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.

Since I fell in love with this lipstick, I wanted to try other products from MAC! Calling the hubby! Can this be my Christmas present? *wide smile*

Looks great! I don't think it would suit my skin tone though, but I'm not going to use a color like this anyway. Thanks for sharing!
This color is really beautiful 😀 love Mac lipsticks <3
Bagay sa 'yo ang shade ng lippy mo! 🙂 I love MAC lipstick, too!
Love the color. 🙂
I don't use makeup often, which is probably why I've never owned a tube of MAC lipstick myself. I do get to use it, though, when my makeup artist friend does me up for events. My fave is Pink Nouveau. 🙂
Awww… always wanted to have a MAC lippie but due to budget constraints, I can't afford to buy. The shade suits you well. I have a purple shade lippie/matte balm from Revlon ( no, I didn't bought it, I won in a contest.. hehe) and I so love the color. And also proved that purple shade lippie helps teeth appear whiter 😉
Mac lipsticks are the best! Aside from the happy skin of course hehe. The color blends on you well =).
It's a nice color on you. Would love to try MAC. 🙂
Nice shade! Looks good on you 😉
true! iba talaga ang mac lipsticks! and the color suits you!
Happy Skin lippies are nice and long wearing din 🙂
Use MAC since college days. The best!
I like the color but I don't think it will suit my skin tone 🙁 I love MAC though 🙂
While I love the pigmentation MAC lipsticks have, I find them drying.
I love the color! I haven't tried MAC lipsticks though. I've only tried concealers and foundation from MAC.
plumb looks really good on you! 🙂
The color looks really good on you. I do find MAC lippies long-wearing, although a bit drying.
Looks great on you. Not really a big lippie fan but MAC is a good brand to splurge on
OMG I love the colour! MAC lippies are love!
Looks really good on you! 🙂 Btw what do you mean "it does transfers" (your "cons" for the product)
Love the color on you. I want to get one for myself!
You are right te color suits fair skinned girls! I want to get one for myself!
Looks good on you… I love lipsticks that moisturized the lips as well 🙂
That lipstick looks good on you! I want to try a Mac lipstick, too. — Maria Teresa Figuerres
the lippie shade looks good on new. I have heard a lot of raves about MAC lipstick,especially that Ruby Woo shade but I am not really that much into make up that I was not curious to give it a try. But it won't hurt if someone will gift me with one, right? 😉
MAC lipsticks are addicting to collect! Few of my favorites are Ruby Woo, Kinda Sexy and most are limited editions. You should try their limited edition shades, its unique. 🙂 http://www.allaboutbeauty101.com
