I saw were still tried out on lighter skinned people. There isn't a store close to me for me to try it on so it's reassuring that another medium-skinned lady had a positive reaction to trying it on. Thanks for the reply!
