A Volt of MAC
6 Sep 2013
Back in July I made another sneaky MAC purchase and bought the gorgeous Vegas Volt. I haven't gotten around to actually writing the post until now though!
When I first saw this shade it was amongst an 'orange' collection in the Carnaby Street MAC. I always admire people who can pull off quite a strong orange lip as it can look so amazing and such a twist on the usual statement red. Now I know Vegas Volt isn't actually the brightest of oranges, (being slightly more on the coral side) but its definitely a shade I wouldn't have usually picked so I'm glad I took the leap :)
Vegas Volt is part of the Amplified Creme formula which is so moisturising and creamy on my lips. Its also super pigmented so you only really need one coat to get full coverage. You can always blot your lips a little if you want to pare it down as well.
Its such a great bright colour for summer, but I think it'll definitely still work in the colder months to give a pop of colour to your outfit. :) It seems to be quite long lasting, going at least 2-3 hours before I need to re-apply which isn't bad at all!
Also! Apologies for my slightly moody face in the picture above, if I remember correctly I think I was having one of those days where no photo looked right and I was getting majorly fed up with myself! haha
Let me know what your favourite MAC lipsticks are, cos I'm always on the lookout for more (despite my bank balance screaming no!). :)
By the time you read this I will be on the Isle of Wight at Besitval! SO excitedd! I'll be back on Monday though with a new post soon after telling of my festival weekend :)
