MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick, Review Swatches and FOTD

The post on coral lips yesterday did generate a good response. I  decided to review the Vegas Volt Lipstick hence! Oh and this is a picture heavy post. [teeheee I got carried away] :P

This is a bright coral lipstick that demands attention. It is summery, bright yet very flattering. I was skeptical initially cause I'm not someone who experiments much. I stay away from nudes and super bright lipsticks. So this was pretty big for me. I wear it strictly at night.
Oh but you can easily wear it in the day time if you use it as a stain..(with your fingers) or even wear it with gloss.

Note: Pictures are taken without flash, unless otherwise mentioned.


Its an Amplified lipstick and the MAC website describes it as a Full Power Coral.



For reference, I am a NC 40 in MAC, I own the NC 42 Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation though. Review here.
I dont know what it is about winters that make me dark! Its so weird. Its generally the other way round for people. And since I dont bother wearing foundations in summer, (Actually I hardly ever do) I dint bother getting a lighter one. :D

The pictures are with me wearing the NC 42 foundation.

Oh and I did Half FOTDs. :P

This is the makeup I'd pair it with-

    Oh Thanks for saying that about the pictures!:D
    I have an ancient 5 migapixel cannon camera. :P got it when the powershot range just came out in India.
    The camera is all hila hua and the display is shaken cause I dropped it like a gazzillion times! :( and the pictures tear up when I try to expand them.. cause well.. its just 5 megapixel. But I love it to bits!:D thanks so much again. I get super emotional about my pictures!:P:P
