MAC Cosmetics latest collection, Liptensity lipsticks.
Am I going to love them?
They are, quite simply, the most highly pigmented lipsticks that MAC has ever made..and quite possibly some of the best I've ever worn. They are SO hydrating and comfortable to wear, and have insanely great staying power. Mine lasted a solid 5-6 hours with no touch-ups (and yes, I did drink wine during some of that time).
What about the finish?
I see it as a satin finish, but I think they're officially described as being demi-matte. Is that the same thing? Who knows? But it's perfect.
How many shades are there, and what are your picks?
There are 24 shades in total, so clearly there'll be something to suit all tastes. I instantly gravitated towards Smoked Almond, but am also obsessed with Doe, Habanero, Fireworks, and Lobster.
How much will they retail for?
The RRP is $50, which is slightly more than other MAC lippies, but I'm a firm believer in paying for quality. Given that you really only need a small amount to begin with (thanks to the colour pay-off), and how bloody long they stay ON- I'd happily fork out $50 when my faves run out.
Are they limited edition?
I am NOT sure- I have heard different things! at first I heard they were, which saddened me, but then I heard 18 of the shades will be staying...WHOOP!
When will they be here in NZ?
On the 10th of October, babies! Set your alarms- the top shades will fly off the shelves.
