There was a time when I could spend the whole day glued on to my computer and play strategy games(read Age of Empires );those were the good times…Sigh!!…These days all I do is check my mail and browse online stores at unearthly hours and of course get my daily dose of beauty updates from my favourite bloggers. Did I stray a little off topic??Was sharing some random thoughts when my mind could process just the word play in my new favourite lipstick which is MAC Fastplay Lipstick.
Fastplay belongs to the Amplified crème family which is one of MAC’s better moisturising formulas, a shade they describe as a neutral pink and part of the permanent collection. My lips are a bit on the pigmented side with a hint of mauve and a single swipe is enough for full blown creamy colour which is exactly why this gets elevated to MLBB status. This is one shade that I find shows up different on different skin tones-For me its mauve-ish with pink undertones although the MAC MUA said it looks like a pink with brown undertone(that’s Twig on me).
The texture is easy to work with and with 3-4 swipes it gives a very sexy pout and becomes semi matte with time so you would’nt need to reapply it often. Since a single swipe gives me full coverage I never pile on more which makes the staying power pretty mediocre but the colour fades leaving an even tint on the lips. Also because of their creamy formula your lips won’t feel parched but I must point out that they are not as moisturizing as the Revlon colorburst or the NYX round lippies.The colour doesn’t settle into fine lines and on me it gives the impression of slighted plumped up healthy lips.
What I like about Mac Fastplay Lipstick
Gives true colour in a single swipe
Creamy and does’nt dry out the lips
Does’nt settle into fine lines-overall lips look smooth
Its an everyday kind of shade
Perfectly complements a smokey or even a neutral eye
Would flatter most skin tones(very fair skinned ladies beware(NC20& below),this might look garish on you)
Love the signature vanilla scent(I go bonkers over anything vanilla that I bought Vanille EDT by Mollinard ages ago-It transforms me into an icecream cone-not quite so cool,I know)
The staying power is around 3-4 hours on me so I find myself reapplying this everytime I visit the washroom

Rating- 4/5 or A
Recommendation: Fast Play is a great everyday lipstick – specially for medium to dark girls. Being an Amplified Cream, its an instant burst of color which will cover up all your pigmented lips!
