Today I’m reviewing MAC Amplified Creme lipstick in Brick-o-la which is one my favorite lipsticks and also my first one from MAC.
Price : Rs 990
What MAC says about the product :
Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.
My take on the product
MAC Brick-o-la is an Amplified creme finish lipstick from the permanent collection. It comes in the standard black MAC packaging which is quite sturdy and travel friendly. The only con of the packaging is that its not very convenient to locate shades as there is no shade indication except a tiny label on the packaging.
The texture and finish of this lipstick is creamy as is the case with the ‘Amplified Creme’ finishes. It is very pigmented and glides smoothly on the lips . Because of the creamy finish, it feels smooth and moisturizing and gives a healthy fuller appearance to the lips. It is creamy and moisturizing but still not the kind to heal chapped lips, one still needs to have exfoliated lips otherwise the color with cling to the dry flaky areas.
The formula has a good lasting power. It stays 4+ hours on me including light meals in between. It leaves behind a soft stain after 4-5 hours of wear which stays for some more time. Since the lipstick is creamy and moisturizing, I feel the staying power is quite good and better than expected!
Amplified Creme finish lipsticks from MAC are generally a favorite of many as they are smooth, creamy and quite comfortable on the lips!
The shade Brick-o-la :
Brick-o-la is a gorgeous mid tone brownish berry shade. It is one of the most suitable shades for Indian skin tone and one of my personal favorites. I was so confused between Cosmo and Brick-o-la and once I tried both on the lips, Brick-o-la was a clear winner! The shade has a bit of pink, a bit of brown , a bit of berry and a hint of plum. It just works beautifully for warm as well as cool skin tones. It is one of those mid tone shades that are so wearable and versatile and at the same time give a polished, sophisticated look. The shade would suit women of all age groups.
Highly highly recommended!
If you do not have a MAC lipstick, I’d highly recommend this for your first, the formula is great and the shade is gorgeous!
It has a bit of brown but it appears more pink on me here :
MAC Amplified Cremes are smooth, pigmented and creamy lipsticks that are extremely comfortable on the lips and stay for 4+ hours. The formula is most easy to wear and the staying power justifies the price too. The shade Brick-o-la is gorgeous earthy berry shade that is extremely wearable and versatile. It gives a polished, sophisticated look and would suit women of all age groups.
Perfect shade for Indian skin tones, MUST-HAVE shade from MAC!
