I am not quite sure why I purchased this shade. I think after trying on 10 different ones at the MAC store I felt obliged to buy something and I do love getting a new lipstick! I didn't have any coral colour lipsticks so was keen to get one, however I don't think that this one was the right one for me. It comes out complete orange on my lips and I can't see any hint of this pinky-coral that everyone talks about. When the MAC sales person applied it to me in store it looked nice and brought out the blue in my eyes, she applied it very lightly and the lights were sort of dim so maybe I didn't have a good look at it, plus I was eager to just find something I wanted to buy. When I tried to apply it at home it just came out neon orange which is not a good look for me. If I gently dab it on it's a lighter orange which isn't too bad but I'd definitely have to pair it with the right clothes. Also I'm disappointed by the Amplified formula. The lipstick seems to just settle into the creases of my lips and almost looks like the colour is moving out of place. Overall I think this is still a good lipstick but just not on me. I suggest you definitely go and try it on first before you purchase it as it is a very bold colour.

I bought this shade more than a year ago in my attempt to find a dupe or something similar to YSL 52 (also known as YSL Rogue Pur Couture/Rosy Coral). Yeah, this is what the "My Love from the Star" wave did to me. And coral lipsticks have a special place in my heart than any other hue.

Vegas Volt is well, a rosy kind of coral. Bright color, and punchy too! This will suit a lot of Asian skintones. Koreans love this shade. I prefer this applied on me in a "just-bitten" way; you know where you just apply it on the center of your lips and pat it, and get that faded ombre effect.

Some people on Instagram #vegasvolt pair it with red lipliner. It's pretty! But I never tried that so far... hehehe

Sometimes, I apply it fully on my lips. The dissapointment is that it cakes, and it somehow makes my teeth look yellow! Never stopped me from loving it though, that's the purpose of the "just-bitten" application. Overall, this is one of my top 5 Mac favorites!

The PERFECT going out color, it's so bright and vibrant without looking like an old-fashioned bright bombshell red.

This is one of my all time favorite lipsticks! The color is very versatile, and ranges from the pinky coral most commonly seen in swatches, to a bright almost neon orange when layered up, to a beautiful pale almost peachy coral when dabbed on lightly. All three of these variations work amazingly with my slightly tanned, naturally pale skin. The amplified formula is my favorite from Mac, highly pigmented and creamy. The only thing is after long wear it does tend to bleed slightly at the edges, and if my lips are going through a rough patch this lipstick does tend to highlight this. But a lipliner and a good balm could easily correct these issues.

Beautiful electric coral. My favorite way to wear it is mixed with a little light concealer. I get the prettiest pale neon coral shade that just makes me happy! It has MAC's signature vanilla scent and it lasts all day long. The packaging is very nice.

I love this! It's a bright in your face coral orange. Super comfortable and hydrating. Lasting time is average. Probably not the best shade (or worst) of orange on me (neutral yellow leaning; N1) but I DONT CARE. I love it anyway. It's so summery and fun!

I was very surprised by this lipstick colour. Bright corals tend to look neon orange or neon pink on my very pigmented dark rosy lips (light medium/olive skintone to quite tan in summer). People have called Vegas Volt very orange, so I shied away from yet another too garish "coral" for the longest time.

When I am fair, Vegas Volt is the darkest coral that is not yet red on me, and quite muted! A lot more day time friendly than most people say.

When I am tan, the colour becomes more orange coral, and vibrant. Still, it is more wearable than I would have thought!

There was nothing wrong with this lipstick other than the color itself. Totally orange instead of coral, but it looked amazing on my olive skinned friend. Did absolutely nothing for me. But in general, the wear and opacity of this shade are to be praised.

Pros: lovely coral, smells awesome, creamy and pigmented
Cons: price and settles into lines and does not last all day

I have gotten compliments whenever I wear this. If used sparingly, it's a nice coral but with a heavy hand, has a tendency to look bright orange. I'm keeping this in stock because this is my first ever MAC purchase and it is expensive (lol) but I don't think I'm going to hoard this if ever MAC announces they'll be stopping production..
If used on it's own with no blotting and setting, it will last 2 hours and has a tendency to leave a mild stain. If one goes through the entire hullaballo of setting and blotting it will last you 4 hours with slight fading. I've had this for a little over a year and I still have so much as I don't reach for this too often.

Great spring summer color that actually I've been able to make it work in the fall with olive clothing. On my NC-44 skin it's like a bright neon peach, I've gotten a lot of compliments. The only problem is that it doesn't last long, very creamy tho and pigmented but I goes that's all amplified lippies deliver.
