MAC Up The Amp Lipstick: Review





MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Up The Amp (£14) - MAC

Recently, I won this lipstick, along with a gorgeous MAC eye shadow palette from Zoe's wonderful blog and  I am literally, 100% in love with my choice of lipstick. I am loving purple toned lip colours at the moment and this one is claimed to be a 'lavender violet' by MAC. On the lips, this is a toned down violet colour, leaning more towards pink, such an easy colour to wear in the day along with moving into the night. The pigmentation is crazy good as well, I'd never tried this finish before and found it to be rather thick to go on, and very creamy but rather hydrating at the same time. I thought myself that the longevity of the product was okay, but nothing amazing but I can live with that for such a pretty colour! I just think this lipstick is on the sweet end of purple, one that will suit practically every skin tone and is just that little bit more out there than your normal pink lippie. If you're at the MAC counter, give this a swatch, you won't be disappointed. 

Have you tried Up The Amp? What do you think?

  2. This looks so lovely, it's unlike anything I've ever worn. I've seen a lot of lipsticks similar to this colour and I think it's high time I invested in one x
