MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick Review

Hey everyone!
I've had vegas volt lipstick for a few months (it was my "you survived the school year" present to myself) and I've worn it enough where I think I can do a good review on it! 

This is a permanent lipstick and is an amplified finish. It has the typical MAC lipstick packaging and the vanilla scent that all MAC lipsticks have. The shade is a medium coral that has strong red undertones (as opposed to orange or pink). It does not contain any shimmer or frost. It gives near opaque coverage when applied and applies smoothly and evenly. This shade does show unevenness so I would recommend applying a balm and exfoliating your lips before using this shade. It has good staying power and lasts a good 5-6 hours with light staining afterwards. I can't think of any dupes for this shade off of my head because it is a more unique shade for a coral being that it is a medium, red based coral. 

Overall, I think that if you have deeper skin or are a little more tan, this would look stunning on you, but if you're fair, you may look better with a pink based coral or if you sheer out this lipstick so its more of a "wash of color" than fully opaque. I did a tutorial on how to sheer out lipsticks, which I'll link here.  I would recommend this lipstick and I give it 2 thumbs up! If you have this lipstick, let me know your thoughts on it in the comments below!
