I snatched the thing up and swept out like a dramatic bitch. But after plastering it on in the car on the way home, I looked in the rear view mirror and turned that frown upside down; rather than making me look like an incompetent and/or murderous transvestite, GAT slapped me with a dose of very slightly blue-leaning My Little Pony bubblegum pink that was not so much violently objectionable as unexpectedly flattering. Which is probably why it's one of the superstars in MAC's permanent range. RIGHT: L- GAT, R- FF.
Define fuchsia. Um, sort of pink? With a bit of red. But not red red. Sort of more like... pink. You know... like the flower. I could go on. Let's settle this right now; having stared at a lot of pinks and fuchsias in the course of composing this review, its my opinion that fuchsia is generally warmer than pink, despite its varying degrees of red and blue, and that this really is the most meaningful differential.
We'll talk Girl About Town (Amplified) first. GAT began my (admittedly pretty narrow) dalliance with true pink. I picked it up on a whim while B2M'ing; here in NZ we're only allowed to choose between about ten of the most popular MAC shades when scoring freebies, most of them glutinous Kardashian nudes (ew). Yes, that is annoying. The local counter was all out of Ruby Woo, leaving GAT and not much else.
The swatch below is warm, unflashed daylight; the two shades in question rendered really well because the yellow-toned light has helped the camera sensor out.
