MAC Vamplify Lipglosses in "Modern Drama", "Hyper-fabulous" & "Speed Up": Review and Swatches
For Fall 2015, MAC is releasing a new line of lip colors promising intense coloration and a long-wearing, moisturizing shine. The Vamplify Lipgloss ($24 CAD) collection has 17 shades infused with a color-boosting technology and a natural oil-based formulation, to see some swatches, click.......

The Mac Vamplify glosses come in very long and thin lipgloss tubes. The doe-foot applicator is slanted near the tip to give a smoother and more even application.

Promising a dramatic pigmentation, these MAC Vamplify glosses are certainly very color-saturated. "Modern Drama" is a deep wine; this looks almost black in the tube, but it applies a lot sheerer and the color is unfortunately patchy. "Hyper-fabulous" is a creamy brown beige that's super opaque and smooth. Finally, "Speed Up" is a pale cool pink cream; this one is surprisingly pigmented despite how light the color is.
In terms for formulation, all these glosses have a shiny but sticky texture (even compared to MAC Lipglasses). The upside of this is a longer wear as the colors cling better to the lips than the slicker, more non-sticky glosses.

These are some very pigmented glosses. Both "Speed Up" and "Hyper-fabulous" are pigmented and creamy but "Modern Drama" is way too patchy and difficult to work with. Additionally, although long-wearing, the formulation is a bit too sticky for my liking.

MAC is available online and in stores at MAC boutiques.
