MAC Strong Woman Lipstick

MAC STRENGTH COLLECTION
Strong Woman ($15 for .10 oz) is described as bright violet with a matte finish.  This color seems to have a touch of magenta in it which i'm not too crazy about.  It reminds me a lot of MAC's spitfire which I sold to a person because it was a magenta purple color that I don't like reaching for.  A lot of people of comparing this lipstick to MAC's Heroine lipstick but I honestly prefer the latter.  Also,  a blogger said that Strong Woman was comparable to MAC's Up the Amp, which as you will see below it is definitely not even close.

Packaging
The packaging is just the normal black bullet casing that MAC has for all of their lipsticks. Nothing different here.
Performance
This matte glides on smooth and evenly with a lot of color.  The texture of this matte is great.  Other than me not really feeling the color too much which is not MAC's fault, the lipstick is really a good one.
