First Impressions // MAC Amplified Lipstick – Fast Play

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

A couple of months ago I was clearing out my makeup and decided to get some old and finished Mac lipsticks recycled in their “back-to-MAC” program for the following new lipstick:

MAC ||  Amplified Creme Lipstick – Fast Play – £17.50 Free
described as a neutral pink

Now the scheme basically lets you return 6 mac products in their primary packaging (i.e. the actual lipstick bullet) in exchange for any lipstick (some exclusions apply, so do ask in store).

After months of wearings nudes and brown I decided to opt for a pink lipstick, something that’s a bit more subdued and flattering. This lipstick is super creamy and pigmented in colour and I felt the need to share with you my try-on swatches!

I feel as though I don’t need to review MAC lipsticks because I’m sure every makeup obsessed lover has started off with at least one MAC lipstick. I know that’s how I started off and was super excited to collect them all (admittedly I have drastically slowed down in recent years) nevertheless,  I’m still excited for the collaborations and launches and I’m currently excited by the MAC x Aladdin collab.

The lipsticks are a great formula, really comfortable and nourishing on the lips, especially this creamy formula which doesn’t sit on the lips or dry them up. It doesn’t bleed a lot, but a lipliner won’t hurt, which in turn will help the longevity of the wear.

Overall, I’m pleased with my colour choice and think it’s super flattering, comfortable and easy to wear.

Until my next post xoxo
