MAC recently released liquid lipsticks with a fun name, Vamplify! Each time I write this, I have a hard time with the auto correct which wants to change it to Amplify. That would be correct too since these are amplified versions of glosses in a way. There are seventeen shades available in Germany, I would like to show you two of them, called How Chic Is This? and Speed Up.
|MAC Vamplify How Chic Is This? & Speed Up (Dior Be Dior on my nails)|
MAC Vamplify How Chic Is This? is a gorgeous purple which reflects the light in a pretty way. I don't see any shimmer in there but it is glossy. The formula is close to MAC Lipglass, less sticky, and much more pigmented. On the lips How Chic Is This looks like a lipstick topped with a lipgloss. Who wouldn't like this effect?
MAC Speed Up is a shade I would probably never buy myself but therefore it is fun to receive samples, to go out of my comfort zone and try new things. Speed Up is an opaque white based light cool pink. I think it would look natural on very fair ladies. On me though, especially with the tan going on after my holidays, it looks, well, striking! And I am not sure if it is in a good way. Check it yourself...

Here is MAC Vamplify Speed Up on me. When I was editing photos, I was like "OMG I look terrible" and hubby was like "hey you look so pretty in that one". Go figure! I believe somehow with the tan and pink dress it is wearable. Still I am not sure if I would walk out of the door like this. What do you think?

MAC Vamplify How Chic Is This? is my kind of shade. Love love love this one. The formula is long lasting and very comfortable. It is a little sticky but not too much. I am just not so much fan of the scent, it is close to the Lipglasses, I believe it is a vanilla scent and I would classify it as strong. I would prefer it without scent but it doesn't bother me all that much, especially when it is about such a lovely purple, love <3

Melanie here wrote this is close to what you can get with Speed Up and it cracked me up! ;-) Here you can find some tips on how to wear pale pink lipsticks.
Final thoughts: I am not a lip gloss girl but I like the intensity, the glossy finish and comfortable and long wear of new gloss/liquid lipsticks of MAC called Vamplify. I have to yet try more shades out in person but I know for sure that How Chic Is This? will be one of my favorites this season.
Have you checked out Vamplify Lip Glosses? How do you feel about lip glosses which packs lots of pigment?
