Review of MAC Up The Amp by brkrbrkr
I love this color! Unlike a lot of MAC lipsticks, this one is exactly what is shown on the website's color swatch. A vivid, highly pigmented lavendar that looks great on my pale olive skin, and would probably flatter anyone who wore it. I like layering it on for a shocking purple effect, but you can put it on sheer, too. Compliments almost any eyeshadow color you wear it with. I will definitely repurchase.
UPDATE: After wearing this out a few times, I think I need to change that "compliments almost any eyeshadow color you wear it with" to, "be careful what eyeshadow color you wear it with!" Hahaha. This is a tricker shade than I thought, as it is so shocking and I like wearing it heavy. I've been pairing it with Slightly Off lip pencil, which is almost an identical match. I prefer to wear e/s in silver shades, black (Black Tied being an obvious and very complimentary choice), or very sheer neutrals with black liquid liner. Still a 5 star color in my opinion, but a little tricker than I inititally thought!
