Review and Swatches: Mac Fast Play Lipstick

Oh what a difference a year makes. Next month will see my first year anniversary of my blog. Before dipping my toe into the blogosphere I sharply steered clear of lipstick as the sheer volume of colours, textures, brands and finishes completely overwhelmed me!

In my life before blogging I was a firm advocate and devotee of lip balms and lip glosses as I didn’t have to worry about what colour suited me or if it was fading evenly.

Fast forward to the present day and my former self would not have believed the amount of lipsticks I currently own!

MAC lipsticks are by far my favourite formulation (alongside Charlotte Tilbury but MAC are slightly more affordable). So let me introduce to you the newest addition to my lipstick family: MAC Fast Play.


Fast Play as always has the MAC signature satin black tube packaging and the soft enticing sweet vanilla scent. 

This lipstick has a Amplified finish which is by far my favourite finish by MAC. Amplified packs a punch with colour whilst having a beautiful gloss finish. As a result this lipstick is incredibly comfortable on the lip and is not drying. 
The wear time does not compare to a matte or satin finish but once the gloss wears off the colour fades to a lovely even stain. Gorgeous! 


Now for the colour. For me, this is the perfect combination of MAC Twig & Mehr – if you missed my MAC Lipstick Collection then click the link. 

I absolutely love the delicate balance of cool toned pink and brown – this is such a wearable shade for me and because of the Amplified finish this is super nourishing and comfortable to wear everyday. Love it!

Thanks for reading. What do you think of Fast Play? Have you tried this shade before? Let me know your thoughts as I love reading and replying to your comments.
