Mac lipstick in Absolute Power is from the recent limited edition collection named “Strength“. Described as a pinky red with blue undertones, it is an absolutely gorgeous shade, light enough for day wear and punchy enough for an evening out. It actually came out a lot brighter than I thought it would and is extremely pigmented, so be sure to exfoliate your lips before applying this as any dry, flaky skin won’t look good with this lipstick, especially because it also has a matte finish. I never use to think red lips suited me, but I’m slowly warming to it now and can hopefully be a bit more brave soon and branch out in to the darker reds.
Unfortunately, Absolute Power it is not available from the UK or US site anymore, but I would strongly recommend trying out the stores as they may have some last one’s hanging about.
Have you tried anything from the Strength collection?
