If you are frequent user of MAC cosmetics, then you are likely familiar with their recycling program. You bring back 6 empties, you get a free lipstick, lipgloss, or eyeshadow. Since several of my basic products come from MAC (primer, foundation, powder, paint pot, eyebrow pencil) I have taken advantage of this many times and I always get one of their lipsticks as I am not a huge fan of their glosses or shadows. Lately, I hadn't really seen any interesting or bold lipsticks from MAC so I hoarded up my empties until I had enough for 3 free lipsticks. I decided to go check out a MAC store one day to see if they had anything I liked and THERE THEY WERE: the Strength Collection lipsticks!!! FINALLY! I had found what I was looking for! I didn't really see anyone else post about these on their blogs so I didn't even know about the collection! Also, they are all Matte finishes so the colours are extra bold! SCORE!!
THREE FOR FREE!!!
Firm Form, Strong Woman, Absolute Power.
I JUST LOVE THE NAMES OF THESE!!
This is a fantastic red and it looks quite good on me if I do say so myself! It's probably the most flattering red shade I own!
F**k yeah, this is a very striking, opaque, purple colour! It's like MAC Violetta on steroids!!!
INTERESTING VARIATIONS ON BLACK LIPSTICK FTW!!!! IT looks really funny with my work clothes and makeup as seen above, but it is awesome for clubbing or wearing out! It is a plummy black with gold glitter in it!! Because of the plum and gold tones, I think this could possibly be a wearable daytime colour for ladies with a very deep skin tone.
Did you find the Strength collection exciting? I SURE DID!!! It seems like more ladies gravitated toward the Archie's Girls stuff.
