MAC Leading Lady Red Lipstick

MAC Leading Lady Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with subtle, cooler pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a velvety, smooth, light-medium thick texture that applied well without dragging or skipping. It had opaque color coverage that sat well on the lips. The color wore well for six hours and left a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay 714 (LE, $18.00) is more muted, warmer, less glossy (95% similar).

MAC Retro Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep brown-red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red-burgundy with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied well and didn’t skip or tug on the lips when applied from the tube. The texture is comfortable without having too much slip or being too clingy. On me, the color lasted for five and a half hours and stained. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Poison (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Starlett Scarlet Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “true red.” It’s a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture had a little more slip compared to the other two shades, though it was still more of the velvety-smooth variety that MAC has been putting out for their matte finishes. It had mostly opaque coverage that applied smoothly and evenly. This shade lasted for five and a half hours, left behind a stain, and was non-drying.
