#30in30 – MAC Vegas Volt


The first inclusion of a MAC lipstick this month is actually not my favourite. I love the name I just hate the colour on me, I wore a peachy blush today and was looking through my collection for a peach/coral lip and decided to give this another go. Suffice to say it will remain one of my least worn, it’s just not me.. I’m better with pink tones.

IMG_7319It’s such a strange colour, almost has a neon tinge to it, so bizarre. It’s red but it’s also orange.. or coral.. I don’t know but the creamy texture is beautiful and although I wouldn’t choose this one if I had my time again there are plenty of creamsheens from MAC I do love.. perhaps that’s a follow up post. What’s your favourite lip finish?


Packaging wise I think we all love these little black bullets, don’t we? So simple and sleek, what’s not to love? Okay so they’re not as interesting as say the Lime Crime holographic unicorns but they are very pretty in their own right and their uniformity has made them a collectors item to many.. myself included. I’ve said before that I don’t think MAC lipsticks are anything special and I stand by that.. their colour selection sets them apart from the rest but formula wise you can definitely find comparable products at the drugstore but that being said there’s something about buying a new MAC lipstick that still FEELS special, don’t you agree? Maybe it’s the box, I don’t know but much as I love my cheaper lippies the little black tube gets me every time.

    I have tried this on lots of times in the shop and love the colour however I agree – i just don’t feel like it looks right on me.
