Between and Taraji P Henson’s sold-out line, Ariana Grande’s dope Viva Glam shades and the upcoming Selena Quintanilla collection, it’s clear that MAC is killing the cosmetics game this year — and they’re not even close to being done.
They’ve recently announced a brand new line of lipsticks that boasts 24 new shades that you cannot buy anywhere else. See, MAC enlisted the help of tetrachromat Maureen Seaberg, who can see up to 100 million shades that most people can't, to create these mesmerizing and innovative hues. So basically, she's super human.
Created with ‘high-frequency tetrachromatic pigments,’ the colors in this branded collection range from beautiful nudes to show-stopping reds to haunting blacks and greys. Not only are they packaged in the sleekest case, according to Metro UK, the base of the shades are clear, as opposed to the typical opaque, which means the color on your lips will match exactly what’s in the tube. Now, who doesn’t want that?
Can’t choose? No worries. Here are four favorites that we know will look amazing on all skin tones:
Liptensity Lipstick in Mulling Spices, $21
Will this be our new Ruby Woo?
