I think we can all agree that when it comes to lipsticks the people at MAC are absolute rock stars! Between the gazillion shades and formulations, there is something there for everyone. Honestly, I didn't think that there could be anything in the world of MAC lipsticks that would wow me more than what's already on offer, but the new collection... WOW!
The Liptensity range is a new lipstick formula that pushes the boundaries of colour. Each Lipstick holds intense amounts of pigment, resulting in extreme colour intensity, clarity and vibrancy. The new range has been created in collaboration with Maureen Seaberg, a tetrachromat, which (if, like me, you don’t know what that is...) means she can see about 100 times more colours than the average person. She worked with MAC’s creative team to make the 24 shades in the range to ensure they were as pigmented and true to colour as possible.
And, oh boy, are those lipsticks pigmented! The formula is not dissimilar to the MAC Creamsheen one, it's not 100% matte but not really glossy either. It's also much denser and richer in texture and, of course, way more pigmented! The result is incredible! Of you are into bold lips, this collection is for you! From statement nude pinks, intense reds and super bold dark shades - these are not for the faint-hearted!
I love the reds in this collection but the shades i find most interesting and am really drawn to are the intensely dark purples burgundies and browns. My favourite in the entire collection is Burnt Violet, an extremely dark plum colour.
They're available on counter now and are €22, not cheap but worth it. This collection is definitely worth checking out!
