£14 from MAC
Another day another MAC lipstick to get us all in the mood for Spring brights. I love using a bright shade on my lips during spring as heavy duty complexion products like powder full to medium cover ups start to take a back seat, using you lips and eyes as a coal point on your face not only freshens up your look but also keeps your make up feeling light - no risk of melting faces round here!
Vegas Volt is a bright coral-orange toned lipstick with an opaque finish that is very similar to Costa Chic but without that Frost finish, the colour pay off is intense and fully colour blocks my rather pink pout which is great as the true shade is transferred perfectly. This lipstick is part of the Amplified finish range which makes it that vibrant orange coral tone that I have fallen in love with but also means you get around 3-4 hours worth of wear even with talking and indulging the taste buds, which may not seem long compared to my usual matte favourites however with a bright colour like this it tends to fade away rather than suddenly vanish which looks much better than a sudden pale pout.
This is going to be a brilliant colour when the sun is out in full swing especially with a tan, the coral tones will flatter darker skin tones while the vibrancy keeps your look on trend, equally this colour makes a statement on paler skin tones in a whole different way drawing attention to your lips as well as making any understated look super chic. Have you tried Vegas Volt yet, what do you think about it?
