The eagle has landed! As in MAC Cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick have finally dropped and are now available for a limited time. Many of you saw their launch party on my snap — or every other beauty editors social media. No one wanted to miss this mega launch for the brand!
MAC is always pushing the boundaries of colour and finding new innovation. They aren’t afraid to color outside the lines and for this collection they partnered with tetrachromat (that’s a new vocab word for me too), Maureen Seaberg — who has the genetic ability to see up to 100 million hues imperceptible to the average naked eye. Let me break this down for you — if we as “normal” people see somewhere around the million shade spectrum, she would see 100 million.
Working with Maureen, M·A·C created, Liptensity, an unprecedented spectrum of 24 shades with extreme, undeniable colour intensity, using their new groundbreaking High-Frequency Tetrachromatic Pigments technology.
I highly recommend them. They go on like balms, and have this rich color that lasts. They are designed to be the same color on all skintones, and for me were incredibly true to shade. What you see on the packaging (which I love by the way) is what I got when I swatch it on my hands and on my lips.
Left to right these are shades: Galaxy Grey, Lobster and Ambrosial. They are easy to apply, and you don’t have to build them. It’s love at first swipe, packed with gorgeous pigment and they are very lightweight.
Also new from MAC is their Trend Forecast Spring 2017 Collection which features a lip palette, eye palette and two new Studio Eye Gloss shades, Clear as Glass (pictured above), which is like lip gloss for your eyes. They are also introducing the Next Up Neon shade which is a high shine “iodine” yelloworange.
For spring 2017 MAC predicts shades of pale pink to deep berry, which I’m all for. It’s a beautiful, very wearable range of lippies. They go on like a gloss meets lipstick, a pretty stain to each shade that isn’t intense but still carries it’s shade.
The cream eye shadow palette I have to play around with more. It’s a whole spectrum of colors from soft cinnamon, pink to bright green, eggplant and denim blue.
