I don’t usually do single reviews of lipsticks but MAC Craving is a beauty that is worthy of quick mention. Described by MAC as a “burst of plum”, it comes across to me as a deep, warm plummy pink. In other words, there isn’t so much plum where one might feel that a shade like this should be reserved for the cooler months – its definitely a year round option.
This is only my first lipstick in the Amplified formula. I do own Vegas Volt but it’s technically an Amplified Creme. The Amplifieds overall offer the kind of opaque coverage you’d expect from a Matte formula but are much less drying. In addition to even and comfortable application on the lips, the pigmentation is on point. So saturated! Craving also has great staying power especially considering how creamy it is – I’d say 4-5 hours without eating/drinking. But what really sells this baby? How smoothly it applies to the lips without settling into lip lines.
My love affair with this formula has definitely kicked into high gear. I only wish that they offered more colors. Which shades do you recommend from the either the Amplified or Amplified Creme range?
