MAC Cosmetics Up the Amp Review and Swatch



   
If you've been following me on Instagram for a while now, you'd probably know that I really really like plum and purple lippies. I just feel there's something about them. It's like getting to wear your favorite t-shirt for the whole day.


But today's lipstick isn't really a plum (which I have tons of...) but it's really more of a bluish-purple. Purple lipsticks tend to look purple-pink on my lips but I assure you, this lipstick is bluish on me. What you see on the arm swatch is seriously how it looks like in real life. This is probably my most intimidating purple lipstick.

Formula is amazing. I've tried a couple of MAC lipsticks with different finishes and so far, amplified finish is what I love best. It's not drying on my lips but it looks kind of matte. It's creamy but it doesn't have that greasy feeling, so it doesn't feather and slide off. It's super pigmented and lasts about four hours with eating/drinking. It's not patchy at all and it doesn't settle in fine lines on my lips.

I am in love with the formula of this lipstick. I'd probably pick up more colors from the amplified finish line soon.
