MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Up the Amp (Swatch + Review)
Since I became a mother, I always go for more affordable make up products so I could spend the extra for my little one’s needs.
I do believe that there’s a lot of good yet affordable makeup in the market, you just have a little patience to find the right one. But of course, receiving a makeup as a present, that’s totally a different story. Who wouldn’t want free makeup right? That’s why I want to thank BIG time my mother-in-law for giving this MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Up the Amp she bought from her US trip.
Actually, this is my second time I owned a MAC lipstick, I used to have the famous MAC Ruby Woo which has a matte finished and tossed it a few months ago. To tell you honestly, I’m having a hard time applying that matte lipstick and it makes my lips really drying. I was able to use it occasionally for 3 years and it smells different that’s why I decided to finally throw it away.
Moving on, this amplified creme lipstick enclosed in a matte black-grayish bullet-like lipstick casing.
The cap shuts firmly to secure the product which I’m liking. As far as I know, this creme lipstick retails from 800php ($17) and available in all MAC counters.
Formulated to shade, define and showcase the lips. Hundreds of hues, high-fashion textures. The iconic product that made M·A·C famous.
Up the Amp is a lavender violet with cool undertone which is perfect for fair skin. I felt its smoothness upon swatching and realized, iba talaga ang MAC hahaha. It has a rich and creamy formula that makes the application easy breezy.

I love it! Up the Amp brings a whole different look from my usual pink lip color which I really love.
I was also amazed that it stays longer than to any cream lipsticks I tried which is 4-5 hours with eating and drinking. It also leaves stain at the end of the day, so retouching is just an option. Since it has a cream formula, it moisturizes your lips and keeping it away from dryness. On the side note, it somehow transfers so to avoid it, use a tissue paper to absorb the oil and turn it to a matte finished.
