Favourite Lipstick of the Moment: MAC Vegas Volt!


Hey guys!
I've been looking for this particular shade of lipstick FOREVER. It's an amplified creme lipstick and very vibrant. I applied it heavily to my lips in this photo, but what I like to do is just dab a tiny bit on and add some clear gloss over top. I can't wait to wear this in the summer months. I've looked up swatches of this lipstick and it honestly looks different on everyone I've seen wearing it. It looks more orange on my lips than coral/pink/salmon. Have you tried Vegas Volt? What are your thoughts?


Oh ya, and I finally got a MAC 187 brush... if you've been following my blog for a while you know how much I've been wanting one. LOL Over a year now?!

  1. That color is gorgeous! I want to get it, but will probably wait until the summer, when I have a tan. It looks bright, but not in your face bright! Very nice! (OMG... Only Borat says "very nice". LMBO!)

  2. Congrats on finding the l/s & buying the 187!!!! Vegas Volt looks awesomeee, I should swatch it at my local MAC counter :)

    187 is my absolute favorite! I bought it in the SE and returned it, then I bought the 188 b/c the 187 is too big for my forehead. I have to muster up the courage and just buy the normal 187, for now I have 3 or 4 other stipplers, but nothing would make me happier than the MAC one.

  6. The colour looks gorgeous - I'll have to add it to my MAC wishlist. There is a coral Dior lipgloss I've been wanting - and this will go perfectly under it!

    How does the MAC 187 compare to the Quo one - and what is the price difference? I don't use liquid foundation that often - so I don't know if I should go for the MAC version.

  17. Thanks ladies for the comments<3

    @Kate Gene - "Very Niceeee" lol That made me laugh.

    @Ella Pretty - The Quo one is quite a bit cheaper, but much too large to use for foundation. I've been using it and it's really hard to get certain places on my face (sometimes I have to go over with a different brush). I personally would just save the money for the 187. It's wayyyy better quality, much softer and smaller. The QUO one the bristles come out all over your face. It's a pain. I don't know how I used it for so long haha.

    ROCHELLE - I would love to have the colour in nail polish version. Thanks for the info!

  19. i totally agree that it looks different on everyone. I saw someone wear it in a youtube video and bought it because of her. I got it home and noticed it looked way more orange on my lips that it did on hers. which is fine cause it is a totally perfect summer color! i can't wait to start wearing it again !

  23. omg i love vegas volt! i just got it recently and i can't wait to wear it. i like it sheer with subtle gloss on top. i also skip the liner when i use this because i want it to look natural and not defined like a glow from within. =)
