Very sophisticated shade. Both a pink and a plum color spectrum member, thus making it perfect for blending with other products to create a one-of-a-kind look. I use it to re-create a lip look I saw used on Gossip Girl on my fav character Blair Waldorf. I start with MAC Burgundy lipliner, filling in the entire lip. I follow with Fast Play, then blot once or twice with tissue. Once it feels "stained in" I light apply red lipstick (use your favorite shade, I use MAC Ruby Woo or Nars Flaming Dust), concentrating on the center of the pout and blot again. If it appear to red, rather them a well-blended plum wine shade, just pass over it with Fast Play again, always blotting in between and correcting lines and edges with the lipliner. Finally, a dab on Mac Lip Balm in Plum Perfect in the center, using my ring finger for light and controlled application. Voila, a glamorous lip look for a night out or a hot date!
I'm not really one who wears lipstick, but this MAC Amplified is lovely! It doesn't dry out my lips, has a great smell, no bad taste and a creamy texture. This is also a nice colour that suits my fair skin.
