MAC Liptensity Lipstick Swatches

Hello, class! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful September! Today I want to talk about a new product from MAC, their Liptensity lipstick line.


According to MAC, Liptensity is:

A brilliant formula that pushes the boundaries of colour. Each Lipstick holds intense amounts of pigment, resulting in extreme colour intensity, clarity and vibrancy. This luxurious gelled base melts on contact, providing fully saturated colour with a satin finish in one stroke.

So I wasn’t initially interested in the Liptensity line. It seemed gimmicky, and I was unsure of the balm-like shape of the lipstick. But then I saw some amazing swatches on Beauty Products Are My Cardio and my mind was changed.

I’ve played with three colors-

Driftwood – Soft lilac beige
Toast and Butter – Peachy cinnamon
Galaxy Grey – Light bluish grey


The Liptensity lipsticks come in a matte tube that matches the color of the product. Win! (Does anyone else HATE having to turn over every single standard MAC lipstick to see what shade it is?)

As advertised, the Liptensity shades stay true to color on the lips. More importantly, they are incredibly comfortable. In fact, they are almost moisturizing. Yet, they do no slip or feather the way many comfortable lipsticks do. Basically I’m in love and I may need more (hello, Fall reds!)

Out of the three, Driftwood and Toast and Butter are certainly the more wearable. However, you know I love me some Galaxy Grey. But I’ll be saving that one for the weekends!

There are currently 24 shades of Liptensity available, and I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve tried any other colors!
