MAC Vegas Volt Amplified Lipstick


This is not the first, and it won’t be the last post from me, on one of the MAC ‘Amplified Lipstick’ shades. On this occasion it’s ‘Vegas Volt’ – Mac’s full power coral lipstick.

The Amplified Lipsticks are really creamy, really vibrant, and really bright.

It’s in the same family of colours – but far easier to wear – than ‘Morange’ the fabulous extreme orange shade that I mentioned in July. This is a powerful lipstick – a good choice for those who want a more lively day lipstick. It’s an interesting bold coral – a good alternative to a statement red.


Good mixes –

MAC Vegas Volt + MAC Lady Danger = Red coral vivid matte finish



MAC Vegas Volt + MAC Myth =  Nudey coral. Apply nude ‘Myth’ and then amp it up with a layer of Vegas Volt over the top.



Who can wear Vegas Volt? –

I have dark hair and relatively pale skin and this lipstick works very well – I’ve always been drawn to corals – both for lips and cheeks.

It would be a great holiday shade for anyone, but I would say that Vegas Volt would look particularly nice on fairer skins.

Good for asian skin tones, or for brunettes with a subtle tan. But it would work better with blonde hair if skin is pale – or everything could end up being a little bit too bright! Brown, green or hazel eyes – beautiful with coral.

    Oh great to see a good review of this, I was toying with the idea of buying it at the weekend in MAC cos I really want a nice coral lipstick but I just left it. I have the same colouring as you and I only just discovered how nice corals are on me! Got a lovely coral lip & cheek colour from MAC’s “casual colour” range and I love it but it was a limited collection 🙁 Oh and Coral lips & cheeks make blue eyes really pop too!

      I am devastated about the MAC casual colour. I wanted the coral so much, and it went before I could buy it – so annoying!!!!

        I know, totally annoying! I would have bought all of the colours. I’m hoping they’ll bring them out again in another collection. Great blog by the way 🙂
