MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick [Cosmo] Review, LOTD

I am glad and proud that I own the much raved MAC Cosmo lipstick :D Also, this is my first lipstick from MAC :D I first tried the lipstick at the MAC Store in Chennai and felt the shade doesn't suit me. It usually happens that the most popular lippies doesn't suit me!! Maybelline 'My Mahogany' never showed up on my lips :( My craving for cosmo was still on and during my shopping at Dubai I tried it again and to my surprise both the SA and hubby told it actually looked good on me [I felt the same too :D]. 

I had very badly maintained lips while I tried the shade first, so whatever lipstick I would have tried then, it would have looked bad on me - I was thinking hard and this could have been the only possible reason for the lipstick to look bad on me initially.


Description

MACs Amplified Creme Lipstick is really creamy and pigmented too. It glides on super smooth on my lips and covers all pigmentation in my lips, leaving my lips looking even and soft. I am very comfortable wearing this shade - cosmo, however this shade will look better on lighter skin tones. It comes in the usual black MAC packaging. Doesn't melt or break easily, in spite of being a creamy lipstick. It has a mild vanilla fragrance, though I am not a great vanilla lover I don't mind the smell. MAC describes the color as 'Pink Coco'.


Likes
  • Very creamy.
  • Does not dry my lips.
  • Easily available.
  • Evens out my pigmented lips in just one swipe.
  • Simple and neat packaging.

Dislikes
  • It does not stay on lips for more than 3 hours !!
  • It is hard to describe the color, looks pinkish in the bullet, brownish in swatch and peachy pink on lips :D

Price

The price of MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick is Rs.990 for 3g. However I got this for DH 84 !!! around Rs.1225 !!

This is the moist light shade of lipstick I have..
Verdict

The MAC Amplified Creme lipsticks fall into the creamy pigmented lipsticks category. A good lipstick with various shade choice available. Cosmo is a warm pink shade and I might get more shades for the awesome pigmentation and smooth finish it leaves on my lips.
