MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss
MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss

MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a deep, muted burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and and a lightly pearlized finish. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and spread easily across the lips, but the semi-opaque coverage made it more apparent just how much color settled into lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing. Anastasia Venom (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Potion (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Toy (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Acoustic (P, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Slay It (P, $7.99) is darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Mixtape (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (DC, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dark as Night (DC, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (DC, $19.50) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Sway to the Sound Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender purple with cool undertones and a cream finish. It applied fairly evenly, though it highlighted lip lines as some of the gloss gathered there. This shade had mostly opaque coverage and lasted nicely for five hours. The formula was moderately hydrating. MAC Night and Daze (P, $19.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Saucy Miss Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark blue-violet with a cream finish. I find it appears bluer when swatched, but due to it being only semi-opaque, the pink tones of my natural lips seems to make it appear almost purplish on. It applied unevenly and tended to look streaky on. The color lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Maybelline Major (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Acting on Impulse Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a deep bluish-teal with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it did not apply particularly well, as the color gathered in lip lines and could have been more even. It lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating (that was the highlight of this one). Too Faced Blue You Away (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Lancome Crystallized Cobalt (10) (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). ColourPop Getty (P, $7.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Maybelline Major (P, $7.99) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to have intense, vivid color paired with a moisturizing, glossy, long-wearing formula. Some shades are very pigmented while others are semi-opaque, and some shades apply evenly while others are more streaky. They have a light-medium thick consistency that’s not heavy or goopy, but it’s not really thin; however, they’re really smooth and creamy, so they feel nice on. There’s no tackiness initially, and it feels a lot like lip balm to me–soft, smooth, and my lips felt supple. I find they develop light to moderate tackiness as they wear on. They wear anywhere from three to five hours and are lightly to moderately hydrating over time. The formula has strong, vanilla scent (stronger than their lipsticks; I can smell it for a bit even when it is applied, not just in the tube) but no discernible taste.

Editor’s Note: At the time of the original review, there were no similar shades of lipgloss close enough to be considered dupes for Sway to the Sound, Saucy Miss, or Acting on Impulse; if there are any dupes in the future, the post will automatically update with them (but it’s not an error!).

Wow, impressive there are no dupes for the purples and teal! On their own, I think they are too sheer and uneven, but will pair nicely with Maybelline’s Loaded Bold lippies or ColourPop lippies. I’m eyeing Saucy Miss

Ugh!!! Acting On Impulse really could have been perfect if only it had more opacity and less streakiness! So sad…?
However, the remaining 3 look very workable. I love With Gusto to wear over VG III lipstick for an uber deep, campy plummy burgundy! Or Miss Saucy over UD Pandemonium for a bit of different take on deep purple! Sway To The Music is the only one that could be slapped on without a lipstick underneath, it would seem.

Woah. Nice to see MAC actually come up with something fun and interesting. It’s been awhile since I was tempted by them. I want to check out some of these in person!

The colours are pretty, but I’m so not impressed by any of these. Pity.
I love your eye makeup. Stunning!
