Swatch, LOTDs and my experience using MAC Chatterbox

Being and amplified finish lipstick, it has a very creamy soft texture and goes almost opaque in one finish ,infact it being a very bright coral colour and me being a NC35 I like to keep it a bit sheer because on days when I am tanned the opaque finish looks a bit awkward tough, even I would advice to blot it a little if you go full opaque on the lips as it would make u feel more comfortable with the brightness, and as it is amplified finish it  does have like a little bit of shine or glossiness to it that we all are familiar of, so I find it more comfortable to blot it so that it takes the shine of as in my opinion it’s a bit too over the top to have an orange on my lips and that too with glossiness ,I preffer matte oranges better ,also the blotting part  also gives the lipstick a longer stay and it transfers way more less when blotted.

For the shade as I said it’s a cool tones orange with a pale pink undertone ,as when applied it tends toward more pinkish orange on my lips, and I like that,  I hate oranges that have red undertone ,so for me Vegas volt is the perfect summer orange,

Having seen the description lets move on to the pros and cons:

Pros

  • Beautiful coral colour, that I absolutely love
  • Amplified in finish ,so is very creamy and glides on easily on the lips
  • Gives the desired pigmentation in a single swipe so no going over and over again, this would make my lipstick last longer
  • Very versatile can be used in different ways on the lips, as  full opaque glossy lip colour, or blotted matte finish or even as a lip stain, I find it a cool colour for blush also if dabbed 2 dots and blended on the cheeks
  • Gives me a good wear time of up to 4 hours with little snacking and if blotted can extend upto 5 to  6 hours
  • Classic vanilla fragrance that I love
  • Doesn’t bleed that’s the best

Cons

  • May be not comfortable for people over NC45

Hope you all liked my review 🙂 Overall, I feel its a great choice for people who are more inclined towards NC40 or below and not more than NC40.

Overall, A great lipstick for fair skin tones… Not a must have shade from MAC.

My Rating: Stying power and texture : 5/5 ; Color 3/5

  1. I have this lipstick and this one and Mehr were my very first MAC lipsticks. I actually don’t like it. The color is nice but it washes me out. I think it will suit ladies who are fair skinned. Also it settles into fine line like crazy. Glad to know that it worked for you.
