MAC Liptensity Lipsticks

Toast and Butter, Eros, Marsala, Dionysus, Smoked Almond, Burnt Violet, Habanero
 Ready for the most deeply pigmented lipsticks? To put your lips boldly forward? Check out MAC's new Liptensity lipstick collection.

This huge 24 shade collection has such a range including several reds, browns, wine, purple, fuschia, orange. With the exception of the light caramel nudes and one lighter pink these are not for the faint of lip. One swipe gives you full deep pigment that lasts.  MAC uses what is called their exclusive High Frequency Tetrachromatic Pigments technology.

This is a new formula as well as a new case, the case being the same shade as the tube inside. It's creamy and blends pretty easily but it isn't overly moisturizing and with a few of the deepest shades I had a little drag on the lips where it didn't fully cover. Most shades did not have this problem though. The finish is a semi matte, almost satin and has a slight sheen but with no shimmer or pearl .

For me, personally I am liking to add a touch of balm over or under these for better blending and moisture. That's personal preference though.  And something I do with most matte type formulas.

Wear time here is great. These last long at full strength and when they start to fade you are left with a stain. Morning to noon went with them at a stain after about 3 hours.

MAC Liptensity are $21 each,  available online Sept. 20, in stores Sept.21-Nov. 17.

I have a feeling these will sell out fast , so grab the shades you love .
