MAC Smoked Almond, Toast and Butter, Cordovan Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC Smoked Almond Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pinky-brown with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It was nicely pigmented with full-color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture felt a little firm in the tube, but it started to melt as I applied it to my lips. The consistency was a little thicker but did not feel heavy, and it did not well up in lip lines as it seemed to self-level after five minutes of wear. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Grunge (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Buff (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Chai (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C107 (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Mocha (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Molasses (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Stallion, Blue Beat, Galaxy Grey Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC Stallion Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, inky black with neutral undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It was very pigmented with a lightly glossy, smooth consistency. I did have some issues with the color adhering to the center of my lip, so there’s a bit of translucency there. The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear without the color sliding around over time. On me, the color wore well for seven hours and was non-drying. NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C604 (P, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $17.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) (LE, $30.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Tarte Naughty (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC In the Spirit (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar).

MAC Hellebore, Ambrosial, Marsala Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC Hellebore Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had good pigmentation but was not “one-stroke” coverage. After about half of a pass on the lips, the consistency started to melt and felt more gel-like as I applied it, but it tugged a bit initially. The color applied fairly evenly, but the application would benefit from a lip liner underneath for better, more even coverage overall. This shade lasted nicely for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Speedball (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Strong Woman (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Own the Look (LE, $19.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Violet Vixen (P, $7.49) is cooler (85% similar). Smashbox Violet Riot (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar).
