I’ve wanted to get Vegas Volt for the past 2 months and while I was on vacation in the Bahamas, this was the other ‘souvenir’ I ended up getting at the resort’s free-standing MAC store. It was between this and Lady Danger, another longtime want, but I felt like I would be more likely to wear this more. I love a good red, but I just don’t wear them as much in the daytime. Vegas Volt is described as a ‘full power coral’ by MAC, and it’s definitely more of the coral that I’m into that’s not so pink and much more on the orange side. I normally like to take pictures of anything I review before I wear it, but I couldn’t wait to slap this stuff on my lips that night. And I’ve been using it since I’ve been home, so here are my thoughts.
MAC lipstick packaging is good in my book, no complaints in functionality and it looks simple and sleek. The formula is actually an ‘Amplified Crème’-it’s very pigmented and has a crème finish. The formula glides on easily, however I do find that it can cling to dry patches, so I’d recommend exfoliating before wearing. It does feel nice on the lips and it’s not drying at all. It’s definitely well pigmented and you can get very opaque coverage over your lips. I actually prefer to wear it more sheer during the daytime because at full force it’s super strong and for me more ‘night out’. I am in love with the color, again, I can’t get enough of these more orangey corals. Unfortunately the lasting power isn’t as great because it’s a crème formula, but I can get a good 3 hours when I use a lip liner underneath.
I’ve been rotating through this along with my other more peachy/nude/coral lip colors since getting a tan and I’m guessing I’ll be putting a good dent in this one during the rest of the summer. The weather is still being ambivalent as of late, but I did notice that we’ll be hitting the 80’s for a few days next week. As long as it’s not too humid, that makes me happy.
Have you tried Vegas Volt? What do you think of it?
