If I could only have one lipstick from MAC for the Spring & Summer seasons it would have to be Vegas Volt, a full on bright and in your face pinky Coral. I love it. I’ve wanted to try it for the last two years but have to admit that I was a bit afraid of it, I thought it was too bright. I finally picked it up a few weeks ago using some empties for Back 2 MAC, and now I have to force myself to take a break. I could wear it everyday!
Vegas Volt is described as a Full Power Coral and that it is. The Amplified Creme formula is super creamy, extremely pigmented and long lasting. When the color does wear off it leaves a nice stain. This may just be my favorite formula in MAC lipsticks. Be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to application though as it will settle into cracks and fine lines.
I usually wear Vegas Volt with Wet ‘n Wild Coloricon Lip Liner in Willow (nude brown) to prevent feathering and bleeding, and top it with Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Papaya. This is the perfect combo for me. Brown skinned beauties, stop being afraid of bright lippies. We can rock the boldest of the bolds. It’s all about picking shades complimentary to your complexion with the right undertones, application and confidence. Vegas Volt leans neutral to slightly warm. No worries if you’re cool toned though, you can still rock it.
MAC lipstick retails for $14.50. As far as dupes are concerned, from personal experience I can say that Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in Coral Reef is very similar, but slightly darker. Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Papaya is more complimentary than a dupe.

Other lipsticks that are said to be dupes are Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in Coral Berry & Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in Melonade (discontinued). If you know of any other dupes feel free to leave it in the comments.
