M.A.C. AMPLIFIED CREME Lipstick- Brick-O-La : Review/Swatch/FOTD

Hi everybody!

M.A.C. Amplified Creme Lipstick Brick-O-:La (INR 990 for 3 g) is described as mid-tone berry and is from the permanent line. It is a gorgeous berry pink with a hint of brown that makes it an amazing color for warm Indian Skin tones. And because it has hints of berry, Pink and Brown, it's actually a very versatile color to have in your vanity  You can pair it up with various kinds of eye makeup or dresses and it will without fail give that polished and neat look to your lips. 




 The Amplified Creme Finish is what makes this lipstick really special. It is creamy and simply glides on the lips to give opaque color in a single swipe (though,as a habit I always go for two!) and keeps the lips moisturized long after it fades. The lipstick lasts for 5+ hrs on me after which it fades to a soft berry stain, and would surely need a touch-up after a heavy meal or some snacks.The finish is creamy -> glossy kinds and makes the lips look healthy and soft. And it's quite a unique shade for a lipstick (in my vanity!) so another big reason to love it all the more.

And here's my FOTD and EOTD with the lipstick:


My Base here is MAC Studio Fix Powder+Foundation.
Blush is P-Pie from the Sleek Blush by three Pumpkin Palette
On my eyes:  Inglot AMC 61 (a matte black with navy blue shimmer) over Shiseido Shimmering Cream eye color-Caviar, reviewed HERE , and Colorbar I-Glide Blackout , and Rimmel Scandal Eyes+ L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara.

Overall, a highly recommended shade to have in your vanity, one of the best from the permanent line!! 
Have a gorgeous day all...

    1. Hey Anuya, thanks for dropping by...No, this is very different from Rosy Nude, this has a lot of berry tones, as compared to Revlon's Rosy Nude, which has more of Pink.. Will try to post a comparative swatch for you tomorrow :)
