Lip of the Day: Mac Amplified Creme lipstick in Watch Me Simmer

This pinky coral from the new Shop Mac Cook Mac collection has absolutely hit the spot for me. It's a densely pigmented pop of colour that manages to wear evenly and not dry out my lips too much. Mac lipsticks have a reputation for being drying, but I can't fault this one. Perhaps it's the Amplified Creme finish. I had to reapply after about 4 hours.

Mac's limited collections vary in terms of their packaging. Some are fantastically creative, but often they play it pretty straight. Apart from the brightly coloured outer sleeve, this falls into the latter category. But the beauty of it is in the bullet, not the box. I think this colour is perfect for spring - it's playful, bright and at the same time quite gentle.

Mac lipsticks cost £13.50. Watch Me Simmer is now sold out on the Mac UK website, but keep an eye out for it at your local counter.


  1. What a gorgeous colour, it looks amazing on you!

  2. I agree with Lillian, it looks great on you! I didn't purchase this because I could swear online swatches told me it was too similar to Vegas Volt, but in your photos it looks NOTHING like Vegas Volt. *shakes fist at those people*
