MAC describes it as a “mid-tone berry”.

 

Price: 990 INR for 3 g 

My take on the MAC Brick-o la: 

I had a crush on this color since long and I knew sooner or later, this shade would definitely find a special place in my kitty. And here I am sharing my views on this versatile shade from the Amplified crème range of MAC.

Shade: Brick-o-la is not just a berry color. I find it more to be a berry pink and the shade even shows hints of brown. The shade can be an amazing neutral/everyday sort of shade that would suit all skin tone beautifully. The shade is subtle, elegant and can be worn to compliment any type of look.

 

The shade suits me pretty well and I like to wear it quite often. The color is dark enough to be a great choice for the fall.

Texture: This is my first lipstick from the Amplified crème range and as the name suggest, the texture is buttery smooth and highly pigmented. One swipe is all you get the burst of color on the lips and the lips feel hydrated too. I prefer applying it using a lip brush for a more precise and toned down look.

 

Shade does not settle in fine lines and fades away easily. I have seen it transferring easily immediately after application.

Staying power: The shade stays on for 4 hours on me with a meal in between which is good considering the creamy texture.

 

Swatch!

Packaging: Usual black matte encasing with a firm bullet housed inside. There are no chances of melting of the lipstick even in hot weather.
