I knew exactly what I wanted and bought three out of the five available lipsticks and a lip liner.
PARTY PARROT is a bright pink-coral with a matte finish. Despite being matte it has a creamy texture and doesn’t drag on the skin of the lips during application.
STRONG WOMAN is a dark purple which has bright undertones. It has opaque coverage, again with a matte finish and applies smoothly.
PINK PIGEON is a super bright, blue-based pink with a matte finish. I find that blue-based fuschia’s suit my skin tone quite well, so I had to buy this. This lasted for approx five hours when I wore it yesterday afternoon – despite eating and drinking.
Overall I’m really impressed with these lipsticks. As I mentioned, I was a bit dubious about the finish as all my other matte lipsticks from MAC are drying and not the most comfortable to wear but these have really impressed me. I’m very pleased with my purchases.
The MAC Strength collection is currently available online and on counter – although you may have a bit of difficulty tracking the lipsticks down now.
MAC Strength lipsticks are £14 each.
