MAC Fast Play Lipstick- Review, Price In India, Swatches

Hi Everyone

I am back with another lipstick review, this one again from MAC. It is the MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Fast Play. I have been loving (read: obsessed with) this lipstick for the past couple of months and had raved about it in my February Favourites post too. So let’s get to the review and see what’s keeping me hooked to this one.

Review

MAC Fast Play comes in MAC’s classic black sturdy packaging and has a faint sweet vanilla fragrance to it. The fragrance is not overpowering at all and is hardly detectable on the lips.

Coming on to the lipstick, it has a very creamy formula. It glides on the lips like butter. The best thing about the formula is that it actually hydrates the lips. Some creamy lipsticks I’ve tried just sit on top of the lips but this one is different! I keep it for days when I am in a hurry and haven’t had time to prep and moisturize my lips beforehand.

Fast Play is very highly pigmented and just one swipe is all you need to achieve an opaque coverage. The formula has no shimmer in it, just a light sheenComing on to the staying power, despite being a very creamy product, it manages to stay on my lips for 5-6 hours with food/drinks in between. This is again pretty awesome because, with this on my lips, I don’t have to worry about retouching my lipstick time and again.

And now on to the shade. MAC describes it as a neutral pink. On my lips, it looks like a muted mauvish pink (with slight brown undertones) that is a perfect MLBB color for me. The shade does tend to look different on different people and sometimes seems different with change in lighting. So I would suggest you to try it under natural light (and not the store lights) before you purchase it.

The Good

-Very hydrating formula

-Has a slight sheen to it without any shimmer

-Stays on for hours with food and drinks in between

-Creamy formula; glides on the lips like butter

-Sturdy packaging

-Neutral shade; ideal for work

The Not-So-Good

Can’t think of anything except the price!

Overall Thoughts

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Fast Play is everything it claims to be! The shade of the lipstick is not a very unique shade and can easily be found in other drugstore brands. What sets this lipstick apart is its formula. It is light, very creamy, highly moisturizing, completely opaque and stays on for hours at a stretch. Not a must-have because of a pretty dupable shade but certainly one of the best lipstick formulas I’ve tried. I’m completely obsessed with this one!
