MAC Beetroot Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark, purply plum with warm, pink undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was firmer in the tube and melted upon contact with the lips, so it took a second or two to warm up and really glide effortlessly across my lips. It wore well for six hours, left a slight stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.12 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense amounts of pigment” with a gel-like texture that melts on lips that leaves behind a satin finish and wears for “eight hours.” It’s supposed to be “comfortable” to wear, but there are no claims about hydration–and overall, they were non-drying.

The majority of the range varied from semi-opaque to fully opaque in one stroke, while the texture had some body and thickness to it but was not heavy. The consistency feels firmer in the tube, but it became softer and more pliable as it warmed up against the lips. This was also true about how the color settled and looked on the lips–it tended to fill up lip lines without emphasizing them as much after thirty seconds of wear. The formula didn”t have a lot of slip, and it was actually lightly tacky, which helped it stay in place better.

The wear ranged from four to eight hours with lighter shades typically wearing shorter than deeper and more intense shades. The finish was anywhere from satin to natural with noticeable sheen, sometimes glossiness, but it often wore to a satin to semi-matte finish after a few hours. The formula has MAC’s typical vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

Bite o' Georgia

MAC Bite o’ Georgia Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light, peachy coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply as evenly as most of the Liptensity range has in the past. This one seemed almost grainy as bits of color seemed to clump up on my lips. Even though it had a glossier, the color read chalky. The texture was smooth, firm in the bullet with slight tackiness. It wore well for four and a half hours and was non-drying.
