Digging It

MAC Digging It Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, mahogany brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightly creamy so it didn’t tug on my lips when I applied the color directly from the tube, but the consistency sat well on the lips and did not slide around over the six hours this shade lasted for. I noticed a slight, reddish stain left behind after wear. The formula was non-drying to me.

Muneca

Kat Von D Muneca Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage if I applied two distinct layers. The consistency was thin, prone to streaking, and while I typically find that the formula self-levels while drying down, it did not with this shade. It lasted for five hours on me and faded more noticeably from the center of the mouth–a lot shorter in wear than the majority of the range. The consistency also seemed thinner and more watery to me. The formula was neither hydrating nor drying on me.

Liberator

Hourglass Liberator GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark berry with reddish undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage. The finish was luminous without being too glossy or emollient, so the wear time wasn’t compromised, but my lips looked smoother and plumper. This shade wore well for just over five hours and left a subtle stain behind. The formula felt hydrating to my lips.

The GIRL Lip Stylo formula is supposed to have “modern color with luxurious hydration for a lustrous finish,” while the brand founder is quoted (on Sephora) stating, “I can build as much–or as little–color as I like.” I would describe the coverage semi-opaque and buildable, which seemed to fit the brand’s description. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lightweight, but the color still adhered well to the lips (three to five hours, depending on the shade). I definitely felt like I could apply a little here, a little there, and then spread the color out by pressing my lips together for sheerer coverage, or I could apply a single layer and get semi-opaque coverage fairly easily. The formula was incredibly comfortable to wear: lightweight, hydrating, and smoothing. Some balm-like formulas that have more coverage can sit in lip lines, but I felt like these filled them and made them look softer. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

MAC City Slick Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque in one layer, with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that didn’t feel too heavy or too thin on the lips. For such a light shade, it actually applied quite well without any liner, lip brush, or extra effort, but it is still a shade that would work better with a lip primer or lip liner underneath. I find that very light shades like this tend to need a liner if only to help soften the edges of the lips so they are neater. The lipstick lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

MAC Viva Glam Taraiji P. Henson Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a slightly firmer consistency in the tube. The texture was smooth, cream-like but did tug on the lips just a tad (not uncomfortably, though). On me, the color lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

Editor’s Note: This review was originally posted on January 18th. I’ve changed the date to February 2nd to coincide with new Viva Glam products now being available on MAC’s website 🙂

Seeker

Hourglass Seeker GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, pop of pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque coverage, though it required two layers for truly full coverage results. The soft, emollient, and balm-like texture made application easy and comfortable to do straight from the tube, but it also made it possible to get sheerer coverage by applying less and smoothing the color out by pressing my lips together, if desired. On me, the color wore well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.
