Happy Tuesday! Ready for some MAC Liptensity Lipstick swatches?
MAC Liptensity Lipstick is a brand new collection of 24 lipstick shades, which I have to say, I am SUPER impressed with! They worked with Maureen Seaberg on the Liptensity Lipstick line, and she is a tetrachromat. What the heck is that? It’s someone who has the genetic ability to see up to 100 million hues that the average person cannot see. The formula is made with their groundbreaking “High-Frequency Tectrachromatic Pigments” technology, which makes them very pigmented and easy to apply.
The other thing which I love about these is that the color of the tube matches exactly the color of the lip shade. No guess-work!
Driftwood is a light lilac/beige.
Medium Rare is a soft pink.
Gumball is a flamingo pink.
Postmodern is a bright coral/pink.
Eros is a warm-toned hot pink.
Claretcast is a mid-tone magenta.
Ambrosial is a bright purple/pink.
Galaxy Grey is a light lilac/grey.
Hellebore is a bright mid-tone purple.
Habanero is a bright orange/red.
Lobster is a burnt orange.
Mulling Spices is a burgundy brown/red.
Life’s Blood is a bright berry red.
Marsala is a deep magenta pink.
Toast and Butter is a peach/cinnamon.
Cordovan is a deep rose/red.
Dionysus is a dark plum.
Double Fudge is a dark brown.
Burnt Violet is a dark plum.
Blue Beat is a deep dark blue.
Stallion is a deep black.
Wow that was a lot of swatches and I am actually missing three of them (Fireworks, a bright red, Doe, a neutral brown, and Smoked Almond, a bright rose/brown). As you can tell from the photos some of the lighter shades did a teeny bit of lip line settling, but remember, these are extremely up-close photos so in real life it’s barely noticeable. I found these to be creamy, easy to apply and extremely pigmented. For some reason I think because they look kind of like a “lip butter” I thought they would have a more sheer finish, but not at all! A few of the deeper shades are very slightly patchy and you have to go over them a few times to get them even, but it’s nothing major.
My personal favorite shades are Galaxy Grey, Eros, Ambrosial, Habanero, Mulling Spices, Lobster, Life’s Blood and Blue Beat.
MAC Liptensity Lipstick is available now until November 17th on the MAC site and they are $21.00 each.
