The best way to start off your week is with…
Last fall, MAC Cosmetics released the Vamplify lipgloss formula for a limited time. Now we’ve seen this formula come back a couple times, most recently in the MAC x Brooke Candy collection, and now they are back again with the original shades as well as some new ones! I have two here for review today from the original line-up, so let’s get started!
If you’ve tried MAC Lipglass… well… this is nothing like that. It’s a longwearing, thicker gloss that isn’t tacky. The formula reminds me a bit of Too Faced Melted lipsticks only Vamplify has a bit more of a gel-like texture. What’s Going On? is described as a cool fuchsia with a pearl finish.
What I love about this is it is bright with a ton of shimmery pigment. The high-impact lacquer shine makes my lips look plump and full. It DID feather a bit and started to collect and pool in the corners of my mouth but it was manageable.
Peer Pressure is described as a cool berry with a cream finish. Did I mention these are super hydrating? The colour pigments are mixed with coconut, sweet almond, avocado and sesame which is what gives the lipgloss its high shine and rich, gel-cream texture.
Now Peer Pressure gave me a bit of trouble. It went on patchy the first time I tried it, so for photos I started with a thin layer (shown above). I actually love how this looks but it doesn’t have that super high-impact shine you get when you apply generously.
Here it is after two layers and you can see it’s starting to feather and pool around the edges. So I guess with the darker shades, thinner layers are best.
Swatches shown above are one swipe only, pretty impressive for a gloss but you can see Peer Pressure feathering and pooling together.
You can grab the Vamplify lip glosses for a limited time online starting July 7 and in stores July 14.
