MAC ended the year on a 'strong' note, with the 'Strength' collection. Most of it was a complete pass for me. But one lipstick really stood out. It's the purple based fuchsia color called 'Strong Woman.'
I swatched this first thing in the morning (when my lips were a bit dry and wrinkly), and I found that mattes are not my friend when that happens. But when my lips are 'normal' -- it's a lot better. This formula really grabs the lips (I even blotted a few times before I got it right).
