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…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
