First Impression | M.A.C Vamplify Lipgloss

This sortta ting is precisely why 'New In' posts should be a staple on this blog.

Anyho, I'm finally bringing to you the products I picked up from the Vamplify Collection. A few shades are still available on M.A.C's website and local M.A.C counters.

M.A.C says: "A lipgloss infused with colour-boosting technology that’s loaded with pigments.

Our most dramatic lipgloss yet. Infused with a new colour-boosting technology, the formula is loaded with high-powered pigments that glisten with a delicious shine. One swipe loads lips with attitude, as a combination of lush natural oils – including coconut, sweet almond, avocado and sesame – polish with impeccable, moisturizing colour. The glossy colour wears comfortably for hours, for a look that comes on strong and doesn’t let go.

As you can see the colour range is pure suga; there's a shade for everyone. The ones below really caught my eye.

L - R: 'Anything But Demure', 'Tuned In', 'Hyper-Fabulous', 'How Chic Is This?', 'She-Rebel' and 'Peer Pressure'

If memory serves me correct  - Instagram says these pics are from 20 weeks ago - these were retailing for $45BDS DF a pop. I bought three initially fully intending to get some more another time. Well, as most things with M.A.C goes, by that time the other shades I was interested in were sold out. The fact that a few are still available on M.A.C's website makes me think that the full range will be restocked.

'Hyper-Fabulous'

'Tuned In'

Like M.A.C says it's a smooth creamy formula. Each of these shades contain golden shimmer particles that stick to the lips even after the gloss has been wiped away. I hope that the 'non-bleeding' and 'non feathering' claims are also true 'cause that would be tragic if you chose to purchase a darker shade and it migrated all over your face.

While the tubes are longer than the traditional M.A.C LipGlass ones they actually contain 0.01 fl. oz. less product; and cost $5USD more.

Another difference is the applicator - it's more slanted.

I found these products to be easy to apply. The texture is less sticky (they're not thin by any means though) and the colours are more opaque than traditional M.A.C LipGlasses. The nude shades especially would make a good 'purse product'. The darkest of the three, 'Hyper-Fabulous' is my current favourite.

Have you tried any shades from this line? Let us know in the comments.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.
