My MAC lipstick collection is slowly growing, slow and steady wins the race. The latest color I picked up is the color A14 "Head in the Clouds" which is a bright red with gold shimmer running through it. The color payout is exactly what you would expect from any MAC lipstick, impeccable. The formula is creamy and non drying. The lipstick has a staying power of around three to four hours before I need to reapply it.
