MAC Vegas Volt [Review]



I just couldn't wait to share with you guys the swatches of this beauty by MAC. Yes!! I'm reviewing Vegas Volt today that I got a couple weeks back here! There must be hundreds of reviews on this lipstick I know but I've just had to share my thoughts on it, it was so hard to resist! :)

Vegas Volt is from MAC's permanent line of lipsticks! The Packaging is standard MAC, black and rounded on the top. The bottom has the lipstick name, number and the finish.

My Thoughts:
It is a bright coral shade with more orange in it than pink, has absolutely no shimmer or glitter, though it might actually look glossy to you at first only because the formula is so moisturizing. Whenever I've worn it, it has never failed to make an impact! I applied a single layer on my lips when I had to go out during the daytime once and it turned heads literally!!
Frankly I think from all the reviews and swatches I checked online this color looks different on everybody and I believe it would suit all skin tones being such a nice warm color.
It's an amplified creme finish, which is said to be the most pigmented lipstick texture of MAC's. It applies like a dream and has a yummy vanilla scent to it. The texture is super smooth and creamy, the color is completely opaque. It lasts for about 4 hours and if I blot and apply again that helps it last even longer. Preppng the lips can also make the color pop more and make it last longer. As it fades it leaves behind a peach stain ahhh! it's difficult to describe how gorgeous that is!
It's an easy to wear shade, the color is so versatile that it can be worn on the cheeks as well! Pair it up with winged eyeliner and it looks stunning! Apply it with a bright pink lipliner like Rimmel Indian pink and you get a pretty pinky coral color!
I've tried to capture the actual color of it but somehow the exact shade doesn't translate onto the camera for you to appreciate the true beauy of it, nevertheless I still tried taking shots of the lip swatches in different lights. Take a look below!

  3. I've never been bold enough to try coral before, i love how it looks on others and will be willing to take the orange plunge after seeing how great it looks on Nargis. I loved the shade most in the first and last images.
