When I am after a brand new lipstick, I always find myself navigating towards my nearest MAC Cosmetics counter. It is fair to say that when it comes to offering you a ridiculous array of colours, textures, intensities and finishes, MAC has it all! And just when you thought they couldn’t cram any more options into their much-instagrammed arrangement of lipsticks, MAC have released 24 new lip colours forming the new Liptensity range.
This new collection is all about an extreme, unprecedented spectrum of colour intensity. There is nothing shy about these new lipsticks. They are bold, unashamed and use a new pigment technology that deliver a show-stopping colour and finish. If you love your bright lips then this range is for you! You can expect every colour of the rainbow here from your reds, pinks, oranges and browns to some unexpected additions too. Blue or black lipstick anyone??
Above I have featured Burnt Violet (dark plum), Habanero (vibrant orange-red), Gumball (creamy blush pink) and Double Fudge (intense dark brown). All such striking shades that seem to last and last on my lips. My only bugbear is the flat-shaped bullet. It does make it tricky to apply the lip colour precisely and I would highly recommend a lip brush to accompany these intense lipsticks. Other than that, this new collection certainly packs a punch and even has some stunning nude shades for those more modest lipstick-wearers out there!
