Review: MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Half N Half

If there's a shade of lipstick that we'll never stop looking for, I think it's usually gon be the my-lips-but-better shade.

At least for me that's the case.

When my friend went to Singapore last December, I told her to buy me this lipstick. Then she decided to give it to me as a christmas present! Yay! I've been looking for this shade for several months. It's not available here and HK (or always out of stock).

When I first saw it, I thought it would be too brown on my lips. I expected it to be a bit darker than Creme D Nude and Peachstock but not to the point that I'd actually think it's really brown, if you get my point.

and finally, on my lips!

- it's MAC! I love MAC!
- It's Amplified Creme so the texture is love
- very neutral shade; can be used anytime of the day
- lasts for several hours
- cheaper if bought in another country

- not available in MNL

I really like this lipstick. I've been using this for months breaking my own rules of using a different lipstick weekly. If I'm not mistaken (recently, I've been losing track of dates), I've been using this from January to March or even mid-April. Now, I switch between this and Cosmo - another amplified creme lippie.

So, what do you think about this lipstick? Yay or Nay?

Good night!


  1. I love Amplified Creme lipstick! The texture and pigmentation is absolutely amazing. Super annoying thing happened to me recently - I asked my sister to buy me Cosmo in Singapore and I lost the lipstick at a relative's house week later. :(

  2. Definitely yay! :) Looks good on you! *and Christmas presents are love! <3

  3. My boyfriend's getting me a MAC lippie from Singapore over the weekend, I'm super excited! It's my first :)

  4. It looks so natural on you! :D
