Mac Vegas Volt Lipstick Review and Swatches

Mac Vegas Volt Lipstick Review and Swatches

ISLM Writer: Nimisha

How we all wish to swear by certain things we love, yet we come across some beauties that steal our hearts away once again. Just to ascertain that I talk of materialistic things only when I mention this. Well, enough of flirting around, warm regards my lovely ladies, today I talk of one of the most loved lipstick that I own, Vegas Volt by MAC. Being an ardent lippy addict, I have tons of lipstick in my stash, and yet I get gravitated to this very lipstick. 

As I introduce you to my lippy of the day, let me tell you lovelies that MAC describes this beauty as 'full power coral'.

This marvel currently retails at Rs. 1450.

It is a beautiful coral with a hint of orange from the amplified crème range. This is a color that instantly brightens the face and screams 'SUMMER'. Being highly pigmented, it imparts full intensity in just one clean swipe. It leaves a soft glossy finish on the lipstick.

For the packaging, MAC lipsticks are trademarked with their signature black bullet with the color and the texture mentioned at the bottom. Hence, nothing new there :P

It has a vanilla fragrance that is classic for all MAC lippies.

Coming to the one thing that steals the thunder for this marvellous lipstick is the fact that it tends to settle in the lip lines. So, this make hydrated lips a must for this lipstick to impart its true beauty.

This would look stunning on fair to medium toned beauties. For deeper toned babes, it can be a tricky shade to carry, so I would suggest them to check out how it looks on you before you go ahead and add this to your kitty.


Beautiful shade with a glossy finish.
Does not dry out the lips.


Needs hydrated lips for seamless finished look.
Pricing is a bit steep.

Would definitely repurchase this one! I absolutely find no reason not to :)


  1. I love this shade. You look beautiful :)

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Swathi :) And yes, this shade definitely is beautiful.

  2. The shade looks beautiful on you. The only issue I face with Mac lipsticks is that I find them a bit drying on my lips.I have few and somehow the formula does not work with my lips.

    1. Thanks :)

      For if you find MAC lipsticks a bit drying, you can applying lip chap (aka balm) before applying the lipstick and blot the excess balm just prior to application. Moreover, the Retro Matte/Matte are usually drying. The Amplified Creme as well as lustre ranges should not be so troublesome. Do give them a try. :)

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
