MAC's Embrace Me lip pencil and MAC Absolute Power lipstick - Review

I must admit that I wasn't to crazy about the MAC's Strength Spring 2013 Collection. I think the promotional shot with Jelena Abbou, a Serbian-American IFBB Pro Figure competitor,  put me just bit off. The collection looked way to strong and to dark for my liking.  But two things really stood out for me: the Embrace Me lip pencil and  the Absolute Power lipstick.

 MAC Embrace Me lip pencil
 Embrace Me  lip pencil is not completely new, and it has been released few times over the couple years in various collections, but I just never got my fingers on it.  It's a beautiful vivid fuchsia, a truly unique shade.  The pencil glides on easily so long as your lips have been primed with foundation or lip primer. 
This is a perfect shade for bright pink lips as seen on Giles Spring 2013 Fashion Show. The key is to keep the face  clean and fresh and let the lips do the talking. This was one of  favorite make-up looks of the S/S 2013 season.

MAC Absolute Power lipstick

Another favorite from MAC's Strength Collection is the Absolute Power lipstick. This is a rich deep pink-red with blue undertones and a semi matte finish. It looks very deep, almost burgundy in the tube but on the lips it's so bright,  rich and vibrant, perfect cherry red.  It is bit similar to Ruby Woo, only less matte and more creamy.  Really great shade for those little black dress occasions.

Did you get anything from the MAC's Strength Spring 2013 Collection?

  3. Hi Marina! I think your mouth looks great with every shades! But I felt in love with the lip pencil and how it suits you!! So cool and in trend for the new season!! Kisses dear!:*

  4. I love both of the colors on you!!! Embrace Me is a great color that I just can't wear often. I have only one fuchsia lipstick and still struggle to wear it in full color. Just a bit too purple for me.

  5. I'm loving that red shade, so sexy!

  6. Adorable lipsticks! Haven't got anything from MAC)

  7. I bought the lip pencil and have been wearing it alone too. Such a beautiful colour. I really wanted Party Parrot lipstick but it was sold out :((
