The MAC ColorRocker Lipstick Line Is Worth The Buy

by Kali Borovic

Think back to the last five lipsticks you bought. Odds are they were probably similar to shades you already had in your collection — after all, you like what you like, right? But it can be easy to slip into a makeup rut. This new launch is here to help with that. MAC Cosmetics' ColourRocker lipstick line features all the unconventional colors you could possibly need. With the exception of a few light pinks, the bold colored, matte range contains mostly bright colors. Even if you're a die-hard neutral lip lover, it is definitely worth checking out.

In case you missed the news, MAC created a 28-shade lipstick line with basically every color of the rainbow represented. I'm talking bright pinks, aquas, purples, and even a lime green. The brand already has pretty much every color of lippie under the sun, which makes this completely unconventional line all the more incredible. According to Teen Vogue, you can shop these shades on the MAC site on Jan. 26.

The ColourRocker shades might be unconventional, but it's a step in the right direction for beauty in 2017. Although the nude lippie trend isn't going anywhere — take Bite Beauty's Edgy Nudes collection, Tarte's Color Splash Lipstick range, and even the master of color Urban Decay's Vice Liquid Lipstick launch, which focused mainly on the subtle shades (with a few exceptions). All those neutrals are great, but we need color, people!

Of course, it's easy to sell people on a range of neutrals because just about everyone feels like they could use one in their collection. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for risk! Even if you have only ever loved neutrals, the ColourRocker collection is a great way to add a bright pop of color to your look. There's a range of more subtle to super bold shades, so you can start with bright pinks or, yes, even browns, and work your way to electric blue. It's not every day that you see a line this jam-packed with color, which could be a great change of pace for your neutral-filled makeup bag.

It seems like 2017 just might be the year of colorful lipstick. In addition to MAC's new release, Kat Von D Beauty just shared 25 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shades and a great deal of them are bold. If this is a sign of trends to come, then I'm excited to see which brands decide to hop on the unconventional shade bandwagon. It looks like it's off to a great start with MAC's ColourRocker Collection.

Each ColourRocker Lipstick will be $17, and seeing as these shades are so bold and unique to the brand, they're definitely worth the price. If you ask me, this is a major indicator of what's to expect this year when it comes to lipstick.
