In Detail MAC Vegas Volt Amplified Creme Lipstick Review, Swatches and My Experience
M.A.C Amplified crème lipsticks come in the signature MAC packing i.e. black tube with M.A.C written in silver. Since it’s amplified range the bottle has little shimmer soft of texture. The tube closes with a click making sure that the tube is all closed and locked and there is no chance of any damage to the product.
The colour name and number is written on the bottom which makes it easier to spot the shade without opening each and every M.A.C lipstick in your vanity.
The formulation of this product is very creamy and moisturising, it glides on the lips without any tugging and doesn’t bleed around the edges. Even though the lipstick is not matte, its very pigmented and versatile. A simple dab on the lips acts as a light lip balm, a single swipe gives a natural creamy finish and if you want it too look glossy and lustrous 2 to 3 wipes and it’s a popping super pigmented glossy finish kind of day.
Because of the creamy formula you don’t need to apply any lip balm before hand, if you do have extremely dry lips exfoliating is suggested so that the product doesn’t look uneven or settle in the dry patches.
When you open the tube, it has very mild vanilla fragrance to it which is mac signature fragrance for its lipsticks, you can try the matte lipsticks or amplified or liquid or even glosses they all have this fragrance.
It’s a soft fragrance and fades in a while it’s not very long lasting so even if you are not a fan of fragrant lipsticks you can still wear this without getting uncomfortable or uneasy. Usually it’s almost gone in an hour.
It’s a beautiful coral color with pink and yellow undertones making it look coral peachy kind of a shade. Though a unique shade it might not look the same on deeper skin tone. It’ll look a bit on the neon peach kind of shade but can be used as a light tint by all.
Its the kind of shade that makes you face look brighter and gives a soft nice day time look but at the same time can be used to create a bold statement evening out or a night time kind of a look.
Its stays for a decent amount of time but I cannot say it’s a very long-lasting lipstick. It transfers easily which means if you are eating or drinking you will need to touch up afterwards, otherwise it’ll stay for 4-5 hours without any meals. It’ll fade into a nice tint and doesn’t leave your lips looking all bare. It doesn’t feather or bleed at all.
It can be easily removed with a wet wipe or a makeup remover. it comes off at once so no scrubbing or tugging will be needed.

Cons of MAC Vegas Volt Amplified Creme Lipstick
- On the pricier side
- Some people might not like that its scented

Don’t apply too much lip balm before applying the amplified lipstick as its quite creamy the lipstick won’t stay for long and would transfer a lot more if it has a balm underneath. Nice lips exfoliation is suggested prior to using the lipstick.
