Mac Morange, Up The Amp & Cockney

Tuesday, 29 April 2014


Hey Dolls.
I recently won Karen's amazing giveaway, among other goodies it included three Mac lipsticks. I chose the shades Morange, Up The Amp & Cockney. So, today I thought I'd share my thoughts on them.


Morange & Up The Amp are both from the Amplified Creme range. Morange is a bright, bold orange shade & Up The Amp is a deep lavender shade. They both feel very hydrating on the lips & have a slightly glossy finish. The pigmentation is incredible, you only need one sweep to achieve full on intense colour. Both lipsticks have incredible staying power - they last for around 4-5 hours before needing a little touch up. Although If you don't feel like touching up, they do leave a subtle stain on the lips.

Cockney is from the Lustre range. It is a yellow toned red with subtle gold glitter running through it. The colour payoff is a little sheer but that's what I like about it - it's a gorgeous red but not to over the top for everyday. Although the lipstick does contain glitter, it doesn't show on the lips when applied - it just adds to the high shine finish. I did expect the lipstick to be quite sticky because of how glossy it is but it isn't at all & it feels very light on the lips. The staying power for this lipstick isn't so great, after about two hours it had become almost non existent but if you don't mind touching up every now & again - it is definitely worth checking out.

The one thing that really makes all three lipsticks stand out is that they don't enhance any lip imperfections. They glide onto the lips with ease.

All in all, I adore Mac lipsticks. I am incredibly happy with the shades I chose & would love to try more. If you have any recommendations leave them in the comments below.

  4. In my experience, it hasn't made my teeth look yellow. They actually look a little whiter (: xx
