BEAUTY,

MAC Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC recently launched a new lip product called the Liptensity lipsticks. They’re a very pigmented lipstick with a satin finish and supposed to be a one swipe wonder. The line has an impressive 24 color selection ranging from nudes to pinks, reds, purples and a super dark black.

First of all I really like the packaging. The colored tubes represent the shade that you get inside so they’re really nice for storing. I think the shade range is wonderful and you really get a lip shade for every taste. There are some really nice nude shades that are all on the warm side but you also get some pretty vampy shades for fall.

The red selection in the line is also very pretty but the shades tend to be on the similar side with slight variations in the undertone. And last you have two dark and vampy lip shades in dark blue and black. Those shades are not my cup of tea but they’re fun to experiment with and they might even come in handy for Halloween.

The formula of the Liptensity lipsticks is creamy and very pigmented, you get full on pigment with one swipe. They have a satin finish so the lasting power is pretty good, they don’t last as much as a matte or a liquid matte lipstick but they’re super comfortable to wear and don’t bleed or smear through the day so you don’t have to wear a lipliner if you don’t feel like it.
