MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick

I have finally made my first MAC lipstick purchase! I'm so excited about this, it's definitely been a long time coming. I hear so much about these lipsticks on blogs and youtube but I never got round to getting one because there isn't a MAC store or counter anywhere within miles of where I live for some reason.  

The only option I really had in this case, would be to order online but I worried it would be much more difficult that way, as you can't really see the colours properly, however the other week I decided to finally take the plunge!

Then came the very difficult decision of which shade to go for, and considering that I had recently been after a new coral shade of lipstick and after a lot of googling to see swatches of the different shades, I went for Vegas Volt. 

This shade is in the Amplified Creme finish. I'm not entirely sure about the differences between all the finishes of the MAC lipsticks so do let me know in the comments if you do, but I believe this one of the more creamy and moisturising formulas, which I really like as it doesn't feel too drying on the lips and has pretty good lasting power.

I absolutely love this shade. It is the perfect coral that can be worn in several ways to suit any spring or summer look. I have quite a light coverage of the lipstick on in the photo but it could also be built up to be very vibrant colour too depending on your mood.

I am very happy with this purchase and choice of shade overall and I can definitely see myself buying a couple more shades in the not too distant future! 

What is your favourite MAC lipstick? Any recommendations?

  6. Was so close to buying this today but went for Costa Chic instead, definitely still on my wishlist though. I'm exactly the same as you and have no MAC counter (or any beauty counter) nearby so google images is a god send when getting a feel for the colour!! xx

    1. Costa Chic is a lovely colour too :) Yeah it's annoying isn't it! I have quite a few department shops and beauty counters near me just no MAC ones for some reason :( xx

  7. That shade suits you a lot. I have a lot of MAC lipsticks and I hardly ever wear them which is ridiculous but I find they dry out my lips :(
