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.

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.

Kat Von D Ophelia Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium, peachy-coral with a matte finish and warm undertones. It had good color payoff, but it wasn’t quite opaque–I would definitely do a second coat. The consistency was thinner than the average shade in the ELL range, but it went on fairly evenly, though there were a couple of visible streaks that never quite leveled as it dried down. It lasted for six hours and faded evenly over time, and the formula was slightly drying over time.

MAC Indigo-go Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dark, slightly muted, navy blue with cool undertones and a soft, natural sheen. It had good pigmentation–more pigmented than I thought based on the initial swatch–that went on fairly evenly. The consistency had moderate slip, which made it more comfortable to wear over the five and a half hours it lasted. I had a bit of trouble getting the lipstick to adhere well to the center of my lip both times I wore it (once for photos, once for testing), but it seemed to go on fine everywhere else. This shade did stain my lips a bluish-violet after wear, while the formula was slightly hydrating overall.

Believer

Hourglass Believer GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, pinky beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied somewhat evenly. The lighter color paired with the more balm-like texture seemed to result in slight unevenness and a greater tendency for the color to dwell in my lip lines. I also saw slight “lines” if I pressed my lips together. It had a creamy, comfortable-to-wear kind of texture that didn’t tug on the lips and felt hydrating over the three hours it lasted on me.
