Hey all lovely people!!! Today I am going to review lipstick from MAC and is MAC Up the Amp Lipstick Review. Generally, purple is considered a very difficult color to wear. As an eyeshadow, it can make you look like bruised. As a lipstick, it can either wash you out or make you look Goth. The purple shade is a very tricky shade and needs lot of manipulations to make it work. As an eyeshadow, you need to have a black eyeliner between the eye and the purple color. As a lipstick, try wearing it mixed with a pink. Yup, a pinkish purple is the best hue you can wear on your lips.
Mac Up The Amp is the most pretty pinkish purple I have ever seen. This lipstick is very special to me for two reasons. First, it is my first Mac lipstick and second, it was a gift from my Mother-in-Law on Karva Chauth. So, naturally whenever I wear this lipstick, I always feel nostalgic. Plus, the color works in every season. Read further to know more about the lipstick.

My experience with Mac Up The Amp Lipstick
Mac Up The Amp is generally not the first lipstick anyone will pick up from Mac. And probably, even if given a chance, I also will pick up some other basic color. But, at that time, I was not much into makeup and had little clue about bestselling colors from Mac. So, when the SA started showing me colors, I graduated towards pinks and purples. Both being my favorite colors 😉 It was my destiny to pick this shade as other shades which I liked were out of stock. So, I went home with a very unique color of lipstick. The shade is a fascinating mix of pink, purple and lavender. That is why this shade will look slightly different on different people. Basically, it will differ in tones – as in it might look more pink or more purple or even more lavender. But the good news is – because of this feature, it will definitely look good on almost all skin tones. 🙂
MAC Up the Amp Lipstick is nicely pigmented. One swipe gives a decent color to the lips. You can obviously layer it up to make it more intense. MAC Up the Amp Lipstick comes in Amplified finish. It has a very creamy and smooth texture with a slight shine. MAC Up the Amp Lipstick gives lips color as well as gloss like shine. The lipstick is very hydrating to start with. However, it dries out my lips after 4-5 hours. So, I prefer wearing a lip balm underneath it. MAC Up the Amp Lipstick has an average staying power. Stays nicely for 4-5 hours and vanishes without leaving a stain. MAC Up the Amp Lipstick comes in standard Mac packaging i.e. a black lipstick case. The name of the lipstick is mentioned on the cap.
In a nutshell, MAC Up the Amp Lipstick is a very pretty pinkish purple color which will look good on most skin tones. If you have enough reds and pinks, try this shade and you will fall in love with purple color. MAC Up the Amp Lipstick is a bit expensive, but you will not be able to find such unique multi-hue color in drugstore brands.
