Colour plus texture for lips. Stands out on the runway and simmers on the street. It’s what made M∙A∙C famous. Limited-edition soft-touch bronze packaging.
This review is for the four (4) limited edition Lipsticks releasing with MAC’s Temperature Rising Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Altered Beige: Creamy yellow beige (Lustre)
- Feel My Pulse: Vivid magenta violet (Cremesheen)
- Sheer Seduction: Super dazzle bronze (Dazzle)
- Caliente: Super dazzle violet (Dazzle)
Altered Beige is a creamy nude without shimmer. This shade is translucent, so you won’t get an opaque layer of color, even with layering. This is a good nude shade that lightens your lips without making them look sickly.
Feel My Pulse is a red-violet that looks more pink on the lips than in the tube and gives off a semi-opaque finish.
Sheer Seduction is a bronze-copper with lots of pink and gold glitter particles. This shade is more shimmer than underlying color, which means it’s easy for the lipstick to become patchy-looking, especially if you rub your lips together.
Caliente is a deep brown-plum with lots of purple and gold glitter particles. Like with Sheer Seduction, this shade is more glitter particles than underlying pigment, which can lead to a splotchy finish.
These Lipsticks cost $16.50 and contain 0.1 ounces (3 grams) each. The price increase is purely due to MAC’s use of a different color for the packaging in this collection.
