MAC Amplified....the low down

Hello there! Hello new followers :)
I do apologise for lack of posting...quite frankly I was away all weekend enjoying myself!

Today I want to take you through my three favourite MAC amplified creme lipsticks.
For those that are new to MAC or MAC lipstick amplified cremes they are highly pigmented with a creme finish. It is because of their moisturising aspect and vibrant colour that I love them so!

To view swatches of all of the MAC amplified range look here

These are my favs:
Girl About Town- this is a MAC lipstick must have and I know is a blogger/Youtube favourite...and I understand why. This striking fuchsia has the ability to glamorise a very plain look. This lipstick is fabulous is putting a spin on the 50s pin up look adding a modern twist. I use this lipstick often out of an evening. Theres something about this colour pop that says "'Ive made an effort tonight!"
I think this picture really aids in showing the vibrancy of this pink shade. As you can see this pink has a red undertone and this contributes in delivering that unquestionable POP!

Up The Amp:, to a lot of women this colour is a little scary and intimidating-don't be! This shade is really buildable so it can be as subtle or as imposing as you want. This lippe looks incredible on WOC when built up. Believe it or not but I sometimes wear this for daytime to add that little glamour to my look if my makeup is very plain. Ive also worn this out with a white dress using the lipstick to modernise the look as a whole.
To show you how unitimidating this colour can really be this is it when only lightly applied.
Its gorgeous purple colour really carries an explicit uniqueness and this is really what makes it a must have.

Chatterbox: This shade has a particular place in my heart because I usually wear it as a daytime lipstick. When I want something other than Hue or Creme d Nude this is my next go to. I wore this colour a lot over the summer as it would freshen up my look.

The only way to really describe this shade is as a pretty pink. Its not bubblegum or anything too outrageous, its a pink with a slight coral undertone which makes it a favourite because it can be used to enhance a range of looks or occasions.

Finally here are the swatches on a white background. The undertones are much more prominent in this image.

So there we have it my favourite MAC amplified cremes!
