In my last article, I had mentioned how these days I am so into some different shades of lipsticks, after loving bright pinks for so long. Well, I still do, but the new shades I’m loving now are lilacs, lavenders, mauves, violets, plums and purples. I find these kind of shades to be really unique and a pleasant change for me!

So, today, I am reviewing one of my new favourites in this category – MAC “Up The Amp.” MAC describes this shade as “Lavender Violet” and it is in an amplified crème finish.
The lipstick is priced at Rs. 990 and comes in the usual black and silver case packaging and has the trademark vanilla fragrance that is common among all MAC lipsticks. The vanilla fragrance is pleasant, has no taste on application, and disappears within a few minutes after application. Till date, I have never found any MAC lipstick of mine to attract fungus or have an odd taste or smell, even after 2 years or so.

I would describe this lipstick colour as lavender-violet/light mauve-purple. It has a rich, creamy finish and contains absolutely no frost/shimmer at all, yet gives a glossy shine to the lips.

It has very rich pigmentation, which I like to have in my lipsticks. The colour looks quite unique and is unlike any other colour in my collection. I also could not think of any dupes for this in any other brand. Do you have any suggestions about this?

What I Like about MAC Up The Amp Lipstick:
- Unique shade, would suit light to medium complexions.
- One swipe gives rich, creamy colour.
- In my opinion, there is no need to apply a lip liner as the lipstick tip gives a nice outline within the lips.
- Gives a glossy sheen to the lips.
- Lasts over 4 to 5 hours, survives meals and drinks too.
- Doesn’t accentuate fine lip lines nor does it settle into them.
What I Do Not Like about MAC Up The Amp Lipstick:
- No cons here, except that this kind of shade depends on your personal choice.

Final Word on MAC Up The Amp Lipstick:
If you are on the lookout for an unique lavender-purplish kind of lipstick shade, you should definitely check this out, and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
