In LOVE with this color. I also love the formula, this lasts a long time on my lips. I always get compliments, this suits my lighter skin complexion very well. Great for days when I'm feeling a little edgy. Definitely recommend.

I adore the colour of this lipstick. Purple is my favorite colour so I am always attracted to purpley shades in makeup stores. I wouldnt say this colour is unique.. you could find something very similar or an exact dupe. Revlon's Berry Haute, is an exact dupe for Up The Amp. It's just slightly brighter and I think less glossier. Overall I think this is a great colour and would look amazing on every skintone. I am a NC40 and it suits my skintone well. The only reason I didn't give this lipstick a perfect rating is because
(1) there are dupes available for cheaper
(2) i dont find myself reaching for it that much because of the glossy finish
Other than that, its a great shade to have in your lipstick collection, I'm sure you'll get alot of people asking you what lipstick your wearing when you rock this shade!!

Love, love, love this gorgeous lavender pink, it's like a kiss of spring. It goes on smooth and makes my lips feel fabulous. Wears well and gets me compliments all the time. Winner shade!

I bought this lipstick to go against the boring "plain jane" look with a nude lip and minimal makeup, which is fine for supermodels with naturally unique features. The rest of us need MAC UP THE AMP! It is BEAUTIFUL. I receive so many compliments on this from strangers as it stands out and just "pop" spectacularly!

I am glad I purchased this lipstick. Didn't expect to love it so much but it really is so pretty on me. I think it is a colour that will fit most skin tones.

Too blue tone for my yellow skin tone... I suggest Granache from Bite if you want a flatering option for purplely tone.

Definitely part of my top MAC lipstick shades.It comes off as more pink than purple, despite how it appears.The purple is very subtle, so it's easy to rock with any outfit/skintone/occasion.This is a better alternative to Limecrime's Airborne Unicorn, which looks very tacky to me.If you want a bolder shade, go with MAC's Heroine.Up the Amp is the less-amped version of Heroine, I'd say.

This dark rose is bubble-gummy colour, great vanilla smell like more MAC ffregrences and cosmetics..... I still have a tube from early 2006, still didn't finsh it, I own over 100 lipsticks and lipglosses,a nd atleast 40% or more are from the MAC company. MLBB and gives a matte finish, I put ligh layers on, you can build this colour up, it has a shine and is moiturizing, I have colours similr to this not hard to find. It's not my HD an dit's not a limited edition. I can use a hint of pink when I' m in the mood, I will wear this for an evening out or to a party. It has warm cool undertones, I like cool undertones better, a mix of both is one of the best because it gives this pink-esqu lipstick a unique shiny-opaque finish. MAC does make great stuff lasts 8+ hours like most lipsticks do and should

I just bought this lipstick today from mac. I was looking for a good purple color and no matter where I looked, drugstores and all, I just couldn't find a good one. None of the colors were that perfect purple color. I did find Maybelline's color elixir however which is in the shade "vision in violet." It is slightly similar ones it starts to fade a little. But I wanted an actually lipstick that was a beautiful purple shade. I saw a lot of reviews on YouTube about this lipstick. So I figured that I would go to mac and purchase it, without even trying it on. BEST IDEA EVER. I'm SO glad I purchased this. The price is definitely worth it. It looks stunning with my Olive skin tone. I wasn't sure if I could pull it off, but its nice.The money I spent on this lipstick was worth it. I was so sick of buying cheaper lipsticks because they don't usually work that great. But for 15 dollars, id say it was a great purchase. Mac makes some awesome lipsticks. I would definitely re-purchase this if I ever run out. This formula is an Amplified Finish. It is very creamy and isn't drying at all on my lips. Which is definitely a plus. Awesome job Mac (: Definitely try out this lipstick if you love purple lips! You wont be disappointed!

UPDATE: On my skin NW20 skin, almost black hair, brown eyes, I am finding Berry Haute much easier to wear. Up the Amp is fun and cool, but I feel like it might sit on someone with blonde hair and light eyes better than it does me. It's not bad, but Berry Haute slips on easier and looks a bit more easy. ORIGINAL POST: I agree with one of the previous reviewers here (faija I think). While this is similar to Revlon's Berry Haute, Up the Amp, well...it ups the amp. It is just more ooomph than Berry Haute and the texture, color and wear are just more intense, stronger, bolder (got to love that amplified creme finish). Berry Haute is like Up the Amps little sister...sweet and beautiful, but just not yet having the extra sex appeal, sophistication and pizazz as Up the Amp. I love Berry Haute, but it is a much more tame version of Up the Amp (and easier to wear). As for the color of Up the Amp, it is a purple toned shade with elements of berry and fuchsia. I am Nw20 with almost black hair (3n), brown eyes, and rosey lips.PS - I am pretty sure this and Girl About Town are the two shades that Felicity on Arrow wore the first season. I loved the pop of color on her.
