MAC Lipstick - Vegas Volt

It's a really long time since I bought a MAC lipstick but I was browsing through one of the stores on eBid a while back and saw this little bargain, it was brand new, boxed and was very reasonably priced too.  I haven't got many MAC lipsticks but this colour really appealed to me.

MAC "Vegas Volt"

The colour is Vegas Volt, when I first tried it on I wasn't sure if it was for me as it's quite bright and tend to wear lipsticks with brown or reddish tones so a bit different to the ones I'm used to but after a while I really liked it.  What I liked most is that it's a very creamy, moisturising lipstick and though it isn't particularly long lasting it does at least fade from the lips elegantly rather than leaving a dark outline which I hate.  The longevity of this could probably be enhanced by applying, blotting then reapplying or perhaps with a lip brush, I often find lipsticks last longer when applied with a brush.

I think its probably more of a Summer lipstick, for me at least, as I am quite pale and need some freckles to give me a bit of a glow so I'll save it for a couple of months.  The photo below doesn't really do the product justice but it does give an idea of the colour, I had layered it quite thick which is why its bright, I think for me its probably more flattering as a paler colour, I'm thinking less might be more!

I'm really pleased with this lipstick though and am definitely going to add more MAC to my collection over time, if anyone has any favourite MAC colours they can recommend please let me know, I'd be really interested to hear your thoughts.
