MAC Absolute Power Lipstick - Review, Photos, Swatches

The people closest to me know I'm a feminist, through and through. I was raised by my Grandma and Mama, so yeah go figure. Being with fabulous, strong and nurturing women made me aspire to be the best me. They taught me to celebrate being a woman and go for whatever I want. My gender was never, and would never be, an issue or an obstacle in achieving my dreams.

When I heard MAC Strength Collection, a collection dedicated to the modern woman who doesn't let anything or anyone put her down, won't reach MAC Counters in Asia, I was really pissed. Wanna know why? Click here.

I'm so lucky that I have friends who are nice enough to get the collection for me. Next to MAC Iris Apfel Collection, this would be my 2nd favorite collection. I love the lipstick shades and what the collection stands for. So here is my first lipstick from the said collection. :)

MAC Absolute Power is a blue based, slightly pinky red shade. Its in my favorite matte finish (not the drying kind). Its easy to apply, very opaque in color and is quite long wearing. Even after a full meal, the color is still in tact. After a 2nd meal (snack), a pretty stain was left on my lips. This color and formula did not disappoint at all. :)
