MAC Vamplify Lip Gloss - Suggestive Review and Giveaway

I'm a massive fan of MAC Cosmetics, a little biased most of the time as they're my favourite brand so when I was at the airport during my recent trip I couldn't resist visiting the MAC counter to get a little discount. I didn't initially go to find a lipgloss, I wanted to replace my Russian Red lipstick but I spotted the NEW MAC Vamplify and had to pick it up! I wasn't sure I'd like it very much as I'm more of a matte lipstick type of girl but I fell in love instantly.
The gloss has an extremely creamy texture and feels very moisturising on the lips, at first I found it a little heavy but the more I use it the more I love it and become used to the heavy feeling. The doe foot applicator is perfect for a flawless finish. Every time I've worn it I've not used a liner as I don't have a shade that matches close enough but I'd recommend it to help keep the shape of the gloss as after a few drinks it bleeds a little. 

The shade has such amazing pigmentation, it's unreal! MAC state that is is an 'intense blue red', but I'd say it's a deep red with pink undertones. It takes a few layers to get the opaqueness I have in my pictures but even with one layer it's pretty opaque, it depends what look you're going for. MAC also say that this is their most dramatic lipgloss yet and I agree, this kicks every other MAC lipgloss I've tried in the butt!

  • Lips feel soft and moisturised
  • The brush is the perfect shape for application
  • Great vanilla scent
  • Great pigmentation
  • Good coverage
  • Lasts about 2-3 hours (depending on what you're doing)
  • Expensive, £15.30 at the airport or £18 in stores (most sold out)
  • Needs a few layers to get a thick, opaque shade
  • Hard to get off, leaves a stain 
  • It's only out for a limited amount of time
