MAC NEW Liptensity Collection

press-sampleIt isn’t often I have the privilege to play with makeup that is just so amazingly photogenic. I mean, these amazing limited-edition lipstick tubes from the MAC Liptensity collection are so gorgeous, I even had a blast playing with them before I actually applied the product to my lips!

To develop the collection, MAC tapped the talents of tetrachromat Maureen Seaberg.  Maureen is one of few with the genetic ability to see up to 100 million hues of color the average human eye can’t distinguish.  The result is a collection of 24 lipstick shades with amazing color payoff and lustre!  The new MAC Liptensity lipstick collection will be available online starting September 20, and on-counter from September 21-November 17, 2016.  Colors range from black to a pale neutral.  I’ll be publishing a more in-depth look at the collection tomorrow, including swatches of EVERY SINGLE COLOR!

Retail price is $21 US, and $25 CAD.

MAC Liptensity will be available at MACCosmetics.com! Other retailers that carry this MAC product line are Nordstrom.com, Bloomingdales.com, Macys.com and Saks.com.

I am so incredibly spoiled by IT Cosmetics. After testing so many amazing IT Cosmetics product, I hold the brand in such high regard I expect to be “wowed” by every new product they release. IT Cosmetics is simply an excellent balance of price and product quality.  This brand delivers excellence, plain and simple, but doesn’t drain your wallet.

Light Swatch, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination

The NEW Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination is a neutral tone that leans slightly orange (great for cancelling out blue hues under eye).  This product now contains the “Drops of Light Technology” that helps brighten the look of your skin while delivering full coverage.  It’s quite an amazing concealer!

Bye Bye Pores Blush

Bye Bye Pores Blush

This blush in the shade “Naturally Pretty” is a sophisticated coral that is a great addition to your Springtime routine!  The formula utilizes the IT Cosmetics “Bye Bye Pores” technology that prevents product from settling into enlarged pores and fine lines.  This product delivers buildable coverage, and can be as intense as you wish!

The finishing power is indeed transclucent.  It adds a touch of a mattifying finish to the skin.  My pores are more pronounced as I get older, and as a result I’ve had to stop using some powder products.  Not this beauty by IT Cosmetics!

What will the price be for this TSV!  As I’m writing this, I don’t know!  You’ll have to click HERE to shop for this TSV on QVC.com and see what the steal will be!
