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.
