MAC colour rocker matte lipstick collection

MAC is the queen of limited edition collections. They always have one on the shelves, and another stunner about to be released. In January they released a limited edition collection of 35 bold matte lipsticks including just about every matte colour you could dream up. Today I am here with five of them, and each one is exclusive to this collection!
I was sent five shades from this collection, and if we are being honest I would say that each of them was outside of my comfort zone. One of the coolest things, in my opinion, about being a beauty blogger is being sent products that you would never buy. Now, hear me out. If I was buying something from this collection it would be pink or red (aka: safe). However as a blogger I get the opportunity to try shades that are so different from my usual.

SO! With an open mind, and lips that are never fully ready for a matte swatch session...

Uncontrollable - Baked Orange

I found this to be the best shade that I tried. Not only is it the most wearable, but I found it had the best formula: matte, full coverage, with an easy application.

Cold Hard Cash - Neutral taupe

I was not a fan of this shade. Not only was the colour not particularly flattering on my skin tone, but it was not as matte as the others I tried. I found application to be a bit splochy. 

Gritty Girl - Light cool brown

Compared to Cold Hard Cash this formula was not as full coverage. I found it comfortable on the lips, though patchy to apply.
Deep With Envy - Forest green

I never thought I would be wearing green lipstick... however this was a good formula. Easy to apply, full coverage, and really really pigmented!

Mean Green - Machine green

This shade was probably the most interesting that I tried. At first glance I thought it was black, but it was really a very deep green with a bit of a sheen to it. I had the most trouble getting this one on because there was really no room for error.

When your eyes match your lipstick... wearing Deep With Envy.

Overall this is a really unique collection-- every colour you can think of in their signature matte formula. It launched in January (but as I have mentioned, the move has my posting schedule a bit disrupted) and each lipstick retails for $17 CAD. You can redeem your Back To MACs for these if you so choose. I think I have enough empties waiting to be swapped in for something new.

PS-- these matte lip swatches were made possible by the gentle makeup removal of the Herb Day Lip & Eye Makeup Remover Tissues by The Face Shop. Seriously-- these melt off matte lipstick so gently! A new blogging essential. 

Have you tried anything from this collection? Lady Danger is my all time favourite matte MAC lipstick!
