PR Sample|Affiliated Link

Hi loves, I am so excited to share with you guys swatches and my thoughts on some of the new MAC Liptensity lipsticks. I made a blog post a couple posts back on the information of these new lipsticks. And surprisingly MAC sent me a package with all of them! I have finally been able to test these out for you guys and since there is a lot of shades, I want to divide the post up into three different posts. So for todays post I will be covering the blues and the berry shades. Then the next post will contain reds and pinks, and lastly nudes and browns! I think MAC did a wonderful job when it came to color selection. There is a lot of fun shades and also a lot of great everyday shades. 

These lipsticks have really high pigmentation and retail for $21.00 each. They are currently available at and

So the 8 shades I will be sharing with you today are:
  • Stallion which is a deep black
  • Blue Beat which is a deep dark blue
  • Galaxy Grey which is a light bluish grey 
  • Hellebore which is a vibrant mid-ton purple
  • Ambrosial which is a bright plum pink
  • Marsala which is a deep magenta pink
  • Claretcast which is a mid ton magenta
  • Eros which is a warm hot pink
I thought all of the shades performed really well and have amazing pigmentation. They have a nice creamy texture and apply easily. The only one that I didn't find as opaque was Blue Beat, but other then that they were all amazing.I included a ton of photos for you guys as well as swatches. Let me know in the comments below what your favorite shade is!
