Review: my first M.A.C lipstick!

July 29, 2013

After an exciting visit to the M.A.C counter at the Douglas in Groningen (the MUA was absoletely lovely!), I can now proudly announce that I reached an extremely important goal in my life.





One could say this is a milestone in the life of a make up lover – I completely agree. Such a special moment, your first M.A.C lipstick! So here she is…..

M.A.C Ampified Creme Lipstick

The make up artist at the counter helped me choose the shade, together we decided that this Amplified Creme Lipstick, in the shade #A43 Vegas Volt, looked best on me.

This is the colour, it’s a peachy shade which you can build up very easily – as shown in the pictures below:

  1. My bare lips.
  2. I applied a thin layer of the lipstick with a lip brush, for a pretty, peachy hint of colour.
  3. Here I applied the lipstick directly from the tube onto my lips, as you can see the result is very bright and beautiful! As with the picture before, the colour is actually way prettier in reality than on this photograph.
  4. After step 3 I waited a couple of hours (including dinner time) and took the fourth picture. Unfortunately the lipstick didn’t survive the chicken wings (which is quite tough meal for a lipstick, I admit) I ate.

So the lipstick isn’t as long lasting as I’d hoped, but then again that’s what I could expect with such a moisturising formula. Because man, this formula is moisturising! The lipstick feels so soft and creamy, just like a lip balm.

Anyway, back to the buildability (is that even a word?!) of this product. Below are two fullface pictures…

… on the first one I applied a thin layer with a brush (result: an enhanced but natural lip tint, by the way: it’s lighter in real life – I don’t know what happened on this picture), and on the second one I’ve applied a thicker coat using the actual tube of the lipstick (result: bright and cheerful orange/pink lips).

In short: this Amplified Creme Lipstick is very, very versatile!

I could go on and on raving about this lipstick, but there’s really nothing much more to say than these three words: moisturising, versatile, beautiful.

Love it!
