MAC Amplified Lipstick – Double Shot Review, Swatch

Hello IMBB beauties…..

I was a fool when I thought only browsing IMBB is addictive. You know what I mean…am so happy reading all your lovely comments that I simply started writing my third review for IMBB. This is one of my favorite areas of operation, Lipstick! And that too MAC!

MAC amplified lipstick double shot

I was at the Mac store to find my n*de color but I got the neutral shade as I was not able to decide on the perfect n*de for my NC 42 skin tone. (Welcoming all suggestions ) Initially I was a bit hesitant to go to the Mac counter because I felt the MUAs were not too friendly. But IMBB tempted me so much with all the Mac stuff that I finally gave in and thought to myself, “let them ignore me, I will ignore their tantrums” 😛 Funny enough that very day the supervisor was present at the store and she was so polite and helpful that my whole shopping experience was very pleasant.

Packaging:

MAC Double Shot comes in normal Mac black bullet packaging. I adore the silver specks in the black body. It is quite compact and easy to carry around in your handbag. I love how MAC mentions the finish of the lipstick along-with the names on the back side of the lipstick. The outer paper box also bears the finish of the lipstick which again is a very smart idea.

Finish:

As you all will be knowing MAC comes in a variety of finishes like matte, satin, amplified, frost to name a few. MAC Double Shot comes in amplified finish which I simply adore because it gives my lips a fuller and plumped look.

Pigmentation:

Awesome is the word. I am totally sold for the lipsticks which hide my pigmented lips and give the real color, as seen in the bullet. I simply hate it when the bullet shows a different color and your pigmented lips make a fool out of you and the color as well.

Staying Power:

Stays for a pretty long time, 3-4 hours depending on the food you intake. Though you will find the colour is transferring to your tea cups or coffee mugs but it will not disappear from your lips. Again MAC Double Shot will not leave any stain behind which is a winner for me. I do not mind re-applying the lipstick as it is superbly moisturizing.

My experience with MAC Double Shot Lipstick:

MAC is such a brand which makes me feel special. I love the neutral color that Double Shot imparts to my lips. Wear it mostly with heavy smoky eyes and peach tone blush. Though some people find it washes me off, I actually like that look with dark eyes. It is a dirty pink color with brown undertones, which I believe would be MLBB shade for NC 37-40. As for me…. I’m loving it!

Price:

Rs. 990 for 3gms, but worth every penny.

Pros with MAC Double Shot Lipstick:

  • Amplified finish, hence it gives a plump look.
  • Awesome pigmentation.
  • Back 2 Mac policy applies 😛
  • Smells vanilla.
  • Photographs very well (attached a sleepy picture of mine as reference).

Cons of MAC Double Shot Lipstick:

  • Expensive, but worth.
  • Transfers to cups/mugs.
  • Might wash out NC 42 and above.

IMBB Rating:

4.5/5 (0.5 deducted for all the not-so-important cons)

Will I repurchase Mac Double Shot Lipstick?

Honestly I do not know when I am going to finish up this; probably I will go for Verve once I use this up.

Take care beauties….Muah!

Hihi! I sold it! Yay! No but in person this might look slightly dark but photographs very well, also the base make up has to be flawless to make the colour pop!
